TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
This gorgeous boy hasn’t been blessed with lots of confidence. In fact he is one of the shyest dogs we’ve had in for awhile.
He had an extremely close bond with one the kennel staff in his racing kennels and we’re sure he must be missing her very much.
She told us that once he feels safe with/around you he will cope much better. In fact they decided racing wasn’t for him as he’d start off well, but always run towards this member of staff rather than the finishing line!
Patch is quite sensitive to sound so we think he’d like a family when there are certainly no young children, if any, and not many visitors. He will need to live in a quiet area with little traffic.
One of our volunteers took him to the park and to her home for an afternoon. She also reported that he startled with loud noises, but soon settled and even had a little play with a squeaky tennis ball.
He was particularly taken by her 14 year old daughter was calm with him. When she popped to the loo kept going out to check whether she was coming back.
In the house he was impeccably behaved, leaving everything in its place and using the garden for toileting. So as you can see Patch has lots of potential to be a great pet in the right home.
So we’re looking for adopters who understand shy dogs and the need to just “let them be” and not to rush them. Patch will come around if he can go at his own pace and once he trusts you with love you with all his soul.
If you can be Patch’s next ‘special person’ then give us a ring on 0121 426 4810 or contact us to come and meet this lovely boy.
