My name is Patch 3 and this is my story: I’m a Jack Russel mix (maybe Beagle) born July 2009 and sold in September of 09. 7 months later (April 2010) I was sold again, this time to be a 12 year old’s gift. Great idea, two athletic boys to keep me busy… Two athletic boys who are on hockey teams, soccer teams, and involved with lots of after school activities… Result? I’m left in a cage up to 12 hours a day, and nobody has time for me.
So here we are April 2011, I’m now going on 2 and looking for what I hope to be my final home. You have to know that even tough I’m not a high energy dog, I do have some Jack Russel, maybe some Beagle, and require a certain amount of exercise and activity for us to be a happy family.
I am fully house trained, okay with most dogs, but having never been socialized with them some dogs intimidate me and I don’t necessarily react well. However I’m making progress as I am now getting out in the world. Sophie thinks I can be a great family dog, I love kids and I am very cuddly and affectionate.
Ideally I’m looking for someone who will exercise me by either biking, hiking, jogging, rollerblading or someone with a couple of teenagers who will throw a frisbee around, play fetch and get me running. Are you that person or family?
