Patty is a lovely girl who is looking for her forever home. Patty has been with us since June 2017 and we don’t understand why she hasn’t been snapped up already, as she is such a wonderful girl! She is always happy to greet her handlers and will frequently wait at her kennel door with her favourite toy until someone comes to give her some attention.

Patty loves attention and her carers have found that when taking her into our on-site home environment, she will follow them around the house not wanting to let them out of her sight. When she gets settled, she loves to snuggle up on the sofa and cuddle with her carers like a true lap dog! Patty will tolerate being picked up, but she prefers to be on her own 4 paws. 

When being mixed with other dogs, Patty has shown that she does not get along with them. Due to her behaviour with other dogs she is muzzled when out on her walks, but she will be more than happy to walk past them without any issues as long as they do not get into her space.

 Patty loves her time spent in our enclosed outdoor areas and loves to chase any tennis balls that are thrown for her. She loves to chase after them but doesn’t quite understand why she should bring it back, so a second tennis ball may be needed to carry on with the game.

She is a very intelligent girl with lots of energy, so new owners will need to keep her mind active with some activity toys or scent games for some calming enrichment. Patty loves going out for long walks and would love to have active owners that are able to give her the exercise she needs. Like many terriers, Patty has a strong chase instinct when it comes to wildlife, therefore we would strongly advise that she be kept on lead during her walks.

In the right home with owners who have terrier experience, Patty will make a fun and super, loving companion.

 

Can you offer this lovely girl a loving and permanent new home?
