Patches had it very rough before coming to us so he is what we refer to as 'special needs'. He needs a patient and kind female with no kids and no submissive dogs (large dogs are even better). Patches is afraid of everyone and everything at first but he is very afraid of men. When he gets more comfortable in his environment he will attack (not just nip) submissive or weaker dogs. He is also working on potty training. He does well with crate training and belly bands. He takes no meds and is heartworm negative. He is very sweet to his lady and wants nothing more than to be as close to her as possible. He would be best with a single older lady.
