'Hey! Are you my new best friend? See, I'm really needing a best friend because it seems like I'm just coming up a little short here at the shelter... My name is Patton and I'm a 1 year old Pit Bull mix looking to land a spot in your family portrait. I am a very high energy boy and would thrive in a home where my family is active and able to keep up with me. I will need a lot of exercise to be happy. Though it is not a requirement, SVASC staff feels that I would greatly benefit from going to training classes after adoption. I am a very smart boy and love to learn! I just need a little work on honing those skills. I am very playful and do enjoy a good game of tug or fetch! If you have a backyard, I would love to learn the best way to play soccer with ya. I'm already house-trained, so we won't have to worry about that when I get home; we can get straight to the fun stuff, like morning jogs and afternoon snuggles. I am good with kids, but am a large dog and have lots of energy, so I may jump on someone younger and knock them over. I am best suited for a home without any young children, please. If you're interested in bringing me home, please bring the whole family, so that I can make buddies with everyone! My adoption fee is WAIVED to an approved adopter. I'm currently waiting for a home with a foster, so I'm not at SVASC. If you would like more information on me or would like to learn how to meet me, please give SVASC a call at (540) 943-5142 or email Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org'
