About Patch Adams

Lab mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male Hi, my name is PATCH ADAMS ID#A4393522. I am a neutered male, white and black Lab Mix. The shelter staff think I am about 5 years old, and I have been at the shelter since March 17, 2020. I need to be the only dog in the home for now, but potential to coexist w other dog later. Sadly, I'm set for euthanasia next week. This is my last chance! I was adopted once and returned to shelter. Prior to me being adopted I was at the shelter for 5 months!! This had an impact on me mentally. So when I went to my new home I displayed some undesirable behaviors (growling at the exterminator, nipping at children...etc) probably due to the fact that I was still a mess and very stressed from being locked in a kennel for so long prior. It is horribly sad when 'us' dogs mentally break down and it is very important to allow us time to unwind (decompress) and become normal again..... I need training...Can someone work with me and please save my life?...This is my last chance!.... I cannot be returned again!...Can you all help me get into the right home to save my life?.... I am such a lover!! But i would be best with no young children for now (14+). I'm friendly and I do like attention and love to be petted. I will lean into you and love my back scratched! I really have a good heart but I was not allowed enough time to decompress and the home I was in was to much for me after just getting out of the stressful shelter. I was fine with dogs when I first came in in March of 2020, but the stress has taken it's toll, and my last dog eval, I did not do well. At this point I need Training, structure, and patience to help me get back to normal. I also disliked the shelter so much I tried to escape and jump the fence a few times. So initially, I should be in a house with a yard and a block wall.
