More about Patch (18560)

1 year Patch is best suited to live with children 16+

Our beautiful boy Patch is looking for a family who will shower him in love and affection for all the rest of his days. Patch arrived to the DSPCA from another rescue and is now ready for his second chance at happiness.

Patch is an incredibly sweet natured and gentle young boy who can be timid when he first meets new people, but once he warms up his darling personality absolutely radiates from him. Patch could potentially live with another dog, pending a meet. Lurchers are one of the most sweetest breeds and are always so gentle no matter how much they are suffering or how frightened they are. They are all legs and love. They are known to be couch potatoes and this is true but only after they have been exercised. Lurchers will happily do 2 walks a day and this should always include zoomie time where they can run off lead in a safe enclosed environment. They burn energy really quickly so after zoomies it's snuggle time with their humans on the couch. Be sure to have time for cuddle time because this is one of their specialities and they are great at it! Could this adorable boy be the one you have been looking for?
