Patton has been adopted! 01-01-2005

Female about 0 old.

Patton came to us from a high kill shelter where he was overlooked time and again because of his severely emaciated condition. A kind
volunteer appealed to us to help him - we have just been able to place him in a
foster home where he can receive good food, sleep on a warm bed and get
lots of attention.

Patton is so thin that the vertebrae in his spine can be counted all
the way to the end of his tail. He has lost all his pockets of fat -
even those above his eyesockets. He has lost a substantial amount of hair
and his face is scarred. Where was this beautiful dog that he was such
a victim of neglect?

Even in his weakened state, Patton is a sweet soulful fellow who seeks
the company of people. He is gentle with other dogs as well.

As we get to know more about Patton, we will update his bio. In
addition, look for new photos of this boy as he blooms in his foster home.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
