Hi, my name is Patches.
Hi Humans, I’m Patches. Let me start by saying I love you.? Seriously- humans are my favorite species! I am a border collie mix, approx. 10 years old. Don’t let my age fool you– I am energized by human affection and I have a persisting playful spirit. I’m a big girl but I can be swift if you throw a toy my way. My tug-of-war ability can win me international championships.? I’m also the coziest couch potato you could ever ask for-- this is my baseline state. I soak up all human attention, but a good belly rub is my favorite form of affection. The technique I use to get humans to rub my belly has been perfected over many years. I roll onto my back with my legs sticking straight up into the air and I stay very still... This tricks the humans into believing that the only way to ‘bring me back to life’ is to scratch my belly. Works like a charm! ? I am a great passenger in the car– I’ll hop right in and sit in the passenger's seat facing forward, just like the humans do. (It's also fine with me if you prefer me in the back-- I am just overjoyed to be going on a ride with my person). Having babies at an older age led to some weight gain and a thyroid diagnosis that makes it difficult to lose weight. That just means I need continued support stabilizing my diet, and I need my thyroid medication to be kept on track. Other than that, I’m in good health and tough as an ox! All my kids are grown up and thriving in their forever homes-- and now I am looking for my own loving adult human(s) to settle down with. My daddy, who was my best friend, passed away. I wish for another special human to bond with one-on-one and help mend my broken heart. I kindly request no other pets or kids-- but I promise to be a sweet and faithful companion for you. ???
