Patch came into our care after his mother Megan and he and his 7 siblings were dumped in a box in a field in February. They were just 6 weeks old and sadly one pup died. They were in horrific condition, emaciated and terrified. Megan and the 6 other pups have found loving homes and we would now like to find a home for Patch. His mother is a Lab x collie and we think the father was a boxer or staffie x although we can't be sure. Patch is a happy, bouncy boy. He is such a sweetheart and he loves to be with people and he loves playing with other dogs. He is also ok with cats. He was the runt of the litter and his growth was a little stunted but he is a medium sized, handsome boy. Sadly Patch was born with hip dysplasia in both hips and this will probably cause problems for him as his life progresses. However, at the moment he loves his walks and loves to play with the other dogs and we don't know how soon he will have problems; it could be several years. If and when he might need veterinary treatment for his hips, the KWWSPCA will cover all the veterinary costs involved in his care. We do want him to have as happy and as normal a life as possible therefore we would really like to get him into a home where he will get the love and attention he deserves. Patch is neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated. If you could offer Patch a home, please contact 087 1279835 for further information.
