Background Info:

 

Patchwork was found as a stray and never claimed. We dont think he had a terrible life prior to rescue but might not have had very responsible owners. His friendly face and great disposition quickly charmed the staff at the city pound who put a plea out for him to join MPR. We agreed upon meeting him that he was a great candidate for our program. 

Adoption Fee: $150
Breed:  Pit Bull
Sex:  Male
Age:  1-3 yrs
Weight:  50-60 lbs
Color:  White & Black

Health Condition:

Patchwork has a bit of a sensitive stomach, easily manageable via a stable diet. Otherwise he is healthy and ready for adoption. 

 

Physical Description:  

CUTE! Mostly white with some dark and brindle patches. His friendly expression matches his outgoing personalty. He's very "Pete-the-pup" like. Average size for the breed; might still have a tiny little bit of growing up to do. 

 

Living Situation:  

Patchwork is fostered in a home with two adulrs and a 3 yo female Pit Bull. 

Foster parents ar working on crate training. He is quiet in a crate and doesn't mess with his bedding, but he managed to break-free a couple of times. Foster mom reinforced the crate with zip ties and he seems to be doing well since then.,

 

Patch likes to play with toys in the yard and inside. Patchwork and the resident dog go on walks daily together, sometimes will even go along for a run. He is doing awesome with this new routine. 

 

Patchwork does well in the car and likes to go to the local hardware store. He is a very happy dog, with lots of energy, but also a great cuddle buddy.


Ideal living situation for patchwork would be a house with a fenced in yard. Patchwork requires regular exercise as well. Patchwork would probably do well with older children.

 

Personality:   

What a charming little guy! Very fun-loving, playful and outgoing. He is still quite juvenile but very responsive. This happy-go-lucky boy is full of potential as family companion. 

Patch's level of energy is right where it should be for a young Terrier his age. Lively but not too hyper. He loves to have a good time but is responsive to leadership. Like all young pities his age, he is a little mouthy at times but nothing that can't be managed with proper training and structure. He still has a very puppyish personality. Lots of fun! 

A note from foster mom: "Patchwork is very happy. He has calmed down a lot since leaving the shelter and doesn’t have as much bottled up energy. Patchwork is responsive to direction when he is wound up and loves to show off his tricks."

Behavior with people: 

Very friendly, comfortable, eager to make friends and ready to have fun. Patch is your typical happy Pit Bull, outgoing and always in a good mood. He loves people and everyone is a friend. He's a great breed representative. 

 

Behavior with children:  

We haven't seen him act around children but he's giving us no reason to believe he wouldn't make an wonderful companion in a home with older children. His enthusiastic greeting might be a little overwhelming to toddlers. 

 

Behavior with other dogs:  

We were told he did well in a play group during his short stay at the city pound. Please keep in mind that those play groups are managed and monitored by a group of experienced dog trainers and not always an indication of how a dog will behaved in a different environment. That said, Patch seems to have the right personality to share a home with a compatible female, provided she agrees with his enthusiasm for fun and roughhousing. Interactions should be supervised and controlled. 

He is currently in the process of being introduced to his foster sister. We will update his bio once we have more information. 

 

Behavior with other animals:  

Unknown but he doesn’t seem to pay attention to squirrels and birds in the yard or on walks.

Training: 

Patchwork was enrolled in obedience training classes and did very well. He's smart and has fun learning tricks.

 

Patch kept his kennel clean at the shelter and foster mom didn't report any issues with housebreaking since he's been with them.  He's still a young teenager so keeping him in a large wire crate when home alone is advised. 

Best Attribute:   

About as happy-go-lucky, fun-loving and friendly as they come! Energetic but also sweet and cuddly. A great combination of traits and a ton of potential.
