Needlework in which small pieces of cloth in different designs, colors, or textures are sewn together.
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.
Patchwork has a bit of a sensitive stomach, easily manageable via a stable diet. Otherwise he is healthy and ready for adoption.
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.
Patch is being a very good boy at MPR's shelter. He's a great guest and no trouble at all. He's well behaved and patient in his kennel. He doesn't react to other dogs walking in front of him and stays on top of his bunk bed like a little prince. He loves it up there lol!
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 cant be managed with proper training and structure. He still has a very puppyish personality. Lots of fun!

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 personalty to share a home with a compatible female, provided she agrees with his enthusiasm for fun and roughhousing. Interactions should be supervised and controlled.
Behavior with other animals:
Patchwork is enrolled in obedience training classes and is doing very well. He's smart and has fun learning tricks.
Patch keeps his kennel clean at the shelter so house training should not be an issue. He's still a young teenager so keeping him in a large wire crate when home alone is advised.
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.
