Network alert!! Patch IDA#1235135 still waiting at the WLA Shelter!
Patch is a sweet, gentle dog who has outstayed his welcome at the WLA Animal Shelter but as long as he is still alive THERE IS HOPE. $500 towards an approved rescue has been pledged. Additional pledges are needed and most welcome. Mirja at MBishop355@aol.com will track pledges.
Please contact Mirja if you have questions.
Patch is a 5 yr. old, neutered, white Pit Bull type dog who was brought to the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter on July 27, 2011 as a stray. He is a medium sized dog but he is clearly underweight weighing in at 56 lbs. when he first came to the shelter.
He is a calm, easy going dog who is good on leash. He comes when called and knows the sit command. He is easy to collar and walks through the kennel without any difficulty. He is loves his treats and has a very gentle mouth. He is an affectionate dog but sometimes seems lost in the shelter environment and becomes distracted almost as if remembering where he used to be when he had a home. His ears are cropped close to the head so you have to wonder what kind of a home it was that Patch had and whether it was worthy of his love.
Patch has been at the shelter for a long time so his days are clearly numbered. He is a mild mannered, very easy to manage dog who would make a great companion for just about anyone. He has so much love to give some lucky person. He is a favorite of one of the volunteers who spends as much time with him as he can and who has nothing but positive comments to make about his behavior.
Please help Patch find his forever home. This wonderful boy does not deserve to die in the shelter. Please help Patch!
