Featured Dog for Adoption




Boxer & Pit Bull Mix – Senior – Male – Large – Brindle
Good in a home with other dogs, cats and children
Sweet Patrick was surrendered to Almost Home Rescue after his previous owner started getting too sick to care for him. Patrick is 10 years old, and was with his previous owners for 9 of those years. He’s a bit nervous around new people, but his foster mom is working on that. We think he’d do best in a quiet home, maybe with one other older dog, he seems to like to have a companion. We think In saying that, he can be protective over his toys, as he’s been an only dog for most of his life. He does not bite, but can be reluctant to share.

Patrick was in a bad car accident a few years ago, so is a bit nervous riding in the car. After quite a bit of work with his foster mom, he is doing better at this, but can still be a bit nervous with loud noises.

Patrick has lived with cats in the past, so will do okay in a home with kitties. He loves to play and go for walks! He is pretty strong, and can get distracted by scents, but does great with a gentle harness. He also loves baths, but doesn’t like to swim. Patrick’s adoption fee is $200.
