Patrick – Adopted

Patrick is a young boy, maybe just over a year old.  We think he might be a Basenji x Italian Greyhound.  He is sweet, affectionate, and likes children too.  He has been with us since November.  He went into foster care, however, he did not get a chance to learn how to be a well balanced dog there.  He has returned to the rescue facility, and is doing pretty good.  He gets along with all the dogs here, and likes to play with them, but still has issues when on leash with dogs outside of his pack.  He comes when called, and is still learning his basic commands.  Patrick should be in a no cat household (unless your cat is like ours – almost like a dog).


Patrick does still get defensive when he meets new dogs on leash.  He will bark at them and it is hard to get his attention off them to be able to give him some positive reinforcement.  Patrick is super smart, and is a fast learner.  He is very willing to please, makes great eye contact, and just loves people.  He needs a home that is prepared to deal with his issues and continue to teach him how to be well balanced in the doggie community, and give him a good balance of training, consistency, and love.


Patrick has been neutered, tattooed, vaccinated, dewormed and flea treated. His adoption fee is $395. Please email us for an adoption application at, home visits are also required.

    We would like to know more about Patrick. Does he suffer from separation anxiety? Does he travel well in a vehicle? Is he playful with people as well as other dogs?
    Thank you.

    No he doesn’t have separation anxiety. It took some time to train him how to sit in the passenger seat in the vehicle (all of 2 trips) now he chills out next to me in the car. No problem. He loves tummy rubs and is very playful with his humans and other dogs. He is very affectionate and loves hugs.
