Patches and Parker
Bull Terrier & Labrador Retriever Mix
LOVE has a special meaning this holiday season for our bonded mother and son — Meet Patches and Parker! Patches and Parker didn't have a good start to life. Our fearless leader, Willene, was picking up a litter of puppies from the animal shelter when she stumbled upon an elderly couple with a dog and her little puppy still nursing talking to the animal shelter director. The couple explained that the dog belonged to their neighbor, who had moved away, but left the dog tied to a tree in the yard, without food, water or shelter. It was January, almost zero degrees out, so this kind couple thought that it would be more humane to bring this momma and baby into a high kill shelter rather than have them starve and freeze to death. As the director explained, there was no room for these pups, they would have to be put down. Willene just couldn't let that happen. She looked at this beautiful mother and her nursing baby and knew that she couldn't leave them behind. Despite having a tough start, we are very optimistic that they will find their forever home, with a family that will never abandon them. Patches is a 2 year old bulldog mix. Parker, her baby boy, is a 9 month mix of bulldog and extreme cuteness. This duo would make the perfect addition to a loving home. Patches is a very attentive momma and won’t leave Patches’ side. Patches and Parker are house trained and have EXCELLENT manners in the home. They keep each other busy and tucker each other out! They will also cuddle each other when you have to go out of the house to do boring human things! Playful and sweet- they are looking for a final, forever family that will love them as much as they love each other. Who doesn’t love, love? Life is better, together, especially with these two! Patches and Parker will be at Petco, 10 Chapel View Blvd, Cranston, RI on January 25th from 11-4 and January 26th from 11-2.
