Meet Patriot

This is our new foster. What do you think he is?

He is 10 months old, and is about 30 lbs.

We have never fostered a dog this small, so it should be fun.

He came from a high kill shelter in the U.S. He had been adopted and returned because he got too big He has been in foster for a week and the lady said that he was too active and nasty with other dogs

He is an active little guy, but not nasty at all.

For those of you who do not know, Keesha is the GSD

What is his name Sylvie?

He sure is a handsome looking fella and his fur looks beautiful. I'm not one for identifying breeds but his floppy ears are too adorable.

His name is Patriot, but we have been calling him Buddy, the name Patriot just doesn't roll off the tongue.

He is the colour of our Briar (Golden) Don't have a clue what he is,I think a mixture of a few breeds.

His tail is very fluffy. The tail and the feathering on his back legs reminds me of a Golden, his ears remind me of collie, as I said I think we have quite a mixed bag going on in there. But he is so smalllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll.

Angeldogs he is so small to me because I am used to 80 lb GSD's but he only weighs 30 lbs. and his head is small. Cyrus's head is at least 3 times bigger

He really is a cutie. We are falling for him already.

Winston got to meet him today and I think she liked him. I don't think we will have him long, as someone will snap him up.

Yes I met sweet patriot today! Wow he is such a super good boy! I still cant tell what he really is. I can see how they say Collie but he certainly is a mix.

He was so well behaved. As Sylvie said he will go fast, because he is so good. He loved Sophie and she seemed smitten with him as well. Its a toss up though wether she is attracted to Cyrus more than Patriot!

Anyone looking for a pup would find a good pup in this one!!

I hope he is around long enough for him and Sophie to have a play date!

Well, you guys will have to arrange that play date quickly, then! (And don't forget to charge the cameras! )
