Patrick is a 4 year old Aussie mix. He’s a BIG boy – around 70lbs now (but a good weight for him would be maybe 60-65 lbs). He’s a big sweet goofball! He loves people and gets really excited to see his foster parents, greeting them with tons of full body wiggles, tail wagging, and sometimes even a play bow and bark or two in happiness. He likes to run around in the yard with his doggie foster siblings. He gets along with other dogs, but gets a little amped up when first greeting dogs and needs time to settle and get his excitement under control. He has been incredibly respectful of the bossy female in his foster home (who’s half his size), proving he’s smart and has good manners with other dogs, despite his exuberance. Patrick has medium-level energy for an Aussie, and loves to play fetch in the yard and go for walks and hikes. Patrick is a lovebug! He is great with kids, adores snuggling with his people, and is crate and house trained.

Patrick is UTD on vaccines, neutered, microchipped, and fostered in Durham, NC.
