Patty is a big girl who adores people, long walks, and couch cuddles!


The basics

  • My name is Patty
  • On my last birthday, I was 5
  • I am a girl
  • I've been homeless since January 31, 2024

The good stuff

  • My best trick is sit. But that's boring. I'm told I give the best pooch smooches, too. Much more fun!
  • Me in three words: chunky charmer, social butterfly, couch potato. Math is obviously not my forte.
  • How I feel about other critters: I really don't care for the other dogs at the shelter, but I've been doing well on parallel walks with some of the other puppers. Truly I'd love to be your only dog, and at a svelte 100 pounds I'm kinda all the dog you need!
  • My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is to squeak the squeaky toys for hours! It's like music to my adorably floppy ears.
  • This is what I dream about when I dream about my perfect person or family: a solo pet household where I'm queen of the castle. I love meeting new people and light up a room wherever I go! I'm always the belle of the ball. Squeaky toys are my thing - I could play for hours! - but I'm equally happy taking gentle strolls outdoors. And at the end of the day I love nothing more than some couch cuddles with the humans! Did I mention? Besides being gorgeous, my adoption fee is sponsored by the Fredericksburg Nationals as a Most Valuable Pet. That means I'm an MVP!!
