Capture the Angels
Update: January 27
It’s been two weeks since I got him. He’s been doing really great in everything we’ve been working on. He now holds 8 hours in a small crate at night. I take him out every hour or two when he’s loose. When I can’t watch him, he stays in small pen with his toys and chews. He is not house trained yet but he is learning that going on the grass is the right thing. He is tough and confident and he started stalking! He loves to play tug with me and my dog. I have begun working on his manners a few days ago now that he is feeling all better. I will post a video later this week.

If someone ever tells you fostering puppies is easy…ask again. I’ve been fostering young pups back to back these days. Yes, puppies are cute and fun but they are a lot of work. And it’s a reminder for those who want to adopt a cute cuddly puppy that he also poops and pees every hour, not to mention they will try to chew everything. Every time a foster puppy gets adopted, I tell myself no more puppies. Then I somehow convince myself to get another…ha! I named him “Patch” (Patchy). He’s about 11 weeks old and was found as a stray in North Texas along with his litter mates. On day 9 (today) he stalked BC style. His brother Jackson, who will also be available for adoption soon, looks like a traditional tri Border Collie.
Patchy was quite vocal when I got him. It’s been 9 days since I got him and he finally stopped screaming when he’s left alone. I know it was very stressful being separated from his brother and he has not been feeling too well. He can now settle down in his crate after a few little whines. He’s currently on antibiotics. He will be available to go to his forever home later this week. He is playful, sweet, pretty confident, curious and affectionate. He loves to play tug with me and with my lab. I tested to see how long he’d hold onto a tail teaser toy. I had to stop after 2 minutes because he would not stop. He would be a good candidate for agility and flyball. He’s really good about going potty when he’s let out. I can now stand by the backdoor and let him out on his own. He crosses the concrete area, finds the first patch of grass to pee and comes back immediately. He usually holds 3-4 hours, but he is starting to hold longer and longer at night. To me, he’s mellow for a 11 weeks old puppy. After a short exercise, Patch can settle down on a bed with a piece of bone. He LOVES my dog’s orthopedic beds. His left eye patch looks like a heart from one angle. From left side, he looks like a panda bear. He is also a lap dog.
His brother Jackson. He will be available for adoption soon.
The perfect home for Patch would be;
