Patrick and Nick are both very sweet and wonderful dogs. Patrick was rescued a few weeks before Nick from an Amish puppy mill farm where he was a breeder but the farmer did not wish to keep him because he had other males more interested in breeding and Patrick always tried to get loose. He was shut down and very frightened when he arrived at his Finding Shelter foster home, he would not even make eye contact with the people in the home. Another dog in the home would run up to him and give him a nudge and encouraged Patrick to explore and eventually play and interact with the humans he has grown to love and trust.

By the time little Nick arrived from an Amish puppy mill where he became too big and was too shy to sell, Patrick had blossomed and had become more confident and ‘paid it forward’ as the frightened and shut down Nick needed some little nudges to begin to explore and play. In just a few, short weeks, Patrick and Nick were zooming around the yard like dogs who had completely forgotten the scary and terrible places they came from. Nick and Patrick have become the very best of friends. It would be simply fantastic if they could go to a home together!

Nick and Patrick are very bonded and play perfectly together and with other dogs in their foster home! The are sweet and very cuddly!

Nick has no known health issues! Patrick has a repaired cherry eye that will show/protrude occasionally.

Nick and Patrick are good with most dogs.

They haven’t been around any cats while with Finding Shelter, so we’re not yet sure how they’d react.

They are both good with older children.

A secure, physical fence is required for Nick and Patrick!

Nick and Patrick will require obedience training. They are very good boys and are very intelligent! Both Nick and Patrick are still working on their crate training but have very few, if any, accidents while loose in the house.*

*All dogs will go through a transition period after finding a new home and may need a “refresher course” in house-breaking.
