Paddy the Dog needs a home

Best friends are the go-to friends  when life is in an upswing or in a downfall. They are invaluable to have in one's life and when you meet them there is an instant connection.  Paddy is just that type of friend and he won't let you down. Come and meet Paddy.  He is a cream colored shih tau mix, about 10 to 11 years old, and weighs approximately 15 pounds.  

There is a ton of life left in this little guy.  Paddy feels age is a matter of spirit and boy does he have plenty of spirit.  He is an upbeat and happy boy that enjoys life to the fullest. He isn't even slowed down with having a mild "cherry" eye because it isn't a bother to him in the slightest.  Paddy is overjoyed to spend time and play with his canine buddies, children and he even enjoys the company of cats.  He has a low energy level so he will play in short spurts and rest and relax the rest of the time before starting all over again. 


On Paddy's favorite things list is to go for walks.  He cherishes going outside and spending time with his human.  He is top dog with his leash walking manners so he is a pleasure  to walk.  Paddy loves the opportunity to be social and he can't think of a better way to socialize than to be out and about on walks.  


Paddy is not only leash trained but he is also house and crate trained.  Paddy is ready to demonstrate his skills in his new home.  Although it is important to remember that there can be an accident or two while adjusting to a new home environment. 


Paddy is a lover of life. He is s big fan of his toys, enjoys his dog bed and cuddling on the sofa. Paddy is a boy the will take front and center stage in your life. With so much love to give, Paddy is sure to win your heart.
