MVHS Pet of Week: Senior dog looks for mellow place to retire

Patches, an 8-year-old Australian Shepherd-Pointer mix, is looking for a place to spend his golden years.

Patches sideShelter staff volunteers say a home where young children aren’t poking Patches or pulling his tail would be best. He’s a neutered male who is house-trained and does well with other dogs.

Looking for some company while you’re working in the garage, yard or garden? Patches would be a great companion. He’s available for adoption now.

Interested in meeting Patches?

The shelter is open seven days a week. Hours are: Noon to 4 p.m. Saturday-Monday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, and 2 p.m.-6 p.m Fridays, or by appointment (794-0944). The cost is $85 for dogs, $95 for puppies, and that includes spay/neuter and vaccination. The shelter, supported by 50 volunteers, promotes adoptions through its Facebook and its Web site,
