Meet Patsy!

Patsy is the sweetest, cutest little girl & charms everyone she meets! She has never met a stranger yet! Her little feet did not touch the ground during her recent check-up. All the vet-techs and even the veterinarian took turns holding her!

She is very, very busy all the time and gets along well with other dogs and even children. However, because of her small, delicate stature, children and very playful dogs must be monitored around her at all times. She prefers to be in her human's lap or playing with you and giving you kisses.

Be prepared for a little shadow - she will follow you everywhere! Patsy always wants to be where ever you are and loves to be the center of attention. She would not do well in a home where the human's are not home most of the day.

Patsy weighs just 7 lbs. and is 9 years old. She is small enough to fit in a shoulder bag and loves to go everywhere with you. Everyone that meets her thinks she is a puppy because of her small size and high activity level. She walks well on a leash, but gets cold outside, so will need a little sweater.

She is working on her potty training skills, but she is so busy all the time, she mostly forgets. She wears a doggy diaper during the day. Patsy sleeps in bed with her foster Mom and “holds it” all night, though. She does not like to be crated.

Patsy is spayed, microchipped, current on her vaccinations, heart worm negative and is on preventative. She is located in Morris, Illinois.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Judy.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
