Hi! My name is Patch and I'm a beautiful 9 month old female Lab Mix. I currently weight about 50lbs.
I have a shiny black coat and pretty face. I like playing with my stuffed toys and running around in the yard. Sometimes I just prefer laying under a tree while chewing my bone. My energy level may be just what you need for a running buddy! I'm affectionate, playful, and respectful. I don't jump up on people and try very hard to do what I'm told. I'm well behaved in my yard and house as long as I am supervised. I'm doing very well responding to verbal commands. I've learned how to use my underground electric fence as well as respecting the above ground fence. Everyday I'm getting better with house manners and respecting my doggy playmates. I play very well with my fostered buddy Bela, who you can find on this website! At my first adoption event I was very well behaved while meeting new people and dogs. I played very nicely with large dogs and a very small dog while supervised.

I hope to find my forever family soon. Could that be you?
This dog tested positive for Lyme before arriving to the rescue. Lymes is a very common type of bacteria that infects dogs and other species and is spread by ticks. Lymes is not contagious to humans or other pets. The only way to get this disease is to be bitten by a tick that carries it. The treatment is typically 21-30 days of antibiotics. This dog started treatment upon arriving to the rescue.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
