When I visited the dogs trust in Shrewsbury Patch was not in the main area as he had only just come in. Saw a picture of him, and realised he was the dog for me. Took him for a walk around the field and if it was possible would have taken him home the same day. Adopted him and finally took him home a week later (August 2013). He settled in well and I'm very pleased to have his company. I get a lovely welcome when I come home from work. We both enjoy our walks whatever the weather. He is part of the family and I wouldn't be without him.
