~ Bri and Patch ~
Although he had a rough start to life, Patch, a Border Collie x Staffy, with the help of his human, Bri, has flourished into a beautiful and loving dog. They have both formed a very strong bond and are now inseparable.
At only a few weeks old, Patch’s mother was in an accident. He and his 10 other siblings were all then taken to the SPCA. At 4-months-old, after he was taken into the care of the SPCA, Bri found him listed on Trade Me. She fell in love with him and welcomed him into her family.
Having Patch in her life has helped Bri immensely. She has found more purpose in life and more reasons to go outside and be active. Patch loves to go for walks and run around. He has helped Bri a lot, both mentally and physically. For Patch, Bri has helped him to have a better life. He is loved and is able to play, enjoy food and more.
One of Patch’s favourite things is going for walks. If Bri simply says the word ‘walk’, Patch becomes very excited! He’s definitely a character, but it’s because of this that no matter what, he can always bring a smile to someone’s face.
Not only has Patch helped bring more happiness to Bri’s life, but he is loved by the community. Bri’s father enjoys walking Patch, and their community enjoy saying hello to him when out and about. He’s certainly a bit of a local celebrity there!
The bond between Bri and Patch is obvious. From the way they look at one another, can understand each other and simply just how much love they have is truly something special.
