Patrick Star UPDATE

Many of you remember my special rescue dog, Patrick. 

AKA Patrick Star.

When Patrick came to me last September, he looked like this (see Before Photo, left). Patrick was emaciated, weak, and extremely sick. 

But with lots of love and care, Patrick was able to heal here with me, at Lucky Dog Rescue. 

And today, he looks like THIS:

Yep... that's the SAME dog! 

Today, Patrick is insanely happy, healthy, and fun. He's super-loving and playful, with the sweetest kisses ever and the most adorable little personality.

Rope toys are serious business...
Patrick's new best friend is Wonder (see photo, right). Many of you probably remember her as well... from my many blog posts about my special Wonder-baby, and how Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) forced Wonder from her home and sent her back to me at Lucky Dog Rescue. 

Patrick and Wonder LOVE each other, and they can play together for hours. They love rope toys... each grabbing one end, and tugging on it with all their might... daring the other to let go, so they can "win" the toy. Or... they're content to just "wrestle" for the better part of the day. It's so much fun to watch them, and they bring my heart a crazy-amount of joy.


Now that he's all better, Patrick is ready to find his forever family! So, if you're looking to adopt an AMAZING, loving, fun, super-sweet boy who LOVES other dogs and all people, he may just be the perfect pup for you! Patrick is a 1 year old, male, fawn-colored, Pit Bull mix (about 45 lbs). He is neutered, up-to-date on all vaccinations, and heartworm negative. Patrick has the best personality; he's gentle with good manners, but also outgoing and playful. He's well-behaved, super-smart, and housebroken. He'd love to join a family with at least one other dog, because he's really social! [Patrick is available for adoption through Lucky Dog Rescue, Meridian, Mississippi.]

He loves YOU already!

  1. It's going to be ending of mine day, except before finish I am reading this wonderful paragraph to increase my knowledge.

    Take a look at my homepage :: get followers

  2. I tried to add this video to my blog of Patrick & Wonder playing together, but I couldn't get it to upload.

    It's only a couple of seconds, but it shows how they love to wrestle. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ru8_rWMamDI&list=UUKuux8IRmR72fgyTHYtiIGA

  3. He looks like a totally different dog! Great job nursing him back to his handsomeness! Love his smile!

  4. such a special story. it would be a wonderful happy ending if he and wonder could be placed together

  5. Yes that would be sooo wonderful! I know it's highly unlikely, for TWO of my Pit Bulls to be adopted TOGETHER... but it has happened before, with Wink & Pinky :)

    So maybe the same could be true for Patrick & Wonder!? Oh... my heart would just SOAR!!!!

    1. Ahh!! I love them both!! If only my husband would let us take 2 more in our house!!!

  6. Well than that should be the plan.. somebody out there please take them both; they are bonded and need each other. You would have two new best friends.

  7. Brought tears to my eyes! I wish I could take him home. (This breed isn't allowed in the area I live.)

  8. My goodness he looks fantastic. I saw him when Elly Gilmore first rescued him and brought him to you. He was so emaciated. Now he looks absolutely wonderful. What a beautiful baby. You have done wonders with him. Yes it would be brilliant if Patrick and Wonder were adopted together. He has been through so much and bonded with him it would be sad to separate them. Praying that their guardian angel sends a forever loving family to take them both. They would settle so much quicker if they had each other. Thankyou for everything you have done for him. He is beautiful. Thankyou from the UK xxcx

  9. Wow, Patrick is so lucky he found you and I am so happy to read he is just about to start his next journey in life. He has made such a great recovery and I am sure he is about to find the perfect family. Thanks so much for saving him!

  10. Wonder likes like my Madelyn. Both of my primary dogs were rescued from people raising fighting dogs, before they could be abused. I was on limited income, but went without some food and medication that wouldn't comprimise my health in the short time.

    I have seen too many bullies that have looked like this. I took in a big brindle bully I named Braveheart, who had been used as a bait dog. He would not allow a man on property or near me. He was sweet and gentle, and had the most incredible light that shined from his eyes, even when he was just skin and bones.

    Thank you for the work you do and taking in the bullies: it takes special people to fight the good fight, and make a place for a bully.

    God bless you!

  11. That's a great post - thanks for sharing.
