Update on Patrick the Dog

Just a quick update.
4/15/2011-Patrick Meets Julie Benz, Makes More Progress!

Patrick just loves his treats! He is tipping the scales at 33 pounds and we are overjoyed at the progress he is making. Due to his poor nutrition, he has demodectic mange. At the beginning of next week, Patrick is scheduled for an ultra sound and efforts will be made to remove the foreign body in his stomach. While under anesthesia, he will be neutered. He still tires easily and remains weak in his rear quarters. He will probably be visited this weekend by Sue Davis, Licensed Physical Therapist to help in this regard.

Last week, he was visited by Julie Benz, an actress best known for her role as Rita Bennett on "DEXTER" for which she won the 2006 Satellite Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series. She currently stars in the series, "NO ORDINARY FAMILY". Julie is remembered for roles as Darla on "BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER" and "ANGEL". Julie was in New York on business and wanted to meet Patrick. She traveled to meet this famous fellow and then took some pictures for her Twitter fans. She was kind enough to autograph some of our various t-shirts so that they can be auctioned at a later date.

A Little Pet Vet, LLC from Flemington, N J offered a huge donation for Patrick -- Yums All Natural Pet Treats. The first bag arrived a few days ago and the main ingredient is human grade rice bran which they said should be comforting to his digestive system. For more information on this product, please visit A Little Pet Vet.

Patrick is touching everyone's heart. Patrick's Rescue Fund is set up to accept donations for the many "Patricks" that come through our doors.

  1. Thats so awesome he looks so good! Julie Benz is incredibly sweet to take the time out to actually visit with him. Thats a beautiful picture of them. My thoughts and prayers are with Patrick that he may have a wonderful future!

  2. Patrick how courageous you are! All participants are the heroes too. What a great job you are doing. I have to laugh though~seeing some photo's I think Patrick in a good way is eating this up as a celebrity. He is so adorable and of a loving nature. Thank you all for your humanitarian efforts.
