Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Meet Patrona! She is a 7-year-old mixed breed dog who came to the animal shelter when her elderly owner passed away. She currently weighs about 67 pounds. The family member who brought her to us said that she is very lively and loving and that his grandfather used to claim she talks when she barks because it sounds like words! What dog-lover wouldn't enjoy an intelligent canine conversation? Patrona just had her teeth cleaned here and is all gussied up and ready to join a new family. If you have another dog at home, please bring her/him to bring them in for a meet 'n greet with this lovely girl.

Patrona's adoption fee is $60. She is spayed and microchipped, has age-appropriate vaccinations and is eligible for 30 days of complimentary pet insurance. A licensing/microchip fee may apply.
