Patch was a beautiful collie cross who came to us as a pup, because her owners thought she was disobedient and unruly. She turned out to have a hearing problem and after being fostered with other dogs she began to calm down. Unfortunately she was not adopted and after a year we were worried about her future. We decided to feature her as our Valentine in a local magazine. There she sat in a heart of roses looking appealing. Within a few days she had an email from Barney asking if he could be her Valentine. They were like two peas in a pod! Meetings followed and it was love at first sight. Patch now has a lovely new home and the company of a hearing dog who looks after her.
