WASHINGTON - If you looked up "Disney dog" in the dictionary, chances are you'd see a picture of Patrick.
This Schnauzer/terrier mix is the quintessential scruffy canine silver screen star -- or in his case, a retired star.
At 10 years old, Patrick has retired from the "Mighty Dog" action hero life. He still has plenty of energy and is looking for a loving adult home where he can enjoy good food, good walks and all the adoration and attention he deserves.
Could that be your home?
WTOP Living is partnering with the Washington Animal Rescue League to feature a Pet of the Week available for adoption. For more information about Patrick, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-726-2556 ext. 503.
