Okay, so it's not Gasparilla. But Patty's got purpose, she's dressed like a pirate to steal your heart. Originally named "Frozen," she held out for a cheerful name and a caring foster family. Patty's a year and a half old, appropriately energetic, and very well-behaved in public --especially for a parrothead. She's not a big fan of felines but prefers hiking, toys, the beach, or splashing in kiddie pools. Patty is a 40-pound mix of Staffordshire and Jack Russell Terriers that's conquered a school year's worth of adversity for a chance at a new life with you. Need a walking partner? Meet Patty in person from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday (May 26) at the Valrico Pet Supplies Plus, 1937 State Road 60. This dog-friendly dollbaby comes fully spayed, vaccinated, housebroken, amd microchipped from NewLifeDogRescue.org. Find them on Facebook @NewLifeRescue.
