Patches is a a gregarious girl who loves attention and to be patted. She is very alert and would be the kind of dog which will do well in a family with children. She seems to be good with very young kids and this makes her a good playmate. However, Patches is also good for watching the house because she's always running around the garden and inspecting every nook and cranny. The plus point is that Patches is not destructive and does not destroy things.
