The family home wasn’t very big, and the dog had already grown much larger than they expected. So the family had asked themselves, was it fair to keep him? But this thought was no doubt furthest from Patch’s human’s mind when she lay in the bath and felt the dog’s teeth close on her arm. Because suddenly she realized why – and she had to get out of the house quickly.
It’s fair to say, the Davis family didn’t plan to bring a dog into their lives; it was very much an impulse decision. However, when they heard about Patch, they couldn’t resist offering him a home with them in Vancouver, Washington. That’s because Patch didn’t have the most successful start to family life.
Indeed, poor Patch had a home before, but for unspecified reasons, his previous owner couldn’t keep him. When Richard and Nola Davis heard about the pup, then, they decided to take him in. In fact, they thought he would make a great gift for their two children.
