About Patton

Patton was placed with Bluebonnet by a rescue that was closing down.

History

The rescue who placed Patton with Bluebonnet did not give us his history, so we don’t know anything about him prior to his arrival at Bluebonnet.

Health / Lameness

Patton has no known health or lameness problems.

Evaluation and Training

We don’t know if Patton was not handled much in his life or was handled poorly/abused, but he is very nervous with new people and places and he has a lot of fear issues.  He’s currently with a trainer who is working through his issues.  His trainer has made good progress on the ground.  Unfortunately, Patton has a lot of fear and trauma in his past, and he’s going to need a handler who either prefers to keep him as a pet or who can help him work through his past trauma and abuse.
