Furry Fridays: Patchy at KC Pet Project

Say hello to Patchy, a three-legged love bug available at KC Pet Project.

Meet Patchy! He’s a 2-and-a-half-year-old, 48-pound Pointer/Hound mix. Patchy is a charming tripod who is still getting the hang of only walking on three legs; however, that doesn’t hold him back from playing fetch and walking well on a leash. He’s very playful and loves attention. He’s a big fan of belly rubs, snuggling, and giving kisses. Patchy is treat motivated, which will help in teaching him new commands and tricks once he’s fully used to having three legs. Staff and volunteers say he keeps his kennel clean and has done well with older children. If you have a doggie friend in your life already, as always recommended, please bring them along so that staff can set up a dog to dog intro to make sure it’s a good fit.

Come meet Patchy at KC Pet Project’s Petco Adoption Center at 11620 W. 95th Street and adopt him for $40 as part of its Home for the Holidays special, which runs through December 27. Check out all of the shelter’s amazing adoptable animals online at
