Oh no! Was so hoping Patch would pull thrpugh. What evil piece/s of scum to do this to a dcefenceless animal. And what a conttrast to those guys who risked their own lives to save several dogs from a fire at Manchester Dogs home? Carolyn1 Justice MUST be done: not seem to be done. The way I`m feeling now I feel like throwing the culprit`s over a cliff. The peoblen is with the Uk we are far too soft on crime. Remember Karma. I hope we can get justice for Patch. Nightie, night sweet Patch, sleep tight, and have fun at the bridge with your new pals now you are back to full health. RIP+ God Bless x A~~Candle ~~~burns for you sweet Patch (((HUGS))) XXX One day when the time is right, you will meet Patch at the bridge, an he will show you the way. Forever together. Now with the Angels surrounded by love

Please look down upon your family Patch, who really need your sttength at this extremely tragic time for them Tell them we will try, and get justice for sweet brave Patch. Sweety dreams cnerub x Last edited: 2020-09-22 17:29:37 by janiejewel1649

So sad ...poor Patch fought so hard although this should never have happened to a helpless dog. Hope culprits are found and brought to justice. Wishing you a happy and painfree life at rainbow bridge RIP Patch xxx
Happy hounds
Darling Patch. You were such a brave boy. Run free with sweet memories of all the love, care and support you received in your final days. Tears roll. This was a despicable act. After all your fear, suffering and pain, rest in peace beautiful boy. Sincere condolences to the family.
This is such sad news after his brave fight. Devastating for Patch's owners and everyone involved in his rescue and care. Brought tears to my eyes. You won't be forgotten Patch, rest in peace free from all pain.
Patch died this morning.may karma get whoever set his kennel alight. Rest easy Patch. Last edited: 2020-09-22 12:27:46 by Bo
The fund raiser stopped because of the amount of money raised thanks to overwhelming generosity of the general public, (over £11,000).
Bo. Thanks for uodate on Patch. Pleased he is doing so well. Late in posting due to computer breakdown
Was hoping to donate, but for some reason his donaton page has been disabled, and I don`t do fb. But am sending him gentle ((((HUGS))))) and kisses to an incredible brave dog. GET WELL SOOM Patch. We are all rooting for you. The person who inflicted this callous act of cruelty should be named, and shamed, and get a severe punishment. Will be prayimg for you handsome Patch. Paws and fingers xd.Last edited: 2020-09-21 21:17:55 by janiejewel1649
Today’s update
“ Hi everyone so sorry I haven't personally updated for a few days, it was my first day at college today so I've had some assignments that needed completing.
Patch is still fighting and holding his own, the vets are happy with how he is doing so far. He will be going under anaesthetic this afternoon for his dressing changed again, at which point the vet has asked a specialist Professor to have a look at his wounds in order to discuss his skin grafts, and they are discussing the possibility of stretching his skin to close the wound some. No more blood transfusions have been needed yet, but they will check his blood count again this afternoon.
Again I just want to thank you all, you are all being so wonderful and supportive it really does mean so much to myself and my family.
Thank you xx”
Today’s update Update 20/09
Patch has had blood transfusion and the vets have spent time consulting to ensure the medication he is receiving for his pain is right. All of the skin on his stomach has had to be removed and he is undergoing an operation today to remove some dead fat and to get the granulation ready for his skin grafts.
Patch did manage to get up himself and walked outside for a wee.
Today’s update (Saturday 19th Sept ) - 6 days after the horrendous cruelty inflicted.
“ Thank you once again for your continued support, which has allowed Patch the opportunity to receive the treatment he is.
Following surgery, he is having his bandages changed twice a day and whilst the vets are still happy with his condition, they are aware this could change at any time. They are currently discussing whether a blood transfusion is needed.
His care and treatment is being assessed daily and the original estimate for his recovery was £10-12k. You have all been so kind and generous and as a result of this, the GoFundMe will close shortly.

So glad that Patch has been found safe...what a traumatic experience for him though...wishing him well in his recovery...hopefully the perpetrator/s are found and suitably punished - an awful experience for both him & you...wishing you the very best x
So pleased he's been found. Hopefully his kennel days are gone after this dreadful attack x
Louise. I don`t think there are more evil people in the world than good. For example look at all the
lovely people on Doglost who help people whose dogs are missing and give up their time to search for their dogs, even though their own dogs may be missing too. I think the evil people are the minority; not the good.
What a piece of scum to do this to an innocent aniumal. Presunme police aware as this is a crime? Sending Patch absent healing for his injuries, and gentle ((((HUGS)))) GET WELL SOON handsome Patch. Hope the piece of scum who hurt Patch is caught, and dealt with severly,, and not just a slap on the wrist. Keep us posted xLast edited: 2020-09-15 21:46:30 by janiejewel1649

Absolutely made up for Wendy and Trey that Patch had been found after the callus attack on his Kennel that could easily resulted in him being killed, I truly hope that the perpetrator is caught and brought to justice.
Welcome home Patch ❤️.
Hope you feel better very soon Patch.
From Patch's Facebook group - he has been found and at the vets - Trey Brindle - Some burns damage to his eye and two cuts on his back end but he walked in the vets himself xx
From Mandy - He was found in a ditch and has burns and bad eye.
