Meet Patty Paone Pet Person of the Week

by seacoast_ashley 20. March 2015 02:49

Patty Paone is one “failure” that Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage is happy to have on our team. Patty is what is known in the rescue world as a, “foster failure.” Believe it or not, she has fostered successfully (8-10 times). Patty recently moved from New York where she was active in a dog sanctuary. Obviously, Patty is an extremely patient and giving person. She currently has a pack of FIVE dogs, all rescues. I’m pretty sure that she has enough material to write a book, but this is Phoebe’s story.

My Phoebe was rescued from a Puppy Mill in Ohio in March of 2013.  By the time she got to us in August 2013, she had been in 3 foster homes and a short stay at the sanctuary.  She was so shut down. She was getting bounced around trying different situations to help her.  She wouldn’t go out or come back in on her own. She had to be carried out and then chased down to get her back in.  We would often bring our dogs to the sanctuary when we were going up for the day.  In comes my overly social boy (Mack) who got her out of her shell one day while visiting the sanctuary. He just wanted her to play and wouldn’t give up until she did.

After 2 weeks, we decide to see how she would do in our house.  We have a very social pack. Hoping less chaos and a smaller pack would help her, we took her to ‘foster’.  

I used to just sit outside and give attention to all the other dogs, letting her come to me when she was ready.  

We thought about rehoming her when she came out of her shell, but we think it is our pack that keeps her going, after all she has been through. We cannot imagine causing her to shut back down.
