Today, because of her stress chewing, Patsy cannot have beds, blankets or toys in her kennel - which makes her stay at the shelter even lonelier.
But her anxiety doesn't match the sweet personality those who've met Patsy have come know. "If you want to lay in bed all day, she's perfectly fine laying in bed all day. She's not a bouncing-off-the-walls kind of dog,." Rene Backer, who fostered Patsy for nine months after she was returned by her adopter, tells The Dodo.
