About  Meet Mr Happy!! and that smile says it all
Patch is a real social guy who will fit into any family fold. Despite his exuberance Patch does suffer from a form of arthritis in his shoulder so unfortunately he can not be your running partner or spend all playing as much he would like to, because he does not realise to much play will make him sore the next day. 
But on saying all of this he loves to go for walks and playing with other dogs but does need to have rest days.  Swimming would be great exercise for him.
