WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Washington Animal Rescue League has a new Pet of the Week.

If you looked up "Disney dog" or "Winn Dixie" in the dictionary, chances are you'd see a picture of Patrick.

This Schnauzer/terrier mix is the quintessential scruffy canine silver screen his case, a retired star. At 10 years old, Patrick no longer qualifies for any "Mighty Dog" action hero roles, but he has more than enough energy to make a great sidekick for some lucky human.

Patrick is sweet, gentle, healthy and strong, and he's looking for an adult home (or one with older children) where he can enjoy good food, good walks...and all the adoration and attention he deserves. Could that be yours?
