Quinn now Pete – Adopted 6/2019

Pete loving life!

Quinn is such a good time! He is always happy and up for anything. I have never met a dog that is ok with a cone and allows me to put it back on. He’s open to anything and just excited about life! He will brighten your every day!

Foster Home Mom
Quinn was picked up by animal control so we know nothing about his past.  Our vets place him at about 18 months old.  He is very light in color and is a sweet, energetic boy.  He loves people of all sizes and ages, but may be too much for very young children, as he likes to jump up and “give hugs.”  His foster mom is working on helping Quinn improve his manners, but this will take some time, so only an individual or family with patience and a willingness to train a young pup will be considered for Quinn’s forever home.

When we first got Quinn, he seemed to be a bit “gimpy” in his hind end, as though he was sore.  We have had his hips x-rayed and they were pronounced “perfectly fine” by our vets, so perhaps he had been running loose for a long time or even encountered a slight injury during his time as a stray.  Our vet feels with a little time and exercise Quinn will be fine, and indeed, his foster mom reports he seems stronger every day.

Quinn’s foster mom says Quinn loves to play, whether with other dogs or on his own.  He’s not a good playmate for small dogs, as he tends to be a bit rough.  However, a dog his size that likes to romp would probably appreciate and enjoy his energy.  He has come a long way with his leash manners, as initially he had no idea what walking on a leash is all about.  He has seen cats in the neighborhood but has not had an “up close and personal” encounter with one, so his reliability with cats is as yet unknown.

Quinn is young and inexperienced with indoor life.  He needs to be closely monitored inside and cannot yet be trusted not to chew things or destroy toys.  All this is to be expected in a dog his age that has not lived inside before.  His foster mom has crated him from time to time, and he accepts the crate without much objection, but what he really needs is exercise, interaction with people, and TRAINING.  He will no doubt grow to be a wonderful dog, but not without some help from his people.

Quinn’s forever home will need:

  • a structural fence
  • someone home most of the day (and willing to train)
  • no small dogs
  • no very young children
