found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
Update: Quincy is now up to 14 lbs 6 oz! He doesn't look starved any more, just a little underweight now. We're shooting for 17-18 lbs as a good weight for him.
What an awesome dog! Quincy is a senior papillon/poodle mix aged probably around 7-9 years old (best guess as we have no prior history on him). This poor guy has been through a lot, but you'd never know it from his personality! He's the sweetest, most gentle little dog we've ever met. He loves spending his days napping on your bed or following you from room to room and TV time at night is where he really likes to cuddle up to his humans. He fell asleep in his foster mom's arms with his head on her arm while she was laying on the couch...just like a little baby. What a cuddlebug!
The shelter told us he was a stray who was never reclaimed. He must have been a stray for quite a while, because when we got him he was so skinny he looked half starved to death. He was 11 lbs upon intake and his weight is now up to almost 15 lbs. We estimate he should be closer to 16-18 lbs when he's fully filled out.
He is pretty much housebroken if taken out on a schedule and is not at all destructive. We haven't heard him bark yet (update: he's found his bark but rarely uses it), and he will moan at us when he wants us to do something (check out his video). So far he's trained his foster mom to let him out on command, cover him with a blanket on comand, and remove his coat on command. Smart boy! He's really quite a charmer. You can't help but fall in love with him. He is one of the easiest dogs we've ever fostered.
Quincy is looking for a laid back forever home. He'd make an excellent companion for someone who loves cuddly dogs but doesn't want a high energy/high maintenance dog. Great fit for first time adopters who are a little unsure of their dog-managing skills. As far as kids go, we think he probably wouldn't mind them, but honestly, younger kids might find him boring. So he's recommended for families with children aged 12 and up. He really enjoys spending time hanging out with the teenage boy in his foster home.
He doesn't seem to be shedding much. We can't guarantee he's a no-shed dog, but we'll go as far as saying he's a low shedder.
He's had a dental and is already neutered and up to date on his shots. The shelter even bathed him for us and dewormed him and treated him with Frontline, so this boy's vetting is all up to date. Please submit an application if you'd like to meet him!
Honestly, we don't know why he's still here. He's a great dog!
