Quincy is a handsome Husky boy who was hit by a car and subsequently taken in as a stray by animal services. Thankfully his injuries were not severe (he suffered injuries to his chest and leg) and he recovered during his stay at animal services.
He is still a little sensitive (he will give you a low grumble) when handling his chest and neck area, so care should be taken. We expect this to resolve itself as time goes by and the injury heals. When he sees the leash and knows it's time to go out he will allow you to attach the leash without an issue.
Quincy has shown some level of food and toy guarding at the shelter. However, he responds well to hand feeding, which is a good technique to help break this behavior. This will require some work with his foster and likely need to continue with whoever adopts him.
While Quincy gets along well with other dogs, he does require a little time to adjust to know his place in the pack. Initially he will try to show some dominance (with males and females) but then will settle in without issue. He does enjoy the typical Husky rough house playing with his four-legged friends.
He is crate trained but hasn't yet been left out of the crate unattended in his foster home. Like most Huskies, Quincy enjoys sleeping near or on the bed with his humans, so does not need to be crated at bed time.
This boy is very lovable and enjoys attention. He greets his humans with a playful demeanor and will easily fit into a home that knows and understands the Husky breed. He will also showcase his vocals in times of excitement and when his humans come home. Quincy will sit for treats and takes them gently from your hand. With his food motivation, he should easily pick up other commands and may know others already.
Quincy is healthy, Heartworm negative, housebroken, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and microchipped. This boy is a just entering adulthood and seems eager to fit in to his new environment.
