Meet Quey he is the sweetest, gentlest guy. He is 2 1/2 years old.

Quey was rescued from a bad situation with several other hounds.

He has come a long way in the 8 weeks he has been with us. He has gained confidence. Put on weight and is very healthy with a good appetite.

Quey loves other dogs and has great dog manners. He would love a new home with a dog friend to run and play with. Quey has seen the cats in the house when they sit on the stairs but has not paid any attention to them.

Quey is very gentle and sweet he is unsure of new people but he will just lay and show you his belly if you approach. So if you are looking for a big cuddler Quey is not the man for you, at least not at the moment. Just recently he has decided when I let him out in the morning that's fuss time he will stand in the doorway and happily be petted and ask for more.

Quey had never been in a house until he came to the rescue and he will walk into the house now on leash or if I open the door at food time. Other than that he is still reluctant to come in voluntarily. However yesterday when a storm was brewing he had the sense to come in. Quey loves being outside and when the weather is good and I am home that's where he is relaxing just laying in the yard. As I said he is reluctant to come in the house once he is in he tends to go and lay down in his crate and that's where he stays. Quey caught on quickly to the house training he may still have the odd accident when I am out but goes overnight no problem.

Quey does not like raised voices or loud noises in the house or outside he will go and hide. He was obviously not socialised when he was younger and everything in life is new and scary to him. He still is not keen on the car but once in it he lays down quietly resigned. He is really frightened of being anywhere new on leash and I think he would be happy never to have a walk. If he has a good fenced yard and another dog to run with that would do him nicely. He would do well at a fenced dog park however he would need time to get used to it and feel comfortable there.

Quey is one smart boy and if I want him in the house at a certain time. I have to have a long line on him so I can get him in. He knows that if he is out in the small yard and I want him it generally means going in the house and he will hide. However when we walk on the property we have fully fenced acreage he has a wonderful time running and playing coming to me when I call him happy to be rewarded with his treat.

Quey is a hound and they need a secure yard as they tend to follow their noses. He has the hound bay but only when someone comes to the house or he is excited other than that he is a really quiet guy.

Quey will need a relaxed easy going quiet home. He is a work in progress could you be the one to carry on his journey teaching him the world is really not such a scary place after all.

Quey is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Animal Rescue. The adoption donation is $375. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. Please fill out our Adoption Form if you are interested.

About Grand River All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

As a non-profit animal rescue group our focus is:

To adopt dogs, cats and other companion animals into suitable homes.

To ensure that all dogs and cats placed by our rescue are spayed and neutered to ensure that we are not contributing to the pet overpopulation problem.

To promote responsible and healthy pet care, including humane training techniques and healthy diets.
to rescue animals from over-crowded shelters and the streets.

Our members are understanding and caring people who are pet owners and caregivers. They understand the care and attention that pets require but also how fulfilling (if occasionally challenging) a life with pets can be. We're not here just for the animals, but for their owners as well!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are all located in foster homes and an application must be approved in order to meet one of our pets.

Our Adoption Process...

Grand River All Breed Rescue's adoption process involves an adoption application, reference checks, and discussion about the potential adoptive home, including a home visit. We follow this process as we do have a responsibility to ensure that we place each pet in a home that is suitable and committed to caring for the pet for the rest of its' life.

We match our rescues to their new homes, and filling out an adoption application, or proceeding with our adoption process does not guarantee the acceptance of an adoption application. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant for any reason, at our discretion.

Please note that once we begin an application, we hope to have it completed within a couple days, based upon availability, particularly of your references. We are just as excited to find our pets their forever home as you are to adopt!

All GRAB animal require an adoption donation. Our adoption donations help us to pay for the many costs associated with rescuing animals, including veterinary bills, food, litter and other pet supplies, and administrative costs. The majority of our animals are adopted out for less than what it cost us to rescue them, and we do not make money on our pets. All adoption donations go directly back into our account which allows us to continue rescuing animals.

Currently our adoption donation for dogs is $375 and for cats is $175. Rabbits are adopted out for $60 and are spayed or neutered. Please ask us about adoption fees for other small pets, including guinea pigs, degus, etc.

For dogs and cats, our adoption donation includes a veterinary exam, vaccines, deworming and flea treatment (if needed), spay or neuter and microchip.
