UPDATE ON QUINN 1/6/17** Quinn is up for adoption her foster shares how awesome she is <3
Quinn has been with us a little over a month now. She shares our home with 3 cats and a large male dog. Quinn has settled in beautifully right from the beginning! It is extremely obvious just looking at Quinn that she hasn't had the easiest start in life (Quinn has very obviously been used as a bait dog by some very horrible people!) but you would never know it! Quinn is the ultimate example of forgiveness and unending love. From the moment we met her she has craved receiving love and given love so freely! Quinn does seem to have some anxiety outside. We live on a very major street in Brooklyn and the subway runs just overhead. Quinn is very scared by this. We are sure in time she could start to adjust but we believe that a home away from the hustle and bustle of the city or even just away from any major streets would be the idle environment for Quinn. As for in the home there isn't much Quinn wouldn't fit perfectly along side. She gets along amazingly with cats and with our dog and is respectful of our dogs space when she can tell he wants it. Quinn loves to play and has the energy of a puppy while at the same time loooooves to cuddle and sleep next to her humans and her foster siblings. In our eyes Quinn is perfect in every way and we can't wait for her to find her lucky forever home. Please apply for Beautiful Quinn! http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/#j
What if we just posted Quinn’s picture without a story? What would you think looking at her? It’s pretty obvious looking at these photo’s something not good happened in her past. One snap of the camera, that picture gives you some idea, without to many facts, you just know whatever she endured was horrific, it wasn’t good. We won’t keep you wondering because we know what happened to her. Its very important to let you know some of the facts about her past, giving you a clear “picture" of what she went though. Quinn, is a lab/American Stafford terrier mix. She is a very sweet girl. At 2 years old weighing 48 pounds she is a Wiggly, happy tail going girl. Now for the not so good part . Quinn was used in dog fighting. We are sure you have heard the term “Bait Dog". Whoever they were, whoever put Quinn in this situation they seem to know just who to pick and use. The dogs who may not be very good in defending themselves, the friendlier of dogs. Quinn probably had no idea what she was in for. Thrown to the Professionally trained fighters, the champions, brainwashed by humans to do harm. Poor Quinn, used in dog fighting, a bait dog. She misses part of the side of her lip her teeth exposed, because of this. Quinn’s past was definitely not a good one. Her present, a much safer one now that she is under our care and her future we hope will be the happiest of times to come. Quinn presently is in long island where she is in boarding. She walks nicely when going out for walks and is truly a sweet girl. Quinn doesn’t seem very reactive to the other boarders. She will walk right past them. We are hoping to assess her getting a better feel for how she is with other dogs in a more relaxed setting. She doesn’t mind walking past Coop’s kennel or even our sweet Miracle’s kennel, her boarding roommates. Being in a situation where she was used in dog fighting does not necessarily mean she needs to be an only dog. We are pretty certain if she is excepting of another dog a submissive dog is going to be the best match for her. A meet and greet would be needed and will be the best situation if you have a friendly dog. If you have no pets, you will find everything your looking for in Quinn. A happy, loyal, kind well behaved girl. Quinn is great when meeting people. She is very friendly. It’s really something when you meet a dog who has been betrayed by humans to be so forgiving and excepting of others, never doubting a kind word or a gentle hand. We, as the human breed, find it very hard to get past anything that does us harm. Quinn is a wonderful example of being humble, kind and having a loving heart. She holds no grudges. She acts like a puppy, and is very playful. If you think your a good fit for Quinn, and would like to offer her a foster or forever home where she can have a normal loving life Please fill out an application http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/app
