Quincy - Adoption Pending!'s Story...
Hi! My name is Quincy, but my foster dad likes to call me "Jethro" because at heart, I'm a country dog. I was found wandering in the woods in Barren County, KY, but I don't like to talk about what happened before that. My foster parents live on the Ohio River and I love to run, play and just love life! I am a handsome boy, tall and weighing about 50 lbs. I love to romp with my foster sister, Roxie, and we like to take long walks and go on hikes. My foster mom won't let me get too excited or play too hard, because I'm being treated for heartworm. I try to be a good boy, but sometimes I forget and I play too hard. I'm about 2 years old, so I have lots of energy! I sleep in the crate at night with Roxie, she helps me calm down and rest, but I really don't like to go in away from my people. I love my people so much, I like to be with them wherever they go. I love pets, belly rubs, and treats! I can't seem to get enough love and attention, sometimes I even try to play with the cats, but they don't appreciate me very much because they make funny noises and even spit at me! But its fun when they run, because then I can chase them. I point out birds, moles, and the cats, but my foster parents don't hunt, so I'm not sure if I was trained to hunt before.

From Quincy Jethro's foster mom: Quincy was untrained when he came to us: very rambunctious, had bad separation anxiety, and was not crate trained. He has come a long way-he now sleeps through the night in the crate with minimal fuss, has learned sit, come and lie down, and we are still working on down and stop! He has tons of energy and is a great companion, already very loyal and protective, and NO aggressive behaviors toward humans. He is being treated for heartworm, so cannot get too excited, so that is the daily challenge. He really needs a home that is fenced in because he loves to run and play with abandon! He is now socialized to cats, still likes to chase and run after them, but has stopped seeing them as prey and has not been aggressive with them. He still needs to be neutered after his other treatment has been completed, so he wears a belly wrap in the house to remind him not to mark. It has been very successful. He is great with the kids (13 and 12), but may be too large and energetic for very small children. He is very lovable and will make someone a great companion! He follows us everywhere, but when we're out of sight...he gets into mischief. He would really like to have a companion who is home a lot and work on obedience training.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Quincy - Adoption Pending!, a Louisville Brittany dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Brittany for sale in Louisville, or seeking a Brittany dog from a breeder in Louisville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Louisville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Louisville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Brittany breeders who help with Brittany rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Louisville paves the way for another one to be saved.
