#12214 Quincy

Large-size, Male, Adult Hound,
Energy Level 3

Energy Level 3 - Enjoys walks, mental stimulation, and some playtime.

Hi, My name is Quincy! I'm guessed to be a 3 year old Hound mix and weigh about 61 lbs. I've just arrived in Rockville, MD at my foster's and I'm settling in nicely. I was kind of high energy upon arrival, as everything looked and smelled new to me. But now I'm more relaxed and feeling more chill.
About me: I'm an affectionate guy, peppy, but not rambunctious.
I like people and they sure like me! I'm docile when given attention, and I sure do like it.
Now, last night my foster put water and soap all over me. I can't say I liked that and I surely don't know why he did that to me. We were getting along so well up til then. But he got past that little moment of crazy and we're friends again.
How am I on the leash, you ask? Well, those things are new to me. I want to go here, and there, and over there, but the leash doesn't let me. I would say I'm frustrated but no, I'm too happy and giddy just to be walking around with someone minding me. Wowee, the world is good!
Of course what would REALLY make me happy is to find my permanent home. I've got so much to offer. In return I just want your support and affection.
I do have a little medical thing to get through (see below) but shortly after that I'll be ready to start my new life! Give me a look!

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

Quincy is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. Quincy is currently being fostered in Rockville, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
