Quincy is a very photogenic 1 year-old Lab mix male who may have a little Pointer, Boxer, or Hound in his family tree. Since he came to us from a county dog shelter, we don’t have any history on him but we can tell you that he has been the perfect gentleman in his foster home. Quincy is a very polite boy who can be a little timid in new situations. Once he’s had some reassurance though, he becomes very focused and attached to his handler. Someone has worked with Quincy in the past as he knows some commands including sit, down (he slides down to the ground which is very cute), and speak. Quincy is very food-motivated so would probably be very easy to train. He has gotten along well with other dogs that he’s met and tends to be on the chill side with them. A super-rowdy canine might overwhelm his sensibilities so he would probably prefer a calm, mature canine buddy if there was another dog in his new home. Quincy has kept his crate spotless in his foster home. He might be housetrained also but we can’t promise that he won’t have accidents while adjusting to his new home. Quincy walks fairly well on a leash for a young dog and, with some daily practice in his new home, will soon be walking like a pro. Quincy weighs about 50 pounds but is thin and needs to gain 5-10 pounds to be at his ideal weight. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
