This is the most extrodinary dog you will ever see! As near as I can figure out, he is a light fawn brindle Akita mix. It is as if he was painted a pretty cream and then splattered black with a paint brush!
Looking as his coloring and his facial structure points to Akita. What else he is mixed with? Well, we simply don’t know!
Quinn is sweet as can be. He is great with the dogs he lives with and wonderful with his foster family. He enjoys daily walks and his foster dad says Quinn walks well on a leash.
Quinn was picked up as a stray and taken to a local animal shelter. He was thin. From what we can tell he was living the streets for awhile. Why do we think that? Well, living in a garage with a dog bed seemed quite the luxury to him. Trying to get food out of a bag also seemed a way of life. He was clueless about going into the house, about going up and down steps and especially the steps to the basement. Don’t worry. He is now sleeping in the house on a comfy bed and eating out of his dog bowl.
Quinn is very hand shy. If you lift your hand he ducks as if he is expecting it to land hard on his body. Yet, he is not aggressive at all. He is sweet as can be. His foster dad says they have been using soft voices so as not to scare him and it’s working. As Quinn adjusts they will turn up the volume. Meanwhile, the other dogs of the house are enjoying getting away with just a bit more till mom or dad gets to them! :
Quinn is housetrained and behaves very well in the home. He is learning to be in a crate too.
Quinn is going to make someone a fine companion. He is just a great dog.
Quinn would do best with a person or couple or a family with older teen age children who have the time to continue working with Quinn. Sometimes he simply needs time to adjust to new things- like steps.
Right now his ribs show, but Quinn is expected to put on quite a bit of weight. He will be a nice dog when he has his weight up to par.
Quinn is available for adoption. If you are interested, please fill out an application and email it to us as an attachment.
