The Pet Spotlight for the Pacific County Humane Society is Quintin, a one year old husky/terrier mix who is looking for a home to call his own! This boy is super affectionate and loves to snuggle. He gets along well with everyone and other animals. Quintin still has some puppy energy going on and loves to play, but he can also be mellow and has a really sweet demeanor! He really enjoys going for walks and exploring. He is also a great running partner and quickly gets into the pace and rhythm of the run. His favorite outdoor activities also include finding sticks, catching balls and meeting new friends (did we say already how friendly this guy is?!)
Quintin is very smart and learns quickly. He is food motivated, and enjoys his Kong filled with peanut butter. His current foster Lex says; ‘we have training treats wherever we are and in our pockets at all times!’ He knows the commands sit, shake, down, stay and is practicing heel. His foster also shares that, ‘Quintin is crate trained, and while he whimpers a little when you first leave the room, he soon stops and relaxes. If you remain in the same room, he is totally relaxed in his crate.
Quintin is not a barker, but he is a vigorous chewer! He needs toys for aggressive chewers, like his Kong and antler horns. This is something that needs to be monitored, but he is easily redirected if you catch him beginning to chew something he shouldn’t. When leaving him home alone it is recommended he is crated – so he doesn’t chew anything up! Quintin would do well in a home with another dog. In his current foster placement he lives with an older, male dog. Quintin was really high energy at first but now he’s more gentle, just giving kisses and they are super compatible. Rodney, the other dog, has become more social and affectionate since Quintin arrived.
This boy is fully house trained. He sleeps through the night. He does really well in the car. He also loves to be brushed. If Quintin sounds like the boy for you, please go to beachpets.com and follow links to adopt. He is available through South Pacific County Humane Society in Long Beach WA.
