6 year old • Male • 60 lbs
Quill is red, with white on his throat, chest, and his front toes. One of his ears points directly up while the other is flops down, and he has beautiful amber eyes. Quill is a beefy boy and very, very muscular.
Quill is definitely a lover! He loves being lavished with attention. A velcro boy, he wants to be with his people as much as possible—and chooses one person especially to stay near. He is crate trained; and although he doesn't love the crate, he goes in with no issues. I would say small kids under 5 might be a no go, only because he is strong and loving and may push over a little one trying to lick or be petted. Quill is a very good and wants to please. Also very food motivated and very smart, he is very easy to train. Quill is skittish with loud noises (especially fireworks or thunder) and wants to be close to a person when he is frightened but it is not excessive.
Quill has done fine living in a home with both a male and female dog previously; and in his current foster home Quill has a female fur sibling he loves to play with. He has shown some leash reactivity in certain stressful situations. Quill would love being an only dog getting all the attention; but he can share a home with the right playmate who is similar in size to play with.
Quill is healthy, and up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm negative, and neutered.
Quill was found wandering as a stray.
