Quincy was surrendered to a dog shelter. He found his way into SNAFU Rescue when the shelter contacted us. His surrendering family could no longer care for his needs and wanted him to find a loving home to live the rest of years being spoiled and cherished.
Quincy is a genuinely sweet, calm, lazy, quiet pup that loves nothing more than to snooze the day away on any soft surface. This snuggle bug will find a comfy blanket, rug or pet bed to lounge on. Quincy can be shy at first and may take a bit to warm up but once he finds that trust he will want all of your love! He is nervous in new environments and seeks comfort in those he trusts. He is such a unique french bulldog; he is both deaf and blind which requires extra guidance and supervision in the home. Quincy can navigate the home just fine. He moves around very slowly so when he bumps into something it doesn’t phase him! He is usually looking for his plush bed to take a long snooze and he does know exactly where they are in his foster home. Quincy isn’t interested in toys rather he would love to spend his down time chewing on his favorite bones. After an intense chewing session, you guessed it, he is grabbing a much desired nap! Quincy prefers to snuggle members of his foster family and loves nothing more than to be held and rocked like a baby. He truly is such a sweetheart! Quincy captivates you with his sweet personality and will hypnotize you with his kind eyes. Be ready for a sweet boy that enjoys treats so be prepared to never say no to him!! Quincy lives with several furry foster siblings and isn’t bothered at all by them. He will even share his beloved bed with his foster sister. Yes, Quincy is your frenchie couch potato but don’t be fooled by his age as he is young at heart! Quincy finds great joy in exploring the backyard and when the sun is shining you will find this cutie basking in the rays. Quincy likes every person he meets once he is provided ample time to warm up to them. Due to his calm disposition we feel Quincy would do fine in a home with children of all ages and calm, easy-going dogs. As with all of our dogs, slow introductions to both dogs and children is a must and supervision around them at all times is required to make sure both he and they are kept safe.
Quincy is still working on potty training. He is making wonderful progress and his foster family reports his accidents are becoming few and far between and would say he is 95% trained! Because Quincy is blind, his adoptive family will need to be patient and willing to keep him on a strict, regular and consistent schedule for his continued training. Quincy is completely crate trained when crated in his home. Quincy is 12 years old and there are nights he cannot hold his potty all night and will occasionally have a potty accident in his crate. It is NOT often. When he is crated in new places Quincy will cry for a bit until it becomes familiar and then he settles. He does sleep quietly in his crate when his foster family is away but would prefer a family that can snuggle him at night.
Medically, Quincy is in good health. He has chronic superficial keratitis in his eyes that does not require medication or cause him pain but causes the complete blindness. He had a severe ear infection in the past that went untreated that caused his deafness. Although he does not currently have an ear infection, his ears should be monitored to avoid any future issues. He has a deep tail pocket that requires daily cleaning to avoid infection in addition to daily face wrinkle cleanings. Quincy has been neutered, heartworm tested, microchipped, had dental and is up-to-date on vaccinations/dewormings and has been given the okay to adopt by our veterinarian.
Quincy would do well in almost any type of home but a home with a completely fenced yard is best given that he is blind, can wander off with no sense of where he is and also because he is deaf and cannot hear you calling him back. Due to his age, a home with little to no stairs (or blocking off access to stairs) is best for Quincy as he needs to be guided when using the stairs. He is fully leashed trained using a harness and can manage a few stairs at a time. Quincy would love to spend his retirement years having a family that offers him patience, many snuggles, bones, treats and enjoys to spend time at home. He loves to lounge around with his people and requests a few snuggles throughout the day. Quincy would not be a good dog to take to the office. He would much prefer to snooze the day away in the comfort of his crate and soft blanket than to be put in an unfamiliar place. Quincy would need his adoptive family to arrange a mid-day potty break for him. He just is so very sweet! If you are looking for a companion that craves a comfy lifestyle and a pup you can spoil rotten, Q is your boy! He just wants a family to call home where he can live out his retirement being spoiled, cherished and loved.
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Quincy, please submit an adoption application for him today!!
NOTE: Please note that it will likely be at *least* a 3-4 week minimum before you hear back from us after submitting an adoption application. We typically accept for new applications for a period of 7 days or until 20 applications have been received for any newly available dog. After that time period, the applications are sent on to the foster family for review and that usually takes from at *least* a few days to a week to sort through the applications, etc. :-) Most of our dogs receive several applications so this process does take some time, especially on dogs who are more popular for one reason or another. We do require phone interviews to be conducted between the foster family and potential adopters, vet reference checks and a home visit to be conducted for all potential adopters, if they are selected as the top choice applicant, which will also take time to complete. That being said, we do always let our applicants know if they are chosen or not. :-)
IF you happen to not be chosen, please don't feel discouraged as, again, we usually get several applications for each dog, and sometimes it can be very difficult to choose just one adopter. In those cases, we usually offer to keep the applications for adoption on file for any future dogs that come into our rescue. :-)
ALL adopters are required to come and pick up their adopted dogs in person from the dog's foster home (we do not ship any of our dogs). Please have road/driving transport plans in place to pick up an adopted dog before you apply! While we are not against adopters flying a foster dog in cabin on a commercial flight, please keep in mind that many are not good candidates for flying due to size and/or being a brachycephalic/short nosed breed.
If an adopter can not keep one of our grads, for any reason at all, at ANY point in time, they *must* be willing and able to return their adopted dog to his/her original foster home, despite distance and any costs that would be required to do so.
