About Quin

Adoption Fee: $200
Bluetick Coonhound
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female

Quin - 1 1/2 year old blue tick coonhound 50 lbs Great with dogs/people/kids No cats; not potty trained. Adoption fee $200.00 Sweet-tempered & softhearted Quinlan (Quin for short) charms everyone she meets; when you look into her big brown eyes, your heart will melt. Her silken ears & velvety mouth make it impossible not to caress her (which she loves); She is fabulous with other dogs and easily fits into a pack of all sizes/breeds/sexes. She doesn't have to play constantly; she easily entertains herself by hunting down squirrels & moles. She is the consummate digger; and she avidly hollows out trenches in her search for a varmint in the ground; she would do well to have a sandbox with special treats placed in it in her new home so that she had a special area where she could investigate her holes easily without damaging a lawn. She's not a big barker; we've only heard her howl a few times when she got particularly agitated about a squirrel. Other than that, she's pretty quiet and subdued. Quin is well-mannered & affectionate when meeting both dogs and people; she's definitely amenable with children but because she is food oriented (as are most hounds), we wouldn't put her in a home with toddlers. Our peaceful girl did surprise when we learned that she is absolutely not recommended with cats; there was a kitten at the vet's office and she was way too anxious to get to it for us to be comfortable putting her in a home with a feline. Although you wouldn't know it from her amicable & mellow disposition, Quin has a sad history. She was raised by an Amish 'puppy miller' as a breeder; although she's only 1-1 1/2 years old, she's already had one or two litters of puppies. Apparently she got loose one day when she was in heat; the Amish owner thought she might have mixed breed puppies so he was going to shoot her. Luckily a local rescuer heard of her plight and was able to convince the man to relinquish her. And then, when the rescuer went to get her, the owner punched Quin in the face when she balked at being on a leash (she'd never had one on before). Her right eye became severely infected but luckily was saved and is now healthy; it does have a permanent sagging portion on the lower lid but it doesn't affect her sight and our vet has said surgery is not needed. We are so grateful to the Good Samaritan who saved her and brought her to us. She initially was scared of being indoors and had to be coaxed inside; but now she's learned that it's warm & dry & comfy so she enters eagerly now. Quin has been a blessing and a joy; wouldn't you like to give this precious girl a great home? If you are interested in adopting, the first step is to fill out an adoption application.
