Rescue Story

Quinie came into GEARS’ care as a transfer from Canadian Animal Task Force and, after time spent in a loving foster home, is now ready to find her furever home!

My Bio

My ears just perked up… did I hear you say you needed a furry friend?!?

Hi, I’m Quinie and I love to play! I am your typical fun-loving puppy, full of energy and ALWAYS ready to play. I love going for walks both on and off leash and I love playing with all dogs that I meet. I roll over and show them my tummy to make sure they know that I am no threat😊.

I live with my foster doggy brother and we play all of the time. Sometimes I like to play a little bit more than he wants to so if you have a doggy, I hope they like to play a lot! I also think living on my own and having my fam jam all to myself could be kind of cool. But please make sure I still get to see and play with other doggos! Like maybe some play dates and/or doggy park time?

At night time I’ll sleep in my foster parents’ room on my dog bed on the floor. I am crate trained when they leave the house and I’m happy to nap my time away in the crate or chew on a Kong. Because I’m still learning some of my puppy manners, I need to be reminded not to jump up on people when I meet them. I’m just so excited!

I’m still working on the house training… I like to just sit by the door, but I don’t usually make a noise when I want to go out, so you have to watch me. When I am ready to come back inside, though, I will let out a little bork. I could play in the backyard for hours and hours. I just love it especially since my foster home backs onto a path so I get to make friends with everybody walking by. I am quite vocal when I am in need of something, whether that be food or water or just want your love and attention.

I have a couple foster kiddos in the house too! They like to take me for walks or just have some snuggles, so I’d say I’m good with kids but probably older than 6 because I still jump up. I wouldn’t want smaller kids to be afraid me!

I am a very affectionate girl and love to give face kisses and snuggles 🤗. If I sound like the perfect fit for you and your family, please apply today. I can’t wait to find my furever home.

Love, Quinie
