About Me: Hi! I'm Quimby! You may remember me from before. I was adopted early last year but the family who adopted me decided I wasn't a fit for them so they returned me to hart. Don't get me wrong, I love my hart family but I'd really like to find a home that I can call my own, permanently. I'm not a bad dog, I just get scared and bored sometimes. I would love to have a doggy brother or sister in my new home to keep me company and help me learn that the world isn't so scary. I love to play so a younger, active dog would be perfect for me! I also really like my crate as it's my safe place. I like to feel cozy but not trapped, you know what I mean?  

I don't want to seem like I'm asking too much but I'm not very excited to go out and meet people in public or have a bunch of strangers coming and going into my home. I guess I'm a bit of an introvert you could say. To be honest, strangers are scary (don't tell anyone I said that). Once I get to know them though, watch out 'cause I'll make them my new best friends! Do you think I might fit in with your family?

Health Notes:  This young man originally came to hart as a wee pup. He was adopted out but unfortunately his adoptive parents were not a good long-term match for him, so he came back to the hart family. Quimby is healthy and ready for adoption, he is up to date with DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is neutered and microchipped. 

Behavior Notes: Quimby has come a very long way since he came back into our care. He is a lot more confident, and while he is still fearful it is taking him less time to figure out that new people are okay. He needs to be allowed to initiate all human interactions. He is good in his crate. He is great with other dogs and highly recommended that he lives with at least 1 dog, as he relies on other dogs to figure out if humans are safe or not. He is great on walks, and approaches people on walks better than when people are in his space. He is extremely fearful of water hoses though, his foster home found this out very recently, by filling up a pool in her backyard and he went into hiding in the house. He does fear bark, if it's a person he really doesn't feel comfortable with. But, with ignoring him, he'll come around. Quimby just needs lots of patience and time. Once he trusts you, he's your best friend and wants to play with you.

Think you have found your furever friend?
