2nd Chance Dog Rescue’s Dog of the Month for September came to rescue via another 2nd Chance Dog amazing field rescue…Diana Czarnecki (2nd Chance Dog Rescue’s founder) and his foster mom, Lindsey Westcott, of This Little Doggie Stayed Home, teamed up to save Quincy from the hot streets of the East Valley this past June. In his foster’s own loving words, here is Quincy’s story:
“Quincy was spotted living on a vacant lot at the corner of Alma School and the San Tan Freeway…in dangerous traffic, had no access to food, water or shelter and the Valley was in the middle of an extreme heat advisory. After a week of attempting to gain his trust, it was clear that this sweetheart wasn’t going to make it easy to be caught. The odds of his survival weren’t great, so we thought it best to humanely trap him. The trap was set at dusk and checked at dark… much to our surprise, a calm little dog was inside. Turns out the little guy just couldn’t say no to cheeseburgers. We shone a flashlight at this scared pup and noticed what we thought to be bleeding from his mouth, so we drove straight to the emergency vet to get checked over and have him scanned for a chip. We learned two things at that visit: what we thought was blood, was simply just the tip of his little tongue hanging out, which it does daily and that he was in fact microchipped! Unfortunately, Quincy’s microchip led us to owners who explained that he was no longer wanted. We think that abandoning him was the best thing his former people could have done for him, because they gave him the chance to find a real forever home.
Quincy was absolutely exhausted and broken the first 24 hours in his foster home, but once he got some rest and met his foster siblings…he came to life! He absolutely adores other dogs and hopefully will live in a home where he can have a four-legged friend (or friends). He is incredibly quick learning the ropes of how the whole home thing works and is crate and potty trained. Quincy walks great on leash, waits patiently for his meals (but still inhales them like he’s on the streets), knows all basic commands and runs daily on the treadmill. Quincy still gets a little fearful of new or challenging things at times, so he would love a home with parents who will not feel sorry for him, but who will be his strength and guide him through life allowing him to be the dog he was meant to be!
Quincy is an absolute doll who loves to learn and lives to please. Quincy hasn’t let his past break his spirit, so we aren’t either! He’s not been around children, but sudden movements of little ones may be a little too stressful for him at this point, so a home with older children or no children would be best. He also hasn’t met any kitties, so it is unknown how he would fare with a feline friend. Quincy has the most grateful spirit and is working hard to build his confidence to find his forever family. He is such a deserving and sweet soul.”
