1 Introducing Quinault!
2 He is a rather furry 15-lb. fellow who is likely a Rat Terrier-Chihuahua mix.
3 Quin is about 9 years old, and over those years he has developed the most wonderful house manners.
4 He is quiet, low-key, and very well behaved. He does not chew on things, try to get onto tables or counters, dig in the trash, door dash, or get upset when left alone.
5 He is reliably house trained and has never had an accident in his foster home.
6 Quin is an affectionate little guy who loves neck rubs and butt skritches. He was so sweet and flirty with the shelter workers that they let him stay in the office during the day and one of them tookk him home with her each night.
7 Quin certainly likes mealtime and treats, but a good pat is just about as rewarding for this little guy. He is patient while his dinner is being prepped but then he eats his food enthusiastically and appreciatively.
8 This easy-going, quiet guy doesn't mind being picked up, isn't bothered by unusual household or neighborhood noises, and greets strangers politely.
9 Sunbathing in the yard is something he enjoys. He also likes plush toys. And napping. Yup, napping is good.

11 For the most part, Quinault gets along fine with his foster brother. But he can be possessive over food (with other dogs, not with people) and his personal space, and if he thinks another dog is invading, he will growl to warn them off. If they don't retreat, Quin doesn't mind picking a fight. So he would probably do best as an only dog.
12 He likes plush squeaky toys but does not spend a great deal of time playing with them.
13 He walks very nicely on leash, not pulling or lagging.
14 He gets kind of tired after a quarter mile or so, and will look for a shady spot to take a rest.
15 Some regular gentle leash walking will do him good and help him build up some stamina.
16 Quinault is looking for a new family to love and honor. Could that be you?
