How did you name your dog? I loved the show “Quincy” while I was a kid growing up. I always loved the name and thought it fit him.
Tell us the story of how you adopted your dog? I had just lost my first Basset Hound to cancer after his fourth birthday and I was in a very quiet house. My family found Quincy on PetFinder.com and when I met him I fell in love instantly. Quincy has a special heart-shaped brown spot on his side and we felt it symbolized that he was carrying my previous Basset’s heart with him. So, the rest is history. I cannot imagine my life without him and I treasure every day we have together. He is my best bud.
He loves going to daycare. He will howl for cookies. But his favorite thing ever? Going to Dunkin’ Donuts and getting a donut hole from the drive through on his way to daycare. He trembles with excitement until he gets his treat!
