QUINN – 7865 aka A1123317
Safe - 10-1-2017 Brooklyn
SAFE 10/1/17 **PRIORITY PLACEMENT NEEDED! STILL HERE, NOW OVER 1 MONTH! Quinn is such a sweetheart it’s crazy that he hasn’t been adopted! He can be a bit shy initially and is usually found at the back of his kennel, taking in the sights. That being said, after spending an incredibly short amount of time with him, he started head-butting and purring up a storm! He definitely seems to prefer the petting session comes to him rather than by him seeking it out, but with a few butt-scratches and kind words Quinn will be your best friend.
QUINN lost his home to allergies. He is 7 years old and is hoping for a new non-allergic home this time!

Lying in back of kennel, face tensed and tail wrapped around body. He retreats through his portal twice before I manage to touch him. He begins to warm up when touched and leans in gently for petting. I go get some treats and he perks up immediately, comes forward to gobble up treats. Head-butts my hand and leans in for petting. Begins to purr. Conflicted – warms up once approached and interacted with for a few minutes. Warms up even quicker if you have treats. Food motivated. Sweet boy, needs some extra socialization (nervous upon approach). Sprayed feliway.
Lying in back of kennel, ears forward and face tense. He retreats through his portal when I open the kennel door. I open the treat bag and he comes back forward, vocalizing with tail raised. Eats treats and gives me a head-butt. Continues to allow petting while leaning in and beginning to knead his paws. Nudges my hand for more petting. Very cute, this big guy loves treats. Did great today!
Lying in litterbox with a relaxed body. He stands up and comes forward as I open the kennel door, then retreats through his portal with his tail raised after I touch his head. He comes back forward a moment later and he allows petting along his head and body while leaning in. Rushes forward for treats. This guy is very food motivated. He eats his treats then nudges my hand for pets. Allows petting along his head and body while leaning in with tail raised. Makes eye contact with soft eyes. Relaxes with continued petting and begins to knead the kennel floor. Big handsome panther, he’s a bit timid initially but warms up with interaction. Doing well!
