John Quincy is a special senior dog who’s had a challenging past as a puppy mill breeder dog and this gentleman is ready for a fresh start. The patience, understanding, and love you have to offer him, will be rewarded with a loyal and grateful companion. He may need a bit of extra guidance, but with gained trust, John Quincy has the potential to become a loving and well-adjusted member of your family.

John Quincy is an incredibly sweet and well-behaved pup. He's good when left alone and doesn't require a crate. He's respectful of your space and enjoys a peaceful environment. While he's not fully potty trained, he's making progress, and with your guidance and patience, he’ll have it down in no time. Routine and consistency is key! John Quincy walks nicely on a leash but would much rather be indoors since the world seems so much larger than he is, it makes everything else seem a bit intimidating. Gentle encouragement and positive reinforcement will help him overcome his fears.

John Quincy rarely barks and won’t chew on things that aren't his. He does well in the car, so you can take him on adventures with you. John Quincy’s timid and kind when meeting other dogs, but his reaction to children and cats is uncertain. Supervised, gradual introductions are essential to ensure everyone's safety and comfort.
