Little Quincy is RADAR’s first Schipperke mix. This is a Belgian breed that was originally used as watchdogs on boats, which accounts for the name pronunciation: “Skipper-kee.” Six-year-old Quincy might also have some Chihuahua in his mix. He arrived as a stray on October 1st at the Vance County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina. While Quincy had a great personality, he also had his share of problems: his walking was a little off balance, he had a few patches of thin hair, and he was heartworm positive.
On October 16th, Ruff House Rescue in New York asked for RADAR’s help with Quincy. If we could assist with his heartworm treatment, they would take him. We agreed and Quincy was safe! There were some medical delays in getting his treatment done, but after finally recovering from an upper respiratory infection, he received his heartworm treatments on February 26th and March 27th.
The folks at Ruff House Rescue told us this about Quincy: “This little guy is beyond adorable. He is a little doll! He definitely has some neurological issues and he doesn’t hear too well. He tilts his head all the time when he wants your attention. He loves all dogs, and cats too. He is a funny little dog who is currently in foster with one of our very special volunteers.” Click here to view more photos of Quincy.
RADAR paid all $228 of Quincy’s heartworm treatment costs.
