    Quincy 6's Story . . .
    Original:  “Quincy came to MAESSR with a ‘ball fetish’; he wants to play ball non-stop.  He carries the ball around in his mouth begging for his folks to throw it.”

    Quincy was relinquished by his Pennsylvania owners because he was experiencing separation anxiety and anxiety during storms and when riding in cars.  Since his owners’ lives have changed and they are now traveling a great deal, they asked MAESSR for some help.  Quincy’s foster mom has not seen any of these negative behaviors. He pants in the car, but not anymore than the resident Springer does.  He barked once at thunder and has shown no signs of separation anxiety when his foster parents leave.
    This love is housetrained and goes to the door when he wants to go out.  He is not crate trained, but he and the resident Springer have the whole house to themselves when the foster parents leave with no issues.  Quincy initially slept on his bed downstairs as had been his habit.  But after several days, he started joining his foster family in the bedroom and now sleeps in his bed on the floor near them and seems quite content.
    While he gets along well with his canine foster brother, Quincy can be aggressive at meal times, so the two are fed in different rooms.  He is very interested in the cat; he doesn’t chase, but participates in staring contests with his feline friend.
    Mr. Handsome has very good manners in the house.  He does not get on the furniture or the bed nor does he get into the trash or chew anything but his own toys. He does occasionally counter-surf, but is easily corrected.  His foster parents are working on his habit of jumping on them. He follows commands of “sit,” “stay,” and “heel.”  He walks next to his people on the leash and does not pull.   He also walks with the resident Springer with no problem, lets others pet him and is not aggressive with other dogs on the walk
    Quincy came to MAESSR with a "ball fetish;" he wants to play ball non-stop.  He carries the ball around in his mouth begging for his folks to throw it.  They let him have the ball when outside, but not for the whole time.  He will let them take the ball and put it away.  He then finds something else to do.  He and his Springer foster brother dog chase the squirrels and rabbits in the yard and play with one another.
    MAESSR’s new young man went to work with his foster mom at the Adult Day Care Center.  There, he encountered a 10 year old girl whom he adored and with whom he played fetch for over an hour.  He was also very gentle with the senior citizens attending the program.  Quincy had a positive groomer appointment, and his foster family feels his demeanor is such that he will be fine with the vet also.
    Quincy will soon be ready for his forever family.  Will it be yours?
