For those of you who may be interested or don't know the story, on Oct 1st 2004, "Q" was brought into the clinic for a deworming. The owner had to go to work, so Q was left at the office and was to be picked up that afternoon.
The owner never showed up Attempts to contact the owner have been unsuccessful and Q is now deemed "abandoned" (we think the owner may have gone to jail as Q's been coming to the clinic since he was tiny and the owner paid to have him treated for Parvo several months ago. This is not a dog the owner would have just dumped)
Q is a tan and white, unaltered male and is extremely friendly. When he first came to us, he jumped all over people and pulled hard when on leash. Since his time with us, he's learned not to jump on people and leashwork is getting MUCH better! Q is still learning basic commands as I am the only one that is really "working" with him. He has NO food aggression, however he is Dog-aggressive. Q really needs to be in an only dog home. Not sure how he would do with cats, but I wouldn't recommend it. With children, Q would probably do well although I would recommend older children as he is a big boy and kinda clumbsy sometimes (could easily knock over a small child)
In a home, potential owner needs good knowlege of bully breeds and their stubbornness. He craves love and attention and is MORE than happy for the tiniest amount of affection and praise. I think in the right hands, Q is VERY trainable as he is a SMART dog. But the owner would have to be firm with him.
