Pet of the Week: Quiney

Get to know him: Quiney is a middle-aged red and white male whose world was turned upside down because of his family’s move overseas. He is loving and affectionate, has a constantly wagging tail and rides well in the car. Quiney is shy around other dogs initially but warms up quickly. He is up-to-date with all of his vaccines, neutered, heartworm-negative, microchipped and ready to go to a loving, permanent home right away.

For more information: CBHR is a volunteer-staffed, nonprofit organization that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes unwanted basset hounds in North Carolina and South Carolina. To see the almost 50 bassets available through the group or to fill out an adoption application, go to www.cbhr.com. Adoption fees range from $100 to $250 to help offset costs. Because of the high numbers of dogs in need of rescue from kill shelters, CBHR is unable to accept owner turned in dogs at this time. To contact the group, call 919-708-4247.
