Pasco — Quinnie

Quinnie is a 15-year-old female dog. She’s a sweet gal who just wants to be petted. She’s content just to calmly sit next to you on the couch. She’s a senior dog, so she does have a few minor conditions shelter volunteers will teach you how to control. For more information, contact the Pasco County Animal Services at 813-929-1212.

Shelter volunteers describe him as a sweet, gentle and quiet soul. At times he seems defeated, so he literally needs a soft place to land in a home with lots of love to share.
