Thistle is available to adopt, along with a ton of other amazing dogs at Muttville Senior Dog Rescue who deserve a great forever home!
Get to know Quigley:
This little chihuahua mix comes with a “little big man” outlook on life. Quigley seems to have come from a tough life and looks forward to a forever home with a family who will love and accept him for all his quirks and complexities. Quigley is a bit of a lone wolf and is happiest doing his own thing. He likes to have his head and back scratched as long as it on his terms. He’s a good eater and is very good about gently taking snacks from those he knows/trusts.
Quigley’s favorite thing to do is to lie out in the sun with occasional breaks inside for water and a cool-down. Quigley likes short walks but does tire after 15-20 minutes. He loves riding in a stroller where he can observe other dogs and people rather than encounter them. He understands potty pads and although has been wearing a belly band, he’s been fine during the day with no accidents!
Quigley is best suited for a quiet and mature household. He will definitely do best with a family that has had experience with fearful dogs, understanding that patience and love will help Quigley bloom! He is a super cute little guy who is fairly independent. He enjoys being near his people and other dogs, but also likes his space.
He is looking for a very special person who understands his independence and is looking for a companion that is not needy. Quigley deserves just as much love and compassion as any other dog and we cannot wait for him to find his person. Are you that person who just wants to help a dog in need and not ask anything in return? If so then Quigley is your guy. His fans at Muttville can see the shining light behind that eye and really want to help him find a home that is going to understand his needs and help him to trust that humans aren’t as terrible as he once knew them to be…
