No more quills for Kevin

On August 5, Kevin (formerly known as Midnight) appeared with Ali from Sidewalk Dog on Twin Cities Live! He came in to Red Lake Rosie's Rescue full of porcupine quills on his face and chest. He is now in a foster home with Pet Haven looking for his forever home.

Name/Nicknames: Kevin!
My Story: Midnight came to Red Lake Rosie’s malnourished and covered with porcupine quills. Most of the quills were located in his face and chest. From the pictures you can see all of the scabs from the quills that were removed. He has been doing very well in his foster home since then! Because he didn't respond to the name, Midnight, his fosters tried out a few others and he chose Kevin!

Hobbies: Midnight has had very little interaction with people in the traditional ways the average person is used to. He does not know how to play with a ball or a regular dog toy. He is more interested in just being around his owner by laying at your feet or getting scratched on his head or chest.

Commands/Tricks: Midnight has never been taught any commands or tricks and he is currently learning his name. Though he will come running when you whistle for him.

Crate / Potty Trained: Midnight has lived almost all of his life outside . He is currently being crate trained and potty trained. Even though he does not like going into his crate he is fine once he is inside. He has never had an accident in his crate or in the house.

Activity Level: Currently his activity level is low, but I would guess he will move to a medium level once he is used to his surroundings.

Fun things I do: Midnight loves to be close to any people he can. He likes to follow his foster parent around and will lay at your feet when you sit down. If you are standing next to him he will sometimes lightly chew your hand to get your attention. He also likes to sit in front of you and put his paw in your lap so you will give him attention. He is a sweet boy!

Socialization/who I currently live with: Multiple adults, a year old lab mix and a older small dog.

My Ideal Family: His ideal family would make the time to teach Midnight on how to fit into your household. Just this last week he took his first ride in a car, his first time inside of a house, and his first time up a set of stairs! The one thing you will not have to teach Midnight is how to be your best friend. Midnight loves any kind of attention you will give him and wants nothing more than to be your best friend.

Midnight is attending Pet Haven's medium/large dog adoption events and his adoption fee is $300 (cash or check only) and includes spay/neuter, heartworm check, current vaccinations, and microchip and registration.

Due to post-adoption services provided, it is Pet Haven's policy to only place dogs into homes within a 60-mile radius of the Twin Cities area.
