About Pine

“Hi! I’m Pine – lovingly named after being quilled by a porcupine 5 times over my lifetime! I’m a curious fellow who would do amazing in a city home with a fully fenced yard so my curiosity of little creatures is limited!

I currently live with a canine foster sister who is teaching me that I don’t need to be so worried about missing out on food – thankfully she’s been tolerant of me being a bit growly during those moments.

Having one eye hasn’t stopped me from being my happy, playful, gentle self. I love to go for walks and my foster mom says how happy she is with my ability to walk on leash and my manners when greeting other dogs we meet along the way.

My foster mom has also been teaching me that toys are good to nip at rather than hands when I get excited during playtime and I’m proud to say I’ve learned quickly and let go as soon as I realize I got too excited. I may only have one eye because of my last run in with my foe, but I still have my whole heart and would love the opportunity to share it with you for the rest of my life!” – xo, Pine

Do I Need Special Care?

Yes, Medical Special Needs - Pine came into AARCS' care after having been quilled extensively. He had to have an eye removed as a result of this but has since recovered well. Due to his run in with the pesky porcupine, he may have more quills emerge from his face/body as time goes on and this could require further vet care
