Dusty Quinn (birth name: Lord Dustyn of Bankfieldshire) is a 75-pound German Short-Haired Pointer, who joined IPWatchdog on March 18, 2020. Along with his 5 litter mates, Dusty was born on January 4, 2020. He was “first interviewed” by Renée on January 21, 2020, when he was 2 weeks old. Needless to say, Dusty made quite the impression on Renée (she literally fell head over heels in love with him). Renée was very impressed with Dusty’s “credentials” and his ability to communicate was top-notch. Even though they were not looking to “hire” at the time, Renée just knew that Dusty would make a great addition to the IPWatchdog family.
Dusty had his “second interview” with both Gene and Renée on February 1, 2020, when Dusty was 25 days old. He clearly demonstrated his easy-going and friendly personality as he settled right in, clearly comfortable in the IPWatchdog environment. The decision had been made, Dusty and his sister Luna (Adorable Video Alert), were both “hired” to join the IPWatchdog family.
As the Director of Security, Dusty’s responsibilities include alerting us to visitors or potential intruders, ensuring Kasia and Erin make it safely to their cars at the end of the day, and letting us know (by jumping on our laps and whining) when it is time to stop working for the day.
Dusty Bear, as Renée likes to call him, turned 2 on January 4, 2022, and has grown into quite a handsome young dog and can often be seen laying on his couch bed behind Renée or jumping up on Renée’s lap during video calls. Dusty’s favorite foods are bully sticks and piggy ears. He enjoys chewing on sticks, chasing birdies, playdates at the Puppy Park, playing “Mommy, Chase Me” and taking naps. Dusty lives in Northern VA with his mom and dad, and his 2 days younger sister Luna (same dad – Gunner, different mom – Dutchess).
