Quincy, the accelerant detection dog for Clearwater Fire & Rescue, is in the running for the American Humane Hero Dog Awards.
CLEARWATER – Quincy, the accelerant detection dog for Clearwater Fire & Rescue, is in the running for the American Humane Hero Dog Awards.
Voting continues through May 3. Eight four-legged finalists and their two-legged companions will be flown to Hollywood for an awards show to be telecast live in the fall on the Hallmark Channel.
Quincy was a 4-month-old Labrador mix when Assistant Fire Marshal Ron Neuberger, who quickly noticed he always wanted to smell and look for things, adopted him from Pet Pal Animal Rescue. He is now almost 9 years old and has helped investigate hundreds of fires and has assisted in the conviction of more than 100 people.
Quincy is the only accelerant detection dog in Pinellas County and assists all fire departments within the county and also surrounding counties.
