I had one dog that get into them 3 times.
Only once he went to the vet. He must of got into a young one. The young ones have quills as fine as the hair on your head. :o  There was more in his mouth,but a dog's inside lip is black and so are the young quills.
Once we was down in the woods and he did not come up to the house when I left. I grabbed my Grandmother's 22 and headed back,I knew he had something. He has quills in his front foot and could not make it back to the house. I left my Grandmother's 22 and carried him back. That was quite the long walk. I took the tractor to get the gun. ;D

It was a young one.
The quills had very little white on them.

Hope its smarter than our Goldens. One got into the same porcupine twice in one week. Double vet bills. Great companions; slow learners.
