Queenie was dropped off at the shelter by her owner along with her sister Lily.
She is 7 years old and a nice and loving girl.
Queenie at the shelter then on
transport to her foster home.
Both girls meeting foster mom and dad.
Queenie is a 7-year-old, spayed, tiny peanut of a girl that is very
affectionate and a true snuggle bug!!
She likes to be near her people, and she LOVES attention.

This little girl likes going on walks and she currently walks in the morning
and evening with additional exercise in the yard in between. Queenie does
ok on leash, but will need some work to improve in that area.
At this point, she pulls; however, if reined in a bit she will walk near her
person.

Queenie is always alert and on the lookout for birds and other animals.
She will try and chase whatever is on the move. Queenie has a high prey
drive when in the yard and on walks. A physical fence is a must for her
due to her high prey drive. Her foster parents do not have an invisible
fence so it is difficult to say how she would do with one. She is very active
outside, so she does need a larger yard to burn off her energy. Queenie
has great recall inside and outdoors. She will promptly come when called
and sit next to you, except when she has a bird or rabbit in her sights.
Queenie is crate trained, but she will not enter willingly or on
command – this girl will hold out for a treat!! Speaking of treats,
she will take a treat nicely from your hand, but might get a little
pushy if offered a second one. Queenie does sleep in her crate at
night and if her foster parents are not home.
    
Queenie currently shares her foster home with a resident male
dog and her sister Lily as well as the resident cats. Queenie does
well with the resident male dog, but she is a little too curious
about the resident cats and shows interest in seeking them out.
If the cats run, Queenie will chase but if told to “leave it” or “no”
she will stop.  However, this is becoming constant.  Because of
Queenie's high prey drive, chasing the cats and wanting to go
where she knows the cats are, her foster parents feel she should
NOT be placed in a home with cats.

This sweet girl has not been around children in her foster home
so we are not exactly sure how she would do with them. She
does seem to be startled by loud noises both inside and outdoors
– even on walks, the cars that pass startle her, so young children
in the home might not be best.
If you are looking for a couch cuddler or
someone to ride shotgun in the car,
this sweet peanut of a girl may be perfect for you.
