Adoptable dachshund Queenie is a special girl. She’s has had a lot of trauma in her life and yet she has one of the most bright, happy dispositions of any dog ever known. Something happened with regard to her pelvis and x-rays show that it was broken at one time but has healed. She sometimes sidesteps a bit in the back when she walks due to that but it is not painful at all.
Adoptable Dachshund Queenie
She doesn’t bark a lot. However, at meal time she will bark to tell you it is time to eat. This 14 pound wonder is serious about her food.
Queenie is friendly with new dogs and people and lives up to her name in the most gracious way. Her happy disposition shines through!
She is mostly pee pad trained but will go outside to potty if offered the opportunity. Her bladder muscles are very weak and she may drip some in the house while walking. Also, her rectal muscles are weak and she is able to push her bowel to the very end of her rectum but it collects there and you need to squeeze on either side of her rectum (on the outside of her body) to finish expelling the bowel. She does not get constipated, she just cannot move the normal bowel beyond that point.
Queenie is house trained. She’s good on very short walks only and wouldn’t be interested in a long one. She just pokes along and prefers to explore outside on her own. Queenie sleeps in a dog bed. If given the opportunity she’d probably sleep with you in the big bed, but she hasn’t been sleeping with foster parents.
This sweet girl is good with kids, people, and dogs. Although we don’t know exactly how she would respond to cats, it’s likely she would just ignore them.
Being a senior and needing extra help with regard to potty issues is just a very small price to pay for the love and fun she brings to every day. She does wear a diaper well to handle any drips that might occur during the day and of course, she wets the diaper during the day as well. She uses the dog door and enjoys the sunshine. Queenie uses stairs to get up and down off the couch with you and is just an overall joy to be around.

If you believe you could provide a safe and loving forever home for this dog, please fill out an application with the dogs’ name on it.
The adoption fee helps to cover costs, as each dog is fully vetted, and treated, as needed to prepare them to move forward in their new life. You pay no fee unless you are chosen to adopt.
*Be advised, we have a couple of volunteers processing hundreds of applications. We are unable to call everyone back as we do not have ANY employees. Our dedicated volunteers and foster parents will check references for the applications that appear to be a good match. At that time, if you are chosen, we will contact you to arrange a home visit.
