Queenie in Cleveland, OH

Just Adopted!

Introducing Queenie! Queenie is very calm and affectionate and loves to be doted on. Queenie doesn’t run around the yard or play with toys, however she loves to sit in your lap and suck up every ounce of attention that she can get. She is looking for someone with a peaceful lifestyle to spend her retirement years with, and who will give her plenty of love and attention. The vet estimated that Queenie is 10 – 12 years old, but we are unsure of her past history. It is highly suspected that she was once a puppy mill dog and when she came into rescue she was in desperate need of some TLC. After a good bath and some time to herself, she easily acclimated to her foster home and her foster brother and sisters. Queenie is house trained and will go to the designated door when she has to go outside. She quickly adapted to the household routine and figured out where she could hang out and take her naps.

Queenie would do best in a relaxed environment with no young children, where someone is home most of the day and with a fenced in yard. She gets along with her foster brother and sisters, so other dogs in the home are fine. She takes two medications for her grade 5/6 heart murmur, one for her hips and knees and three eye drops which are administered three times daily in her right eye. The vet currently recommends that Queenie get a chest x-ray every three months and an echocardiogram twice a year to make sure that her heart medications are working properly. Because of her heart murmur, the vet feels that it is not safe for Queenie to go under anesthesia. So Queenie is not spayed, nor has she had a dental.

Queenie is looking for a special place to live out her retirement years with someone who can give her the love and attention that she needs. Queenie is eligible for our Share Care program, which provides reimbursement for half of the cost of her medications for the first year of her adoption.

  • Color: Ruby
  • Age: 10
  • Weight: 17 lbs
  • Sex: Female
  • House Training: Very dependable, but will need to be let outside about every 4-5 hours.
  • Medical Conditions: Grade 5/6 heart murmur requiring Vetmedin and Enalapril. Glaucoma, dry eye and ulcer in right eye requiring Cosopt, Diclofenac and Tacrolimus. Patella luxation grade IV in back legs. Dental treats needed since dental cannot be done. Up to date on all vaccinations.
  • Temperament: True to her Cavalier nature, loves to cuddle up and relax with her humans. She can become too warm at times and needs a cool place to relax. Very calm disposition.
  • Recommendations: Queenie needs a physically fenced yard to do her business and to exercise. While she can walk on a leash short distances, a fenced in backyard is preferred due to her heart issues. A home with minimal steps is also preferred due to her patella luxation. She would be fine either as an only dog in the home or in the company of other gentle, calm, friendly dogs. It is unknown how she would do in a home with cats. Someone home a great deal of the day would work best, since she requires eye drops three times per day and her medications are given twice per day. Queenie needs someone who will be able to follow up on her medical conditions and make her retirement years the best ever.
