This is Urgent! The only other option is a kill shelter. Their time is growing small. Queenie and Dillon are a bonded pair. They are located with their temporary foster in Round Rock, TX. They are 9 yrs and were abandoned in their backyard after the family lost their home in the Dallas area and moved out.
They are healthy, up to date on shots and Heartworm negative. Queenie’s hips are weak and she will need to be on CHONDRO-GLUCOSAMINE supplements. Queenie is spayed but Dillon is not neutered. Our vet tells us that since he is older it’s a moot point. So that is up to you whether you will neuter him at a later date.
Dillon is underweight and Queenie is very underweight so both are on puppy food diet. Both are good eaters so we think it was just the stress of being boarded for 3 months before a foster took them in. Now Dillon is really picky eater. You will have to mix canned food, or hamburger and rice, or boiled chicken and gravy or something with his kibble.
They are potty trained but need basic obedience and leash walking training. Being older dogs they will have to go out more often…early in the morning and late at night to make it through the night and several times during the day so if somebody is home with them that would be the perfect set up for them.
Both are very sweet and loving. Dillon is very dependent on Queenie. Queenie is much more accepting, trusting, open, outgoing, etc. than Dillon. You will have to let Dillon approach you on his own time table. He is very shy with new people and a little nervous in new places. After 2 weeks with his foster he is just now coming for pets but then Queenie will push him away for your attention so you have to tell her its Dillon’s time. Queenie is fine with people and is soo happy to see you when you come home. She wants lots of attention and loves. But she is scared in new places and with new experiences but is curious about what is going on so that's good. They just need to settle in with a routine and get to know a few familiar people and places so they can start expanding their horizons a bit.
Queenie tends to be a bit alpha so a home with older, calm, easy going dogs would be best…or no dogs. Queenie doesn’t do well with cats. Kids are okay if they are well behaved around dogs and understand how to live with dogs.
They like to spend most of their time outdoors when it’s nice but need to be indoor dogs. Queenie will be scared to cross the door threshold at first but with lots of treats and praises she will get use to going in and out. She is very cagey on tile or wood so if you have carpet or rugs by your doors that makes her more comfortable.
Queenie and Dillon need a home with a family that has the patience and knowledge to deal with their fears and the adjustment period so that they can adjust well into their new home environment. They are just unsure of what’s going on and need a secure, safe, loving, home to come out of their shell and really bond with a family.
