Queen Victoria is a 2-3 year old female, spayed, up to date on her shots, and heartworm negative. She was pulled from the shelter where she had been left by her family who didn't know how to work with her. She is 100% deaf and has begun learning sign language, she has already learned "no," "come," "outside," "out" (to leave the room), and is working on "sit" and "down." Queen is very intelligent and is learning very quickly. She is extremely affectionate and will do anything for a belly rub.

Queen is good with children, cats and other dogs. She does need to adjust around other dogs and it takes her about a week to figure out where she stands in the family, but once that is determined and she is comfortable that she will not be dumped somewhere, she settles right in. She is 100% crate trained and house trained. She has impeccable house manners. She barks to go out, to be let out of her crate, and to tell you she wants attention. Nothing excessive, just enough to let you know she is looking for her person. She will find you in the house to ensure you are still there and then go back to her bed to lay down. She does not get on furniture and is not destructive at all.

Queen is overweight and her foster Mom has her on a diet. We are working on getting her to run with her foster brother and sisters to exercise off her excess 30+ pounds. If you have a securely fenced yard for our Queen Victoria to use as a fitness club, you might be the family for her.
