Queenie is a trainer favorite here at the Sanctuary, because she loves showing off her moves and doing demos for Dogtown volunteers. She's incredibly smart and loves to learn. She's also a quick study with lots of energy. In Dogtown, Queenie is learning a bunch of training cues, suchas 'sit', 'down', 'stay', 'place', 'wait' and 'leave it.' She's also participating in agility. She's not only about the training though. Queenie is a fantastic canine ambassador because she's not fazed by new environments or by being out in public. She's done well with all dogs she's met atthe Sanctuary and has also proven to be a supreme snuggler who has become a major volunteer favorite. Born in 2016, she came to the Sanctuary from a Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network partner. She would thrive in an active home with someone who is willing to spend time working with and training her.
