#10768 Queen (Momma of the Chess Pieces)

Medium-size, Female, Adult Hound,

🐾 Queen, of all the names to choose I get this? Are they kidding me? I know looks can be deceving, as I'm sure you have seen my pictures? But what I'm doing is laying in my comfort zones!
🐾 So 1st thing. If you choose me, and I you to adopt me, the name must change to one of both of our liking, so start thinking of one!!
🐾 My foster mom will be starting to review adoption applications with me of course me looking over her shoulder, so I get the perfect fit. Oh yea, might help to know that I am 3 years young and about 60lbs. Let’s keep my weight to us. I can't let just anyone know my weight.
🐾 I have not been around many kids yet. So I am may best best with children that are more dog savvy, and would give me my space and understand that not all humans have been nice to me. However, I will need time to trust you before I show you that I can be silly. I hardly make a sound. So far I have had a few barks when I heard a noise in the woods. Once you prove yourself to me I will be your greatest friend.
🐾 Some things about me you should know.
*Temperament-I’m told is fabulous!
*Crate- Don’t need one! I'm a good house guest.
*Potty in the house- Gross, why would I?
*Take food not offered-that would be rude!
*Fenced yard, is a must! I love being outside and laying around.
🐾 This is the big one-HIKES! I love hikes or long walks in the woods. Walking around a neighborhood bores me. I’m a rough- tough, get dirty in the woods kinda girI. I’m exceptional on a leash also.
🐾 I will need time to trust you. And fun alert! I love hotdogs and treats and they help with bonding to me. I am such a chill dog, you don't even know I'm around.
🐾 I need a patient adopter, and an active one, who loves to hike and be in the woods, the one place that is my true passion. Is my soul mate adopter out there?
🐾 I was an outside dog. That could be why I like being outside, most of all. If you are ever looking for me, you will find me laying around soaking up the sun 🌞 and just enjoying the outside.
🐾 Due to my needs to succeed, I must have a home with a fenced yard. No apartment or condo for me, and the more in the country the better. I get scared easily from loud sounds, and sounds I'm not used to hearing.
🐾 I have learned that inside is nice, and I do live with sibling fur friends. We play sometimes, but nothing beats a lay in the yard for me.
🐾 Oh and did I mention I’m beautiful? See how my fur just shines in the sun as I sit back and enjoy the sun. Nothing makes me happier than the great outdoors.
🐾 So get ready for some hiking fun outside! What do you say? Let’s go Hiking! Oh yea, don't forget to hit apply.

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

Queen (Momma of the Chess Pieces) is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. Queen (Momma of the Chess Pieces) is currently being fostered in Bel Air, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
