Beautiful Queenie (Rosie) was rescued from Downey Animal Shelter after giving birth to 12 puppies! Queenie was emaciated and very ill with pneumonia upon rescue, and trying to feed so many pups really took a toll on her. We almost lost her.

With the help of her devoted foster mom, Queenie recovered. She then survived Pyometra once pups were fully weaned and had to recover all over again. 

Once she recovered from Pyometra (her spay surgery took care of it), Queenie underwent 9 weeks of intensive behavior modification training with Yasin Ali of Empire K9 Training. She excels at basic commands, and eventually did well with pack training. Please see her video with her trainer.

She is wonderful with humans and children, but she cannot go to a home with children under 12 for precautionary reasons. She was unsure about other dogs because no one ever socialized her. She was most likely bred several times and maybe dumped pregnant because she was so sick. We'll never know, but her future looks bright thanks to her foster and her trainer.

Her trainer says she is an excellent, excellent dog who now shows confidence around other dogs but like any large dog, she will always have to be introduced properly. She will never be a dog park dog, and we do not recommend a home with cats.

Queenie needs an experienced Pitbull/Bully lover who understands the breed and will commit to working with her so she can fully blossom into the wonderful dog she is and live the life she deserves to live. Our dream is to find someone who connects to Queenie's story and sees the win-win in owning a rescued dog that has overcome huge obstacles. Dogs who have survived trauma and neglect are often wonderful therapy for people who have survived health, emotional, and other trauma and obstacles themselves. We often say rescued dogs help us much more than we help them.

About Cause for SB Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

Cause for SB Paws is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization dedicated to helping lost, abandoned, abused and homeless dogs from the streets and our city and county shelters in the San Bernardino area. Our goal is to rehome our rescued babies into pet-loving communities that will cherish these formerly forgotten souls.

We are a dedicated team of San Bernardino residents who grew frustrated with the substandard treatment of animals in our community and shelters. We foster all of the dogs we rescue so they can de-stress from their time on the streets or in the shelter system and get them used to the love and trust of being an inside companion animal living in a loving home. We also fully vet our dogs and treat any known issues, including dental, hernia repair, etc.
