Queenie is a German Shepherd, approximately four years old, who was pulled from a high kill shelter in Texas heavily pregnant and in rescue got to the busy work of raising her puppies, and now is ready to move onto a forever ending of her own :) She is purebred, although her ears did fail to stand, and a real deal GSD....not a reconstructed Labrador Retriever. She is GREAT company - very playful, joyful and extremely affectionate. If a German Shepherd can be merry, that would be her. She is highly intelligent (both the good and the bad....she is an amazing escape artist, lol!), very responsible, forms a strong bond, and is an energetic girl with an extremely playful and fun personality. While Queenie is very social and affectionate towards her people....great company!....she is not fond of strangers with typical breed aloofness and has a protective nature. She is not a noisy dog, likes other friendly dogs, and ok around cats. Older children only, please, as toddlers make her nervous.

THE RIGHT HOME for Queenie needs to have breed experience. Queenie is territorial and protective by her nature. When displaced, she forms a strong bond, but meet-and-greets will require patience and understanding as she is not receptive to strangers. This is a higher energy girl who belongs with someone active. She crates well and is overall a good housedog, but if bored and under stimulated will be destructive. She will do fine in a home with another well adjusted dog and has learned not to bother cats, but she should not be around smaller children - they are very foreign to her and she finds their movements unsettling.

Applications are available on the website or by contacting Lucy at Her adoption fee is $450.

About Southpaws Express

About Our Rescue Group...

Southpaws Express is the brainchild of highly rescue-experienced women, one coming from a southern shelter background and the other from New England breed rescue. We try our best to combine our experience to do right by dogs in high kill shelter regions while paying tribute to the New England protocols that put dog rescue so successfully on the map.

We are, and prefer to remain, small, pulling only a few dogs at a time and offering individualized attention to our prospective adopters. A commonality we share is that we are both "big picture" people, a core belief being that every dog we take in, and every adoption we complete, should move rescue forward. We believe in great ambassador dogs for rescue, happy adopters, and an adoption process that is both experienced and caring. We are not rigid or inflexible, and it is always our goal to build advocacy for rescue. We want you to have a good time!

Be it through adoption, volunteerism or education, we welcome you to our family!

Our Adoption Process...

Southpaws Express is a progressive rescue that prides itself on an intimate, individualized application process. We strive to make it as friendly and personalized as we can, and assist with good matching advice and direction, catered to the individual....the individual dog and adopter. Our application is available on the site, and introductory emails always are welcomed to Lucy at Our standard adoption fee is $400 ($450 for puppies), which helps defray the weighty cost of transporting our foster dogs up north from their high kill southern environments and providing an excellence of vet care, but some dogs will be discounted, due to age or exceptional needs.
