Queenie is a German Shepherd who was pulled from a high kill shelter in Texas heavily pregnant and has since been busy raising her puppies, but has done her bit 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 and she will do best with someone who is experienced with the breed. She is highly intelligent (both the good and the bad....she is an amazing escape artist, lol!), very responsible, forms a strong bond, is affectionate and loyal to her people, more aloof with others and is willing to protect her own. She is not a noisy dog, seems to get on fine with other dogs, is moderately ok around cats. Older children only, please. Applications are available on the southpawsexpress.org website or by contacting Lucy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Her adoption fee is $450.
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 southpawsexpress.org site, and introductory emails always are welcomed to Lucy at email@example.com. 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.
