Oueen has come back to our rescue needing a new home for her and her sister, Cinderella. They are looking for someone that will let them stay together. 
They have been on a long journey with an unimaginable set of circumstances that are not their fault.   They came to Diamond Dachshund in January of this year from a humane society that asked us to take them because they are mostly dachshund and the humane society wanted them to have a better chance to be adopted through our rescue. 
They came in and were fostered by different people in different homes. Then there was a wonderful previous adopter that wanted to adopt both girls to put them back together. Queen had severe depression and was challenging to reach until she got to live with her sister again. This was a successful match up and Cinder and Queenie were very happy together with their loving mom, this past spring. 
Recently their new mom has been diagnosed with Leukemia and can no longer provide them with a perfect home. She loves them very much. However she feels they must find a home with more stability. She wants what is best for the dogs now and in the future.  After being boarded for a month she reached out to us to ask us to please take them back and help them find a new forever family setting. Upon their return, they have been placed in a single foster home together. And therefore they are being observed, and kept together by one foster. 
Queen originally came into rescue with heart worms. She was successfully treated for them.  In addition to that Queen also had a limp on a hind leg due to a corn that had formed on a single pad on her hind foot. This caused her great pain and as soon as her heart worm treatment was successful the veterinarian removed the corn and it healed completely. 
There is some evidence that Queen does have some arthritis possibly connected to old injuries, but completely healed injuries, from her past. She does take glucosamine chews to keep her moving pain free and happy. Queen of can run and play and chases squirrels with her sister.
Queen has been on a long journey to be happy and healthy. She is loving and even playful once she warms up to you. However she can seem depressed and insecure when her circumstances change.  Her foster observed that when she was returned, her depression seem to only last a couple of days before she began to open up and relax, which has been very encouraging.
Her former adopter saw a change in her.  Slow but steady in the beginning and when she adopted her sister Cinderella, Queen became much more settled, warm, and content. 
Currently Queen’s personality shows an ability to make new dog friends and enjoy playing. She runs and chases squirrels. She sleeps with Cinderella at night in a large kennel, but both would prefer to be sleeping in the room with their person.  Queen is ok with older children that are respectful but may be slow to warm up to a child. She is not mean at all just slow to trust. She seems to like women but does accept pets from the man in the house.  
Queen seems to be an old soul with lots in her that no one will ever quite know for sure. There may even be abuse in her past we are not sure. All she needs is someone willing to take her slow and easy just the way she is, and in time she will share her soul with you. When this happens there will be a bond.   This is our greatest hope for Queen to find long term love and trust. 
Many times Queen chooses moments when she can be alone with the foster, and seems to be content to just lay close around. Queen is not needy. She accepts just quiet time with you.  However she is very responsive to personal attention now. You can see how happy she has become by being in a loving home, even though it was for just a short period of time. The former Adopter has contributed a lot to Queenie’s stability and joy in life to make her an enjoyable companion. 
The girls each have their own unique personality which is nice but they do hope they can stay together. It’s what seems to be what is best for both of them.
