Are you lonely and looking for a devoted friend? Are you home a lot and need a little company? Queen Bean might just be your new best friend! QB is a very devoted and gentle dog who bonds very strongly with her human. She is a little frightened and doesn’t do well with busy households, big dog parks or bustling neighborhoods. She would be great for a family with older, dog-respectful kids, or with a person or couple who live a quiet lifestyle.
Queen Bean is a beautiful Hound/Saluki mix. She is 5 years old, which is a perfect age because she is done being a puppy and has a lot of years left to be your friend. She is spayed, has had all of her shots and is also house-trained and crate trained. She does well with small dogs and is quite gentle with bunnies in the yard. She could be OK with cats depending on the cat’s temperament.

Foster Mom Comments:
Queen Bean loves to go for walks and currently does well with small dogs. Her foster is working with her slowly with large dogs, though, as she was attacked by a dog at the dog park in the past.
She loves to go for walks and makes a great jogging partner. She also loves to go for car rides. When she's not out and about, she loves to snuggle up and sleep in a quiet place of her own. As you can see from her pictures on www.motleyzoo.org, she is a photography ham! An experienced applicant would be great, someone that is home a lot, and wants a dog that will be their best friend!
Queen Bean is a very loving, obedient and heavily bonded and gentle dog - but she has had a rough past. She needs a confident and assertive, yet gentle, handler. She doesn't need to be manhandled or bossed, but she does need someone to help instill confidence. She would do best with an owner that she can follow and look to for guidance, and who won't let her get away with being stubborn or reluctant when she needs to overcome a challenge.
Queen Bean is good on the leash--she only pulls a little. She is much improved with being frightened or reactive to cars while on her walks, but this will be something she will need to continue to work on. She'd do better in a quieter neighborhood or rural area. However, as a hound, when she catches a scent she will go for it, so off-leash is going to be a work in progress.
Does Queen Bean sound like the dog for you? Please go to the Motley Zoo website at www.motleyzoo.org or you can email email@example.com to fill out an adoption application. Motley Zoo does not have a shelter, but instead houses all its homeless dogs/cats in loving foster homes. There is an adoption donation for all pets in order to help pay for their spaying/neutering, shots and care. In addition, this money goes toward the continued rescue work of Motley Zoo.
