OUR DOGS

 

We believe that all dogs are a lifetime commitment and members of the family and strive to find homes that share this same core belief.  Every dog is unique in its physical needs and personality. Our goal is to match families with dogs that best suit each other’s needs.

DIXIE (Available for Adoption!)

 

Hello friends! I'm Dixie - an 11yr old Pembroke Welsh Corgi, looking for my furever home! I'm a classy lady that enjoys a relaxing lifestyle of dog bed snuggles, leisurely walks, and outdoor adventures involving noms. I have a sensitive back so it'd be best for me to be on a single level home, or I'd need a boost on the human escalator. I'd be great for a first time corg parent and beginner dog owner, as long as they understand what us corgs are made of. I'm a classy lady with some street in me. I won't ever start a fight, but I'll certainly finish one! Do you work in a dog friendly office, from home, or are retired? Consider a plug n play girl like me!

For more information about Dixie, email info@qbsdr.org or submit an application for review.

 

CJ (Available for Adoption!)

 

CJ is a very sweet and cuddly senior chihuahua that's approximately 15 years old. He has CHF (congestive heart failure) which is maintained with medications. He is currently on Lasix, Benazepril, and Pimobendan. He has been in foster care for over three years, waiting for a loving, compassionate home to come along. One that will love him despite his age or CHF. It's been said time and time again by those who have met this sweet, old man, that he is unlike any chihuahua they've ever met.

This guy is incredibly mellow, low maintenance, and low energy. His favorite thing to do is cuddle in your lap or on the nearest dog bed. He is completely house broken and gets along with dogs and cats. He would make the perfect companion for anyone working from home, or an older, retired individual. If you've ever been interested in giving a senior a second chance at life, this is your boy!

CJ can be met by appointment only. Please submit an application today if interested in this sweet senior.
