The Queen was Queen Anne when I met her while doing photos for adoption ads for Nashville Humane Association and I featured her twice in the newspaper ads I was sponsoring. She was adopted and returned three times. One day when I went to do the photos for the adoption ad that week one of the employees met me in the parking lot and told me that she was back. I had recently said goodbye to Barney, a previously feral Hound mix who had been living between Brick Church Pike and Interstate 65 when we rescued him, and was one of the six dogs who moved with me to the farm so I made a quick decision to give Queen Anne her furever home. I thought adopting another Hound mix would be a good tribute to Barney.
When I took her to SVS for her first visit she refused to go into the exam room and she weighed more than 90 pounds. The vet and staff moved to another room and she found that one suitable. She was extremely strong willed (stubborn) and very sweet with people and all the dogs she met. She learned how to open doors and gates and remove items from counters. I often commented that she was a quick learner and very intelligent if the information would benefit her. I soon began calling her "The Queen" . She had an indoor/outdoor lifestyle but could not be left in the house unsupervised. We loved The Queen and were happy to make the adjustments she required.
