Adoptable Animals of the Week: Meet Queenie and Royal

This bonded duo is looking for a great family who can keep them together.

Names: Royal; Queenie

Case Numbers: #7039; #7040

Hi, my name is Royal,  and I am a sweet, affectionate dude. I make friends quickly with new people, even the most unusual of strangers, and love to be petted and massaged.

I am devoted to my dog “sister” Queenie (she's the tan one.) I am very distracted and unsettled when I’m away from her that's why we're hoping to find a wonderful family who could adopt us both to keep us together. As they say, two is better than one!

Though I’m not terribly playful now, I may become more so once in the home. Because of my size, I might be better in a family with older kids, though I tend to be polite and don’t jump up. I tolerate all types of handling and will readily share my food with people. I am interested in making the acquaintance of even the most unusual strangers (hooded, limping, etc) and, if given a little time (and a treat!), I will make friends with them.

I have not been evaluated with other dogs yet, because I was not feeling my best at time of evaluation. While I’ve lived with another dog, she may have been my only doggie friend. I don't know any basic commands but heck, I may do just about anything for you once you’re my person!

I am proud to say that I walk nicely on the leash. Training may help build my confidence and will help us forge a relationship.

To learn more about adopting Queenie and Royal, please contact the  at (516) 785-5220 or stop by the shelter, which is located at 3320 Beltagh Avenue in Wantagh. Adoption hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. All adopted pets will be spayed or neutered, will receive all required innoculations and will be microchipped, all free of charge.

From June 20 to Sept 20, the shelter is running its "Summer of Love" promotion, which means all adoptions are free!
