Queen the sweet little Border Collie was adopted by what Aaron Vannoy Executive Director for the Abilene Animal Control Shelter says is a "Border Collie rescue group." "The dog 'Queenie' that you came and did as the KEAN Critter has found a rescue group to take him. This is great news and another success. I will share photos of when they come get Queenie" Vannoy said.  A big thank you goes to everyone that helped with this awesome little critter. The smartest and best pets come from animal shelters like the one right here in Abilene.

Can you help us save a Border Collie named Queen?

Queen is an owner turn in, which means that the previous owners did not want her because they moved to a place that does not allow pets. That said, we must save her-majesty the Queen, not only because she is of royalty she's also very sweet and trusting, but this KEAN Critter is already house broken and follows basic commands. I asked myself "what nut job, lets an awesome pet like Queen go?" Here is your prime opportunity to strike at rich with the worlds smartest dog. Please come and get her! before she's put down.


Queen requires no special treatment, she just wants love and a good home. Now remember Queen is a Border Collie mix, which means she is a highly intelligent dog. She ain't no ordinary run of the mill mutt, she's royalty with a brain. She can sit, stay, fetch, shake and go outside to do her duties. I mean this little girl is trained. Remember in December dogs are 50% off and cats are at least 55% off plus Queen has her shots and is micro-chipped already, so that will save you some major cash. Queen weighs only 47 pounds is great with kids and other pets (she came from a house full of them), she eats dry dog food and loves playing fetch. Did I mention that she's also on sale for 50% off and cats are 55% off during the month of December.

Please go to the Shelter today, look at Queen and all the other beautiful critters that need you and me to save them. This Border Collie has been at the shelter for a while now and has only days left to live. Now if you can help, here's all the information on Queen the KEAN Critter.
