All that Queen, a doting mother and 10-year-old shelter dog, wants for Mother’s Day is a forever home. But this loyal mama has one condition. As much as Queen wants her own family, any would-be adopters must understand that Freddy, her 4-year-old son, is also part of the deal.
Queen and Freddy have been through thick and thin together, according to People, which reported the mother-son pair once had their own home. But circumstances changed, forcing their owners to relinquish Queen and Freddy to a shelter.
The devoted duo spent the next 8 months waiting for to meet their new family, but nobody ever came to adopt them. Fortunately, Homeward Trails, a Washington D.C.-based animal rescue, got wind of this sad story and found a foster family for this sweet pair. This gave rescuers more time to find suitable homes, although it quickly became clear this devoted duo needed a permanent home together.
Queen is such a loving mother that she can’t stand to be without her beloved son, not even for a second. According to People, Queen’s foster mother has never seen a mama dog so devoted to her grown-up pup. Meanwhile, Freddy is an adorable mama’s boy and the perfect canine son.
