Queen Latifah has personality and sparkle! She is a sweet social butterfly who shows affection with many kisses. Queen Latifah is such an easy-going, friendly dog that she has been chosen to go to several off-site events with volunteers. She is happy to be held and petted and is equally good with children as well as adults. Queen Latifah would be an excellent companion for any family looking for a sweet, lovable dog.
Queen Latifah's adoption fee is $120, which includes her spay surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations, and a free wellness checkup with a participating veterinarian.
