Recently, The Corgi Connection of Kansas heard about two breeding Corgis who would be put up for auction at a breeder’s auction. On their website, they tell the story of dogs number #168 and #169.
Dogs #168 and #169, now known as Joey and Kia, are somewhat social, but still timid and in foster care, and learning their manners to enjoy indoor living. Kia and Joey will then move on to their forever homes to enjoy life as beloved family members instead of breeding machines with numbers. Thank you to all our friends who donated specifically for this cause.
Kia will be three years old in June. She is a total lovebug and enjoys just watching things while sitting on your lap. She also enjoys a good chase with her friend, Joey!
Joey is the more timid of the two, but continues to improve. He just recently mastered the four or five rather steep steps leading in and out of the backyard at his foster home. He is a silly boy who loves to take off zooming, either chasing or being chased, or just to zoom! Joey turned two in November.
Both are crate-trained but still working on housetraining. They enjoy multiple walks a day and are doing well on their leashes, in addition to play time in a fenced yard. We would not recommend them to a home with young children, however, as it may be too stressful for them.
Ideally, Corgi Connection would like to have Joey and Kia adopted together but we realize that is a big undertaking as both of the dogs will need “continuing education” on such things such as housetraining and basic obedience. Their adoption fee is $275 each. They are both up to date on vaccinations, have been heart-worm tested (-), are on preventative and micro-chipped. Joey is being treated for a mild case of kennel cough, which he must have contracted while at auction; we expect him to be symptom free and non-contagious in about three weeks.”
