“I was browsing the internet one afternoon in August of 2012” writes Marie L., “looking for Corgis for adoption. I saw an available Corgi in North Carolina on Petfinder. Two hours away, but still pretty close. Ducky’s picture was adorable and I immediately contacted the rescue organization about him. My husband and I were going to be in their area the following day, so we arranged a visit to the foster home to meet this Corgi. He was just as adorable as his picture, and the story of how he was rescued just broke my heart.”
“Ducky’s first week with us was spent establishing the “pecking order”. There was lots of squabbling about that. One night they got into a fight over a toy and Daisy made it perfectly clear to Ducky who was in charge. We spent about three hours at the vet getting Ducky’s ear sewn up. There have been no problems since: Ducky knows who the boss is!”
“Luckily, Daisy and Ducky have become serious BFF’s. She has done a great job as big sister with helping him to adjust. They adore each other and have so much fun together. These two keep us laughing all the time. Playing football in the backyard is their favorite thing to do, after which they come inside and have a long running fit before collapsing for a nap.”
“I’ve had lots of rescue animals throughout my life, but I’ve never had one so traumatized who then made such a dramatic turnaround like Ducky. I’m so proud of him and we love him so much.”
