Jeanette De Mars of Corgi Connection of Kansas wrote to The Daily Corgi about handsome Benny C, a five year-old sable Pem who’s been through a lot but still has plenty of love to give.
“Corgi Connection was contacted by Kansas inspectors about taking a Corgi from a puppy mill holding 1,500 dogs. (That’s not a typo!) The owner was cited for lack of care of the dogs. Among the hundreds there was a lone Corgi stuck away in a cage. Corgi Connection was told the dog had a nose and lip injury but no indication of how severe it was. I agreed to take him because our group gives preference to dogs in-state, and he might have been euthanized otherwise.”
“What a shock when I saw the full extent of his injury. I actually cried. However, the wonderful person who helped get Benny transported across the state reminded me not to remember his past but look forward to his promising future.”
“Benny C is named after a childhood acquaintance who had a cleft palate. Benny went on to serve our country and lead a normal and productive life; it is our hope that Benny C will be given the opportunity to live a normal life as a loved and spoiled pet.”
“The breeder told authorities Benny was attacked by an adult dog when he was a puppy and the injury was left untreated. It’s a wonder he lived! I’ve consulted about having his injury repaired in some way, but since he has no physical ailments I decided not to put Benny through such a surgery just to make him look better to us humans.”
“Despite Benny’s horrific injury, his personality is terrific and you quickly learn to look past it. He has no special physical needs and is able to eat, drink and chew. He does drool some, but it’s nothing compared to some other breeds.”
“Benny’s been neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested and had dental work done. He’s also learning house manners, how to go for long walks, come to his name and some basic commands. He’s discovering TOYS and in typical Corgi fashion is gathering them all up for safe keeping. Benny does well in his crate and prefers to sleep there at night with the door open.”
“Benny is a very affectionate dog and really loves to be around people, although he can be a little aloof at times. He is OK with cats — still curious. I wouldn’t recommend him to a house with young children. He is OK with other dogs, but I believe it would be best for Benny C to be an only dog so he can be the center of attention all the times.”
“He is such a gentle boy and has so much love and joy to give. It’s my hope we can give Benny C the lifetime Christmas present of a new permanent home!”
If you are interested in adopting Benny, please contact Corgi Connection of Kansas through their website or contact Jeanette directly at Jeanette@corgiconnection.com.

Such a sweet boy
he's adorable! i would adopt him immediately if it would be possible! i'm hoping he gets a good loving home!
I am always amazed when these poor dogs come out of hell and they're STILL smiling. I hope Benny finds the home that he richly deserves.
I hope he finds a perfect home….i just took in a sheltie from the same conditions…its heart breaking what they go thro,and amazing how fast they realize how wonderful love is.
Hurray for Jeanette and Corgi Connection. She is a hero!
I got my little Pie-Pie from her. I would take a dozen more if I could.
Hurray for Jeanette and Corgi Connection!
I adopted my little Pie-Pie from her back in July. I'd take a dozen more if I could.
You hear about "crazy cat ladies", well, I am so going to be one of the "Crazy Corgi Ladies" some day….
Nothing hurts my heat as much as seeing these poor dogs!!!If we didnt already have 2 pwcs now,I'd be in the truck on my way.Can't wait to see that he's been adopted!! .
If Christmas wishes come true, this special guy will have a happy home for Christmas! You do such a good job getting the word out. I love what you do!
how can people allow these things to happen to dogs who ask nothing from us except a little affection, and general care. it's horrific! greed is such a human condition that we allow things like this to happen to innocent animals, and then, not respond by giving needed care. those people should be shot! will hope and pray that just the right people adopt little Benny.
