Hi everybody, just putting Yogi Boo at the top of the blog again! He is really hankering for a new home, and his Mom would like to remind us that he has only bitten her once a year … please don’t hold it against this fine fellow, who has likely been mistreated in his earlier years.
His family situation is a tough one, as his two-footed sister is quite ill and Mom has to be gone so much of the time … Yogi Boo is looking forward to company and a more active social life in his new digs.

My name is Yogi Boo and I am (just ask me) a Very Good Dog. A real catch, in fact, and I’m looking for some new digs. My ideal home is a farm where I can hard cats and horses. I love to tell horses what to do.
My Mom Geannie took me in as a rescue about three years ago. She says that although I’m “just the sweetest thing, usually”, I’m not a cuddly Corgi. I’ve got some weirdness about my neck area, it may be because of some abuse in my past … people are not always nice to dogs, even Corgis. Can you believe it?!
Geannie needs to re-home me because she’s away a lot nowadays, traveling long distances to be with her daughter, who’s sick and really needs our Mom around. Trixie (the other Corgi here) is fine in the car but not me, so I have to be home alone a lot. I’m not happy being left alone so much of the time. Hey, I’m a Corgi … I need company!
Anyway, Mom says that at times I have “a bit of a screw loose”, because I’ve bitten her a few times and recently someone else too, so I need a home with someone who knows how to deal with my special needs. I’m never aggressive when I bite, and it’s always on the hand. Mom says she can usually tell when I’m getting frustrated and knows when to leave me alone.
Mom thinks I look more like a Cardi than a Pem by my body structure. OK, so I’m on the husky side. My tail was docked pretty short. I’m a large boy, neutered (ugh) and up to date on my shots. I guess I could stand to lose some weight.
Get this: I stay in the yard even without a dog fence! I’m generally a happy little guy who will follow you around wherever you go, and greet you when you pull up in the driveway. I tolerate the cats around my house, but there was that one time I went after one of them. He was full-grown and managed to win the fight. (Embarassing). I get along well with other dogs and love children, but because of my biting, Geannie wouldn’t place me anywhere with children.
Now that you know all about me, you can see why going to the shelter’s not really an option for a fellow like myself. They won’t adopt out a dog with a history like mine, even with THIS face. Hard to believe anybody could resist, I know …
To contact my Mom Geannie about me, e-mail her at email@example.com.
Thank you! I’m looking forward to meeting you soon!
Dear sweetest Yogi Boo I just know someone with a kind loving heart will give you a good home!

Good luck to you, handsome boy. We took in a "biter". After some work with a trainer and a lot of patience, it was worth it. We gave Ivy the best 18 months of her life and that's what we got in return.
Good luck Yogi!! As for the biting, corgis use their teeth when they herd, so that's not so unusual – at least not with the 4 I have had! My Eddie has sensitive skin, and does not like "scratching" – just flat handed petting. You will get teeth on your hand (not too hard) if you scratch him. We learned!
