Thanks to some concerned neighbors and a special lady at the Baldwin Park Animal Shelter, short stuff here has since found himself a place where he is King of Hearts and gets to cuddle and sit as close to his people as possible, even if that means he’s right on top of them. He lives with a loving couple who say this once-rejected Corgi has saved them, not the other way around.
“Dookster was in
terrible shape” says Jessica T. “When he got the call about him, my boyfriend EJ dropped everything and picked him up as a second anniversary gift for me.”
“Dookster was scared, malnourished and needed a bath badly. He has severe separation anxiety issues, is afraid of the dark, and had been treated pretty poorly. Dookster (aka Mr. Handsome, Uncle Gazpachio, turkey butt) has a slit on his right ear and had fleas long enough to cause a incurable
skin condition. With regular oatmeal baths it’s nearly unnoticable.”
With all the love and attention he now has, three year-old Dookster
looks better than he ever has. “He
never barks. He’s quiet yet energetic, behaves wonderfully, and after a
weeks’ time was house trained. We’re so happy Dookster isn’t miserable anymore!”
patience. He makes us want to be better and proactive towards the
adoption and care of Corgis everywhere. That’s Dookster’s story.”
And what a story it is.
