Four year-old Buddy’s foster Mom Ellen says he’s a real lovebug.
An owner surrender, Buddy comes from a home where the owner knew little about Corgis but had always wanted one. (No, Corgis really aren’t right for everybody!) He came to Corgi Connection of Kansas labeled a “difficult dog”, but Buddy is a typical Corgi who needed to be shown the rules.
“He’s a large boy, weighing in at about fifty pounds. The vet says he should lose some weight but walkies and a good diet should do it.”
“Buddy’s leash pulling has been solved with an Easy Walk harness (which will go with him). He gets along well with other easygoing dogs like the Corgi in his foster home, and does well when he visits Wayside Waifs Dog Park. He can get upset around reactive dogs so should go to a home with calm dogs.”
“He is current on shots, teeth cleaned (they’re beautiful!), heartworm negative, housebroken, crate trained, free of separation anxiety, food or toy guarding issues, and has access in the house. He knows basic commands and responds immediately with the right lure. Buddy is OK with cats and young kids, but not tested with toddlers. He loves walkies, riding in the car, being out in the yard with his pack and will snuggle with you in the evening. Buddy is so devoted to his people pack that it would be nice if he could go to a home where he has a human or dog friend during the day. He’s just a really sweet guy who needs a family that knows Corgis, will show him that new things can be fun and give him frequent belly rubs!”
In the middle of the Corgi guards!

What a sweet boy! It makes me sad to think that he was "surrendered." From the description, he is just a typical Corgi! He's going to make somebody VERY very happy! Best wishes, Buddy!
Buddy sounds like a true corgi to me! I pray he finds his forever home soon, but happy to know his foster family loves him until that day comes.

Wish this Corgi lived closer to Calif. My son had a corgi as a kid and now I am a widow & he moved back from Alaska to take care of me & keeps talking about getting a dog
like "Canejo" his corgi when he was young.He is 46 yrs old now but still loves corgi's.

I wish he was in CA, too. We're used to strong personalities at our place and he'd be a perfect addition to our pack (one 5 year old Corgi, a 6 year old Dobie, and older, dog-friendly cat). In the house they are mellow couch potatoes, with occasional bouts of the zoomies, but they love their walks and running at the dog park. Buddy would drop those extra pounds in no time!
