Sweet-faced P.J. is a real sweetheart of a Corgi. He just turned four and came to Corgi Connection of Kansas Rescue in good condition from a home where there were five dogs. PJ’s owner got overwhelmed by all the dogs under one roof, especially after PJ and his doggy daddy got into a fight and had to be separated.
Although he seems pretty happy, the rescuers aren’t sure yet how he gets along with other dogs. Until they figure that out, they are waiting to place PJ in a foster home.
Though he lived his life essentially outside with his mother (with access to a warm building), PJ came to rescue in very nice condition.
This friendly guy has some joint condition(s); hip dysplasia or arthritis, to be determined by x-rays from his previous vet and an exam by a local vet. He has been on some pain reliever and seems to get around fine.
Little April’s owner contacted Corgi Connection of Kansas after her 11-year old shepherd took a sudden disliking to the petite Corgi. Keeping them separated has become too much for the owner to handle. Because it would be quite difficult to re-home an 11-year old shepherd, she has made the gut-wrenching decision to find April a new home.
Corgi Connection does NOT yet have three year-old April, as they don’t have a place to foster her. According to the owner, she does fine with other dogs and kids. April kind of likes to chase cats and she’s house-trained.
Jack is 6 years old and frankly just too much of a handful for his owner, who has several other pets and is making plans to move this summer. She feels Jack would do better in a home where’s he not fighting to be the top dog. Not literally fighting, but as she put it, always trying to push the boundaries to be the top dog, or a child trying to get attention even if it isn’t not positive attention. Jack is NOT yet with Corgi Connection either, owing to the lack of an available foster home.
Maybe he can bust that gridlock down in D.C. … if any dog could do it, it would be a Corgi, don’t you think?
If you are interested in possibly adopting or fostering any of these dogs, or want to inquire about becoming a foster for Corgi Connection of Kansas, e-mail Jeanette at email@example.com. They do transport dogs for adoption, at cost to adoptive families. The dog who changes your life might just be waiting to meet you, but you’ll never know unless you raise your hand.
Hint. Hint. Hint.
This is a lovely post with encouragement to get involved. Best wishes to all of these doggies.
I'm interested in April. Whom do I contact? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
