Hello friends! Rosey of Kansas here, looking for some new digs. Who will be the lucky family?
Fast facts about me:
* I am (obviously) gorgeous. Line forms to the right.
* I’m about five years old. I’ve spent most of my life so far in an outside kennel, where I had a litter of adorable pups. We’d have preferred the Bone Appetit Maternity Suite at the Ritz, but alas, it was not to be. When my family moved out of state and couldn’t find a place to live where dogs were OK (seriously — missing out, people!), I wound up at Corgi Connection of Kansas Rescue. By then my single mother days were behind me. And it’s a darn good thing, too. Because really … every meal al fresco, sleeping under the stars? That stuff is for vacations in the Outback or camping in the woods. Not a dog’s life 365.
* While I like the indoor life, crating is SO not my style. A crate? You don’t want to see my scared face any more than I want to show it. My dears, this is non-negotiable. Surely you’ve heard of the royal Corgis across the pond? How often do you think they get crated? I rest my case.
* A few weeks ago I was adopted by a wonderful family, but their resident Corgi — also a Corgi Connection rescue — didn’t care to share her home with me. Well. Sometimes girl Corgis can be such … well, I don’t need to say it, do I? I would’ve been happy to stay, and the uprights liked me, but that other Corgi … let’s just agree that sometimes a lass needs a nest of her very own to feather. I will not speak ill of the sisterhood.
My former foster family was willing and able to take me back, so now we’re on the hunt for my furr-ever family.
* I come with a few built-in challenges. Let’s call them quirks, not challenges! Because I lived outside for so long, I am not yet completely house-trained. Can you help me learn how to be a true pet? Patience, love and positive training will go a long way. I can be a bit bossy, so a home where I’m the only dog (or with a low-key male dog who knows his place) would be the right fit for me.
* Ideally, there will be someone around in my new home more often than not. Waiting long stretches for company? Not my idea of a good time. I need to bond. I really want to be loved, even if I am a bit bossy, and that’s the straight-up truth. I make up for it with major cuddle-bugging. MAJOR.
* They have spayed me, vaccinated me, microchipped me and determined I’m heartworm negative. In other words, practically perfect.
So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Every word is true! If you would like to apply to adopt me, please drop a line: email@example.com.
They will transport out of state if the fit is truly right, so don’t be reluctant if you don’t live in Kansas. There are 50 beautiful states in our fine country, and frankly, any of them would be bettered by the addition of a gorgeous Corgi.
Next up, Corgi mix Kasha of Sacramento, California!
This ebony darling has the classic Corgi smile and a shiny coat that begs to be touched.
The folks at Sacramento Independent Animal Rescuers say Kasha is fella with a long, low body and full-sized personality. (That’s the Corgi part). He’s about 5 or 6 yrs old and does just fine with other animals. Kasha has a generally nice disposition, though he can be a bit grumpy at times, making him perfect for a family who appreciates a quirky personality!
The love of a black dog (or cat) is just as powerful as any other. Ask Ann and John of North Carolina, who got their fabulous black Corgi mix Gracie from a shelter last year. I get regular updates about their Queen of Hearts, who is clearly both the moon and the stars in their eyes.
