If you’re looking for laid back and mellow, go for a hound from the
pound. Need less excitement about squirrels, moving blades of grass, suspicious shadows and nocturnal noises? Not for you the Corgi, whose sworn duty it is to run The Universe. At the very least your corner of it.
felicitous series of unlikely events conspired to bring the low
riders into their lives, one by one. The “Corgi Curse” they call it, jokingly. “A mystery and a joy.”
Tucker escaped euthanization as a puppy because his blue eye was deemed unacceptable. His health and sight were fine, that blue hue wasn’t. Tucker made his way into the family when Melanie found him at the vet’s, where he’d been brought in to be put down.
Cricket (also sporting a sky blue eye) was abandoned in exasperation by his previous owners before he found his forever home at Proud Spirit. His behavioral issues vanished once he found himself in the company of a bunch of well-adjusted dogs.
Exploring the woods … life is interesting!

Your heart will thank you, and so will some very grateful, hard-working people.
