“Toby’s the most sensitive dog we’ve ever met. Though he was socialized as a puppy, he’s still scared of new people at first.””He’s also hyper-sensitive to our moods, which makes it hard to watch sporting events around the house. If we yell at the TV, Toby runs into his kennel.”
“My husband is a student at law school three hours away, and he commutes back and forth every week. He wanted a travelling companion, and since we didn’t want to split up Toby and Hef, we decided to rescue a Pem, Henry.””We didn’t know a lot about Henry when we rescued him, other than he was a former mill dog. He was very skinny and had to have several teeth removed, causing his tongue to fall to the side of his mouth. I personally find this adorable, but it also makes me sad thinking of his previous living conditions.”
mill. He has an unnatural attachment to his kennel and paces in circles whenever he’s excited or nervous.””While Hef and Toby quickly accepted Henry into the pack, Henry didn’t really care about the other dogs at all. He just wanted his humans. Once again, though, Toby’s sweetness saved the day.”
“Six months after being rescued, Henry finally “played” with Toby for the first time. It’s been Corgimania wresting in our house ever since …
… though sometimes they do stop to rest.”
“Henry thrived so much with the other dogs, we decided it was best for him to remain at home with the pack rather than be a commuter dog.”
“Now they’re all now best buddies.”
“We’re so lucky to have our boys!”

I love this story! Kudos to them for rescuing. My daughter has a puppy mill sheltie and when she first got him that's how he would walk, in circles! It makes me want to shoot who ever has puppy mills! It is just heart breaking! He is slowly coming out of his shell. Thanks for this story.

Three lucky rescues & a lucky family, definitely! But I would like to mention, that to have three rescue dogs, all of whom have the potential for behavioral issues, get along, requires love, patience, and skill. Sounds like there is more than luck happening here. Rebecca & Little Miss Pudgy Paws
