Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah that is ridiculously adorable.

I have a 1 yr old Corgi, Roscoe. They are tons of fun - lots of energy, smart little guys. She looks like she'll fit right in.

Don't all those corgi's look alike? This is Roscoe.

Re: our newest addition!

Corgi's have always been a favorite dog breed of mine. My family raised AKC rough coated Collies, but at the dog shows I was always drawn to the Corgi's section. Like the Collies, Corgis are very personable and friendly, I also liked their smaller size and lack of grooming (brushing) needs. I usually prefer dogs to be "dog sized", and I think Corgi is the smallest breed I would go...first choice would probably be a Rhodie. (rhodesian ridgeback)

Hard to believe she would have been PTS. I always thought there was always a market for the "pet" purebreds...? I'm glad she found you so she could have a great life.

Re: our newest addition!

ya know thats what my mom and i talked about, that the breeder would still be able to find homes for these little guys. however, she told my mom that the father dog had been producing a "bad line" several other pups out of this father had things wrong, blind or no hearing, so she said they were going to stop using that male dog for breeding. but i think she did try hard to find them homes instead of putting them down.

Re: our newest addition!

She's so cute, she almost looks like a stuffed plush doggie! It's great she's settling in so well.


She was going to be PTS because she's "not regulation size" What?!
