Briggs

AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION — 4/5 year old, male

MEET BRIGGS

Briggs (aka Fluffy Butt) is a young, handsome active boy looking forward to living his best corgi life as the devoted 24/7 companion to his human(s). His ideal furever home would include an active, but patient work-from-home or stay-at-home human who is equally devoted to their BBB (best buddy Briggs).



PERSONALITY & BEHAVIORS

Briggs’ has a long and passionate list of favorite things. He LOVES — people, food, playing soccer, taking long walks, playing fetch, riding in the car, dog ice cream, playing tug of war, swimming when he gets the chance, running around the yard, receiving treats, playing fetch (yeah, it’s worth repeating)… When it comes time to relax, Briggs loves to cuddle on the couch and keeping his human’s feet warm while they work at their desk.

And… This boy doesn’t have any bad habits. He doesn’t mark, nip heels, bark incessantly, dig, chew none toy items, or jump fences. 🙂

Briggs’ dislikes are few. Fortunately, most can be addressed or lessened over time with patient and persistent training. Briggs dislikes fireworks and gun fire and will go to his safe space (his crate) when he hears it. He hates having his feet or butt touched. He dislikes sharing his food with anyone or his humans with other dogs, so he needs to continue work on his resource guarding. And, while he has made friends with other dogs, he tends to be reactive when encountering unknown dogs.

TRAINING

Briggs needs to continue behavior modification training. He has been working hard on being able to maintain his focus with his foster Mom. He is stubborn and needs to burn off some excess energy first, but once his trust is earned, he makes great strides. He is housebroken, crate trained, walks well on a leash when not encountering strange dogs. He also knows “sit”, “come”, “off”, “down”, “up”, “bed”.

SOCIALIZATION

He loves people, especially “his” humans. But he is still in need of work for his resource guarding and socialization. With slow patient introductions he has done well interacting and playing with his foster family’s cat, a family member’s larger and older dog, and visiting older children.

April 22, 2022: Welcome Briggs!

Who has room for another dog? We do. Always.

Say hello to our newest newbie, Briggs. He joins us as an owner surrender due to aggression with other dogs in the household and will be the one and only in his new foster home. We’ll be working with Briggs on his training and socialization needs, but healthcare is also a priority. He will be visiting the vet soon to get caught up on a routine visit and in the meantime working on a healthy diet and exercise. Briggs is overweight so we need to help him shed several pounds to become his best corgi self.

Welcome to the family, Briggs!
