8 years old, in foster

December 29, 2021: Welcome Oakley!

Please help us give a warm welcome to our newest SECR newbie, Oakley!

Oakley joins us as an owner surrender due to aggressive behavior towards a young child. His parents did everything they could to help Oakley, including working with a trainer. However, many corgis with strong herding instincts have difficulty adjusting to living with small children and the stress of the situation was too much for Oakley to handle. His parents made the difficult decision to surrender him to rescue so that he could live happily in a child-free home, and we are glad to be able to take him into our care.

Oakley has some anxiety around other dogs as well stemming from an attack a couple of years ago, so he will also be living in an only-dog foster home while we work with him on his training and socialization needs. First on Oakley’s to-do list, though, is surgery to repair a torn ligament in one of his hind legs – a recent playtime injury. He’ll need some recovery time after the procedure, but should be back to the regularly scheduled walks and games of fetch that we’re told he loves!

Welcome to the family, Oakley!
