AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION, 8 yr old, bonded corgi/terrier mixes
Henry and Scarlett are an adorable pair of corgi/terrier mix seniors. They are absolutely devoted to each other. We would like to see their dream of finding their forever home come true, but they have a unique situation. They are looking for a very special home with someone who is willing to adopt Henry and become the forever foster of Scarlett.
Southeast Corgi Rescue would like Scarlett to remain a part of rescue as a forever foster with Henry’s new family, because Scarlett has heart valve issues. We want to ensure she gets the medical care and monthly medications she needs. So, who ever adopts Henry would also need to become Scarlett’s forever foster — someone to love and care for her, while SECR continues to be financially responsible for her medical care. In this situation there is a $125 adoption fee for Henry and no adoption fee for Scarlett.
PERSONALITY & BEHAVIORS
These two cuties enjoy a low-key lifestyle. They would probably do best with a retired individual or couple as they are homebodies and like a set routine particularly when it comes to meals. They love grooming each other, hanging with their people, taking leisurely walks, getting head pats and scratches, and of course treats. While Scarlett is more the curious leader and can be a bit reactive towards other dogs, Henry is more reserved and timid, but can get a little grumpy when startled or anxious in a new situations.
Scarlett and Henry came into rescue when their owner, who was elderly, passed away. They are velcro dogs and want to be with their human(s) as much as possible. While both are people friendly and they enjoy receiving attention and pats from adults and older children, they aren’t interested in playing with toys or being messed with. Cats are ignored, while other dogs are ignored, barked at, or occasionally (with Scarlett) aggressively pursued. Though she does respond well to distraction training.
These two are food motivated and can be quickly trained. They walk well on leash and know “sit, come, out of the kitchen, wait/stay, potty, and leave it.”

July 7 2021: Welcome Scarlett O’Hara and Henry Fonda to SECR!
Please join us on the red carpet to welcome SECR’s newest star-studded duo, Scarlett O’Hara and Henry Fonda!
Scarlett and Henry are bonded 8-year-old Norfolk Terrier/Corgi mixes who join us following a shelter pull, where they were surrendered as part of a group of 10 dogs and 6 birds. Both pups came to us with a number of issues we are currently treating to put them on the road to wellness.
Both Scarlett and Henry need help with a healthy diet, with Scarlett being the most overweight and struggling a bit with breathing and mobility (even a short walk is a lot to tackle right now) because of it. They are both currently taking Metronidazole for stomach upset – Henry’s the result of Colitis – and Scarlett is also on antibiotics for irritation on her rear end due to a few too many fat folds. Skin irritation from allergies or possible flea exposure in their previous home is also an issue for both Henry and Scarlett, which we hope to see improve as we begin to transition them to a healthier dry food with fish. A dental cleaning and, for Scarlett, an extraction, are also in these pups’ future.
Henry and Scarlett (and their foster) are dealing with a lot, but they aren’t letting temporary health setbacks get them down. They have a sweet temperment, crave all the human attention they can get, and rely on eachother for comfort. Scarlett and Henry do literally everything together and one won’t even eat or take a (currently short) walk without the other.
We’ll share more about this bonded pair as soon as we know more about them, but for now getting them settled and their immediate health issues taken care of is a top priority.
Welcome to the family, Scarlett and Henry! We’ll all be lining up for your autographs and a selfie as soon as you’re both up to it!
