13 yr old ~ Male ~ Corgi ~ 35 lbs ~ Adoption Pending
This feisty, joyful, beloved senior boy came into rescue, along with his fur brother Dale, when his elderly parents were suddenly unable to care for him and other family members couldn’t bring him into their existing pack.
Update April 11, 2020:
It’s an understatement to say we love all our Corgis and Corgi mixes, but the love we have for our seniors pulls at the heartstrings the most. A few weeks ago we were happy to report that our boys Chip and Dale were heading off for their trial adoption. Today, we’re thrilled to share that the trial adoption was a success, and these two officially have their forever home!
Congratulations, Chip and Dale – we wish you and your new Mom and Dad the happiest life together. We love you always!
Update March 23, 2020:
These are strange times for everyone, but our work in rescue continues! Yesterday, our wonderful volunteers came together (from a very safe distance, mind you) to ensure that our beautiful senior boys, Chip and Dale, could safely make their way to their forever home. They have begun their trial adoption with a family that opened their hearts to keeping the boys together. We hope to be able to make the adoption official for Chip and Dale in a few weeks!
Personality & Behaviors:
Chip’s ideal day would be spent adoring his humans and being adored in return. He is a senior pup who enjoys his sleep and is in no rush to get where he wants to go most of the time, but he is still a corgi. He loves romping outside and when a burst of energy strikes, playing chase while barking joyously when his human runs with his squeaky toy. He can also nip/bite in the excitement of play.
While he is not an insistent barker by any means, he likes to communicate with his humans. He barks when he is happy and playing, when he sees or hears something outside, or when he thinks it is time to get up. And, of course, there is a lot of barking and wagging when his humans return home.
Chip is housebroken and knows sit, lie down, and come. He walks well on leash and does well in the car, but his rides have not ventured beyond the vets office. He is not crate trained, but is used to being gated off in a room while his humans are gone.
- Up-to-date on vaccinations
- Teeth cleaned and multiple extractions in 2019
- Some arthritis
- Still needs to lose weight
Chip adores his humans and everyone loves him. He is excited to meet strangers, whether they are friends, teenagers, the vet, pest control, AC, or handy man. He has shown defensive/aggressive behaviors towards other dogs including a few scuffles with his brother Dale, so he need to be on a short leash when encountering other dogs on walks and at the vets office. He has shown some guarding tendency with other dogs when food is involved. He has not been cat tested.
Chip is a low energy pup who would do best as an only dog in a household with no kids where he can spend most of the day relaxed, basking in the love his human(s) while he licks their feet. Adoption fee is $125.
