~5-year-old cowboy corgi, adopted by fosters

August 20, 2022: Congratulations Apollo!

Please join us in celebrating Apollo!

This sweet cowboy corgi joined us in the early Spring as a shelter pull and had a big challenge in front of him: learning to go from the “stray life” to a loved and cherished member of a family. It’s no surprise that he caught on quickly. Apollo breezed through routine veterinary care, a dental, and treatment for intestinal worms and checked off the most important tasks on his to do list: working his way into the hearts of his foster parents and his once very skeptical, older and wiser foster brother, Pippin.

With their guidance Apollo found his favorite spot in the house (the couch), the yard (anywhere he could keep and eye the neighboring piggies on the opposite side of the fence), and on the go (parks and trails for exploring), and realized that family life is the best kind of life there is. Lucky for Apollo – and us – his fosters are in it for the long haul and the family life he’s recently discovered is the one he’ll have forever. Apollo has officially been adopted by his fosters and we’re so happy we could bring them together.


March 12, 2022: Welcome Apollo!

Please put your paws together for SECR’s newest newbie, Apollo!

Apollo is a 5-year-old cowboy corgi that we rescued as a shelter pull, where he was surrendered by a good samaritan who found him as a stray. We’ve gotten Apollo caught up on some much needed veterinary care, including a neuter, dental cleaning, and treatment for intestinal worms – a common condition among strays that may have spent a lot of time outdoors. We’ve also gotten Apollo up to date on monthly heartworm, flea, and tick prevention. He is settling in to his new foster home this weekend with some help from his older and wiser corgi foster brother, Pippin. We’ll be working with him to ensure he gets the training and socialization he needs, focusing first on ensuring that he grows comfortable with being an indoor dog with a family.

Welcome to SECR, Apollo. We are so happy to have you with us!
