• It’s not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

  • Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

    It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..." _Hermann Hesse

Did you say 20 Corgis!

During the past few weeks ForPaws Corgi Rescue, as well as a myriad of other corgi rescuers in California and Arizona, has been working on a situation in which an individual in central California was found to have twenty (Yes 20!) purebred Pembroke Welsh Corgis in her possession. The ordinance allows you to keep four dogs in this county.

Due to a speedy response and an awesome “stepping up” on the part of many Corgi rescue folks, all of these dogs will be safely rescued, properly vetted, and carefully evaluated and matched with the proper homes. The first eight left the shelter at the end of January. Then headed to Southern California and Arizona. Below is a photo of those dogs.

Do you think they’re related? You bet’cha they are! The original four dogs were allowed to breed, not intentionally, but without being spayed and neutered, the result is pretty predictable. Sixteen dogs later, the local animal control authorities were tuned in. We’ve been working with them to get all of these dogs to knowledgeable Corgi Rescuers. As of tomorrow, the remaining eight are headed up here to N. California where ForPaws Corgi Rescue and the local chapter of the PWCCA will collaborate (a first) to foster and place all of these dogs.

The original four dogs have now been spayed/neutered and will remain with the owner. All of the dogs we’re about to see will be young. We anticipate that most will be age 2-3 years at most, and there may be some young puppies in the mix. All are lacking in socialization, but the S. California rescuers report that those that they took previously are coming out of their shells nicely.

As a central communicator for this effort, I would like to personally thank all of you that have worked to cover this situation. Your quick and professional response spoke volumes. The good work that so many of you have done for so many years on behalf of Corgi Rescue has not gone unnoticed!

If the readers out there could send some good wishes for all of these dogs, that would be appreciated. They’re about to experience a life-changing experience – they are very lucky indeed!
