• 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

Home Needed for Lada! (Or even a Foster in SF Bay Area)

You’ve seen her before. This is Lada!

Location: San Francisco Bay Area, CA

Lada has been in foster care with ForPaws Corgi Rescue for awhile in order to get past a stubborn urinary infection. Her previous owner was hit hard financially so her veterinary care was overdue. Ultimately she realized she just wasn’t able to keep Lada, which broke hearts on both sides!

Right now we really need a home, or even a foster home, for Lada ASAP. We recently had another foster dog in the same home rupture a disc in her back. She will require an extended period of care and crate rest and Lada is WAY too playful to have around while we’re trying to keep our patient quiet for the next couple of months.

Now this spunky girl is 100% healthy and ready to rock a new home! We’re on the hunt for the perfect place for her. She is a very affectionate girl, a velcro dog looking for Her Person.

A REALLY nice Cardigan Welsh Corgi with a textbook Cardi female personality, Lada loves to be Queen, but isn’t overwhelming about it. She gets along with other dogs, but will do best as an only dog, or with a male corgi who clearly understands that he is #2 in the pack order.

Lada is a pretty dog and has actually lost a little more weight than shown in these photos. She came in to foster care quite heavy and has done well on her diet.

She’s a lovely brown brindle girl. We were told she is somewhere between eight to ten years of age, but have a hard time believing it. We have no way of knowing her actual age. Our vet puts her around 7-8 years.

Lada is as active as any five to six year old dog, extremely playful and ready to go for a walk or ride in the car at all times. She’s been fully vetted, is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative for heartworm and fleas. A true corgi, she loves a good belly rub and isn’t hesitant to ask.

She also loves, loves, loves to play with a tennis ball!

Unlike many corgis, Lada will “fetch.” She wants you to continue to interact with her and throw the ball again. It is all about being a companion to her person for this dog.

We mean it when we say “active.” Lada also loves to swim and will hop in the pool the moment she’s invited.

She’s become quite good at the dry cycle too!  Just remember to step back while you watch!

And she can multi-task with the best of them, fetch while swimming!

We are looking for a corgi-experienced home with folks who understand what makes a happy Cardigan Welsh Corgi tick and time to spend with her during the day. This is a dog that prefers human companionship to that of other dogs. We can’t put her in a situation in which she will spend the majority of her hours at home alone during the day. An retired couple or someone who works from home would be ideal for her!

She would love to be an only dog, which has been her situation up to now. But she will adapt to sharing space with another submissive pack member. She will do best if she is allowed to be the alpha dog. She is confident, slightly pushy, but not difficult to manage for those who “get” the corgi temperament.

Lada has had some basic obedience training, is house trained, leash trained, crate trained. She has excellent house manners and can be left indoors without issues. She is gregarious, and while she’s affectionate toward all people, she’d be too much dog for a young child, as she likes to bounce, jump and run and would definitely want to take a ball away from a toddler. We’re looking for an all-adult home, or a home in which children are at minimum age 12 or older.

If you know anyone who might be interested, or who could fill in as a temporary foster person in the interim, please ask them to e-mail Kathy@ForPaws.org (Serious inquiries from corgi-experienced and knowledgeable parties located in the Bay Area only please.)

  1. Wow! She sounds like a great dog! You should be swamped with applications!

    As an aside, your comment about fetching surprises me. All 3 of my Cardis have been fantastic and natural fetchers/retrievers.

  2. She IS a great dog. I would keep her in a minute if I didn’t have another wonderful female Cardi in my household who would take serious exception to sharing her Queendom!
