Meet Andy – a sweet 11-year-old male Pembroke Welsh Corgi who has been lost in Connecticut since January 1, 2012.
On New Year’s Eve his family traveled from Massachusetts to visit friends in CT. Andy got spooked by the fireworks and bolted. He has been missing ever since.
The complete story, including more pictures and up-to-date news of sightings in the area are on the blog entitled Bring Andy Home.
If you live in the area, please be on the lookout and do all you can to help find him!

Last week I put a dog bed right outside my office door. From here Sage can watch me, and keep an eye on the rest of the house. Obviously I found the sweet spot because Sage is using this bed a lot more often now. This is what I see when I turn from my desk…awww!

Every year ForPaws Corgi Rescue receives numerous Christmas cards from the owners of dogs we’ve placed in new homes. They always remind us that each of these homes has been an incredible gift for the dog involved. There’s nothing better for a rescuer than seeing these dogs go from rags to riches.
One of the most extreme stories is that of Scooter, an incredibly sweet male Pembroke whose owners said they “couldn’t do a thing with him” (couldn’t get him to respond to their commands) and ended up leaving him outside 24/7 for an extended period of time. Ultimately they took him to a shelter where the rescue coordinator knew that he needed someone who “got corgis” and contacted ForPaws.
By that time Scooter had gained an incredible amount of weight, due to the poor quality food and lack of exercise. The muscles in his rear legs had atrophied. Evidently he just sat on the porch step all day, asking to be let into the house. His regular veterinary maintenance had been sadly neglected for quite some time. He was in need of intensive care.
Over an extended period Scooter lost weight and regained his health. By the time he found his new home he was well on his way to being the dog he was meant to be. His new parents made the eight-hour-drive from Southern California to get him and it was love at first sight for all involved. Scooter’s new home could not have been more perfect for him!
Recently we got a Christmas card with this photo of Scooter.
Honestly, I wouldn’t have recognized him! He’s gone on to lose more weight and his multiple daily walks have re-established his muscle tone and aerobic fitness. Oh…and the report of “not being able to do a thing with him” couldn’t have been more wrong. This sweet dog will do anything to please and adores everyone he meets!
For Scooter it couldn’t have been a better holiday season!
Thank you to his new parents and all those involved who made it possible for Scooter to have the home of his dreams!
