I too have added a "mature" corgi to my crew. He is a blue merle cardigan corgi that came to our program in June. This boy came with a multitude of medical issues. He was drastically underweight, suffered major hair loss, stunk to high heavens, had a broken tail, had bilateral eye and ear infections and most crippling arthritis. He is missing part of an ear, is quite visually impaired and totally deaf. In spite of it all he has a spark in his hazy blue eyes and seemed thankful to know he had a regular meal coming and a place to lay his tired bones. He was so involved and I didnt know that he would ever be ready to adopt. Somehow I knew that he really wanted a chance at life so we decided to give him a chance to regain his health. Soon we named him Zen. He seemed at peace with the world, tolerant to all that crossed his path. We learned that he also had a thyroid condition. X-rays showed arthritis most everywhere and a broken tail that had never been tended to. He slowly grew a new coat, gained some weight and had life to his eyes. Being deaf has not caused him much issue as we gently touch him and he awakens and now knows the routine. He relies on the other dogs frequently. We dont know his age in years but surely he has many hard miles on his well used body.
