I live on the other side of Syracuse and, I agree, breeders are hard to come by for the area. If you're looking for a purebred, then you may want to look at the PWCCA website. You can search for breeders by state, and there are a couple that are within a 2 hour drive of Buffalo.
You might also want to consider having a pup shipped to you. There are many breeders who will arrange for a puppy to be flown to your nearest major airport. Our new puppy was shipped to us just this past Friday and we're so happy to have her! You have to be careful and choose a good breeder, though, so that you get a healthy and well-socialized puppy.
I know this is kind of a long drive but she is so darn cute.
Patty can you contact me? Colleen
Check out this breeder/rescue page for the Mayflower Corgi Club. They cover pretty much all of the northeast. We got our Max thru them as a rescue who was returned to his original breeder. We were so impressed with his temperament that we took another of their dogs (Heronsway) that she was retiring. My two are related.
