Profile Information

Born Phoenixville, PA-Live in Washington DC, Emma was born in Boston 'burbs
About Me:
I adopted Emma Sep. 6, 2008 through Cardigan Corgi Rescue. I am 43 years old, single. Live in Logan Circle Washington DC. Owned a Cardi/German Sheppard mix who died on July 30, 2008 after 17 years. I was devastated. I applied on line for a Cardi rescue a few weeks later, in mid-August, thinking it would take months to be matched with an available corgi, and got a call the next day. Three weeks later I drove to a town next to Framingham Mass and met Emma. She came home with me the next day.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Emma is a beautiful Cardigan, black and white with brindle (on her face, and legs). She is playful, loving and kind and doesn't have a mean bone in her body. She demands and commands attention.

She has alot of playful energy and I think I may need to adopt a second Corgi in the next year so she has company when I am out during the day. Emma sleeps in bed with me and loves to put her head on the pillow next to me just like a person.

Downsides of Emma, she sheds like crazy, though I am accustomed to this having had a dog for so many years who shed as well. But I am forever shaking dog hair out of the bed. And Emma will chew anything even if she only has a few minutes while I am in the shower or in another room. Including holes in walls, the side of a mattress (and I mean a side)...and any sock that hits the floor is fair game.

Emma's first owner in Mass apparently owned 10 dogs and was forced by the county to give up 6 of 10 dogs. The same thing had happened a year earlier with a different group of pure-bred dogs she owned. But before this "collector" gave this batch up, she apparently cut their vocal cords so they wouldn't bother neighbors (the dogs all lived outside by day and in crates in a garage by night). Emma can still bark, so it must not have been done correctly, but it is definitely a raspy "Brenda Vacarro" type of bark. I have grown to love it. She has entire conversations with me in her very low and raspy way. I had never heard of cutting a dog's vocal cords and it seems completely insane and a horrible thing to do. Especially to such a sweet dog. Emma apparently did not like the crate she was in, because our vet noticed at her first visit that her two canine teeth were worn in a very rounded shape, identical on both teeth, as if she was trying to chew her way through something.

After Emma was given up to the Cardi Rescue, she lived close-by in Massachusetts with a loving foster family. She was very shy at first when I picked her up, and she was overwhelmed by the journey to DC, but adapted quickly.

Hi, Bruce and Emma! Emma is a beautiful girl -- I love her profile picture! I was very sad to read of her vocal cords...sounds horribly barbaric and cruel! How lucky she is that you found her.
