First off, I want to thank everyone for their support and advice, it really helped to know that everyone went through the same thing. this is another long one but i hope you read it because i could still use some support! Ravioli did better yesterday after my first post and he seems like he's opening up to us a little bit. he seems to be eating normally now whenever i give him food and isn't as mopey--he seems to explore more when we're just sitting on the couch instead of laying around like…

let me first preface this by saying that this post will be long, but i ask that you please read because i really need some support from the community. please!!!

Ravioli came home saturday evening, and he seemed pretty ok with us (my boyfriend and i). we brought him back to the apartment and he explored a lot. the breeder said he hadn't used the bathroom all day (which was from before 9am to 630pm when we got him). we took him out a couple times that night and he still never went to…

I have been reading your posts about your search for a puppy. Don't be in such a rush.  I know it is exciting, but it is a 15 year commitment and you want to be sure to make the right decision.  My breeder only breeds a dog if she wants to keep a puppy for herself.  That means she only breeds every 1 1/2 years or so.  You have to be patient. The right dog is worth the wait.

I noticed John Wolff wrote some excellent advice to you.  Slow down.  Do your research.  He is so right.  READ everything you can about the care and training of the pup.  Also, read what the breeders are looking for and how to be sure you have a reputable breeder.

The breeder I choose is in Iowa, too far for you.  I found her thru the PWCCA. When I first tried to contact her, I wrote E-mails.  Turns out she does not answer E-mails of people looking for puppies.  She wants to judge your personality.  Phone calls were OK, but she also wanted to meet my husband and I in person.  That was great because I wanted to meet her, see her dogs, and check that it was not a puppy mill set up.  

When I went to see her I was very happy with the conditions.  ALL the dogs lived in the house.  There was NO kennel.  The puppies socialized with lots of people and other dogs in their family.  Grandpa & Grandma Corgi were teaching the pups appropriate dog behavior at just a few weeks old.

The breeder interviewed me, too.  She explained all her requirements.  The dogs must be neutered.  They must have a fenced in yard.  If any problem arises, the dog must be returned to her and not given to a friend, etc.  The puppy must be at least 10 weeks old before it goes home.  (Mine was 11  1/2 weeks old.)  The list goes on and on. I did not get to "pick" my puppy.  She picked the pup by matching the personality of the puppy and me.  She has a lot of rules, but I trust her.  She KNOWS what she is doing.

At our first meeting, I brought pictures of my previous dogs.  I brought pictures of my home with the fenced in yard.  I even brought a letter from my vet stating that I was a good dog parent.  You must remember a good breeder wants to be sure the puppies are going to best possible homes.

At my first visit to my breeder there was another woman looking at the pups.  She had NOT done her reading and made some obvious mistakes.  She insisted she wanted 2 pups from the same litter.  The breeder explained that is not a good situation and she will never place 2 pups from the same litter with a family.  I KNEW that because I had done my research.  That woman did not get a puppy.  I got my puppy. Then a few months later when a 2 year old male was returned because of the owner's death, the breeder contacted me and gave him to me.  I now have these 2 wonderful Corgis in my life.

I hope you find a great breeder who cares about the breed and not the money.  I hope you get a wonderful puppy, but be sure YOU are ready to be a wonderful parent.
