Hello everyone! I haven't used this site in way too long. I was thinking about it and decided to log in after literally years! I hope everyone is well.We have had an exciting and difficult few years. We moved to a remote location in Northern Canada and I teach and we rescue stray dogs as well. That alone is a full time job but that is another story!Mickey has IVDD and is now in a wheelchair. I just wanted to update and let you know how AMAZING he has done. He is such a good boy! 7 and a half…See More

Hi Justine, thank you for the offer to help. I actually have worked with and trained (and continue to work with) rescue dogs through volunteer experience and now for the past two years through school. The rescues in our program are often very fearful and we put hours of obedience training and socialization into them each week with both one on one and group training. With my current lifestyle and Franklin's personality, I am just not wanting to put the time into a dog that even with significant training I don't think will ever be suitable for my lifestyle. Truck was just such an anxious, fearful dog, but he was also a couch potato and just couldn't keep up to even close to our normal routine. I found him an excellent home with a quiet owner who works from home and has no other pets and doesn't do more than a couple walks a week. I have a feeling this is going to be a much better situation for Truck. He just doesn't like the hustle and bustle of a busy active lifestyle (which I am coming to find is why the original owners re-homed him in the first place) and he is aggressive towards large dogs and reacts with aggression to situations that make him uncomfortable. Not something I want in a dog, I would rather work with an overly active, untrained dog, than a dog that is mellow and fearful.
Hi Justine, I would be interested to foster a corgi from the puppy mill. My only concern is their health as they seem to be in such a bad condition. I'm sure Layla would enjoy a new friend in her life. Corgis seem a lot happier with a companion.
Thank you Justine for your nice comments! :) Layla's breeder is Eliseberg but she no longer breeds corgis only german shepherds. As far as I can remember my dream was to get a corgi but I never thought the bond would be so strong. She's the light of my life.` Your corgis are absolutely gorgeous! I'm not 100% vegan as I still eat fish but I eat raw as much as I can and I am in a better shape now than I was in my twenties.
Hi Justine! Sorry it took me a while to reply... I've been busy with midterms (It’s finally over!). Mia has been doing great. She LOVES the snow :D Next snow storm I will take a video of her hehe she looks like a real bunny hopping! Supper cute! How are your boys doing? I can’t wait for it to be nice outside so we can have another corgi get-together!
