I just saw the most heart tearing post on Craig's list!

FREE TO GOOD HOME!

Hi, My name is Joey and I am a four and half year old female, purebred, Pembroke Welsh Corgi with certified papers and a big heart...I have been living in the same house my entire life, but recently a newborn baby moved in and Im in need of a new home. My owners love me dearly but sometimes I get a little crazy around the baby and I think its time to settle down somewhere else where I can get a lot of love and attention. I dont get along with other animals and sometimes dont get along with small children but I am great around adults and kids that dont tug on my hair and ears. I would do best in a house with a yard, but I do just fine in small spaces too...I would make the perfect companion for someone in their later years or a great pal for someone/couple who needs a devoted and loving pet. I like to play and just lie around and watch tv with my owners. I am housebroken and do not have any destructive habits. I just need someone to love me and be my friend. If you could please be that someone email or call my uncle Josh at 970-313-7046. If I cant find a home soon, I'm afraid I'll be sent to live in the local pound, and I hear some dogs never get a second chance there. Please help me find a new home. Thank you.

Joey


I have posted this here so that anyone in the colorado area is looking for a corgi or knows someone who is, who apparently doesn't have any other animals can maybe save this poor baby from going to the pound!
I almost burst into tears when I read this.....

I just copied and pasted into an email to all my Corgi rescue contacts as an Urget Plea!

There are dvd's out there, as well, to help your dog get used to having a baby in the house. Hope both dogs find excellent fur-ever homes.

I would like to take her but can't if she can't get along with other Corgis. My 2 wouldn't mind her, but apparently she would not tolerate them. Sad story.

I realize you are all dog people, but I had to say goodbye to my forever cats when my first baby came along. He was very ill, and was diagnosed with severe and multiple allergies at six months, long before many will acknowledge that children can even develop allergies. He was severely ill, and after all these years he is still compromised, and the nurses in the clinic bring in their colleagues to see him, saying "oh, YOU're the one who..." A legend in his own clinic.

My point is, I loved those cats dearly. My forever cat had been with me thru high school, college, beyond, marriage, and my first child. But when it was a choice between a child and a pet, I let them go. I still miss them, 20 some years later. My work at the Humane Society has brought me back in contact with cats, and it's all coming back. So don't judge too harshly. We can't always know what is going on in someone else's home, and especially in someone else's heart.

I sent them an email with contact information for the local corgi rescue, and to contact me if they need any more help placing the dog. So I hope that I hear good news, I also just checked the Larimer County humane society, and there is a female corgi there, she has been there since the 8th. I want to help her too. Anyone in Larimer County Colorado feel free to contact me with ideas for these two girls!

I don't judge these people too harshly. It is hard just having a baby. Add things not working out with the dog and baby and especially people with their first baby, would be completely overwhelmed. Some people don't have the time or money to invest in further training on their dog and further baby proofing.
I think re-homing can be a responsible option. This person has a yard, they could have easily banished their corgi to the backyard for life, and continued living their indoor lives more-or-less without him. At least they're considering the dog's quality of life.

I used to be on a forwarded rescue list for a local rescuer, and she sent around a great e-mail that sort of turned the tables: "Free to good home. Two children. Quiet, well-behaved, love to run and play or snuggle on your lap. We used to have time for them before we got the dogs....."

I really understand that people feel they don't have time for a dog and a baby. But.... think of that before you get the dog.
