I don't know how many of you remember that I rescued two Corgis on Mothers Day 2011...I was losing my Emma Anne to DM and was heart broken and God answered with showing me this Corgi rescue here in VA close by. Katie (her name before was K9!!!) had been attacked by a large animal and almost died from infection/maggots since her former owner did not take he to the Vet til the last moment...her son Jack (formerly Prince Arthur) was OK but obviously negelected. Both these Corgis were scared to death and we had an uphill job to help them heal and become REAL Corgis! Jack came around first altho he is still petrified of crumpling bags, ripping alum foil and scarey noises like that and gets nervous with thunder and gunshots (they lived outside in a run...such an awful life!)...Katie would hide all the time and after awhile would only come to me after I chased her around for a while. They both were afraid when my son would come home (being 6'plus and a typical loud 26 year old!), they would hide in the closet...again Jack came around, but we never see Katie if Eric was around. Well here is the good news!!!
This past week he and DIL came over to watch Bears/Packers game....Katie actually came out in the family room and GOT ON THE SOFA with me and him!!!! Hooray for small miracles!
And since they were never socialized and Kate esp is afraid of everyone, when I can I take her to events...she's been fine at friends houses, just hangs around me....Tonite was the BIG test...I took them both with me to hubby's hunt club for the family picnic and she not only didn't hide, she let KIDS pet her and give her treats!!! SUCCESS!!!
So I guess the point to all this is for those of you that have rescued a Corgi that is shy, scared, nervous....just be patient, give them room and LOTS OF LOVE!!!! It does work out, and I am so happy for it!
Wish I had my camera for pics...they were so cute sitting together looking at all these ppl:)
