Hi Corgi Lovers -
My husband and I are looking to adopt or buy an adult corgi (male or female). I have had a very difficult time searching. We would be overjoyed to bring a healthy happy corgi into our family. If anyone has any suggestions or knows of any available dogs, I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know. We're in Washington, DC but would travel quite a bit to bring one home. Thank you!
You didn't say how far you're willing to travel, but here is one:
The Corgi Connection Of Kansas has a number of wonderful dogs up for adoption. I really love what they do. I know it is far from from you but you would be amazed at the mountains they move to get their dogs into good home. Good luck!
I have frequently seen adult Corgis on petfinder.com, may at least be worth a look! Good luck!
Hi Laura, here's 2 in FL, owner passed away, just listed one hour ago.
There was also a very cute Pembroke corgi (7 mos) near Boise Idaho posted on the daily corgi yesterday under the Wednesday adoptables...
A pemmie with a tail!
You could try contacting local breeders
Pembroke - http://www.pembrokecorgi.org/memberlist.cfm
and asking if anyone has a retired show dog needing a forever home. A lot of the breeders I know often have older dogs that need a home, or if they don't have one, they know of another breeder who does. Good luck in your search!

Have you tried talking to Secondhand Hounds in MN? ( http://secondhandhounds.org/ ). Their herding dog coordinator Anitra Francis usually has corgis available for adoption all the time.
I second the idea of contacting breeders for retired adults or show dogs who did not pan out. I know that in a handful of areas, Corgis are common in rescue. But where I am, they are virtually non-existent. I check petfinder regularly (so I can contact breed rescue if anyone shows up in a kill shelter) and I've seen maybe 2 or 3 mill rescues. All the rest are mixes, and most of those don't look like there is any Corgi in there at all. Once in a blue moon a senior shows up when an owner has, sadly, passed away.
Good luck in your hunt.
Great news! We found our perfect match. A 7-year-old retiring obedience dog named Megan. She's wonderful. Thanks all for the tips and support! We bring her home July 1st.
