And then there were 3 - CORGIS Update!

Just a quick update to let you know how Katie and Jack, my rescues, are coming along.  Jack, the 2 year old tri son, is just "Happy Jack"...he is a clown and runs and plays and is completely house broken now.  He has attached him self to me and is coming along great with hubby, grandma, son, etc.  I actually love his long tail and it helps me find him if he is in the garden!


Katie is recovering well from her injuries.  She is 3 going on 4 and a tan and white.  For those that haven't followed, Katie was attacted by something large and had many severe injuries, punctures on her lower back.  The previous owner did nothing until she was so sick from infection took her to a vet.  She also had maggots and they had to trim away dead skin from her back almost halfway up.  At least the owner was kind enough to contact Corgi rescue and I saw it on the wheelcorgi site (I have a 10 year old Emma with DM and in a cart outside)  Her back was raw and awfull looking when I got her and my vet did 6 cold lazer treatments and I did water treatments and her fur is growing back at a wonderful rate.  She is very sweet but oh so skiddish!  I wonder what happened to her from her 2 previous owners.  Only now am I and only I, able to pick her up and sit with her (she falls asleep from the petting) and she sleeps in bed cuddled up to me.  I want my elderly mom to have her for a time, but I am not sure how this will work.  I may have to wait til mom has her hip replacment as the cane she uses scares Katie to death.  Again makes me wonder what happened to her.


Any words of advise about this skiddishness would be appreciated, I know time and love will make the difference.  Even tho it is alot of work, esp for me having RA and such, I am sure glad I did I encourage anyone out there to think about rescues when adding to their families!!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes and "gifts"...we are off today for vaccine boosters (never had been vaccinated!) and I going to try some of the Herbsmiths Calm and the cane idea.  Katie doesn't like people moving towards her (I guess its a threat) and turns and runs.  Mom with the cane is worse.  She will be having hip replacement in August so maybe that will help.  Best wishes and Corgi kisses to all!


Nancy, Kate, Jack & Emma

That is so sweet that you took them in!  With my rescue we also wondered what happened to her.  Time will be the best healer, but I found Herbsmiths Calm Shen for Sally and it has done wonders!!  She goes up to people and is happy, even when I take her to work, there is a guy with a cane that she will now let pet her!!  I had her on it for 2 months and thought maybe she had learned not to fear so didn't buy more...what a mistake!  After just a week we wondered what was wrong with her, I ordered some more and she is doing sooo good again!!!!  I highly recommend it!  Here is a link, but I have found it cheaper on Amazon

Thanks for helping these poor dogs and I agree with Ellen if you could have a 2nd cane sitting around and when she gets used to that occasionally knock it over and walk with it so she can get used to the noises. Good luck and I'm glad things are going well. She may always be a bit more skiddish .

Hi Nancy, give it time, it takes about a month for a new dog to let loose, like you said, a lil TLC :)

No advice but a big thank you for taking these very lucky pooches in.  Hmmm....with the cane,

over a bit of time I imagine she will get used to it.  Is there a second one you could use as a prop around her....just have it laying around so she can get used to it and approach it on her terms?  Perhaps walk around with it some like it's no big deal and just part of the scenery, praising her constantly when she doesn't shy away?  I shudder to think of what her previous life was like. 

Thank you've made a world of difference to these two dogs.

Glad Katie and Jack found an awesome loving home with you and Emma.  Glad to hear Katie is recovering from her injuries, poor girl. We just rescued a red and white pem (Tucker), 3 months ago June 6th.  So happy we have him.
