We have two corgi mixes that were both rescued from the local animal shelters. Cowboy was 2 when I adopted him. I must admit when I first walked through that pound I walked right past the little guy, never even noticed him, he was so far back in the kennel. When I finally did see him, it was love at first sight. He was so scared he clung to my leg and jumped at any little sound. The shelter assistant tod us he was skin and bones when he came in and it was evident that someone had been abusing him. How on earth anyone could abuse a defensless animal I'll never know... Needless to say, I took him home and he's been with me ever since! He's now 9 years old and you would never know he had a rough and awful start on life!
Luka is our other corgi mix and he was also 2 when we adopted him a year ago. He was very sick and didn't even look up while people were walking through the shelter and the other dogs were going insane. Didn't show any movement when people poked their hands into his cage trying to get him to do something. I planted myself right in front of his cage and talked to him softly and made little kissy noises. And when he opened that one little crystal blue eye, I knew I had to take him home!!! He was very sick and spent the first month getting better. He had kennel cough and numerous upper respiratory infections. But once he got better, he was a wild child!! He chewed everything in site, even chewed a hole in the drywall and a good portion of the couch before a good friend, rather sternly, told us it was our fault! Haha. We've since discovered dog parks and hiking is the only way to tame the beast so to speak.
Both our pups are wonderful companions and make us laugh and learn every day. As I'm sure everyone in this group knows, Rescued Dogs, are the Best Dogs!!

They are loyal to the bone! My Cosmo has been with me 5 years already. She was 7 when I saw her in the shelter. My boyfriend was looking for a cat, but I was pushing for a dog. Thank goodness this rat terrier mix was there!!! She stole our hearts with one look. I can't imagine the house without her little steps and tail wagging. We sure have lots of memories together. She is twelve right now, and healthy and happy. Nala, my one year corgi has became her inseparable companion.
