It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Grace - Home for the Holidays?

Grace is wishing for a new Forever Home 
for the Holidays!
Can you help?

Grace is a REALLY NICE 6-year-old Cardigan Welsh Corgi looking for a Great Home!
When her owners couldn't keep her, or afford the expensive surgery she needed to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her right rear leg, this dog came to the attention of ForPaws Corgi Rescue.

Ultimately Grace obtained support from the Cardigan Welsh Corgi National Rescue Trust, who financed the surgery she needed and through whom she is now seeking her Forever Home. 

Grace is a special needs dog, in that she requires a home without stairs, and will need a ramp* for any porch steps. She also needs to be kept warm for ease of movement so her joints don't stiffen - no staying outdoors on a cold day. She's a very sweet dog that is velcro to her owner and gets along well with other dogs, and all people. Ideally she'd be best in a home with someone present during the day. She is very companionable and wouldn't be happy being left alone all day long.

*Note: Rescuer has a ramp that is available to any adopter who needs it.

Grace will soon be posted on the CWCNRT website and we'll be putting a referral to that posting on our website, ForPaws Corgi Rescue. She is located in the San Francisco Bay area in California and we'd like to find a home within a day's driving distance.

Grace is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, heartworm negative, and on flea/heartworm preventative. She weighs about 33lbs and has a beautiful brown, brindle coat.

If you think you might be just the person Grace is looking for, please visit the Cardigan Welsh Corgi National Rescue Trust website:

A lovely Cardi girl, I know here people are out there and she will have them soon. Thanks for posting her to the world. Not everyone know about the rescue trust.

not often do you see a Cardi come through rescue... I'm sure she'll be snatched up in no time to go and live with a family who will adore her as she should be adored :) Best wishes, Grace!!!

Yes, this is a really "easy" girl. She's just plain sweet. Her former owners were really broken-hearted to lose her, but they were in a bad financial situation and couldn't afford to keep her or pay for the surgery she required.

She's a gem. Already obedience trained, house trained, bonds almost doesn't get better than this in a rescue dog!

We are Maltese dogs, but LoLLy is a rescue, and we know how wonderful rescues are and how wonderful the people who HELP rescues are. So we just wanted to say thank you for all you do and what a beautiful girl some very lucky humans will get to live with her! Love, Your PaLs, LuLu and LoLLy.
