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

ForPaws Helps Corgis and Corgi Mixes

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..."

Waiting for Morgan gets Bigger...and Bigger...!

Still no puppies, but one big mama dog! Sorry Morgan, but this is definitely the LAST time you'll be going through this!

When the puppies are born we will be posting information about the them on the ForPaws Corgi Rescue website, as well as on this blog.

Complete information regarding our adoption procedures can be found on our website. Anyone seriously interested must submit an application as a first step in the process. However we will not even begin to review applications until the puppies are born and we see how many we have.

We will be evaluating the puppies as they develop during their first 8-10 weeks of life and matching each to a home that represents the best possible circumstance for the individual dog. All puppies will be adopted on a spay/neuter deposit contract and are likely to be available to their new homes around 10 weeks of age.

Previous successful experience in raising/training a corgi puppy is certainly a plus, but each application will be carefully reviewed against the personality and temperament of each individual dog. Finding the absolute best situation that we possibly can for each puppy is the number one priority.

These dogs live to be 12-15 years old very easily and taking a puppy is a big commitment. We're hoping to find wonderful "forever homes" for all of these dogs and will be screening very carefully. That process will take some time. History has shown that we typically get about 10-12 applications for every puppy available.

And, don't forget that Mama Morgan will need a good home too. She's a very nice dog and someone will be extremely lucky to get her!

More soon!
