I don't do Rescue Anymore.....

I don't do rescue anymore.
I don't do rescue anymore.
I don't do rescue anymore.

I have been telling myself that for a week.

But it's a corgi.

I couldn't help myself. The people were desperate. I couldn't fathom the thought of this cute little corgi sitting in a shelter, or being given away to just anyone.

So I did up a handy little surrender form, and he was dropped off last night.

Why did they give him up you ask? Well, they are getting a divorce. I mean, c'mon. It's a perfectly valid reason to give your dog away. Ugh.

Robbie is 17 months old and is the product of their own "breeding." Sigh. They currently still own his father. He is a CKC registered Pembroke Welsh Corgi, although not one dog in his pedigree has any sort of title....

Robbie is a cute little fella- with big ears, and pointy face. He is a tri- very black- with not a lot of white. Robby is also very fat. He needs to lose probably 7lbs or so. Which is a lot when you are 13 inches tall.

Despite being uprooted he is wonderful. He adores people and is very happy, happy, happy. He is snuggly, and affectionate (even after just a few hours of knowing me) He is great in the house- has not had one accident and settled right down in a crate at bed time. He is pretty perfect so far.

He and the girls are best buds. Pixel especially thinks he's pretty cool and they've been playing all morning. Wicca and Robbie have been pretty flirty- but Robbie is very appropriate, and backs off when Wicca says. Vito told him off once, and Robbie has avoided him like the plague since. And Robbie and Boone completely ignore each other. He's a pretty dogsmart little dude.

Robbie is good with cats, and didn't even wag his tail at the store cat- just walked on by.

He is quite playful and I caught him carrying around a stuffed toy outside this morning- happy as can be, his little stump wagging like crazy.

Oh, and he hasn't barked. Not once. Strange eh? My dogs will teach him how to be a real corgi in no time. :o)

Robbie would do well in just about any kind of home- he is a great little dog, and would be a fantastic addition to any family!

Robbie is neutered, vaccinated, and is ready for his forever home. If you are interested, or would like more information please don't hesitate to email me! (

Isn't he cute? I am sure I'll be able to find him a great home in no time....well, at least I am hoping that is the case!

Very cute! I hope Sadie doesn't disfigure him and lessen his chances of adoption this weekend! lol!

You're one of the good guys, Amanda. Here's hoping you find him the perfect home -- very soon.

I actually fell in love with him when I first saw him peaking out of the crate last night...after that I couldn't look at him or I would have cried!..poor guy, hope he finds a home to love him soon! For now he's in the best place!

I still am wishing a could have taken him :( But I m glad he's with you and will find a great home. Thanks for taking him Amanda!

Awwww he is adorable! What a face! He will have a home toot sweet!

I am in the same place you are. I keep saying NO MORE FOSTERS (our city animal code will not allow me to have more than 4 dogs - a foster puts me over and I risk seriously pissing my neighbors off). But I know that the right BC will pop up that needs a foster home and we will take them. You cant resist their adorable faces!

Oh, I'm in love!
This is exactly what our two tri's look like. He looks like a happy little fella. Oh, if only I lived near you, I'd take him in a minute! You're just the best dog mama.

Fostering is so rewarding though, especially when they find just the right home. He looks like a sweetheart. Who could turn down a face like that? :)

Holly said...

Good for you Amanda! The right home for Robbie will be here before you know it. He is a handsome chap.

Amanda, it seems to me that he would fit in very well with you and your pack. He is very sweet
