May's Story...
May is an adorable young girl full of spunk and super affectionate. She loves to meet new people and wants to say "hello" to everyone who walks by her. She is currently learning her basic obedience and is learning to be a loving member of the family. May came to us from an owner who was unable to care for her any longer. She is just over a year old and now ready to find her new home. She currently weighs 23 lbs.

Here is what her foster family had to say:

May is a very social, energetic, little pup. She still has some learning to do but is very motivated to please and interested in everything that is going on. She is very sweet to everyone and makes friends easily. May loves being scratched and will even roll on her back for belly scratches. May loves playing with her squeaky toys and if you will join in with her, all the merrier! She also loves chasing a laser light like a cat. May has a little happy dance she does for us when presented with her food. She loves affection and cuddles, but does not sit still for long as she wants to see everybody.

May is an energetic, peppy little pup. She seems to have limitless puppy energy. When she does settle down, she sleeps on her back with the occasional little snore. She is also able to go on long walks despite her little size. May gets along very well with our current dog, who is twice her size. May is quite the little instigator and will try to initiate play when we are trying to get the dogs to settle. The dogs play well together. They will wrestle and then play keep away with a squeaky toy. May seems fine walking by other dogs on walks.

May is quite yippy in the home and alerts us to any noises she hears. She is being corrected when not to use her big voice and can usually be stopped before she barks. She is also still learning not to jump on people. She will chew on things if she is bored and left alone too long. This is easily corrected by giving her a toy and playing with her. She is too little to reach anything on the table, and her little legs prevent her from being able to jump up on furniture. She is very attention seeking and will follow people around the home and jump on them for attention.

When May first came to us she did not know her name or any commands. She has now learned her name and is working on 'sit' and 'paw'. Once she learns these we will progress to 'down' and 'stay'. She is also in the progress of learning the word 'settle'. May is well on her way to being house trained. She still has excited pees now and then. Her previous owners used pee pads with her but we are teaching her to go outside instead and she is coming along nicely. May is currently being crate trained, although she does not like entering the crate. She needs treats as an incentive. May is left in her crate overnight and only 1-2 hours during the day. May is learning to walk on a leash. She is still very puppy like when going on walks and has difficulty walking in a straight line. There is just so much for her to see! She is easily redirected, but will need further leash training.

May is young and very outgoing. She loves to be around people and other four legged friends. She still needs further training. Everyone falls in love with her when they meet her. She is very fun to play with and plays well with others. She is such a sweet little girl.

May has the potential to be a great family dog. She could fit in with a growing family as she still has some growing to do herself. She would be fine with younger children. She would need someone who has the time and patience to train her. May might not be the best fit for an apartment setting because she has the tendency to yip/bark at sounds (ie. people in the hallway). She is very energetic and would do well with someone who has time/energy to play with her and take her for walks. It would also be best if someone could be home with her the majority of the time because she is such a social little girl. May has the potential to be an amazing little dog, if she can find someone who will love, train and care for her.

If you think May would be a good choice for your family, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

May, a Hamilton Corgi puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Corgi for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Corgi puppy from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hamilton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Corgi breeders who help with Corgi rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
