Andy's Story...
Hello my name is Andy and I am a 7 year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Let me start by reading you an excerpt from the online Corgi breed description. "The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a hardy, highly intelligent, obedient, protective and devoted dog. Corgis are extremely active and devoted little dogs, and are usually good with considerate children. They make fine guards, and excellent show and obedience dogs. Wary of strangers, it should be properly socialized and trained when it is still young - to avoid over-protective behavior as an adult. Males can be aggressive with other male dogs.The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a most agreeable small house dog with an affectionate nature" Well let me tell you, this sure rains true in my case. I am an intelligent, obedient, devoted companion. Well trained, housebroken and eager to please. I am also weary of children so a home with older kids is important. I am fun and active and full of personality. I did great meeting the cat today and I do well with the other dogs here at the shelter, but I would prefer to have my home and family to myself. I have a lot of love to offer and I don't want anyone getting in the way of it! I do take daily pills, well actually just one pill a day, and a specific kind of dog food to help my liver stay healthy. Other than that I am healthy as a horse! I've said quite enough about myself, so how about you just come on in to Family Dogs and just meet this wonderful fella in person. 7 years-30lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and includes; neuter, 5 week Training Class, free veterinary exam (SE Portland/Milwaukie area only), 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & Treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Andy, a Portland Pembroke Welsh Corgi dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pembroke Welsh Corgi for sale in Portland, or seeking a Pembroke Welsh Corgi dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland 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 Portland 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 Pembroke Welsh Corgi breeders who help with Pembroke Welsh Corgi rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
