Facts about Springles (Springsteen)

  • Breed: Pembroke Welsh Corgi
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
We get so many inquiries on Springlesbut people don't seem to take the time to read the bio. Please do that as we are looking for a specific type of home for him. He does have special behavioral considerations. Serious inquiries only. Springsteen will only be adopted in central and southern CA. Springsles is a special needs dog with a bite history. Read his bio thoroughly and if you are a dog trainer or animal behaviorist, that would be ideal. Springsteen is a 5 year old sable and white purebred Pembroke Welsh Corgi neutered male. He is crate and housetrained and very affectionate with his foster mom. He might do well with a small very mellow dog but is really best as the only pet in an adult, low traffic home. He needs a yard and would not be suitable for an apt. He knows some basic commands but would definitely be a candidate for an in home dog trainer that also has behavioral training background. He gets reactive in new situations so that is why we want a low key environment for him where he doesn't get stressed out. He weighs about 32 lbs. and came into rescue from one of the LA County Animal Shelters. He is available for adoption in southern CA only. He will need a very corgi/herding dog savvy mature adopter and does better with a female adopter. Adoption process: completion of a pre adopt ap, homeck, contract, trial period, followup visit and donation of $325

St. Anthony's Canine Rescue has been in existence for 24(1/20/88) and has specialized in small to medium dog rescue/adoptive placement. Welsh Corgi purebreds (Pembrokes and Cardigans) plus Corgi mixes have been our first priority. We feature other rescue colleagues with other types of dogs as well for adoption We network with other independent rescuers and organizations to facilitate home checks, dog transport and dog placement. Our adoption process is: home check, two week trial period, contract and adoption donation of $100 and $350. Average is $125-$225 mix breed and $100 to $350 purebred. Our dogs are spayed/neutered, current on shots, microchipped and placed for compatibility in adoptive homes for a life time commitment and as housepets only. We have lifetime return of any adopted dog for any reason. We are limited to the volume of dogs we can handle at any given time due to foster home limitations. We do not operate a kennel. We are willing to work with owned dogs if the owners/rescuers who can continue to house the dogs until a suitable adoptive home is found. We do not operate a kennel and our foster homes are most often full. We need foster homes and you can go to and complete a foster home application on line.

We offer in home dog training, pet sitting and dog walking in the south bay area of LA County. A brochure is available via email upon request. We have been serving the south bay since 2000.

2015 I have assisted with owner surrender dogs and some shelter dogs that I bailed out and they came into my rescue. However, my intake of dogs is definitely greatly reduced and I post dogs that are at shelters for direct adoption at the shelters and do courtesy posts for others needing to rehome their dog.
will continue to keep my websites active as I still have 5 dogs to
place plus I am converting my rescue format. I started posting corgis
for direct adoption at shelters and have gotten some good results. I
will now call myself the "corgi matchmaker". Since I have been doing
my thing for a quarter of a century, my rescue is known for corgis,
both pure and mix. I will match applicants to dogs at shelters. I
also will continue to do courtesy posts for a couple of other
independent rescuers. Last but not least, I will continue to work
with owned corgis for rehoming as long as their owners can continue to
keep them until a good home is found. I did this with two senior
Pembroke females last year that had special needs and found good homes
for them. On the latter, I will use my
placement format with hmcks, donation, etc.

I am not leaving rescue, I'm just lightening my load. I'm no longer a
spring chicken and feel it is not wise to overload myself with the
responsibility of fostering dogs
and all that involves, for them and me.

I will still hold two corgi potluck picnics annually, the next one
after 5/25 will be in October for our annual Halloween picnic with
Halloween costume contest and talent contest.

Corgially Yours,
