Max's Story...
Got a call from a small town shelter about a 'Westie/Corgie' mix. Guess I should have asked for a picture before I drove all the way out there to pick him up. He is a great little guy, but I don't see any Westie in him Actually, he is very frustrated by Westies, because they refuse to be herded, and as you Corgie lovers know, that is intolerable to these 'doodlebug' Corgies. He doesn't seem to have any objections to the Shih Tzu in residence, but the Westies are really getting on his nerves. He is also very food aggressive, but only to the Westies. He lets the Shih Tzu have all he wants, but he devotes his waking hours to protecting the feed dish from all the white dogs. He used to try to keep me away from his food bowl, but he has a new understanding that that is not allowed, and if he forgets, he gets sent to his room. (It is too funny to watch him try to pretend it was all his idea to go to his room, as he marches off with his head high, grumbling under his breath) He was in serious pain when he got here. I think he was probably kicked pretty hard by someone. He has healed now, but he is very careful what humans he lets into his inner circle. If he likes you, he is very affectionate, and loves hugs and kisses. He will also cuddle, but only on his own terms. Also, he does not like to be picked up! I think he has that right, and I can respect that. I also think he may very well get over it, in time. Fortunately, if you throw a blanket over him, he gives up, so you can pick him up when you have to. Max is a true character, with a Napoleon complex and lots of attitude. He is a challenge, but very much worth it. I love his little guy. He can be so loving and gentle. His eyes are so expressive when he tells you he loves you. We think he is about 5 yrs old. We do not charge an adoption fee, but do ask a donation to reimburse for our medical and transport expenses. That is usually $450 for an adult dog, $650 for puppy under 1 year, and reduced amounts for senior and special needs dogs. Now that we are officially a 501c3 charity, all donations are tax deductible Each dog will be spayed/neutered, heartworm tested (negative, unless stated otherwise), treated for parasites, and up to date on shots. While we are vigilant to get everyone as healthy as possible before we send them off to start their new lives, it is to be expected that, after the stress of traveling across the country from Kansas, (where our dogs are rehabilitated), and going to a new home, they will probably need to be retreated for parasites. We want to stress that your new friend needs to be seen by your veterinarian within the first week of arrival. We absolutely guarantee a happy adoption, or you MUST return the dog and we will undo the contract. If you are not happy, the dog is not happy, and we are not happy. We are in this to make the dogs happy. You may find some of our previously adopted dogs on our 'Happy Tails' page on this website.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rye 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 Rye 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 Rye paves the way for another one to be saved.
