My name is Melly!

Corgi Dog for adoption in Lomita, California - Melly

I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Melly's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Melly's Story...
Melly is currently with her owner in Cerritos until we find the right home for her. Here is her bio as written by her owner who saved her from a very neglectful situation.

Gender :Female

8 years old
Breed Color :Red & White
Weight :20 lbs
Has tail :No
Is neutered/spayed :Yes
Vaccinated :Yes
Micro Chipped :Yes
General Health :Good
Personality :Melly is a dominant personality. I rescued her in November
2010; she is nervous as well. I also have two other corgis; the two females
have had serious fights.

Behavior with Children :Melly came from a family with a toddler. I saw them
together; Melly was good with the baby. However, this was before the fights
started with my first female. Melly continues to be very interested in small
children, because she hasn't forgotten her previous family.

Behavior with other animals :Melly needs to be in a home without other dogs.
Adults would be best, or older children. She has a sweet personality, but
she is a dominant dog.

Aggressive Behavior :I have not seen any aggression towards people. She
seems fine. It's other dogs. I think my male may have contributed to this.
While not aggressive, he doesn't like other males.

Type of Toys :Melly likes chew toys--strong chewer

Housetraining :Yes

Obedience training :No

Sleeps where :Until the past two weeks, she was sleepiing in her crate with
the door open. She does not wander at night. She's a quiet sleeper. She has
also slept on my bed with the other two dogs, at least, before the fights

How Corgi Acquired :A couple had her. They were ignoring her, and shaving
her down to the skin every year--because she shed. I couldn't stand that, so
took her into my home. She was very dirty, had flea dermatitis, lick
granulomas (?), and a very bristly coat. She had not been to a vet for at
least 3 years and had not been out of the backyard for at least that length
of time. The couple told me that they had taken to training classes. When I
asked what they fed her, the man's reply was "she'll eat anything." They
said her name was Morgan or Morgy. She didn't answer to either name, so I
named her Melly, from the Welsh word for 'sweet.' I rarely saw her ears up
in the first three months she lived with me.

Needs new home because :The females are not getting along at all. I hired a
dog behaviorist, whose first visit was 4-20-11. I know that's not enough
time to get results, but I just don't think the two females are ever going
to get along. I don't want to give her up because I like her, but I think it
would be better if she was in a one dog family.

Other Info :Melly is not a breeder corgi. I think she was purchased in a pet
store, as a puppy mill dog. She's small, with a very pointed muzzle. Her
legs are long. She's a beautiful red color, and her coat is coming in
nicely. A delight to pet now, not the bristly coat she had. She's had a
rough time; she needs someone to love her

Adoption process: completion of a pre adopt ap, homecheck, contract, followup visit if in a 75 mile radius. Adopters out of the area must agree to a homecheck by a rescue colleague and come to the southbay of LA County to adopt Melly. Adption donation applies to the rescue.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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