Ian is a one-and-a-half-year-old Corgi/Shepherd mix who possibly has a bit of Cattle Dog in him. He was rescued from the Devore Animal Shelter with an extreme case of pneumonia and is now well. Ian is a low to medium energy boy who took awhile coming out of his shell, but is now a happy dog at the rescue. I am not sure what his life was like before Angel’s Heart Dog Rescue, but the other dogs have helped bring Ian out of his shell and it has been a delight to watch him become more carefree and playful. Weighing 32 pounds, he is quite low to the ground and has the appearance of being a smaller dog. When he trots along, you can really see the Corgi in him! Ian is very friendly, gentle, and sweet, and I have never heard him bark. He can occasionally be a bit “mouthy,” grabbing your pant leg to let you know he is there, or giving you a “love bite”; basically, it is a herding dog communication style for this breed, not to be confused with nipping or biting. Ian enjoys sharing the same pet beds with the other dogs at the rescue. He strikes me as wanting to be more of a homebody, hanging out at home, rather than doing any type of strenuous activity. He walks well on the leash, but easy walking seems more up his alley. Ian has never had a potty accident (however, potty reinforcement is always suggested in any new environment) and he knows how to go in and out of the dog door to access the outdoors if all of the main doors are shut. He is crate-trained, sleeps quietly in his crate at night, enjoying a rawhide chip at bedtime, and will transition to a pet bed nicely. At times being a bit of a “velcro” dog, a key point about Ian is that he is extremely well-behaved. Though not tested, my gut feeling is NO for cats.
Ian is fine with all of the other dogs, boy, girl, larger, smaller, but he especially loves my Daisy May, a larger female dog. He often lies down near her and frequently gives her kisses. Sometimes I see them gently playing tug of war with a toy. He is learning to chase the ball. Ian’s best fit seems to be in a home with an easy going female dog. Generally speaking, he is NOT a dog who will want to be out in the yard by himself for long periods of time, but I do often find him sunning on the porch alone, knowing that the rest of his pack (including me) are nearby. Mostly, he will do his business outside, but wants to come back in. Ultimately, Ian’s best fit is somewhere where the people understand that these herding dog types like to be part of a pack, even if the pack is humans. I do not think he will be very happy with one single person who has to go to work every day, leaving him all by himself all day long.
Ian is neutered, de-wormed, vaccinated including rabies, and micro-chipped. If you are interested in Ian, please contact Angel’s Heart Dog Rescue at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
