Shorty's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Shorty's Story...
Wanna see a trick? I betcha I can make you love me in one fell swoop! I'll roll onto my back and you can scratch my belly and see just how happy that makes me - and you'll fall in love with my chocolatey brown eyes!

They call me the friendly giant! I am estimated to be 2 years old and I weigh in at 25lbs, but am incredibly short - they say that's because I'm a corgi-bassett mix, but I think I just didn't eat enough vegetables as a puppy. I am a slight exception to their "under 25 lb rule" because I'm about as tall as some of the lighter pups they've brought up!

I have a very easy going demeanor, get along well with other dogs and in fact love those that are a bit smaller than me. I was caught giving ear kisses to Cola, another CaliCan pup who weighs in around 5lbs!

I may be short in size, but I'm tall on love! Can I ask one favor though? My dream home is one where there are a LOT of toys! The more, the better! And my legs? Yeah, they are a little goofy, but that could be because of my lineage (dachshund maybe?). The vet checked me out and I got the A-OKay!

If you are interested in putting an application in for me, please contact my friends at CaliCan Rescue Foundation. They'll tell you my adoption fees are $280 which covers my neuter, rabies and all other vaccines, heart worm testing, microchipping, deworming, all necessary vet visits to get ready, and the flight up here! You can email them at info@calicanrescue.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Edmonton 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 Edmonton 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/Basset Hound breeders who help with Corgi/Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Edmonton paves the way for another one to be saved.
