My story

We adopt only in the Greater St. Louis Area.

If you are thinking that I'm a very handsome boy, well that's what my foster mom says so it must be true. My name is Ricky. I'm a Corgi mix. I'm half Cardigan and half Pembroke. I bet that you didn't know that makes me a mixed breed dog.

My foster mom says that I'm the sweetest boy that ever came into rescue. That means that I have a good temperament. Not much bothers me. I'm a go with the flow kinda guy. I like to sit on mom or dad's lap and watch a bit of TV. Mom calls it together time.

I do like to play with my foster sister. We play tug of war and who can squeak the toy the mostest times. The best fun is when we run out the door and race to the yard. Sometimes I win and that's cool! And that means I need a fenced yard, and certainly not one of those shock kinda fences. Who would have one of those? I also like to dig. If you have a mole I'm the guy for you. Mom says someday I may dig to China. I'm not sure what that means but it sure sounds like fun. We dig weeds in the garden too. I like working in the garden. Mom laughs when my head pops up with a muddy nose. She calls me the digging machine. She is so funny!

I wasn't house trained when I got here, but I had something called a neuter. Now I'm perfectly house trained and I like my crate too. I like peanut butter Kongs, squeaky toys, my nylabone, and veggies and blueberries in my dinner bowl. Did you know that they are really good for you? Yummy too. Oh, I better mention that I don't run stairs. Nope, stairs scare me so no two story houses for me. I'm a perfect 26 pounds. Did you know that fat Corgis can have lots of back problems? I sure don't want to have those.

Prior dog owner experience is a plus. Ricky is approximately two and a half years old. He has had all vaccines, neutered, and microchipped. We require a fenced yard. No electric fences. Please note that a dog park is not a substitute for a fenced yard. We do not adopt to homes with small children. Visit our website at www.petssecondchance.org for more information about us. If you would like a wonderful, funny, and smart Corgi, please email claireelizabeth@petssecondchance.org or call 314-422-2350.

Why adoption is a great option

Ricky, a Chesterfield Pembroke Welsh Corgi/Cardigan Welsh Corgi dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pembroke Welsh Corgi/Cardigan Welsh Corgi for sale in Chesterfield, or seeking a Pembroke Welsh Corgi/Cardigan Welsh Corgi dog from a breeder in Chesterfield.

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