My story

Pembroke Welsh Corgi
Age: approx. 2 year
Male, Neutered
30 lbs

Adoption Fee: $125 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)

PLEASE READ ARCHIE’S DESCRIPTION VERY CAREFULLY.

HE NEEDS TO BE ADOPTED IN THE LOCAL SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA. Out-of-area inquiries will be ignored. Sorry.

Archie is NOT a “family pet.” He is a working dog. His Corgi herding instincts are VERY STRONG, and not something that can be “trained away.” If he sees you as the dominant “boss” he can be a great companion. If he doesn’t respect you as the boss, he will treat you as livestock. He is stubborn, and will challenge your authority, at first. He has a little bit of PTSD around feet, above and beyond typical herding behavior. In his previous life, he may have been corrected physically by being kicked - so caution needs to be taken when walking in his space (shoes are recommended). He is sometimes startled when being touched without warning, and may lash out. It is a good idea to get his attention, first, before petting him.

He is good with other dogs that don’t mind his dominant personality. HOWEVER, he becomes easily over-stimulated when other dogs are around, triggering his herding behaviors. Corgis are “self-managed” herders, they don’t take direction well from humans when they are in herding mode.

When he is not too wound up, he is affectionate, but in a dominant way. He is also VERY MOUTHY (Corgi behavior), so care is needed when getting affectionate or playful with him. He LOVES toys and it is recommended that you have toys at the ready when interacting with him - it gives his mouth something to do other than chewing on your hand. At night, he prefers sleeping in a closed crate and it is highly recommended that he be crated at night.

Please note that we do not adopt any of our dogs out to families with children under the age of 13, and in Archie’s case: an adult-only household. So far, Archie seems to do better with men than woman (as far as whom he perceives as “the boss”)

Additionally, to adopt Archie you must own your house with a good-sized, fenced-in backyard - no renters, condos or apartments.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We specialize in "hard to place dogs" due to their breed, age, minor behavioral or medical conditions. We strive to keep our fees reasonable ($125), and we have sponsorship funds to help with fees, if needed. After the application is approved, the prospective adopter must take the dog on a trial-basis "sleepover" for a few days, before finalizing the adoption. We require landlord approval if the applicant is renting their living space. We only do adoptions in San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding regions. We DO NOT adopt to families with children under the age of 13.

More about this rescue

We specialize in finding homes for dogs where “imperfection” is tolerated in exchange for a lifetime of love and devotion. Our foster dogs have been discarded by the people they once trusted, only to find themselves in a shelter with no other options. We want them to have a second chance to receive the love and care they deserve.
