“Why not one more?” That was the question that the Seymours asked themselves when they thought about their happy pair of Corgi “sons.” It was enough to start Shandy Seymour’s search on Petfinder. “I found a plethora of available dogs, and it broke my heart to see them all,” she says.
Corgis are a popular breed, so she missed out on several adoptions to others. But then, just before Christmas, she saw a litter of Corgi pups that were listed at SCLP Pet Rescue in Wahoo, NE. “There was one male in the litter,” she says. “I had found my new son.”
The shelter responded quickly to her inquiry. But “there was a catch,” she says. “The male had already been spoken for. Would I be interested in a female?” Two of them remained at the shelter. She wasn’t sure but decided to meet them and make the decision then.
“No sooner had I sat down on the floor to play with them than one crawled into my lap and looked up at me,” she said. “She got me.” The decision was made.
And it has turned out to be a good choice. Buddha Bear, as the Seymours named her, fits into the family perfectly. Three may be a crowd when you’re trying to nap, but in this case, it’s a happy little pack.
