Featured Dog: Princess Sophie

Sophie Princess Sophie is an 8 month old Corgi/Cattle Dog mix who was given up by her owner to Corgi Rescue as she could no longer take care of her. She is spayed, current on vaccines, and heartworm-negative. Sophie is not well socialized and will take some patience to teach her to do her business outside and come back in when called. She is doing much better, but still needs some patience until she gains your trust. Sophie is a little shy and still afraid of people and of dogs that she does not know. Sophie loves going out with a Cairn Terrier named Buffy as they have gotten close to one another and they have come to like to go together outside. Sophie needs a fenced yard so she can run and play when she decides to do so. She is a little confused by what is going on right now and is a little afraid. Sophie has a wonderful personality and disposition once she gets to know you and she feels safe around you. Sophie's adoption donation is $350.00. For further information about Sophie, please e-mail Carol at

- Who We Are -

My late husband and I started Corgi Rescue when we lived in the State of Washington. After we moved to Ohio, we decided to continue rescuing Corgis and Corgi mixes. I am retired, have three Corgis of my own, and my goal is to make sure that no Corgi or Corgi mix is put to sleep, but has the promise of a good home. I love our dogs and want the absolute best for them.

Since we started Corgi Rescue in June of 2004, we have placed many Corgis, Corgi mixes and other breed mixes in forever loving homes. I am proud of our accomplishments and look forward to continuing our work with the shelters, pounds and owner turn-ins so no dog will be without a good home.

All of our dogs are current on vaccines, rabies, heartworm checked, neutered or spayed, on Frontline Plus and Heartgard. Any other medical problems have been addressed and are treated.

We have instituted a "Trial Basis Program" This program gives the adoptive family a weeks trial with the dog to see if the family is happy with the dog and the dog is happy with the family. This is important in that both the dog and the family should bond with one another.

I am a small rescue and can only take a few dogs at a time. I strive to find homes that can foster our dogs until the perfect adoptive family comes along. I am always looking for foster parents for my dogs. If you would be interested in fostering one of my dogs, please e-mail me. Your help would be most appreciated.

- Adopting a Friend -

When thinking about the adoption of a dog, you should consider the area needed for the dog to run and play. Are the children too small to take responsibility for the dog? Can you handle the financial responsibility? How long will the dog be in the house without being let out, etc.

In order to be considered as a prospective adoptive pet parent, an adoption application can be filled out on line and submitted to my rescue for approval. Vet references along with personal references will be checked along with a home visit. Applications are considered on a first come first serve basis. If you have been selected as the family to adopt one of my rescue dogs, I will be in touch with you and an adoption contract will be filled out and signed on the day you come for your companion animal. We require an appointment to see our adoptable dogs.
