Happy Tail: An energetic Corgi becomes a model neighbor

Brody has more than 270 friends on his MySpace page and the neighbor kids come over to ask if he can come out to play. That’s quite a change from the “unsociable” label he earned just a few years ago while waiting for a home.

Brody, then two years old, was spotted on Petfinder by Dale Mustard of Cannon Beach, Ore., after the Pembroke Welsh Corgi had washed out at his previous two homes: once for his high energy, once because he bullied the family’s new dog.

Rescued Paws in Longview, Wash., posted Brody on Petfinder, but he “was pegged as one ‘who does not get along with others,’ ” according to Dale. “Now he has a more active social life than his human family.”

It’s not only kids who seek him out; neighborhood adults call and
ask if Brody can come over for the afternoon or spend the
night. Dale’s husband even calls him a therapy dog because he brings
smiles to people’s faces.

Brody, who has been living with three
cats, recently got a new friend when the family adopted an Australian
Cattle Dog pup. “They enjoy twice-daily romps on the beach, and he is
very protective (in a good way) of his ‘puppy,’ ” Dale says. “Her high-energy personality matches his, and Brody now has his dog buddy for
life. Not bad for someone who ‘didn’t get along.’ “
