Astro the #Corgi Made A Dog Lover Out of Him!






Can you believe that Dusty wasn't a real "dog person" before Astro came along? 





Oh no, say it ain't SO! 





Impossible to tell from these pics of the little man and his doting Dad, isn't it? 

(Astro fixed that nonsense). 





Nowadays they're best pals who love spending time together. 





Sniffing out trouble …




… seeing the sights ...





… yep, life is GOOD. I think it's love. 

Corgi On, men!



Thursday #Corgi Adoptables: Angel's Happy Ending Is A Brand New Beginning!




This one's a heart warmer with a bit of a twist. As told by Jeanette DeMars of Corgi Connection of Kansas …






Angel was listed on a "classified" website where CCK saw her and offered to help the family re-home her. When we can, Corgi Connection will help families re-home their 
Corgis without having to actually go through the rescue. This saves valuable foster space, and oftentimes the dogs being re-homed from their current family are really ready to go directly to their furr-ever home.

Barbara Blackman and her husband Jacques had made an adoption application to CCK. At about the same time, I saw a Corgi listed on a website to be re-homed. I contacted the Corgi's owners, and it seems Angel had become stressed and suddenly taken a dislike to the other female Corgi in the house. The situation was proving difficult for all involved, and after talking it over, the couple decided to let CCK find a new home for their beloved Angel.

Well, the Blackmans were looking for a female Corgi after having just lost one earlier this year and didn't particularly want a puppy. After going through the regular application process we "hooked" the Blackmans up with Angel's family and it was an immediate adoption!




Barbara reports: "I thought my last Corgi was the best dog in the world, and now I’ve met Angel. She is perfect! We spent our three hours bonding in the car on the way home. She is laying at my feet right now while I write this. She had a bath a little while ago and seemed to enjoy it. When I was finished and asked her to shake, she shook! She liked the hair dryer on low."

(Editor's note: Video! Video! We want video!)




Angel has been in the crate in the bedroom with a few treats thrown in. I haven’t tried shutting the door yet. She met some of the neighbors and warmed up quickly. She walks beautifully on a lead. We haven’t heard a bark out of her yet." 

"She is very careful to give equal attention to my husband, Jacques, and myself. She goes back and forth. Angel is loving and adorable. I hope to get her in to see the vet tomorrow so she can get caught up on her shots, heartworm meds, flea and tick stuff, teeth cleaned and micro-chipped. Thank you so much for putting us in touch with Darryl. I know it was hard for them to give her up."




We are grateful to the Blackmans for opening their heart and home to Angel. It takes a lot of time no matter what method you use to find the right home for a dog, but the end result is sooooo worth it! 

Welcome to the Corgi Connection of Kansas family, Angel and the Blackmans!
