Mix a Corgi and a Chihuahua
- and what do you get? A knock -off Mini German Shephard! That is
As a tiny pup I was adopted from a South Carolina shelter. My
parents supposedly were a Corgi and a Chihuahua. Why did my owners
think I would not grow up and look like a Corgi? I was not small
enough. So when I wa little over as a year old not long ago and
fully grown at about 20 lbs, they turned me into a shelter. I was so scared. Not at
all used to other dogs, and suddenly I was thrown into the middle of
a crowd of rambunctious dogs of all sizes. My tail went into hiding
for days and I wanted to crawl into a hole in the wall.
Then one day
I was taken onto a two day car drive North, and came to this here
foster home. I was still very unsure of myself and crawled on my
belly for a few days instead of walking upright. But it only took
a week and I got the idea.
I made friends with the other dogs and had
a blast playing the rabbit. Fast as a rabbit I would invite them to
chase me and outrun them each time! Now I am an athletic little
runner, I never run away even when not on a leash, come immediately
when called by my name.
I learned my new name in only a few days.
When I came here I was called Bella Faye, arrggh, I never listened
to that name. My inner dog is not a Southern Belle but a Tom Boy!!
I do have some "couch
potential" - although I only jump up there on invitation.
Mostly I would sit next to you
and put my head onto your knees, and then my paw. And yes, I know to
shake paw, I sit, and I walk well on leash. I am fiercely house
trained. I love my crate, you can leave the door open, I have a 2nd story
crate and I jump in and out just for fun.
I am always hungry and eat
ANYTHING...I am not pleased when another dog gets too close to my
food. Of course had the fix and enough "shots" for a
life time.. No heartworms either.
I could be a therapy dog OR
an agility dog, or both, or just YOUR dog.
