Cibo is a 7 year-old Corgi-GSD-x dog who is neutered. He is an active dog who likes to play fetch, hike, and snow shoe. Unfortunately he doesn’t do well with small children and other dogs which is why his owners need to find a new home for him. He is house trained and knows basic commands. He is the size of a Corgi with the coloring of a Shepherd.
I think that he looks quite a bit like a Vallhund.
His owner Jen says:
If you know of anyone that could take him as a rescue please let me know. My contact information is below. I would be more than happy to transport him.

Hi! My name is Rhino. I am a one year old neutered male Cardigan Corgi. I currently live with my family in Bothell, WA but I need to find a new home. I sometimes get too excited around the two young children I live with and forget that I should not herd them, so my mom and dad say I need to live somewhere where there are no kids.
I get along well with other dogs and often spend my days at doggy daycare where I happily play with other dogs of all sizes. When I have been around kitties, I just ignore them.
I also sometimes get possessive of my food, so I need a new family that can enforce the rules at feeding time. But when the rules are laid out for me, I respect them.
So won’t someone please give me a new home? I am current on my shots and am housebroken. I love to play and go for walks.
Since the original post, Rhino’s family has decided that they need to place him sooner rather than later. E-mail Megan at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help!
Of course you may have seen them on Penni’s blog, but I want to show them off too.
Chase x Magic puppies born 04/12/10.
Bred by Eric & Paula Weller, Edmonds, WA.
Puppy count: 5 boys, 3 girls. One red boy, it looks like one dark brindle, the rest bright red brindles.
In other news, there are more Swedish Vallhund puppies. Hank x Nikki, born on Sunday 04/11/10. Two girls: 1 natural bob, 1 tail, and a natural bob-tailed boy.
I’m still waiting for pictures of them.
And in still more news, I’ve been alerted to a couple of purebred Pembroke rescues in Roseburg. They are at Saving Grace Animal Shelter. Both are girls: one is 5 years old, the other is 7. Click on each picture to go to her information.
Of course, we are all against “puppy mills”. But there are already statutes that deal with animal abuse and neglect. I don’t understand how the new legislation will make it more enforced.
They did raise the initial limit from 25 dogs to 50. I’m sure that there are some mushers who were glad for that. But then again the bill says “for the primary purpose of reproduction”. That would theoretically exempt all but commercial breeders.
In other words: it would exempt hoarders. The worst cases we have seen as far as abusive and neglectful conditions have not been from USDA-inspected kennels. It has been from hoarders whose dogs are kept for reasons relating to the mental-health status of the owner, not for the express purpose of breeding.
In one of the more inane parts of the bill, it makes it illegal to stack crates. Huh? And the care portion of the bill, including this provision, pertains to anyone with 10 or more dogs who are 8 months or older. Ten dogs is not all that many for any hobby breeder who is actively showing and also keeps retirees. Mandy and I have 9 between us. And when her 4 visit my 5 we will certainly need to stack the crates in the dog room.
Oh, and it looks like you have to put the dogs somewhere else if you need to scoop poop out in the dog yard. That’s ok: Alice prefers to scoop it herself anyway.
For those who haven’t seen the expose on the HSUS by WSB-TV in Atlanta, the following website still seems to work. It seems to keep disappearing from various sites including YouTube and the station’s own website.
People need to know that the Humane Society of the United States is not their local humane society and operates no shelters. Money donated to them goes in large part to lobbying for legislation with the goal of eroding the rights of pet owners.
I’ve had a few questions about some of the practices of a local organization even before last year when a Sheltie/Corgi cross that I checked out in Klamath Falls turned up available in Medford with a different name.
This week, they brought in a busload of small dogs from the Fresno area to sell. We have way too many lab crosses and pitbull crosses locally. People want small dogs as pets. (See Mail Tribune article “Furry Friends from Fresno” 05/09/09.) People are always being told to adopt a rescue rather than buying from a breeder. So much better to save a life than to support the over-production and over-population of pets.
But some people would rather have a Cardigan than a pitbull or lab mix. Me, for example. But I digress.
From article: “Templeman said uncovering the cruel deaths of the puppies was especially disheartening as the society was finding new homes this weekend for a busload of small dogs — mostly Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes — rescued from Fresno, Calif.-area shelters. Thirty-one of those 63 dogs went home with new families over the weekend and more are on hold for prospective owners.”
I’m trying to figure out what one thing has to do with another. Why was it “especially disheartening”? These were yet more large-breed mix puppies that were not going to be desirable and therefore profitable. I wonder if the “breeder” tried to surrender the puppies to the shelter and was turned down.
Yes the deaths were horrible and the owners need to be prosecuted. It was irresponsible that the puppies were born in the first place. Perhaps these are the kind of people that animal rights groups are labeling as the “breeders” who should not be supported?
