I have a corgi that’s 5 years old. We still have the papers and everything. My husband bought the dog from a farmer who uses corgis to herd cattle on her farm. This dog was the runt of the litter.
Corgis are not as good as the internet makes you think they are, and with the fact that our dog was never fully domesticated, things have been worse. I’d tried really hard to train him, and we’ve had moderate success. I’ve had to go to urgent care before, and he has bitten me quite often, breaking the skin quite a few times. He continues to bite hard, but his bites no longer break the skin as much as they did before. He isn’t good with other dogs as well as he bit our other dog on numerous occasions, and we had to raise them separately until the other one passed from old age.
I’m 6 months pregnant, and the dog bit me once more. It’s mostly around food, but he does have predatory aggression and will bark at you in attempts to dominate you. We’ve tried for so long to work around him because I believe that you have to take responsibility for your actions. Yet, I know the dog won’t get any better, and we’re absolutely certain that he’ll harm our child once she’s born. It’s not like we can keep him in a kennel until he dies.
This is specifically for experienced corgi owners. We’re not looking to sell him and are giving him away for free provided that you have years of experience with difficult corgis or are a dog trainer. The dog is 100% potty-trained, though when he does get a bit excited, he will pee on you. This isn’t something you can train out of him as he isn’t aware that he’s peeing from the excitement.
Please no judgment. Contact me to set up an interview/meet-up.
We will be providing a decent amount of dog food (almost a full bag), leash, kennel, dog bed, and whatever item we have that is used by the corgi.
