Featured Dog: Prince Monty

Monty PRINCE MONTY is a 2.5 year old White/Sable Corgi/Chihuahua mix who is current on all vaccines, neutered and Heartworm negative. He weighs about 8 lbs. Monty was found in Garrett, KY running down the middle of the road in the middle of Garrett. He was taken to Dumas Rescue in Garrett, KY and then into Ms. Emily’s foster home. However, since he was a Corgi mix, they asked me if I could take him into my rescue which I did.

Monty is housetrained and crate trained. He loves playing outside and he gets along well with dogs that he knows. He definitely has his own disposition and personality but he is a little slow to warm up to strangers but is a very lovable dog once he gets to know you. He likes some toys but prefers to have another small dog to play with. He is not a barker unless someone is around that he does not know. He likes to cuddle on your lap and sleep on your bed. Monty does well in a car but is ready for his new home so that he will not have to go from one person to another. A fenced yard is a must for Monty as he loves running and playing. Monty trains easily to routine especially when you reward him with his favorite treat.

Monty would do well in a single family, a retired couple who travels a lot or a family with children older than 10 years of age. As you know Corgis like to herd so they have a habit of nipping at small childrens’ heels. Monty’s adoption donation is $275.00. For further information about Monty, please e-mail Carol at or call 937-750-5895. An adoption application is required and can be filled out by clicking the Application link above.

- Who We Are -

My late husband and I started Corgi Rescue when we lived in the State of Washington. After we moved to Ohio, we decided to continue rescuing Corgis and Corgi mixes. I am retired, have three Corgis of my own, and my goal is to make sure that no Corgi or Corgi mix is put to sleep, but has the promise of a good home. I love our dogs and want the absolute best for them.

Since we started Corgi Rescue in June of 2004, we have placed many Corgis, Corgi mixes and other breed mixes in forever loving homes. I am proud of our accomplishments and look forward to continuing our work with the shelters, pounds and owner turn-ins so no dog will be without a good home.

All of our dogs are current on vaccines, rabies, heartworm checked, neutered or spayed, on Frontline Plus and Heartgard. Any other medical problems have been addressed and are treated.

We have instituted a "Trial Basis Program" This program gives the adoptive family a weeks trial with the dog to see if the family is happy with the dog and the dog is happy with the family. This is important in that both the dog and the family should bond with one another.

I am a small rescue and can only take a few dogs at a time. I strive to find homes that can foster our dogs until the perfect adoptive family comes along. I am always looking for foster parents for my dogs. If you would be interested in fostering one of my dogs, please e-mail me. Your help would be most appreciated.

- Adopting a Friend -

When thinking about the adoption of a dog, you should consider the area needed for the dog to run and play. Are the children too small to take responsibility for the dog? Can you handle the financial responsibility? How long will the dog be in the house without being let out, etc.

In order to be considered as a prospective adoptive pet parent, an adoption application can be filled out on line and submitted to my rescue for approval. Vet references along with personal references will be checked along with a home visit. Applications are considered on a first come first serve basis. If you have been selected as the family to adopt one of my rescue dogs, I will be in touch with you and an adoption contract will be filled out and signed on the day you come for your companion animal. We require an appointment to see our adoptable dogs.
