Henry and Scarlett are pair of adorable corgi/terrier mix seniors. They are absolutely devoted to each other. We would like to see their dream of finding their forever home come true, but they have a unique situation. They are looking for a very special home with someone who is willing to adopt Henry and become the forever foster of Scarlett.\xa0
Southeast Corgi Rescue would like Scarlett to remain a part of rescue as a forever foster with Henrys new family, because Scarlett has heart valve issues. We want to ensure she gets the medical care and monthly medications she needs. So, who ever adopts Henry would also need to become Scarlett’s forever foster — someone to love and care for her, while SECR continues to be financially responsible for her medical care. In this situation there is a $125 adoption fee for Henry and no adoption fee for Scarlett.
PERSONALITY & BEHAVIORS
These two cuties enjoy a low-key lifestyle. They would probably do best with a retired individual or couple as they are homebodies and like a set routine particularly when it comes to meals. They love grooming each other, hanging with their people, taking leisurely walks, getting head pats and scratches, and of course treats. While Scarlett is more the curious leader and can be a bit reactive towards other dogs, Henry is more reserved and timid, but can get a little grumpy when startled and anxious in a new situations.
Scarlett and Henry came into rescue when their owner, who was elderly, passed away. They are velcro dogs and want to be with their human(s) as much as possible. While both are people friendly and they enjoy receiving attention and pats from adults and older children, they aren’t interested in playing with toys or being messed with. Cats are ignored, while other dogs are ignored, barked at, or occasionally (with Scarlett) aggressively pursued. Though she does respond well to distraction training.
These two are food motivated and can be quickly trained. They walk well on leash and know “sit, come, out of the kitchen, wait/stay, potty, and leave it.”
