Watson is 3 yrs old, chipped, neutered, and is up to date on rabies and such. He is a very sweet adorable corgi who is high energy and loves to bark. We are at a point in our lives where he has recognized me as the pack leader but since my wife spends most of her energy on our newborn and 18month old toddler, he does not listen to her well and barks due to lack of stimulation and not enough exercise. With the children needing their sleep and naps, and we receive alot of packages(lots of doorbell ringing), it has developed into a life where my wife is stressed at him most of the day because of his barking. And I work alot and am unable to spend the time I do have outside of work to appropriately exercise him regularly. He is truly a wonderful dog and it has taken us a while to get to this point, but having his owners stressed at him the majority of the day is no way for a happy go lucky corgi to live. Watson would definitely be happier in a home with some land, and preferably some other animals(dogs or livestock) that he can play/interact with. He needs to have 1-2 hrs of full on running, not on cement as he grinds down his nails, daily. I take him to the dog park as regularly as I can and he always gets along well with other dogs, has never been in a fight where he was the instigator. He is fantastic with kids, has never bitten anyone and has been trained to not jump. He knows all the normal dog stuff(Sit, lay down, shake, roll over, stay, etc...), and walks well on a leash for me, his pack leader. Not so good for my wife. Since being a puppy he has been around children and babies so he is very used to being tugged, stepped on, and all the things young children do. His response if he is unhappy with it is to just walk away. He will fetch a frisbee but gets bored with tennis balls. He is a great outdoors dog, doesn't notice the cold and loves going camping and hiking. Watson has been our family for the last 3 years so we want to be sure he is going to a good home. We will drive him anywhere within Colorado or closely bordering Colorado. We will require a vet reference, personal reference, and adoption fee to ensure he will not just be 'flipped' or 'turned around'. It feels weird to me to require a fee, but I want to ensure Watson is going to a home who truly wants him and can take care of him and that's one of the ways I can check that.
