About Rummy (and Todd)

Adoption Fee: $650
Corgi / Papillon
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Rummy came into his foster home a scared and confused boy. A few weeks later, after escaping his original foster and being on the run, Todd met Rummy in his new foster home. Rummy was immediately drawn to Todd and hasn't let him out of his sight since. Although initially they are both on the shy side, they have helped each other cope with the transition of a new home, new smells, new humans and dogs, and new situations. We would love to see them be adopted together. Their personalities are different but their needs are very similar. - a secure fenced in yard (6 ft wood for Todd) and no apartments - no kids or visiting grandkids under 12 y/o if any - humans who walk daily and are home often - no cats! Rummy is a 14# small fluffy Corgi mix. The vets guess his age anywhere between 5-7 y/o. We think he's on the upper end of that range due to his mannerisms and because he does have a heart murmur and enlarged left atrium. He's on a prescription called pimobendin or vetmedin for his heart issues and will need to be on that for the rest of his life (approx cost is $45/month). When Rummy's owner passed away, he was caught out running the streets with the wrong crowd and ended up in the doggie slammer. He's a quiet boy until he is displeased with something like being crated then he barks, howls, and carries on, so crating him isn't really an option. Rummy is pretty shy with new people and will need some time to warm up. Both will have an easier time adjusting to a new home with new people if they're together. Rummy is particular about being approached and picked up, so no children or visiting grandchildren under 12 y/o if any in his new home. He'd prefer a low key home with not a lot commotion and/or people coming and going. Rummy needs a little more work learning to not mark indoors, but is good as long as you keep your eye on him, let him out every couple hours, and make sure he does his business when he goes outside. He is a sensitive guy so yellers (you know who you are) need not apply. Rummy and Todd will need a fenced in yard but that will not be a substitue for walks because they both love to go on walkies. Todd is a bit of a puller so will need some work. Rummy is a great little walker and it's probably his favorite thing to do. He keeps a good pace when it's not too hot out but can't go for miles. Short frequent walks would make him a very happy boy. His second favorite thing is chasing his foster mom around the backyard and tugging on her pant legs. Todd is a an approx 1.5 y/o Chiweenie/Beagle mix who weighs approx 14#. Todd hasn't been someone's beloved pet until recently so he's still learning the sights, sounds, smells and behaviors in the house. He's not one to make eye contact right away and is slow to warm up to people but does enjoy the company of and playing with dogs, so another friendly, playful dog his size is REQUIRED in Todd's new home. Todd would also prefer a calm, quiet home where he will be given time, love, and patience to come out of his shell and become the loving, silly boy that he is. Todd likes to play with toys but does not like to be crated. He is neutered, utd on vaccs, chipped, and HW -.
