**Doogie is a 6 year old corgi and up to date on shots. He was turned into rescue when he was 2 years old for food aggression and lack of socialization. His family had another dog that they would let out when Doogie was fed; there would be a fight over the food. Over time Doogie started to guard his food. Doogie’s food aggression is fixed for the most part: he can eat with anyone near him, has quit eating when asked to leave it, and has eaten his food between foster parent's feet.
Doogie can get over-excited when out in public. When he is excited, he barks, jumps and doesn’t listen. Over time with training, he has improved. He can go many places w/o getting over-excited, but it may not last long. If he gets overexcited, we move away from the cause and get his attention. It is very important that Doogie continue to work on this behavior with his new family.
Currently, Doogie is fed in a crate and we recommend this continue in his new home. He know basic commands, sit and wait and walks on a leash. Doogie gets along with most dogs and hangs out with a terrier at his foster home. He got out once and greeted everyone and their dog up and down the street until his foster parent got him. He is crate-trained and housebroken. He needs an experienced/savvy corgi owner that is willing to maintain the training he has been through. Doogie would do well as a single dog or with a mellow dog. It is not recommended that he be homed with a dog that gets overly excited as it will feed his issue. In general he isn’t a barker at home, only barks when something is going on around the yard.
