Corky ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

Hey there! My name is Corky (though I donít know it yet Ďcause they just started calling me that). I was so glad the nice lady from Silky Rescue saved me from that cold, windy shelter cage -- and found a nice foster home to care for me in Southern California. Iím about 3 years old and weigh about 11 pounds.

Iím very gentle and sweet...just a tail-wagginí, happy-go-lucky, easy-going guy. Iím learning to play with toys but thatís not really my thing. What Iíd really love to do is lie near you and hang out all day...and Iíll alert you to noises with my manly bark (Iíll stop when you say so). I need a patient person who will teach me a few things like walking nice on leash, sit, down and stay as it seems Iíve never been asked to do those things before. Show me a cookie and Iím more than willing to try. Iím pretty good at my housetraining but youíll have to give me a schedule to be sure I "get it right". I sleep quietly all night in my pen. Iím really as good as any dog could be. Oh, and, being the handsome dude I am, I donít mind being groomed at all -- I didnít even mind have those mats brushed out or my toenails clipped.

Corky I was recently neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, just had my teeth cleaned and I have a microchip. I get along well with other dogs but would prefer to have my human to myself. A fenced yard is required as I am quite inquisitive...and fast (I act my age sometimes!). My adoption fee is $350.
