    Quinn is deaf, right? Maybe he was frightened because he didn't hear them approaching?

    My corgi is definitely not calm lol. True to a herding dog, he’s got a lot of energy. I don’t mind it—he is incredibly smart and listens well—but he likes to play, all the time. He doesn’t nip/herd anybody, he’s incredibly friendly, and he’s eager to please.

    I love my corgi to bits. He’s fine around kids—he loves them—though we have to watch him to make sure he doesn’t get too excited and jump. Some corgis have a problem with nipping, too. But overall, I am very pleased with how my corgi behaves. :)

    Well, a friend of a friend has some Corgis for sale. I asked her about them..... $1,500!!!!! For a dog!!! No ma'am, no way, nuh uh.

    I could see and would consider $600, but $1,500??!! No .

    Maybe take a look at what your local pond/rescue has to offer? It isn´t uncommon for purebreds to land there with the mutts.
    And corgis are all the rage now so everyone and their brother gets them, without thinking of the needs the breed has...

    I haven't been to the the pound, i admit. Only because i'll be brought home more than one dog and probably a few cats... :confused::eek::whistle::rolleyes:

    I am on a cowboy corgi page on fb, ....which i want more than a purebred, and they're about $600. But i haven't seen the perfect one (color, sex, location) yet.

    Mine came from a corgi rescue and is a purebred. I thought the $80 adoption fee was so ridiculously low that I gave them $150. There are rescues all over the place now, since corgis have gotten so popular and a lot of people have gotten them that shouldn't have.

    They have weight issues (air ferns), and joint issues come with that. They also shed like a MOTHER!

    yikes! That is a steep price. You can find one for much less. I see them for sale locally for 4-600. I just saw an Aussie/Corgi cross for sale LOL Those idiots were calling it an "Auggie"

    I love Corgis myself, the gifs of the pups will melt an iceberg. Didn't know they shed tons though. That new grooming glove would be a huge plus!! (y)
