Who is this dog for?

The Pembroke is for may girlfriend and I. We currently live in a 3 bedroom home together with our two cats. We have a wonderful fenced in yard as well. We have been wanting to get a dog to complete our family for the time being, but refuse to purchase one from the breeder. We both grew up with dogs, and now living together on our own we miss having one, though our cats are wonderful companions as well. Sarah is obsessed with Corgi's, and we would like to help save a life, while also saving money by adopting a rescue. We are in no-rush, and our only specification is that the dog must get along with cats. We take care of our 2 cats like they are our children, and would never want to endanger them with a dog that could be aggressive towards them. We are happy to take a middle-aged corgi, and gender is not important. We want what would be best for the dog as well. Thank you for your time 🙂

Why do you want a Pembroke?
My girlfriend and I have done significant research on the breed. While I am more open to rescue other breeds as well, my girlfriend really has her heart set on Corgis, so I insist that we rescue. I grew up with Shelties, so I am very used to hyper and vocal medium sized dogs. I also just moved out of a home with a dauschund with = aggression issues, so I have had a good amount of experience with obedience training and just dealing with the unexpected when it comes to taking care of these animals. My girlfriend has a family friend who owns two corgis, and we have spent much time with them, making us want one even more. We grew up with dogs all our lives, and feel a corgi will be the perfect fit in our new home. At the end of the day, we just care about saving a life.

Activities planned with Pembroke:
We would love to play with the dog a good amount! Our home has a decent sized flat yard with a good fence, and we would love for it to be able to run around outside with a good amount of freedom as well! We would love to cuddle with the dog and have it sleep with us at night if it likes. I oftentimes work from home, so the dog would have near-constant attention.

Will handle mistakes Pembroke makes like this:
The dog would be disciplined by perhaps being told to sit in its bed, and using a stern tone to display the wrongdoing. We would never dream of physically hurting the dog in anyway. We also will reward the dog with treats as to help teach it has done something well.

Discipline:
Nothing physical. I believe in being stern and addressing the dog with confidence and consistency.


Where would Pembroke spend the majority of the time:
The dog would spend most of the time in the house when we are not home (which is rare), in the yard, or with us. We also have my parents who live 5 minutes away who can take care of the dog.

Play & exercise:
