Corey has made it! Our cantankerous Corey has been adopted by a long-time supporter of our rescue. Corey was and is a very special lil’ dude. He will be loved and cared for by his new bully brother, Brutus, and dad Carter.
I know these things happen, but I never thought it would happen to me. My family always loved me. But they were displaced from our home and had no where to go. I told them I would go join rescue and they would not have to worry about taking care of me when they had no home.
My name is Corey and I am 2 years old. I am a little thin and I have some bad spots on my skin where my hair is all gone. We never could figure out what caused it or what to do. So I will be spending some time with the nice ladies at the clinic for spa treatments and a little surgery. They said they would give me plenty to eat!
I love kids and other dogs and love to play with them. I am not a fan of sudden or loud noises. So I will hang out at the clinic until I feel better and then I will be ready and eager to find my next home. I sure hope my old family makes it.
7/3/20 Update: At this time, we are living in his world: “The World According to Corey.” His antics have us laughing and his manic foster mom’s words have been “Corey, stop. Come. Stop. OK, fine. Corey. Corey. COREY!”
Corey decided to skip that second nap he usually takes after a well-balanced breakfast and dive right into the sprinklers. He even sat on it! The World According to Corey.
Volume down if you don’t want to hear the choir clap or “Corey. Corey. COREY!”
7/14/20 Update: I have been a busy body… so I’ve been told. You see, I got this need to check things out and I sometimes get myself stuck. You know, like going up the stairs and somehow get stuck at the top. It doesn’t look the same going down. You’ve been there, right? Or possibly falling in between the bed and bench. Geez, we’ve all done that, right?
8/2/20 Update: When Corey joined rescue in June, he had some bald spots (alopecia) that needed our attention. There is some improvement and we are hoping the hair will grow back. He gets two weekly medicated baths and some ointment/cream for those areas. As I was told by a 5-year-old, Corey’s small hairless areas “FEEL LIKE A SEAL’S SKIN” (I cannot validate that statement because I personally have never touched a seal.. LOL). To protect Corey’s skin from the sun, we either put him in tanks, shirts or sometimes neck covers for his cowl neck. He loves the extra attention.
9/15/20 Update: Many thanks to Paws and Claws Pet Services for staying at our home to care for my crew while we were gone. They took some great pictures of Corey being Corey.
