Corndog or Corny arrived at our shelter after he was found injured from being shot in one of his legs.   We rallied our supporters and were able to raise money to have him seen at the Emergency Veterinary Clinic and be treated.  Unfortunately his leg could not be saved and he became a tripod.  This has not slowed him down one bit! Below are some notes on our special guy! Please note that he was temporarily in a foster home however had to come back to the shelter once his foster family was leaving the area for the winter season. We are so thankful for all that they did for him! 

 

-Corndog LOVES meeting new people and only wants to please you and receive love! He does like to lick you but will stop if you tell him to.  Also likes to snuggle and play! 

Corndog is one of those dogs that loves having one paw touch you when he is nearby. 

 

-He is extremely smart and trains very easily. In his foster home he had no problem staying off of the furniture once he was told no and that he had a dog bed of his own nearby. 

 

-Corndog need a physical fence. He was mostly likely allowed to roam in his previous life and having an enclosed yard not only prevents him from wandering off, it also prevents other dogs or larger animals from harassing him.  He also panics when you place him on a tie out-we believe this could be from some past trauma and do not believe he should be placed on one. 

 

-He is crate trained and during his stay in a foster home had no problem going into his crate when it was time for bed or when left at home alone. 

 

-Corndog’s previous foster family would say he was potty trained.  They put him on a schedule as soon as he arrived which helps any animal adjust to their new surroundings.  He always alerted them when he needed to go outside and never had an accident in the home or in the kennel.  Sometimes he did like his human to go outside with him.  We suspect this was because everything was so new (a little separation anxiety) and that over time, in a stable and consistent environment, this behavior would probably pass. 

 

-He enjoyed being in the kitchen during meal prep but strictly observed; he was not a beggar.  

 

-Tends to be a grazer with his food.

 

Things he is working on:

 

-Leash walking/collars: Mostly likely he never experienced these things in his past unless in a negative way. We are working on him with his sensitivities and will share info with prospective adopters. 

 

-Getting into a vehicle: Once in a car/truck, Corndog is fine. But the act of getting inside is what seems to hold him up at times.  Time and patience will help with this. 

 

-Chasing vehicles: this behavior is quite common for dogs that were allowed to roam at one time.  Time and practice on leash using beginner obedience commands will help stymie this behavior but he may need to work on it for his lifetime. 

 

-Brooms/mops/vacuums: These things are probably foreign to Corny.  He does not bark or anything at them; simply retreats to his kennel until you are finished using the item. 

Likes to chew so needs appropriate chew toys!
