We have puppies! And, not just any puppies. We have Corgipoo puppies! Talk about adorable!
They were born April 29 and it is now time to send them to their new homes. Wow, how quickly 6 weeks has past!
The parents which I will tell you about in just a minute are our family pets. They are with us in the vineyard and relax on the patio with us. They are wonderful companions!
Bernie, the father, is a mud puddle loving Shih poo. If you asked his thoughts on fatherhood, it would probably be something like, “I could do without the little guys!”
He is actually a bit afraid of them and doesn’t like them coming at him! It doesn’t seem to bother them though, they just keep trying to win dad over.
Bangles had 4 girls and 2 boys. All are the typical tri colored except for one of the boys and one of the girls. They have a typical tri corgi face but their body is mostly white.
Girls rule! They are the four on top!
All of the corgipoo puppies are built like and look like corgies.
Corgies are very smart dogs. They are energetic and were originally bred as herding dogs. For Bangles, that includes cows, chickens and children!
They work great on farms but equally well in apartments – one was a great companion for my elderly mother.
But, they do shed.
What is the benefit of corgipoo puppies?
A corgipoo should not shed.
So, you have the smarts and temperament of both breeds without the shedding.
A shih poo is a shitzu-poodle mix. Both of these breeds are hypoallergenic. This gives corgipoos the great potential to also be hypoallergenic!
The puppy photo session was done so I could list them on craigslist. All puppies were cooperative and just plain cute!
I am excited to say that in 1 1/2 weeks, I had deposits on everyone in our first litter of corgipoo puppies!
I was amazed at how fast they went and have even started a waiting list for the next litter which should be ready around Christmas time!
Let me know if you are interested!
