Cream Puff, the Corgi ~ Adopted

I apologize in advance for these short posts, but we’re a little short on time! Cream Puff is a tiny little love muffin, who was rescued by Amy Benz and flown to us by a volunteer pilot. She is currently being evaluated here in Deltona, and more information about her temperament will be shared soon.

She is approximately 2 years old, and is heartworm positive. We will being her slow-kill treatment this week, and she’ll be ready to go! Details coming soon!

Cream Puff’s photo album can be viewed on Facebook.

I promised you an update, here’s a Foster Update!
I am Crème Puffs “fairy god mother”… J

Crème Puff is a very sweet girl. She is affectionate and extremely laid back. When she first got to my house, she was possessive but that was gone within 24 hrs. She is not aggressive at all but is not afraid to stand up for herself either. After a day, she was sharing food from the bowl with the other dog and was fine. They are sharing a crate together as well…. The first few nights she preferred to sleep at the foot of the bed with my 14 year old. She went to the vet the other day and that night did not want to be alone, so I put her in the crate with Spike and they like to cuddle together to sleep. When I woke up this morning, they were “spooning”….so cute! Spike (the other dog) gets on her nerves because he likes to play rough – he is still a pup and she does not like rough play and puts him in his place.

She is excellent with the kids (I have a 14, 10, and 7 year old). She plays very gently with them and I have yet to see her nip, etc.  She didn’t like my cat at first but she has gotten used to her. I taught her “leave it” so she would stop chasing her…. She also knows “load up” which is the command to get in the car. She LOVES going on car rides. I was starting to teach “sit” but I am trying to teach 2 to sit at the same time, which is nearly impossible for me. Too much distraction….  I am certain that if her new owner starts “sit” first, she will pick it up in a day or 2. She is certainly smart enough!

She walks VERY well on a leash…there is always slack. I do have a yard and when I take the dogs out to play, she stays right at my side. I would rarely say this but I don’t think this dog really needs a yard. She is not very athletic at all and when I do take her out back, she either walks alongside me or sits at the door and waits to go back inside. She prefers to be in with the family and ONLY wants to go out for potty breaks.

I cannot say this enough – she is the most mellow dog I have ever met. She is quiet and does not bark unless you give her a reason. Even when she is playing, she is calm. She has lots of love to give and is very eager to please her humans. From what I have seen, she is not afraid of anything, including strangers. She will bark if someone comes to the door but I have taken her to the baseball field and she let all of the strangers pet her without hesitation.

05/03/11 Update: Cream Puff has left the building.  Kimberlee Goodson has adopted this little doll, and named her Emmie.  Kimberlee is a school teacher, and did her homework about heartworm disease and treatment options.  She consulted with her vet who is anxious to meet her and discuss the options.  Kimberlee is very confident in Dr. Prather of Winter Garden Animal Hospital, and I’m anxious for updates.  Maria, Cream Puff’s foster was thrilled.  Kimberlee and Cream Puff (Emmie) look so gorgeous together.


This is the first time that Maria DeRosa has fostered for us, and she did an outstanding job.  None of Kimberlee’s questions went unanswered!  I was really impressed.

So welcome our new adopter, the first for this month, and we’re anxious to updates!
