I’ve walked hundreds of dogs over the years and most are wonderful in their own way but every so often a priceless gem comes along and no matter how shabby the ‘wrapping’, their inner beauty can’t help but shine bright…Meet Corey, the girl who stole my heart with just one kiss! Despite being let down for years by humans who bred her then left her to fend for herself with an untreated skin condition, from the moment Corey stepped through the Care Center doors this wonderful dog has been nothing but loving, gentle and a-ok with all handling and she even earned praise from our medical staff for being ‘exceptionally calm and sweet’ during her initial exam. Corey loves to snooze the day away on a cushy bed but show her a leash and she’s up and ready to roll, tail wagging eagerly in anticipation of her walk and no wonder as despite it all, she does seem to be quite house trained. Toddling along on adorably stocky legs, she stops often to snuffle over a scent and veers slightly to meet other dogs large and small with a soft body and perky ears. Our photo shoot reveals a gorgeous, wrinkly Bulldog grin and a penchant for softly munching on treats of any kind and when I give her a snuggle and a smooch for a selfie, Corey offers up a surprisingly delicate kiss in return. Needless to say, she rocked her behavior assessment with perfect scores and a great dog-to-dog interaction and now this young superstar is ready to find a new home where instead of making babies, she can be the baby for once, pampered and adored as she deserves. A true beauty both inside and out, Corey is a dream pet who’d fit into any home with ease and she can’t wait to kiss, snuggle and love love LOVE her way into your heart today.
