Pick Me! Pick Me! Fifi is looking for a home of her own

It is always hard for me as a breeder to come to a decision to place a dog I bred and raised and kept for myself as my new show prospect.  As breeders every time we match two dogs together and breed a litter we are hoping for 1st and foremost a healthy happy litter of puppies, secondly we are looking for great companions and finally we are looking for our next show champion, a dog that will contribute to the health and welfare of the breed and be fun to show.  I had hoped Fifi would fit the bill and be a contributor to my program but alas realistically I know that she is a lovely average Cardigan Welsh Corgi and we strive to be above average. 

Fifi has some cosmetic faults that preclude her from being a great show dog or breeding prospect but her virtues are many.  She is cute and smart and all Cardigan.  She completed her Rally Novice title before she was a year old with scores that earned her invitation to the 2013 AKC Rally National Invitational.    She is a moderate girl with correct conformation and could make someone a nice performance dog or even a Jrs dog as I feel she is finishable.

She loves WATER and her pool, she likes to chewies, hooves, rawhides, antlers and to play with stuffy toys.   She is good with other dogs but the only cats we know are the intruder cats in our yard.  We don’t have kids so I have no idea what she would be like around children.  She is good in the house, crate and car.  She is an independent girl and is just as happy hanging out with her “pack” or finding a quiet place to chew a chewie or lounge in her pool.

She can be barky, especially in a new situation.  I have used the forced air pet corrector to reminder her about her inappropriate barking with good success.    She is a thief, we call her Fief sometimes as she will cause a distraction to steal the other dogs chewies (I said she was smart).   Of course she is a cardigan so she is smart enough to get into trouble sometimes.

Fifi is officially known as Solstice Fly Girl, RN CGC. Having earned her Rally title and her Canine Good Citizen designation.  Her parents are Oz, CH Arylan Mint Proof (Winners Dog at the 2010 CWCCA Nationals) and Lindy, CH Arylan Flying Start.  She is 2.5 years old (12/7/2010) and is black and white with brindle points.

I will place her with a spay/neuter contact unless she is going to a potential Jr show home and then a contract will be written with agreeable terms.

Fifi is currently located in El Paso but we are relocating to the Southeast so she will be in the Atlanta, GA area after the 1st   week of June.  If you are looking for a nice Cardigan companion or performance dog let me know.  Please contact me via email right now as I am in transition and I will need to return your call.   My email is solsticecwc@gmail.com  let me know where you are and what a good time to call will be.

I will tell you her sibling sisters, Einie and Mandy B and CH Rider are well loved companions and that her Grandma Ginger is going to miss her Fief around our house when she finds a home of her own.
