Australian Shepherd / Corgi •
Pokey is a 5 month old Australian Shepherd/Corgi mix! This adorable 25 pound dude traveled from Texas all the way to Ohio to find his forever home! Before arriving into rescue, Pokey suffered from a severe trauma to his back end, resulting in him being unable to control his bladder or bowel movements. Being a baby and incontinent can be tough, but Pokey loves to wear colorful washable diapers! These diapers help keep his bathroom habits under control to live a more normal life as a puppy. He will head off to his forever home with his washable diapers. Don't let his special needs stop you - this boy is FULL of personality. He loves to wiggle and has the biggest, most adorable ears! Pokey loves other dogs and wouldn't mind another furry sibling! He enjoys any attention he receives and would likely do well with kids. Pokey has been through a lot in his short life, but we promised we'd find him his very own forever home. If you want to make Pokey a part of your family, apply online today!
My adoption fee is $350

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals. Please note that our pets come from shelters, so we CANNOT guarantee age, breed, mix of breeds, or adult size.
For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home.
An application does not obligate you to adopt, and can be transferred to any pet. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the pet you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call within 7-10 days. If you would like to transfer your application to a different pet, please submit an adoption application transfer request. You will need the application number and email address from your original application.
We are a foster-based rescue and do not have a shelter location where pets can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a pet in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal. Please note that we do not perform same-day adoptions.
Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!
