    Hey everyone,

    Chloe's puppies will be five weeks old on Friday, and I'm starting to get a little worried, because I haven't gotten any concrete offers from anyone to buy them. I was really hoping to at least get enough money from selling them to pay off the BIG VET BILL :eek: that I have accumulated during Chloes pregnancy, c-section, vet checks etc.

    I have advertised them in the Oregonian (the main paper in Portland), and on various internet classified ads. I'm going to dress them up in bows, put them in a big, cute basket that I have, and do a photo shoot, and distribute their pics. They are so cute that I'm sure no one will be able to resist.

    Any advice?

    Thanks,
    Dena :p

    Both parents and the pups have been vet checked and come with a health guarantee. The only reason I bred Chloe is that one my best friends has a male Corgi, with a great pedigree. This will be her only litter. I don't want to be a breeder.

    I just wanted to let Chloe have one litter of pups, and I'm glad that I did as it has really changed her personality in a positive way being a mom.

    Thanks for your help. :)

    Instead of handing out pictures (you'll get all kinds of horrible problems with an at-large approach), see if your vet will let you post a photo and phone number. Be sure to put a photo of the parents as well, along with a brief information sketch about both. Add a description of the breed, too, since Corgis aren't that well known to many people. You'd be surprised at how many people look at a Corgi and think it's something mixed with a Dachsund.

    That is so true. Many people do now know what Corgis are. I have had some calls the past few days from some farmers who are interested in my puppies for pets and also for herding. Also, a girl from the local 4H is buying one. Thanks for your help.

    The life of a working farm dog could be a wonderful life for your pups. Just make sure the farmers will treat them as family pets as well as working dogs.
