Second in this week's series of gravitationally challenged dogs is Ralphie who is a Corgi-Jack Russell Terrier cross. Perhaps the best thing about stumpy legged dogs is they can crawl under the bed to fetch all the crap you need to clean out from beneath there. Sure, some of you are thinking: "Huh, I could just train my two year old kid to do that. Don't need no darn dog," but what're you going to do when that two year old discovers chocolate bars and cola, consumes a truck load and blimps out? Won't fit underneath the bed anymore then, will he? And then who'll be laughing with the clean floor beneath the bed? The guy with the Corgi, that's who. So be a man. Get a Corgi.
Ralphie will also nest on your couch, clean your face and stare at squirrels. Food not included.
Update (2012-01-15): I haven't seen this, but I've been told Ralphie can have a pretty reactionary cage presentation with some people which is why he hasn't been snatched up already. The snarly behaviour goes away, though, once proper introductions are made.
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter.
