animal rescue: coney

In the newest CB2 Spring catalog, we got help from some pretty adorable models—only rescued animals were on-set to help bring awareness to animal shelters and pet adoption.

Coney—a 10+ corgi—comes from St. Louis, where an email from a co-worker was sent in search of a new home for her. Nicknames: C-dog, Cone-star, Cone-dog… but her name is Coney—named after the infamous Detroit hot dog.
Likes: Being anywhere we are… napping in the backyard… herding her ‘peeps’ by bumping our heels/calves with her nose… snuggling her head in our laps.
‘Pet’ peeves: Bad singing, stairs, and people who don’t stop to pet her—she wants to meet everyone!
Favorite toy: Tug-of-war rope.
Favorite napping spot: It’s a tie between her fleece-lined bed where she rests her chin on its walls, or the patio.
Guilty pleasure: Natural Balance small breed treats.
Talent Show: A ridiculously cute begging pose. She sits straight up and flat on her tail-less bottom—it kills us every time.

Cat and dog adoption fast facts:
…approximately 4 million pet dogs and cats are euthanized each year due to overpopulation.
…25% of pet dogs euthanized in animal shelters are purebred.
…adopting a dog or cat from the Humane Society, ASPCA—any rescue group—can save their life.
…and, being a pet owner can add years to your life too.

Awwwww!!!! So happy Coney has a wonderful home. We had our Corgi, KC for over 16 years. He was just the best and it broke our hearts when we lost him. It has been over 4 years and it is still so hard to talk or think about. I hope Coney has many, many wonderful years with her family!

Hello, thanks for featuring a Corgi girl in your catalog.

Is she still available for adoption?

I have a seven year old Corgi boy Winston that needs a friend here in San Diego!.

Take care and keep up the good work!

Love Coney - Just lost my 2nd corgi on Jan. 21st. Chester also hated stairs, but a vacuum was his worst nemesis. He also loved to herd our family from room to room but bumping into our ankles. So glad you rescued Coney - she's beautiful. Enjoy her for many, many years.

Hi Jenn!
Please accept our apologies for the delayed response--

Thankfully Coney has a happy home. However, if you're interested in adopting, we highly recommend the sites and links provided.

On a personal note, last year my family adopted a dog for my 87 year old father from the local ASPCA--and he renamed him Lucky. We all feel extremely fortunate to be together so, all the best to you too!

My daughter has a Corgi...wonderful animal even if her herding can sometime also makes me laugh when it's not ME she's trying to herd.

Wonderful thing you're doing here...pets are a big job...and it's sad that when people realize how much work they are that they get dumped. I've had two rescues that were very evidently being treated poorly; the love from those animals when met with love and affection from a human companion? Priceless.
