CCR is elated to welcome Momma C into the family. Momma C and 6 of her Babies were rescued by the village on Saturday, July 9, 2016. We couldn’t of done this rescue without the support of our villagers and their friends! What a family we are!!! Since this time, Momma and 2 of her babies have been residing with a fabulous foster family (1 baby is residing in VA and 3 babies are residing in TX). Daddy was also rescued and has an adopting pending. This Corso family comes into rescue as a result of a confiscation in which the courts awarded custody to animal control. Fortunately, they contacted CCR and the rest is history as once the village knew of the need all were picked up and are happily residing in foster homes.
Momma C is about 3 years of age and whose foster family describes her as an absolute love. Poor girl gave birth to an unknown amount of litters and was obviously used as a breeding machine to provide financial gain for some despicable humans at her expense. Momma C’s breasts are finally drying up and she is beginning to get her girlish figure back. It is all about you now Momma C!!!
Momma C is one smart cookie as after only a week in foster, she already enters her crate well and easily goes potty outside. Several times, she stood by the outside door knob indicating she is well on her way to being house trained. Momma has a good appetite and is finally realizing that food is coming on a regular basis. In the house and out of the crate, she relaxes quickly and falls asleep. She searches out the wind pattern of the ceiling fan which is her place of choice for relaxing. Didn’t we say smart cookie!
Momma C walks well on a leash, but will need additional training to teach her to remain by your side and to address any pulling. Pretty remarkable for a weeks worth of work but anyone who has had a Corso won’t be surprised as we know the level of intelligence in this breed and the deep desire to please their people. Momma comes when calling “Momma” but also responds well to a whistle. She sits and loves to be rubbed. The only jumping that occurs is when encouraged to play. Additional obedience training is needed and desired as she is an eager learner.
True to the breed, Momma C knows her role as guardian and protector of the family. When outside, she performs a perimeter check of the yard and deck alerting her humans of deer and strangers in the immediate area. Momma C remains alert until all are out of her visual field. When people enter the home, she alerts with a bark until her humans convey a ‘stop’ command. Once a proper greeting is conducted, she is all wiggles and giggles, loving everyone! Good girl Momma C!!!
Although there is a Chihuahua/Min Pin mix, Eddy, in the foster home there has not been enough time for a true integration as this takes at least 2 to 3 weeks to accomplish. They are at the stage of seeing each other within the home but always separated by gates and through structured walks with their humans. As of now things are promising that she may do well with small dogs as well as dogs of similar size.
Momma C is sweet, playful, and easy to handle. Yesterday her foster family introduced tennis balls and much to her liking, she ran around the yard with them in her mouth. She loves being rubbed, massaged, and smooched. Her energy level is low to medium. Right now she is sleeping a lot. She is worn out from the shelter, traveling and a new home environment.
Her foster family enjoys her immensely and states she is ” an absolute joy and will make an amazing family member”.
Momma C has been completely vetted, spayed, micro-chipped, and is current on heartworm and flea/tick prevention.
