She had been found by a neighbor and with me being the neighborhood dog expert, I was called. I really didn't want it. At the time I already had 3 canine troublemakers, Sugar, a 13 year old Lab mix, Maggie, a 3 year old purebred Lab, and Angus, a 2 year old Lab/Dachshund/Northern sled dog type mix. I asked what breed of dog my neighbor thought the pup was. She said "pit bull". I knew then that I had to take it, as all animal control did not adopt out pit bull type breeds and instead euthanized them. I called the puppy Tippy Bug. I have no idea why I chose that name, it just fit. Hoping and praying that she was a lost puppy, I began looking for her owners. She was not micro chipped. I even had the vet scan her whole body multiple times. After almost 5 months of no luck, I asked for help from some of my friends in dog rescue to find her a home. Another month went by. By this time I had treated her mange, had all needed vaccines done and obedience trained her. Tippy and my dogs had bonded deeply with each other. One night I was looking for Tippy all over the place. I finally found her asleep, cuddled up against Sugar on Sugar's huge orthopedic bed. Many more weeks went by. After 6 months of her being in my care and looking for her new home, I finally realized something. Tippy already had a home. Somehow that little puppy had wiggled her way into my heart despite all the trouble I went through to keep that from happening. It really is true that you do not choose the dog. The dog chooses you. And I'm thankful every day that Tippy chose me. I love my little girl."

Description

The Corgi Pit is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Welsh Corgi and the American Pit Bull Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
