We can’t resist a cute Corgi butt! Meet Paxton, our Adoptable Dog of the Week. Paxton is a 2-year-old male Pembroke Welsh Corgi mix from Salem, Oregon. He is already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.

Paxton’s Tale:

Hello world! My name is Paxton, but my friends call me Pax and I am about as much fun as I look! I am a 2-year-old Corgi mix looking for a job and a family to call my own! I have lived very nicely with cats in the past and a Corgi sibling but I am scared of other dogs here at the shelter so I would need to meet any canine siblings before coming home with you. I am completely housebroken and just a delightful little guy. I do need to be with older, sturdier kids because I have tried to herd little ones before and they didn’t appreciate that. I will definitely need a job to do. Tons of exercise and mental stimulation are a must. I will love anything and everything as long as it comes with TENNIS BALLS! Won’t you please come see me? And bring a ball!
