Pembroke Welsh Corgi/Chihuahua mix - Male - 2 years old - 21 lbs.

Buzz is a small, male dog that weighs 21-lbs. and has a typical Corgi type coat of fur that will require regular brushing but little professional grooming.  He is a happy, friendly and perky, little dog that appears quite smart and fun to work with.  Do not let his small size fool you, he is not a couch potato and is vigilant, affectionate and quite intelligent.  Buzz enjoys the company of other dogs but we have no history of his behavior around cats and smaller children.  He is an agile little guy and loves to play with soft toys.  He appears to have a lot of potential for an active household.  Buzz came into the shelter with 1/2 of his left ear missing and what appears to have been an injury (now well healed) to the left side of his face.  It does not, however, detract from his cuteness.  Buzz is currently in training in the Inmate Dog Alliance Project of Idaho (IDAPI Program) and will be graduating on Saturday, April 14, 2012.

This dog is currently in training in the Inmate Dog Alliance Project of Idaho (IDAPI Program) where he/she lives with and is trained by inmates at one of the Idaho correctional centers.  During this two-month period, the dogs live with the inmates in a prison setting and are trained daily in basic obedience and are also house and crate trained.  The dogs are frequently taught a number of fun tricks such as shake with both paws, bow, spin, speak, sit up, crawl, wave and many times can also perform some agility commands.  They are also learn to be good indoor companions while at the same time, they get to interact, play and bond with the other dogs in the program.  At the end of the training period, these dogs are evaluated to make sure that they have been trained to do all of their stated commands.    To apply for one of these dogs, you must complete an IDAPI application and, if selected as a potential adopter, a phone interview will be conducted prior to the dog’s graduation.  If chosen, you will then be asked to attend a 2-hour workshop where you will meet the dog and also learn the commands that the dog knows and how to work with him/her.  If you are interested in applying for this dog or any dog in the IDAPI program, please contact Dee at the Idaho Humane Society and request an application.  The phone number is 208/331-8552 and the e-mail address is:  dfugit@idahohumanesociety.org .
