About Corky:
Are you ready to smile? Don’t let my age fool you- I am an energetic, happy guy who is always up for fun times. One look at my waggy tail will surely show you that I am ready to go wherever you’d like to take me. I enjoy walks and am well-mannered on a leash. Plus, when you are ready to relax, I am happy to wind down as I love snuggling on my dog bed. I’m happy to be with my people and can be quite affectionate, but I’m also independent when you need me to be. My foster parents are enamored with my adorable face and delightful personality. They say that it was very easy to add me to their family as I’m just so easy to have around. I get along well with all dogs who I have come in contact with. Since I am in foster care you will need to call or stop in to schedule a time to meet me, please call the staff here at 413 781 4000.
