Cora was rescued several months before her 8th birthday. She was used to birth litter after litter, sadly producing just one healthy puppy her final time. She had countless health issues, with little idea of what it was like to be truly loved. But that didn’t change Cora. Her heart is as pure as they come, filled with boundless love she freely gives to everyone around her.
When Madison Palm met the little Corgi, she had only planned to foster her, but then realized there was no way she could ever let Cora go. The sweet little Corgi has a gift, a way of connecting with people she has just met. So Madison decided to have her trained to be a therapy dog.
“Cora’s personality is so amazing; she is a lover,” Madison told The Dodo. “She is always right next to me and always keeps a close eye if she’s not. If I’m not available she’ll pick the next closest lap to sit on and nudges your hand unless you are petting her at all times. She is SO sweet and that is usually the first thing people say about her. Her gentle and kind nature never goes unnoticed.”
Madison and Cora love to be out and about. Cora loves to meet all sorts of new people. Recently, they were delayed at the airport. And just as Madison suspected, Cora didn’t mind one bit. She kept busy people-watching, eager to say hello to anyone who came close to give her a proper pat.
That’s when Cora saw someone very special. A passenger who needed her love more than anyone else.
“Cora just kind of walked around in our little seating area and said hi to everyone who was walking by and sitting near us,” Madison said. “She was taking a snooze so I let go of her leash briefly while I relaxed and had a snack; that is when she woke up and snuck over to him. Before I could even call her she was already at his feet being loved on.”
Madison watched, concerned Cora might be bothering the traveler. But when she asked, he made it very clear that Cora wasn’t bothering him in the least.
“I asked him if she was bothering him and with a somber face and watery eyes he said, ‘No, no; I lost my dog last night.’ He scratched behind her ears, patted her on the back and was whispering how cute she was. He took out his phone to snap a photo and she sat directly in front of him facing him and staying perfectly still for it.”
Cora understood that a stranger needed her love, in spite of being unloved most of her life. Cora’s gift for empathy and compassion brought a man who needed comfort some relief after losing his best furry friend.
“She knows who is hurting and she knows who needs her. I’ve never questioned that,” Madison said. “I am blown away by her on a daily basis. Who knew a dog who was unloved for seven and a half years could have so much love to give?”
