Immer Essen Farm puppies are usually DM Clear - very occasionally DM Free.
All puppies born at Immer Essen Farm are not genetically at risk for degenerative myelopathy
(since DNA testing for susceptibility to this condition became available in late 2008)
and have good pedigrees and parent health certification backgrounds.
They are never at risk for EIC and are all clear for vWD.
We occasionally have an adult available for adoption,
but you must be close enough to come for 2 visits.
You must have a fenced yard, have previously lived
with a corgi, and have veterinary references.
There are adoption fees.
Often, we have people tell us they do not have a regular fence,
but they have or are planning to install invisible fencing.
We don't understand the use of invisible fencing, as it does not
protect the puppy from potential attackers or sources of disease
who are free to come onto the property.

with electric fencing.

Our puppies are able to leave here after their first set of shots at 8 weeks, but new owners must be aware that puppies are not fully protected from diseases such as parvo until after their 16 week shots because of possible interference with the vaccine from maternal antibodies. This is the reason why walking in public areas at a young age is discouraged. Here is a link to a site that may give you a better understanding of how this works:

Pricing for corgi pups with neuter/spay agreement is generally $1950. Puppies with breeding papers are generally $4500 and are sold rarely and only by special agreement. We prefer to sell our puppies to homes where they will be pets. Our puppies are brought up in the home and sleep in the house - we spend a lot of time and lose a lot of sleep on their crate training so they will be good family members, and we will not place a puppy in a home where it will be kept outdoors full-time. Please be aware that if you rent your home, we will require a copy of your lease showing that a dog is permitted.
If you are inquiring about adopting an older corgi, we will only consider adoptions where the adopter has already lived with a corgi in the past, is not in an apartment, and has a fenced yard. Our corgis spend their lives here in a very rural setting and are not exposed to traffic or regular leash walking. Our ideal new family already has one of our corgis in the home!
While we do not have a
big show name, we do have top show lines and high
health certification standards - Our corgis are
all tested for vWD and have acceptable eye
evaluations. We use PennHip and/or OFA for
hip certifications. Our corgis are all
tested with the new DNA test for degenerative
myelopathy risk factor* and we are producing only
puppies that are not at risk for DM. We have
all DM Clear (and 2 DM Free) Pembroke Welsh
Corgis. Our Corgis have excellent pedigrees,
with many champion forebears. Puppies are
vaccinated at 8 weeks, 12 weeks, and 16 weeks, and
wormed regularly from 2 weeks of age. Our
veterinarian generally checks them over at 7 to 8
weeks of age, and they are ready to leave for
their new homes between 8 and 9 weeks. All
puppies are now microchipped before leaving.
Parents and often grandparents (and even great
grandparents) are on the premises and waiting to
meet you. As of 2020, we have been breeding
corgis for over 23 years. For your interest,
you can confirm any breeder's claims to OFA hip
certification and the recording of many other
exams and tests by going to the OFA website and
proceeding with an Advanced Search - click here!
We are located midway
between Knoxville and Chattanooga in Southeastern
TN, about 15 minutes from the Sweetwater exit of
I75. We are about 3 hours from Atlanta,
Georgia; 2 hours from Nashville, Tennessee;
and 3 hours from Asheville, North Carolina.
We are no longer doing any shipping - all puppies must be picked up.
How Immer Essen Farm puppies are brought up:
Our puppies are born in our bedroom and live there for about the first 3 weeks of their lives, after which they and their mom are moved into a family room of the house where they will be able to continue their socialization. At around 4 to 5 weeks, they are taken outside for "potty" several times a day, and between 5 and 6 weeks they pretty consistently no longer soil the home box. Crate training is started at 6 weeks so that they will be accustomed to a crate in their new homes. At this point, puppies go out for potty and people play in the morning, come back into the house for breakfast, and then go out again a bit later to spend the day in a play area, where snacks are served. They come back in the house in the evening for dinner and then are taken out around 11 p.m. for the last potty and people play session, coming back in to their crates until the morning. This routine has resulted in well socialized and clean AKC Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppies.
We would like to urge all prospective neuter/spay pet people to forget everything they ever heard or knew about male versus female dogs as pets and consider selecting a boy pup for their new pet corgi. We have been absolutely amazed at the friendly, low-key, companionable nature of the male corgis. We've seen no inappropriate sexual habits or displays from our boys, nor any of the bad habits which we have heard attributed to male dogs - the corgi boys are true and honest friends and are generally somewhat less mischievous than the corgi girls. We have added this note because we think it is both sad and unfair that so many people are unaware of the wonderful nature of the boys and can be prejudiced against them - and corgi boys do tend to be marvelous!
Do you suspect your corgi may be getting pudgy? Do you have questions about the proper amount to feed your corgi?

* While around 60% of all Pembroke Welsh Corgis tested have been found to be "at risk" for degenerative myelopathy, a small percentage of these "at risk" dogs actually do develop the disease
(perhaps because they succumb earlier to another disease or accident), which occurs late in life.
However, if you have gone through it with a loved Corgi, you don't want to go through it again!
