Hi all,

I've just been offered a government job in St Thomas and am in the process of deciding whether to accept. A major issue is whether my corgi will be able to handle the heat. Can anyone speak to whether they've seen (or if they have) corgis down there? Thanks so much!

There should not be a problem with Corgi. I know a vet who has a Corgi and they live in a an island home with no air conditioning and all is good. The dog is very comfortable and happy.

The Heat you mentioned is highest in August/September at 89-90 degrees and dogs will go to the shade, dig a hole in the dirt, OR lay on the cool tile flooring of your home during the heat of the day. However, 89 degrees is not excessive and never seen a problem with Corgi or other dogs. This time of year is low to mid 80's in daytime.

Welcome to the islands.

You may wish to check airline regulations with regard to bringing your corgi on a commercial flight.
Especially with regards to whether in cabin or in cargo depending on size, weight plus a whole buncha other restrictions.
If you have to fly pet cargo it can only be on a Boeing plane on any leg of journey.

Good luck.
