Corgis are sturdy little dogs with long bodies, short bowed legs and upright ears
There are two types of Corgis: the Pembroke Welsh corgi and the Cardigan Welsh corgi.
The most notable difference is that the Pembroke does not have a tail
Both originated in Wales but in different counties, resulting in their different names.
Both the Pembroke Welsh corgi and the Cardigan Welsh corgi were bred for the same purpose, to herd cattle by nipping at their heels
Corgi Means Dwarf Dog in Welsh
Welsh legend said corgis are “enchanted dogs” ridden by fairies and elves
They make good family pets.
The Pembroke corgi is the more popular and is Queen Elizabeth’s favorite dog breed.
The Pembroke is part of the Spitz group while the Cardigan is related to the Dachshund.
They are about 10-12” at the shoulders and weight between 24 – 38 pounds with the Cardigan being a little bigger and heavier
While the popular Pembroke Welsh corgi is sociable and outgoing the Cardigan Welsh corgi is more laid back and reserved
