Pembroke Welsh Corgi
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a very old breed of dog originally from Wales. Its role has always been to protect herds of cattle and to keep firm against intruding pests.
This small, short-legged dog has long, pointed, erect ears on the top of its head. Its character is rather joyful and emotional. Because of its size, it can live in an apartment.
An ancient breed with origins going back to the 10th century and used to herd and guard ponies, geese and cows, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is also a favorite of the Queen of England, Elisabeth II.
The town of Pembrokeshire is the origin of the Pembroke Corgi at one time there was a tax on owning a dog and this tax was calculated on the length of the dog from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. The owners of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi started to practice the docking of the tails to avoid paying some of the taxes. As time went on, it was decided that the look of the docked tail was preferred and bred for. It is now possible to have pups born tail-less.
From 10 to 12 inches high, this little dog is no less adorable, friendly and affectionate. With its ears are erect and rounded, its eyes are round and brown, its head is flat and the stop is slightly defined, the Corgi''s head looks like a fox. Its hair is medium in length and its coat can be black and tan, red, fawn or sable with or without white on their paws, neck, chest and sometimes the head and nose. The Pembroke is different to the Cardigan in that it has a short tail.
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is typically a short coated breed, but it is not uncommon to get a long-coated dog. These long-coated dogs are commonly called a "fluffy" or a "floofy." They are much like the White German Shepherd Dog in regards to being considered a "disgrace" to the breed; breeders are encouraged to put them down.
This animal, still used as a sheepdog, is also a companion animal who adapts perfectly to its master. Despite its short legs, this dog is robust and not afraid of sport. But if you are more of a stay-at-home kind of person then this little companion will adapt to it and will come ask for pats on the sofa. The most important thing for him is that his master is as loyal as he is. In fact, despite its mischievous and sometimes stubborn attitude, the Corgi is made to live in a family, in contact with "its" humans, to which its close and respectful. Its also friendly with its fellow dogs. This little dog mixes intelligence with a love of life everyday.
The Corgi lives an average of 15 years and only needs a little upkeep, especially with its weight of 22 to 26 pounds. In fact, being overweight could be bad for its back, and even fatal. For its back, you need to be careful with its activities during the first year.
Like all dogs, they know how to make puppy-dog eyes to get what they want. However, its expressive face helps you communicate well with your companion.
The exact origin of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is still under debate. We have found Spitz roots to this dog but we don''t know is the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a descendant of the Swedish Vallhund or if it''s closer to the Schipperkes.
