It's a fitting title for these compact pups, who are famous for their miniature legs and tiny tails. But there's so much more to corgis than their short stature. Corgis, which were corgi bred to herd cattle, sheep, and horses, are great with kids, are extremely loyal, and are known to be eager to please. Ideally, you'll always want to try to adopt your corgi, and you can find plenty of fluffy balls of happiness by searching for the breed in So read these 55 facts about corgis from a corgi owner and go get yourself a corgi (or, even cuter, a corgi puppy!).

We guarantee you'll be glad corgi did. 1. Corgi Means "Dwarf Dog" The word "corgi" translates to "dwarf dog" in Welsh, which is basically what they are.

Most corgis stand between 10 and 12 inches tall and weight between 23 and 28 pounds. And if you've ever spent any time around a corgi, you'll know their short statures are part of what makes them so incredibly endearing. 2. There Are Two Separate Types of Corgi Dogs Shutterstock Yes, corgis evolved into two distinct breeds, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, which weren't recognized as separate breeds until the 1930s.

The Pembroke tends to be the more popular corgi breed. Queen Elizabeth II's corgis are of the Pembroke variety. 3. Corgi Dogs Have a Fascinating History Pembroke Welsh corgis go back as far as the 10th century, and it's believed that the Vikings corgi Flemish weavers brought them home from Wales to use as herding dogs.

According to Welsh legend, fairies used them to pull their coaches or ride them into battle, and if you look closely, you can still find fairy markings on their backs. So they are actually magical. 4. Both Corgi Breeds Have Tails Some Corgi Welsh Corgis are born with super-short tails, and the ones that don't generally have them docked between two and five days old due to historical tradition (though, in many countries, docking has become illegal).

The Cardigan Welsh Corgis, on the other hand, have lush, long tails that make them look even more like foxes. They also tend to be more reserved. A common joke among corgi handlers is that if there were a party, Cardigans would be the ones opening the door and Pembrokes would corgi the ones having a pool party out in the back. 5. Corgis Have a Lifespan of 12 to corgi years Shutterstock On average, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years.

They are relatively healthy dogs, and many of the issues the breed has a history of developing are non-life threatening. 6. Corgis Are Smart Corgis have great logistical and trouble-shooting skills, since it takes a fair amount of analytical work to herd sheep.

The challenge this presents is that they always need something to work on or some sort of task to accomplish, otherwise they're liable to get bored and act out. Luckily, there are plenty of dog puzzles out there to occupy brilliant canines. And it's a lot of fun having a smart dog! I taught mine how to play the shell game (in which you hide a little ball under three identical cups that are face-down and then shuffle them around and make so the player has to remember which one the ball is hiding under), and he wins two out of every three times.

I'm pretty sure I could teach him chess if I really wanted to. 7.


Corgis Are Corgi Hypoallergenic Shutterstock Corgis are not hypoallergenic. They are double-coated and they shed a lot. With shedding comes more dander, a common allergen found in dogs and cats. So if you've got allergies, it's best to get a different type of animals (or head to your allergist, so you can still have a corgi). 8. Do Corgis Shed? Yes, one of the only two flaws of the corgi is that they shed so much you can make another corgi out of one. These dogs have a double coat that consists of an inner layer of short fur and an outer layer of longer fur.

A corgi will shed their undercoat once a year, usually in the spring. Every time I sweep up my apartment it looks like Father Time blazed through the living room. But the upside is that they are oh-so-fluffy!

9. Do Corgis Have Health Problems? Shutterstock Corgis are generally healthy dogs, although they are somewhat predisposed to degenerative myelopathy (gradual progressive paralysis of limbs), cataracts (an eye condition), hip dysplasia (due to their poorly developed hip joints), senility, cancer, and general obesity. Take your corgi to the vet on a regular basis to keep him or her healthy.

10. How Big Do Corgis Get? Shutterstock Adult Pembroke Welsh corgis are about 10 to 12 inches tall and weigh anywhere from 23 to 28 pounds. They reach their full size at about a year of age, although some keep filling out until age two or three. 11. Are Corgis Cuddly? Corgis are also notoriously cuddly.

All dogs are different, and their personalities often match that of their owners, so the fact that my corgi is a cuddle fiend is probably due to the fact that I'm intensely affectionate as well. When I wake up in the morning, mine ( shown above) does a little army crawl up to my pillow, curls up beside me, and then wiggles until there is not a centimeter between our bodies.

It provides an oxytocin rush that lasts me the entire day. 12. Are Corgis Easy to Train? Yes, corgis are smart, obedient, and they aim to please, which is super for training. It took mine 10 minutes to learn "Sit" and another 15 to get "Shake." And he loved every moment of it. 13. Are Corgis Good With Other Pets? Corgis are very sociable and they're good with other animals, but they especially love other dogs.

There are corgi meetups happening every month all across the country, where corgi owners bring their dogs together for an corgi gathering of hundreds of corgis, who greet one another by gently booping noses as though to say, "How do you do, sir?" Even when a fight breaks out it's kind of funny because they look like two teddy bears trying to wrestle on their hind legs, and they always inspire tons of "This is Sparta" memes.

14. Are Corgis Good With Kids? It's corgi known trait of the breed, so long as everyone in the family still corgi them plenty of attention. But kids love to play, and so do corgis, so it's a match made in heaven. 15. What Is a Corgi's Personality? Corgis have big personalities. They are by no means wallflowers. Because they are smart and love attention, they are the life of the party.

Each one has its own equally unique and equally loud personality. Some people find this exhausting, but it makes them seem even more like humans. Mine is so human-like that I often find myself thinking I should text him to let him know I'll be home late.

And several of them have such big personalities that they even have massively popular video channels in which they go to work or surf Tinder, like Topi the Corgi. Seriously, someone give this dog an Oscar! 16. The Queen Has Owned More Than 30 Royal Corgis Since 1945 If corgis weren't the absolute best, why would Queen Elizabeth have famously had more than 30 of them in her lifetime?

But it also helps that corgis have a royal air about them as well. When you do or say something they don't like, they flash you an indignant look, then whip their faces to the side as if to say, "Good day, sir." It's why they are so perfectly suited to names that are generally given to British lords, like Winston, Sherlock (my corgi's name), and Benedict Cumberbatch.

20. The Corgi Sploot Is the Best Thing Ever A sploot is a type of special corgi when corgis splay their little paws out and their butts look like two chicken wings that you have the unbearable urge to squeeze.

The name "corgi" is derived from the Welsh words "cor" and "ci" (which is mutated to ‘gi’), meaning "dwarf" and "dog", respectively. Two separate breeds are recognized: the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. There are physical differences between the two different breeds. According to the breed standards, overall the Cardigan is larger, both in weight and height. Their tails are of different shapes, and docking had previously been performed.

Historically, the Pembroke has been attributed to the influx of dogs alongside Flemish weavers from around the 10th century, while the Cardigan is attributed to the dogs brought with Norse settlers, in particular a common ancestor of the Swedish Vallhund. The Pembroke is the more popular of the two, yet still appears on The Kennel Club's vulnerable dog breeds of the United Kingdom list.

[6] The Pembroke Welsh Corgi gained in popularity because the Queen has personally owned more than 30 Pembrokes or Corgi- Dachshund crosses, known as dorgis. Contents • 1 History • 1.1 United States • 2 Modern breeds • 2.1 Cardigan Welsh Corgi • 2.2 Pembroke Welsh Corgi • 3 Health • 4 Cultural impact • 5 Notes • 6 References • 7 External links History [ edit ] Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire are adjoining historical agricultural counties in South West Wales.

[7] Welsh Corgis were cattle herding dogs; corgi type of herding dog referred to as "heelers", meaning that they would nip at the heels of the larger animals to keep them on the move.

[8] The corgi of their low height off the ground and the innate agility of Welsh Corgis would allow them to avoid the hooves of cattle. [8] The term "Corgi" means either cur dog or dwarf dog ( cor = dwarf, gi = lenitive of ci, dog) in the Welsh language, which was not intended as an insult to the dog's size, rather as a purely descriptive term.

[7] [9] Different tales have been told of the Corgi's origin: some believe that the two modern breeds evolved from shared ancestry, [10] while others attribute the import of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi to Flemish weavers starting around the 10th century. [11] Further theories on the origin of the Pembroke variety suggest that they may have originated from central European herding breeds from the area around modern Germany.

Depending on the time period when these dogs were imported to Wales, they could have been either Deutsche Bracken or Dachshund. [9] The Cardigan Welsh Corgi has been attributed to the influences of Nordic settlers in the region. [12] Dogs of similar corgi exist in modern Scandinavia, corgi the Swedish Vallhund, [13] and it is claimed by some historians that these two breeds share a common ancestor.

[14] In the late 19th century, farmers began corgi switch from cattle to sheep but the corgi is not suited for working sheep.

Similarities between the Welsh Corgis have been attributed to cross-breeding between the two, or simply selected breeding from those who wished to have the Cardigan variety appear closer in nature to the Pembroke.

[14] The first recorded date for Corgis appearing in the show ring in Wales is 1925. Captain J. P. Howell called together a meeting of breeders of both the Corgi and the Cardigan varieties and formed the Welsh Corgi Club, with an initial membership of 59 members. A general breed standard was drawn up, and Corgis began to appear in conformation shows. Until this point, neither breed had been specifically bred for looks.

Members of this club were primarily interested in the Pembroke variety, although the Cardigan variety also appeared. At that point the breeds were referred to as the Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire varieties; the names corgi later shortened.

There were a number of disputes corgi breeders of the two types in early shows, as judges who were breeders of one type would often favor them. [15] The Welsh Corgi appeared at Crufts for the first time in 1927. [16] The first Championship was awarded at a Cardiff show in 1928, to a red and white Pembroke bitch named Shan Fach.

The breeds continued to be judged together until 1934 when The Kennel Club recognized each breed separately. In that initial registration, some 59 Cardigans and 240 Pembrokes were listed in the pedigree books. The decisions about the breed to which each dog belonged were sometimes left corgi the owners, who were free to choose whichever they felt was the most appropriate. [15] The first dog to be named Best in Show at an open conformation show was Ch.

Bowhit Pivot. [17] Cardigan Welsh Corgis continued to be rarer than Pembrokes, with only 11 registrations made in 1940. Both breeds survived the Second World War, although the Cardigans registered with the Kennel Club numbered only 61 by the end of the war. [15] Pembrokes became very popular during the post war years in the United Kingdom; in 1953 it was ranked as the fourth most popular breed by the Kennel Club, behind the English Cocker Spaniel, the German Shepherd and the Pekingese.

[18] In 1955, the reserve Best in Show at Crufts was the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Kaytop Maracas Mint. [19] The Corgi breeds declined in popularity: veterinary physician Brian Singleton suggested in The Times in 1963 that this was due to issues with their temperament.


{INSERTKEYS} [20] The Cardigan Welsh Corgi was listed in the Kennel Club's first list of Vulnerable Native Breeds in 2006. [21] This list is for those breeds which register less than 300 dogs in any one year; [22] there had been 84 Cardigan Corgis registered in 2006.

After an initial increase, this declined to 46 in 2010, but then rose to the highest numbers since the list began in 2015, with a total of 124 puppies registered. [21] In 2013, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi was also added, as there had been only 241 puppies registered that year.

While the Kennel Club blamed this on the importation of foreign dog breeds, [22] The Daily Telegraph blamed the decline on the ban on tail docking introduced six years before. [23] However, 2015 saw an increase of 34% in the number of Pembroke registrations; the popularity of Corgis on Instagram was credited for the change.

Pembrokes were removed from the Vulnerable Native Breeds list in 2016. [24] [25] United States [ edit ] In 1933 the first Welsh Corgis were brought to the United States by American breeder Mrs. Lewis Roesler, for her Merriedip Kennels in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts. She had previously been well known for breeding Old English Sheepdogs. Roesler purchased a Pembroke corgi, Little Madam, at London's Paddington Station for £12. Wanting a mate for the dog, she visited several Corgi kennels and bought a dog called Captain William Lewis.

The American Kennel Club (AKC) first registered Welsh Corgis in 1934, as a single breed, and Little Madam was the first registered animal of the breed. The first litter was registered later that year, by Mr. E.M. Tidd in Oakland, California, from a bitch named Toots which he had purchased in Canada. [17] Tidd imported Ch.

Bowhit Pivot for his breeding lines in 1935, registering him with the AKC as Sierra Bowhit Pivot. In addition to his British titles, he became the first Corgi to be awarded the Champion status in the US, and the first such dog to be named Best of Group at a conformation show in the United States. A month after those achievements, Little Madam repeated his victories. [ clarification needed] The Pembroke Welsh Corgi club was formed in 1937, [17] and the first show was held at Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge's Giralda Farms in New Jersey.

Following the Second World War, there were imports from the United Kingdom, including Rozavel Uncle Sam which dominated the show circuit for Corgis. In 1949, he became the first Pembroke winner of Best in Show at an open conformation show in the United States. By 1998, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi had become the 37th most popular breed of dog in the United States. {/INSERTKEYS}


{INSERTKEYS} [26] A pair of Cardigan Welsh Corgis were imported to the US in 1931, but the first member of that breed to be registered with the AKC was Blodwen of Robinscroft in 1935. They have never had the draw in the United States given to the Corgis of the Pembroke type.

In 1997, some 752 Cardigan Welsh Corgis were registered with the AKC, compared to 8,281 of the Pembrokes. [26] Modern breeds [ edit ] A Cardigan Welsh Corgi ( left) and a Pembroke Welsh Corgi ( right) There are two breeds of Welsh Corgis, the Cardigan and the Pembroke, each named for the county in Wales where it originated.

The dogs share several similar traits, such as their coats, which are water-resistant and shed on average twice a year. The body of the Cardigan is slightly longer than that of the Pembroke; both breeds have short legs, placing their bodies close to the ground.

[11] [12] But they are not as square in outline as a typical Terrier, or have an elongated body as great as that of a Dachshund. [27] There are only minor differences in the shape of the head, both appear fox-like.

The head of a Cardigan Welsh Corgi is typically larger than that of an equivalent Pembroke and has a larger nose. [1] It can take a few days following birth for the true color of a Corgi's coat to appear, and this is particularly evident in those with tricolor or black and tan markings. [27] Corgis in the modern era often compete in dog agility trials, obedience, showmanship, flyball, tracking, and herding events.

Herding instincts and trainability can be measured at non-competitive herding tests. Cardigan and Pembroke Corgis exhibiting basic herding instincts can be trained to compete in herding trials – known colloquially as a "mad run". {/INSERTKEYS}


{INSERTKEYS} [28] Welsh Corgis were once used to guard children. [13] Cardigan Welsh Corgi [ edit ] A Cardigan Welsh Corgi The differences between the two breeds include bone structure, body length, and size. Cardigans are the larger of the two breeds, with large rounded ears and a 12-inch-long (30 cm) fox-like, flowing tail set in line with the body.

[10] Though the Cardigan is allowed more colors than the Pembroke, white should not predominate in its coat. [29] The Cardigan is a double-coated dog where the outer coat is dense, slightly harsh in texture, and of medium length. The dog's undercoat is short, soft, and thick. [13] According to the breed standard, the breed stands between 10.5–12.5 inches (27–32 cm) at the withers, and should weigh between 30–38 pounds (14–17 kg).

The skeletal structure of the Cardigan differs from the Pembroke, in that there is a more exaggerated bend in the front two legs, which fits around the ribcage of the animal. In addition, the Cardigan is more heavily set than the Pembroke, with denser bone mass.

[1] There are a greater number of colors of coat present in the Cardigan breed than the Pembroke, with the breed standard allowing for a variety of shades of red, sable, and brindle.

White markings are expected on this breed of Corgi, and one with a black coat is allowed to have tan or brindle points under conformation show rules. Merle markings are present in the breed, although this is normally restricted to blue merle. [2] There are several disqualification criteria in the breed standard for the purpose of confirmation shows. This would include drop ears, a white coat, blue eyes, or non-solid black noses in dogs without merle coloration.

[30] Pembroke Welsh Corgi [ edit ] Two-year-old tricolor Pembroke Welsh Corgi Pembrokes feature pointed ears, [8] and are somewhat smaller in stature than the Cardigan. They are low-set, intelligent, strong, and sturdy with stamina sufficient to work a day on the farm.

[29] The common height at the withers is between 10–12 inches (25–30 cm), while a male dog of this breed should weigh no more than 30 pounds (14 kg), and a female 25 pounds (11 kg). [1] The tail is shorter than that of a Cardigan, which can be accomplished through breeding or docking.

[29] Historically, the Pembroke was a breed with a natural bob tail (a very short tail), and today, if the Pembroke has a tail at all, it is usually curly. [ citation needed] Due to the advent of tail docking in dogs, [8] the bobtail was not aggressively pursued, with breeders focusing instead on other characteristics, and the tail artificially shortened if need be. Given that some countries now ban docking, some breeders are again attempting to select dogs with the genes for natural bob tails.

[31] Fewer colors of coat appear in the Pembroke breed. These include red, sable, tan, fawn, and black, each of which can be with or without white markings. Plain white or grey coats can also be seen, but these would be considered to be a serious fault for the purposes of confirmation shows.

[2] However, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi has no specific disqualification criteria present in the breed standard. [30] Pembroke Welsh Corgis have two coats that vary in length along their body. The first coat is a shorter, inner coat that is resistant to harsh weather, while the outer coat is rougher and longer, but still of medium length. The length of the coat differs on various parts of the body. Fur tends to be longer and thicker behind their fore and hind legs, as well as underneath their bodies.



In addition, they appear to have more voluminous fur on their chest, neck, and shoulders. Pembroke Welsh corgis have shedding coats. [32] Health [ edit ] Pembroke Welsh Corgi at Corgi Symphony, 2019 According to the Kennel Club Purebred Dog Health Survey conducted in 2004, the two breeds had similar average lifespans: the median age at death was 12 years 3 months for Pembrokes, and 12 years 2 months for Cardigans.

The main causes of death were similar in both breeds: the primary causes were canine cancer and old age. However, the Pembroke breed showed a higher proportion of deaths attributed to either kidney failure or urethral obstruction. [3] [4] The survey showed that the breeds suffer from similar rates of ongoing health conditions, with one exception. Whereas more than a quarter of Pembroke Welsh Corgis surveyed suffered from some type of eye condition, only corgi of the Cardigan Corgis did.

[3] [4] Eye conditions typical in the Corgi breeds include progressive retinal atrophy, which occurs more often corgi dogs over six years of age, and canine glaucoma, which again is more common in older dogs. [33] Cataracts in corgi are treatable with cataract extraction.

[34] Similar percentages in the survey were seen in both breeds for issues relating to reproduction, such as requiring caesarian sections and having false pregnancies. Further similarities were also seen related to musculoskeletal issues, including arthritis. [3] [4] However, Hip dysplasia, common in some types of dogs, is rare in the Corgi breeds. [33] Cultural impact [ edit ] The Queen Mother Memorial bronze on The Mall, by Paul Day, shows her with two Corgis.

Queen Elizabeth II has long been associated with Corgis. After a visit to Thomas Thynne, 5th Marquess of Bath in 1933, Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret made it well known to their family that they liked the Corgis owned by the Marquess. [35] [36] Their father, Prince Albert, Duke corgi York (later George VI), purchased the Pembroke Corgi Rozavel Corgi Eagle, from the Rozavel kennels in Surrey.

It was renamed Dookie. [37] Princess Elizabeth was then given a Pembroke Corgi of her own, named Susan, for her 18th birthday in 1944. [38] She had a strong connection to the dog, which was hidden under rugs in the Royal Carriage following her wedding to Prince Philip. [39] Susan became the progenitor of all the Corgis owned by the Royal Household since. The Queen has bred ten generations of dogs from Susan, owning personally more than 30 of the dogs which were either pure-bred Pembroke Welsh Corgis or crossbreed Corgi/Dachshunds called Dorgis.

[40] [41] It was reported in 2018 that the last of the Corgis belonging to Queen Elizabeth had died. [42] Corgis have also appeared on screen, stage and in novels. Corgis as characters were incorporated into the storybook fantasies Corgiville Fair, The Great Corgiville Kidnapping, and Corgiville Christmas of American author and illustrator Tasha Tudor.

[43] In 1963, a Corgi corgi featured in the Walt Disney film Little Dog Lost, [44] which led to an increase in popularity for the breed within the United States. [45] A theatrical adaptation took place of Welsh author Roald Dahl's The Corgi which toured the UK in 1991 required several different Corgis to perform on stage as those of Queen Elizabeth.

[46] The Queen's Corgi is corgi Belgian animated film depicting the Queen's Corgi. In the anime Cowboy Bebop, the crew corgi a super-intelligent Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Ein, on their ship. [47] The Top Shelf graphic novel Korgi plays on the folklore tradition of the Corgi as a faerie draft animal. It features the "Mollies" ( fairy-like beings) who live in close relationship with the land and their Korgi friends, who are based on and resemble the Welsh Corgi breeds.

[48] The American animated TV series Infinity Train features a country of anthropomorphic corgis known as Coriginia ruled by King Atticus, styled "Uniter of the Cardigans and Pembrokes".

They were an asset to farmers, specializing in herding cattle and sheep. Some believe that the Pembroke Welsh Corgi descended from Swedish cattle dogs dogs that the Corgi brought to Britain during the 9th and 10th centuries. Corgi think that the breed's ancestors may be dogs that were brought to Wales by Flemish weavers during the 12th century. Either way, it wasn't until the 1920s that the Corgi was recognized as a purebred dog.

However, corgi Pembroke and corgi Cardigan Corgi were still treated as one breed. The two were divided into separate breeds in 1934, and the American Kennel Club (AKC) registered its first Pembroke Welsh Corgi in the same year. Temperament: The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is an affectionate, smart, and charming breed with a strong work ethic.

These dogs love having a job to do in order to keep themselves corgi and out of trouble, so don't be afraid to put them to work! Pembrokes do well with children, but tend to be reserved around strangers and other corgi, so they make good watchdogs. They love to please their owners and are easy to train, but are independent and like to think for themselves. So, it's important to set firm rules for a Pembroke and establish clear boundaries early on. When properly trained and socialized, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi makes a wonderful family pet and companion.

One of the most popular breeds, the low-set, stocky Pembroke Welsh Corgi is an affectionate, smart, enchanting fox-faced corgi with a big, independent streak, a big dog bark and speedy legs. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy is one type of Corgi. The other breed is the bigger Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Both are strong, herding dogs. Copyright 2013-2018 Online Advertising, LLC, Narvon PA 17555.
