Cardigan Welsh Corgi

We had been wanting a corgi puppy for a long time but when we were ready to have a dog, no local breeders had litters available. Enter puppyspot. We love our little guy who arrived in perfect health. There were some bumps in the road getting him here due to the pandemic but puppyspot was committed to constant process improvement. If you are looking for a specific breed of dog and have a specific timeline for getting a puppy, I recommend this service.

Cardigan Welsh Corgi Characteristics

While not as popular as the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi is still a herding dog turned loving family companion.  These dogs are a hit everywhere they go, and early socialization and obedience training will ensure your Corgi makes new friends every day. Their intelligent personalities and desire to please make them very trainable, even for novice dog parents.

The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is believed to have existed in Wales over 3,000 years ago and is much older than the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. HIstorically, these Corgis were bred as cattle herders, but nowadays they love relaxing and playing with their families and are active, fun-loving playmates for children and other pets.
 
Standing slightly taller than their Pembroke counterpart, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi stands around 10-12 inches at the shoulder and weighs between 22-31 pounds. Apart from being a little bit larger, the Cardigan can be easily identified by its long flowing tail and different shaped ears. Both breeds of Corgi are notorious shedders, so frequent brushing and grooming will be necessary to keep stray hair to a minimum around the house. The Cardigan comes in merle, red, blue, and other colored coats.
 
After seeing a Corgi, people are often surprised to learn of their herding heritage. As a result, these dogs have an abundance of energy and a strong desire for purpose. Providing your corgi with ample daily exercise will be crucial to prevent bad behavior within the house. These dogs also enjoy training for agility or obedience games, which helps provide mental stimulation as well as physical exercise. 
 
Finally, the Corgi tends to overeat if left unsupervised, so meal planning and exercise are the necessary one-two punch for keeping your Corgi at a healthy weight.
 

How dog-friendly is Alabama?

Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon! 

 

Here’s what you should know about Alabama.

 

Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.

 

Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.

Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?

Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.

Birmingham

Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama

BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.

 

Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%. 

 

What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama

Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period. 

Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
