Pembroke Welsh Corgi
My husband and I have wanted a corgi puppy for what seems like forever but living in NYC without a car made it difficult to find options. PuppySpot made the process quick and easy and they brought Bagel (our amazing little puppy) to us with an awesome starter pack, a microchip, all his vet papers, and a health check just before. The customer service was amazing and you can really tell how much they care about finding these puppies the right home. If we get another puppy down the line, I will...
Pembroke Welsh Corgi Characteristics
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are the Queen of England’s favorite dog! It doesn't get much better than that. Intelligent and active, but still fairly small, these Corgis make a great fit for any living environment. They’re also adorable with their gorgeous coloring, cute stubby legs, and huge inquisitive ears. They are easy to train and are great with children. Note that Corgis are frequent shedders and require regular grooming to keep looking their best.
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are purebred dogs that were originally bred to herd sheep, horses, and cattle. They are the smallest breed in the American Kennel Club’s Herding Group.
Corgis are best known for their short stubby legs and clever, fox-like faces. They have thick coats that come in a range of different colors including black, brown, liver, white, and red. They will shed regularly and require weekly grooming.
For a small breed, Corgis have a lot of energy. Regular exercise will help them stay physically and mentally sharp. A long walk around the neighborhood or romp in the yard is a great way to bond with your Corgi and make sure she stays healthy and happy.
Corgis are highly adaptable and can thrive in any living environment, whether it’s an apartment or large home. They generally get along with everyone, but their herding instinct can lead them to nip at kids’ ankles or other dogs when playing.
Corgis are rather vocal dogs, and you might feel a bit like they bark at everything. But not to worry – they’re easy to train and typically respond best to being rewarded with food. (Don’t we all!)
Corgis are a medium-sized breed. They can grow to weigh between 22 and 31 pounds and 10 to 12 inches in height. They are usually quite healthy and enjoy an average lifespan of 12 to 13 years.
How dog-friendly is Illinois?
Illinois loves its pets! The state ranks very high for pet care, safety, and happiness. If you’re adopting a new furry friend in Illinois, you’re in a great place!
One of the top ranking sites for dog friendliness is Pawsafe. They analyze and rank each state based on factors like pet care costs, walkability scores, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws.
In their study, Pawsafe rated Illinois as the third most pet-friendly state. They found that Illinois has over 800 pet-friendly accommodations, 279 dog-friendly restaurants, 286 pet-friendly attractions, and 634 pet services.
A similar study from Safewise, another reputable ranking site, also revealed Illinois to be highly pet-friendly. They rank Illinois second just behind Washington. One of the key factors in their ranking is the high number of pet-friendly rentals in the state. In fact, 35% of rentals accept pets. This is the fourth highest percentage of pet-friendly rentals by state.
Is Chicago a pet-friendly city?
In another study, WalletHub analyzed the 100 largest cities in the United States to find the most pet-friendly city. They ranked Chicago as the 64th most pet-friendly city. The city also scored 13th for pet health and wellness. However, Chicago is more expensive for pets, ranking 90th in terms of pet budget.
SmartAsset conducted a similar study and their ratings place Chicago in a more favorable light as the 16th most pet-friendly city.
Chicago has a lot going for pets including 570 dog friendly restaurants, 12 dog-friendly shopping centers, and 46 pet businesses for every 10,000 establishments.
A different study from the Trust for Public Land (TPL) showed that Chicago has the 52nd most dog parks per capita, with 0.9 dog parks per 100,000 residents.
A few more dog-related facts for Illinois
Despite the great numbers in Illinois, only 32% of Illinois residents own a dog, which is well below the national average of 40%. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in the state are Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers. In the city of Chicago, the same three breeds are equally as popular, but there is also a keen interest in French Bulldogs and Rottweilers.
However, the state’s total pet ownership rate is far less than the national average as well, with only approximately 49% of Illinois families owning a pet of any kind.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Illinois
Illinois saved 1,028 more animals in 2020 than in 2019. Out of 177 animal shelters, 126 are no-kill shelters. The overall save rate for the state is right around 82%. If Illinois can raise its save rate more, it will pass the 90% necessary to become a no-kill state. We hope they can do it!
