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 Mississippi?
Mississippi has a ton of pet owners and dog lovers in the state! But a few factors consistently put Mississippi in the bottom or middle of the pack compared to the most pet-friendly states. The main issue is Mississippi’s somewhat lax approach to animal welfare laws.
Animal advocacy and shelter group Pawsafe ranks Mississippi 48th overall for pet-friendliness. Definitely some room for improvement!
They arrived at their state ranking through a study evaluating each of the 50 states by important factors like animal cruelty restrictions, pet services, pet-friendly accommodations, and more. As we mentioned, the main issue for Mississippi is its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
A separate study by review site Safewise ranks Mississippi as 32nd. A little bit better! However, if we combine the two studies, Mississippi still ranks towards the bottom of the pack.
A few more facts for dog-lovers in Mississippi
Here’s a positive note: BringFido lists Mississippi as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also lists Ocean Springs Beach and the Biloxi Shrimping Trip as popular dog-friendly attractions.
Another strength in the state is a ton of pet owners! Fifty-one percent of Mississippi residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%.
What kinds of dogs do Mississippians love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Mississippi are Labradors, Beagles, and German Shepherds. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Basset Hounds, and Retrievers.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Mississippi
Mississippi saved 41,290 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 5,417 animals were killed over this same period.
Nineteen out of 64 of the animal shelters within Mississippi are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 80%. This is well short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. We hope to see some improvement in these numbers in the coming years!
