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.
