Pembroke Welsh Corgi
If I’m good enough for the House of Windsor, I do believe I will fit in quite nicely at your humble abode. Trotting dutifully next to Queen Elizabeth has given me a familiar profile, though we are still used as working field dogs. I’m very affectionate and friendly and am always up for fun, especially with children. I’m more reserved among strangers and will try to herd people.
I’m smart and eager to learn, so training is easy—though I do enjoy stating my opinions with a loud bark. I’m generally good with new dog owners and can live in an apartment, but being left alone makes me unhappy. Though I’m fairly intense with high energy, my exercise needs can be satisfied with a good daily walk, lively game, or training session. I can be quite stubborn, but don’t try to gain favor with food as I can become quite fat!
The feature that distinguishes me from my Cardigan cousin is my docked tail. My coat may be slightly long or even fluffy, and my coloring may be red, sable, black, tricolored, or fawn, often with white markings. Shedding can be managed with regular brushing, with daily attention during shedding seasons.
I’m a medium-sized dog standing 10 to 12 inches tall and weighing 25 to 27 pounds. Health concerns to watch for include hip dysplasia, invertebral disc disease, and epilepsy. Less common issues are vWD, skin fragility, and eye problems. With a healthy diet and loving care, I’ll be a kind and devoted member of the family for 11 to 13 years.
