According to records in the UK, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi has been around since about 1200 BC. Their status has developed over time, as in the UK the Cardigan and Pembroke Corgis were eventually recognised as different breeds in 1934. Corgis are an active and clever breed that were originally designed to herd cattle, sheep, and horses. They are easy to teach and eager to learn. They come in four distinct coat colours and markings and are good with children and other pets.


Corgis can fit into almost any household, whether it's an apartment or a huge home with a yard, due to their adaptable and loving nature. They do, however, have a lot of energy for such a small dog. They require lots of walks and lively playtime. You'll be shocked at how fast these short-legged puppies can run! They make an excellent companion for humans who can meet the breed's requirements. They are perfect for the active family, and should be socialised and trained from a young age.
