Learn all about what makes the Corgi one of the most popular dog breeds.
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has been described as a "large dog in a small dog’s body" due to its extremely active and intelligent nature. An excellent guardian despite its small size, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is furiously protective of its property and owners, although this can lead to trouble due to their size. Their complete devotion is unquestionable, and this, coupled with their excitable nature, makes the Pembroke Welsh Corgi a brilliant companion.
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s lineage is not known, but the history of the breed was theorized by W. Lloyd-Thomas, an expert on Welsh farm dogs. Despite the similarities in looks between the Cardigan and Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Lloyd-Thomas said that they were in fact separate breeds, with the Pembroke Welsh Corgi being introduced to Wales over 200 years after the Cardigan Welsh Corgi in the twelfth century. It is thought that Flemish weavers brought the small dog over with them as they settled in Wales. While in Wales, they were bred with local cattle dogs giving them the Spitz, the characteristics that are seen today such as the pricked ears, curly tail and pointed muzzle. The fact that the two breeds of Corgi look alike has been put down to some crossbreeding at an early stage of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s history, which influenced their looks.
