Dogs - Pembroke Corgi

About the breed

The Pembroke corgi takes its name from the county of Pembrokeshire in Wales, UK.  Corgis were used on farms to herd cattle. Pembroke corgis are slightly smaller than the Cardigan corgi. Pembrokes have been made famous by the British Royal family, who keep corgis.

Read the origins of dog breeds.

Corgis can be called "Welsh" corgis. "Welsh" means "from Wales."  

Pembroke corgis have short legs, long bodies, and a fox-like head. They are tough, medium sized dogs.  The coat benefits from regular brushing. It sheds twice a year.

A corgi is a trainable dog who makes a good pet and a good watchdog.

It has been common practice to cut off the tail, leaving just a stump. This is called, "docking." Moves are afoot to outlaw the practice. If you are buying a puppy, you can ask the breeder not to cut the puppy's tail off.

Dogs sometimes practice "selective hearing." They can hear us opening a tin of dog food and will come running from nowhere, but if they see a cat across the road our "Come here!" commands are ignored. Humans are like that too! "Blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it." Luke chapter 11 verse 28
