Corgi

A complete guide to corgi dogs

The Welsh corgi comes in two distinct breeds which are viewed as separate by the American Kennel Club: the Pembroke Welsh corgi and the Cardigan Welsh corgi. The former is more common and popular, having gained fame as the preferred breed of British monarch Queen Elizabeth II. These dogs are considered "aristocrats" in the canine world.

Appearance

Height: A Welsh corgi should stand 10 to 12 inches in height at the withers.

Weight: An adult corgi shouldn't weigh more than 30 pounds.

Coat: Corgi dogs have a thick, short undercoat that provides excellent weather resistance. The Pembroke corgi also has a long, coarse topcoat, which has thicker fur around the chest, shoulders and neck.

Ears and Eyes: This breed has round eyes that are neither deep-set nor protruding and are colored in a shade of brown that matches the dog's coat. The triangular ears stand erect and react sharply to sounds.

Tail: Corgi breeders now favor a short, natural bobtail, rather than docking the tails of Pembroke Welsh corgi puppies.

Disposition

Originally bred as herding dogs, Welsh corgis are very protective and loyal. The phrase "big dog in a small package" is often used to describe their temperament, though they're generally friendly towards humans. As with most hounds, including the beagle and dachshund, corgi dogs tend to be very tolerant of young children.

AKC Group: Herding

Training: A corgi puppy should be kept away from other dogs until it's been properly trained. Like most other hounds, these dogs are intelligent but can get lost in themselves, especially when unleashed in the outdoors. Corgi breeders emphasize that owners should assert pack leadership during the training period.

Ideal Environment: These dogs display a range of activity levels, from energetic to lackadaisical. The former is happiest living somewhere it can run, play and hunt; the latter is perfectly happy in an urban apartment.

Health and Care

Feeding: The Pembroke corgi is prone to obesity. Feed it only what it needs, keeping its energy level in mind.

Grooming: As a double-coated dog, the corgi needs regular brushing. These dogs tend to shed a lot, but this can be moderated through spaying or neutering.

Exercise: Try to get a corgi puppy used to plenty of exercise to prevent laziness in adulthood. Pembroke corgi experts stress the need to walk these dogs at least twice a day. This breed also loves to play fetch games.

Health Problems: Corgi breeders are very good at testing for genetic issues that may affect the health of their corgi puppies. While this breed tends to be very healthy with few characteristic problems, they are subject to hip dysplasia and progressive retinal atrophy. Overweight dogs are at increased risk for canine diabetes and canine arthritis.

Average Lifespan: The average corgi lifespan is 10 to 15 years.

Finding a Pet Corgi Dog

Expect to pay between $400 and $700 for Pembroke Welsh corgi puppies of certified parentage when dealing with reputable breeders. Avoid giving business to puppy farms, as dogs are milled out under inhumane conditions, and these establishments don't usually give their puppies the canine vaccinations they need to ensure good health.

"Every single sale is ended with a phone call. We give the artists tips on whatever can be done to improvise. Sometimes, we customise things. For example, for Christmas, we tell them to wrap the products in Christmas colours. We tell them we want the product in colours which make it sell better. So we have constant improvisation on products and this way, the seller can get better sales and keep customers happy," she said.

I have just adopted a siberian husky, cardigan corgi mix, her name is leah. She is 1 yrs. old, I am having a bit of a time teaching her to go to the bathroom outside. Even after i sticks her nose into it, to dicipline her, it's not really working. Can someone out there PLEASE provide me with some kind of idea on what to do. We are crazy about her, i am not enthused about my floor becoming her toilet.
Posted by Crystal on June 22,2013 at 03:53 PM
Reward for good behavior... She is a puppy, a d doesn't know what you want her to do. Be proactive take her out when you see her eat or drink, give her a small treat/reward and lots and lots of praise when she goes where u want her to. If she has an accident, don't make a face or say anything, just clean it up, and move on. Remember u have to teach her what she is supposed to do, use simple commands and praises, be consistent and never shame your dog by rubbing her nose in it, she will remember, and she will not trust you not to do it again, she has to trust that you are a good pack leader looking out for everyone. When my corgi does something he isn't supposed to, a simple no Maxx, bad boy gets the point across pretty quick that I am displeased with his behavior, he is also a year old and has basic obedience manners most of the time. This breed is very intuned to their humans feelings. Good luck!

Never stick a dogs nose in their accidents! Geez, a basic training book or dog training can help, or look up on the internet. Don't abuse your dog.

I have a corgi mix and that has happened to me as we'll. I have heard they are tolerant but this one is short tempered. I have found what works best is putting him in time out. Put him in a closed off bathroom something that is kinda roomy but not with anything they may tear stuff up. Every time I think he may be getting a little moody I take him to time out for only a few short minutes. He is now almost a year old and is a great dog and I haven't had any problems since.

we have a welsh gorgi mix/ her name is roxy. she is about 11 yrs old. she has pretty much given up on walking!! we have her on rimadyl 75 mg and also joint support 111 advanced. this was working great for about 6 months but in the last week she is refusing to walk!! tried the towel trick. placing towel underneath and helping to take weight off the back legs. but now thats not working.. she falls over on her left side. i and my husband are getting up there in age and dont know what else to try . we love her so much , she is very alert and for that reason we dont want her put down.any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. my email is cbimeler@yahoo.com
Posted by Chelsea Ward on February 19,2012 at 12:48 AM
I know I'm responding to this a little late, hopefully your dog is still alive. Is Roxy showing signs of paralysis in the hind legs? If so, she may have a genetic disorder common in Corgis, called Degenerative Mylepathy. It's a fatal disease onset in senior dogs that causes weakening in the spinal cord. It leads to paralysis of the hind legs, incontinence, and eventually it reaches the respiratory tract. Most dogs are put down before it reaches that stage. The only good thing about the disease is that it is essentially painless for dogs. German Shepards commonly have the disorder as well. Good luck with your sweet girl! I know it must be hard to see her struggle.

I just rescued a welsh corgi out of the street. I am on a limited income (ssi). Yet I have fell in love with this dog. He is a cahrmer. He seemed to have been abused. He limps on some days. I want to get him nueterd> He looks to be around 2 yrs old. He is very smart. I just want some help to keep this sweet dog. Plus I think I have came on to his name. I found him on Jefferson st. and on my birthday. wow just writing this made me name him Jefferson ha ha

I had the exact same experience. Found my corgi on a bridge. Mine looked abused as well. Ive had him for over 6 yrs now. You wont regret it. Corgi's are loveable, loyal dogs but can get very jealous if you have other animals.
Posted by Sue on June 08,2011 at 06:17 PM
Our corgi's name is Rowdy. He is so sweet and energetic. He is almost 5 yr and we got him from another person who used him for breeding. One problem is that he has to mark his territory all the time in the house. The other is he is always "herding" our other 2 dogs around and sometimes gets aggressive. How do I stop the aggressive and the marking? Any tips, we love him to death but it is getting old.
Posted by Teresa on June 17,2011 at 10:29 PM
I just read your comment on the Corgi Pluspets website. I have a 7 year old femal pembroke corgi "Jazzy" that i've had since a pup. She has been around other dogs with close neighbors and at the groomers but never lived with another dog until a year and a half ago when i got a Lab puppy. I used to have a cat and they "tolerated" each other. Definately not friends but Jazzy can't seem to lighten up to my Lab. The Lab would like nothing more than to be friends but the Corgi wont have any of it. She just growls and snarls at the Lab all the time. I was wondering if you ever found out how to make your corgi adjust to your other dogs.

I have a welsh Corgi She is the light of my life... She just turned five! Shes the best dog ever..So Loyal and loving.. and just a big ball of fun!. But she worries me because she seems to get stressed out easily. Is this normal for this breed?!? Also, She is ABSOLUTELY obsessed with water! If you even say the word water she goes nuts!! If you walk into the bathroom she jumps in the shower just waiting and begging you to turn on the water for her... Same with the hose outside she carries it in her mouth to bring it to you until you turn it on! I was just curious if anyone else has a corgii that enjoys water as much as she did.. Its fun and oh so funny!
Posted by Shavonne Belford on December 20,2012 at 02:14 PM
My girl loves water on her terms usually after me or my fiancee take a shower she'll hop in and start licking the water up or try to lick me and my fiancee if we don't dry out legs off fast enough she also likes it when we close the drain and fill the tub up just a little but not enough to touch her. Bath time is another story she thrashed and both my fiancee and I have to bath her together

I have 2 Welsh corgi's, Samantha & Rockie~~and they were both probably dophins in their past life. I just came back inside a few minutes ago after spraying those two coo coo's down. They love water fights! = )
Posted by Andi on April 17,2012 at 09:59 PM
Mine is terrified of water too. Bath time is a stressful experience. I found my corgi on a bridge. He is very skittish, not sure if it is bc he was a stray or just his personality. It doesn't take much to stress the poor little guy out.

I am the proud owner of a welsh corgi named Yoda he has been with us for almost ten years. We are looking at getting another one. There are several ads in our area for miniature welsh corgis for sale. Is there such a thing? I have never heard of a miniature.
Posted by Sandy on November 25,2010 at 04:36 PM
Yes. In Oregon, they were breeding "miniature Welsh Corgis" simply breeding them small from what I could tell because the pup I bought from them was AKC registered. He only grew to be 10-15 lbs tho. Not the usual 25 lb for a standard welsh corgi. He was also shorter in stature than the Standard Welsh Corgi. I hope this helps. They were breeding the dog smaller to entice apartment owners or people who only wanted a small dog in the house. Sandy

My girl is still a puppy she has growled a little when I take something or tries to nip me to show her displeasure at having what was in her mouth taken from her but she is still learning and a negative reaction is becoming less and less frequent with her because i either blow on or tap her nose and say no in a stern voice so she has learned that behaving badly will not get her what she wants

I'm attempting to raise my Third Corgi so I know of what I speak...Stop dropping things on the floor because what is on the floor is the dogs at least that's how we roll in my house...If that bad boy EVER bites you pop it on the nose he'll get the message no dog should ever bite you but young puppies will... I have also adopted an older corgi my second corgi was 2 years and 8 months and she thought she was going to bite me when I tried to groom her perhaps a bit too soon after bringing her home but still she should not have bitten me I popped her on the nose and told her bad dog she never bit me again...
Posted by Nery on May 17,2011 at 03:18 PM
I have the same problem with my 6 year old male Eddie. He is the sweetest, most loyal pet ever but drop anything and he will try and bite if I attempt to retrieve. This is starting to become a huge deal. I am afraid one day he will hurt someone that is visiting and doesn't know to leave whatever falls on floor alone. I feel like we have lost control of the house. He is well trained, eats and sleeps in his cage, and knows when it is time to go to bed. Loves to fetch his toys! He is overweight, but he is so cute, you got to love him. I am contemplating giving him up. It will break my heart but he needs lots of room to run and play!
Posted by kathy on April 04,2012 at 09:29 AM

Corgi's are family dogs I've talked to several breeders and read on several sites Corgi's are not meant to be strictly outdoor dogs they need their humans and the love and affection their humans give
Posted by corgi owner on May 16,2011 at 10:08 PM
Hi, I just lost my welsh corgi, Joey. I would not leave them out in the heat, they love water and snow> They have a very thick coat, which is bad in the summer, if they get wet you have to dry tthem quickly because the bacteria will grow in the skin causing infection. they need growmin\g, but all the work is worth every minute. they are adorable and very active. Not outside dogs in my opinion, at least that you leave in up north in the USA or Canada.
Posted by moodywitch on September 07,2010 at 01:09 PM
Experts say they can live as an outdoor dog because they were bred to herd cattle and have very thick undercoats...I personally would not ever have a strictly outdoor dog of any kind and the Corgi would the the last breed I would choose if I needed an outdoor dog...Corgi's enjoy their humans company too much to not be around them all the time...If you plan on sleeping outside then by all means get a Corgi...but otherwise I'd say no...Just my opinion as a 3 time Corgi Human companion...

My corgi name was Jaxie. We got her at 8 weeks old. Everyone loved her. She was so smart and special to me and my girls. She past away unexpectly. It seems so weird to go places without her she went every where with us. The house is to quite without her there. We miss her so much. Im now trying to figure out if i want another corgi. Its a very hard question to answer there will never be another Jaxie. They are specail little dogs smart and have a big heart.

No other dog will ever totally fill the place in your heart that your dog Jaxie had but there is always room for another to touch your heart and be loved in the same special way

First let me say I'm so sorry for your loss...my first corgi was 7 months old when I got her she was more attached to my son who joined the Navy a year after bringing her home so I wouldn't be so lonely...She came to love me and I loved her and was sure I'd die when she did I cried forever and still miss her that was 7 1/2 years ago...I adopted a 2 year and 8 month old Corgi two weeks after I lost Chicolette...Chelsea was a wonderful well behaved dog but lacked the craziness of the corgi having been raised by an older woman who couldn't teach her how to play...I had to really pull myself together after the loss of Chicolette to take care of Chelsea but she soon came around and I taught her to walk nice and play and just be a dog she fell in love with the pet door and being able to come and go as she pleased...I lost Chelsea May 7th at the age of 10 and I knew I wanted another one and my friends pet store was getting in a litter of puppies which they rarely get corgi puppies and my friend knows the breeders and saw the mom and dad...So I was blessed with a young 8 week old corgi puppy on May 25...I'm still asking myself 4 months later what did I get myself into...But Crissy is coming along she's calming down and never wants to be more than a few feet away from me...We had a 3 day weekend so she was kind of mad when I left for work today...If you haven't already gotten another corgi you should there is no other dog for me...

When I was 8 yrs old I saw an ad that described this almost 1 yr old pembroke welsh corgi. I got my way and the owner just gave her to us, and told us she had never been around children. We instantly fell in love and she was at our side through all the good times and all the bad times. Her name was Hanley, she always knew when something was wrong, and she was a quick learner, and would sit in my lap and watch tv with me and make a bed for herself in my pile of laundry. She loved chasing squirrels!!! And she would sit for hours while my 4 yr old niece would brush her, she had a love for children like you couldnt believe. I am now 19 years old, a few weeks ago my best friend passed away, devastating all of us. She has been the most amazing addition to our family that we ever had, she wasnt just a pet or the dog she was family from day 1. I am looking to add another corgi to our family in the near future, but Hanley can never be replaced.

I'm sorry for your loss...I know exactly how you feel my first dog was a Corgi I got when she was 7 months old...I fell in love with the breed and did get another corgi right away after losing her and when I lost the second one I got a young puppy...bit difference between an 8 week old and a 7 months old and a 2.8 months old...but every dog is different and every Corgi is different...You can never replace the one you lost but you have to go on and there is the right corgi out there for you I'm sure of it...good luck.

Cardigan welsh corgis are the sweetest, smartest dogs. He loves playing fetch with his squeeky! He'll bring it back but, hesitates to give it up again. I don't have to handle the slimy toy, just kick it and he chases it and brings it back. He is a 3 yr old tri-color. Absolutely the most perfect markings. Handsome boy!
Posted by David Maldondo on April 19,2010 at 03:00 PM
I agree, Corgis rock! I have a 4month old, his name is Shortee...he is my best friend. He's adapted to my 2nd floor / 1 bedroom nicely, the only thing is that he does not do stairs. He's getting to be a big guy and me carrying him up and down the stairs atleast 4 times a day is, well tiring. Any suggestions?
Posted by beth on August 12,2010 at 07:04 AM
our corgi takes the slide off of our back deck. Its a plastic one that came off of play equipment.
Posted by Sondra on July 22,2010 at 02:41 PM
My first dog was a corgi. Best dog ever! I have a great pyrenesse right now but intend on gettin another corgi. My guy always used to slide down the carpeted stairs with his back legs straight out the back. I think it was to scratch his tummy. We never had a problem with him not wanting or being able to go up or down stairs, but I was always concerned about unnecessary use of the stairs. Like just running up and down them playing in the house. They seem to pound pretty hard on their front legs on the ways down. So I always wondered if it was strenuous on their little front legs.
Posted by Tamara on June 23,2010 at 09:28 PM
Do not worry. We have corgi who is 10 month old now. He couldn't do the staires in the beginning when he was yonger. Now he does it 12 stairs up and down very fast and independent. You have to train him a little first with treats.
Posted by Lori Rommel on May 02,2010 at 11:33 AM
OMG. I have a 3 year old and she won't do stairs wither. Shortee will be the best friend you ever had. He's really smart isn't he. Until you can get a first floor, can you try to train him with snacks? Try luring him every couple of stairs. Not too many treats though. Just let him get a lick of your hand until you move to the next one. It might take some time, but try it. I hope this helps.
Posted by Cathy on March 18,2010 at 04:48 PM
What do you call a corgi mixed with a sheltie?
Posted by Lisa on October 21,2010 at 11:09 PM
How about a "shelgie" ? We have what we thing is a border collie and corgie. We refer to her as a "borgie". Enjoy him. Perhaps if you sit on the stairs and go down one at a time he will take each stair with you.
Posted by moodywitch on September 07,2010 at 01:26 PM
I call it not right...I wish people would stop mixing corgi's especially the Pembrokes...I love them the way they are...
Posted by Becki Stallings on March 14,2010 at 02:05 PM
I am looking for a corgi/miniature collie mix. My Dad rescued one when I was a child & he was be best dog. He was very short with long white, black, & brown fur, & one of the most beautiful tails I have ever seen on a dog. The hair on his tail was so long that when it was wagging you could actually feel the wind coming from it.

We have 2 corgis and we just love them. They are nutered males. The first one is 3 years old and the pup is 7 months. All of a sudden they are fighting when they are with us. When they are outside they do just fine. It seems that my wife is the triger most of the time but sometimes I am as well. We are trying to intervene. We have stopped them from fighting but each night it get pretty entense. Can you help?

I am looking for a forever home for our loved three year old boy and girl corgi. The girl is fixed but not the boy. We got them from a very good breeder in Longmont CO when they were six weeks old. They are our darling pets but unfortunately I have to move for work and cannot take them with. Please email zelda.fourie@gmail.com if you are interested.
Posted by Merle Hoerner on January 17,2011 at 10:36 PM
we are moving to the country and would be interested in a dog like yours, Where are you located? We live in Northern Montana. My wife likes this breed. Let me know more. thanks so much M Hoerner
Posted by Julie on March 22,2010 at 07:04 AM
You commented on a blog you have 2 corgis you got from some grand breeder in Co. Well all good breeders will always take their puppies back when an owners lives change. So one of two things is happening here, you dont have this grand breeder you think you do, or you have not considered this as an option which should have been the first thing the breeder ever said to you. All breeders ALWAYS take their own home. Julie
Posted by katie on June 16,2012 at 11:51 PM
you have that right besides sounds like you just want an excuse to get rid of your dogs. very lame
Posted by Lou on June 27,2010 at 02:00 AM
I agree with Julie, I do believe she is not being critical, but truthful.15 years ago we purchased a Pem from a breeder 1400 miles away, she stressed at any time until death please contact her and she will take him, back, well he passed a few months ago, a few weeks later we contacted a breeder with a litter, the first thing after our conversation was at any time, any age please call so she could take her back. we have had her for a few months, and her brother will be coming to live with us, because the people could not offer the attention he needed, they contacted the breeder as instructed, as i talk to her regularly, she offered him to us, after i asked, now very soon he will be with his sister. so please call the breeder, and if you are not able to contact them, please contact any breeder locally and they will assist you in finding a forever home for you beloved corgi's.

We have a Pembrooke corgi. Does anyone know why he barks when we go upstairs to the 2nd floor or down to the basement? He will not go upstairs himself except when visiting his pals. Boy, do these dogs yap- I know he thinks he is talking.
Posted by Shavonne Belford on December 20,2012 at 03:25 PM
He's saying he doesn't like not being able to see you or be near you my girl has a similar problem if i get out of her line of sight in public she gets very upset and will bark until my fiancee gets her to where i'm in her line of sight again and only then will she calm down
Posted by Mardy on May 10,2010 at 06:52 PM
Yes, they are hearding dogs. they want to heard every one together and be right in the middle. They are the most loyal pet you can find.

We have two, a 10 yr-old female and a 5 year old male...she barks often, but, even worse, he loves to sing...we just figure they are worth the noise !!

Hi I'm only 11 and my Corgi named Beethoven and he thinks there are things outside and barks at them in the middle of the night thinking he'll scare them away so his eyes may be tricking him

I bought a Pembroke Corgi last Nov.2008.... I fell in love with him immediately!!... Very smart dogs... training was so easy... they are very alert dogs, fast learners and very loyal... I went yesterday and bought me a female corgi... This will be my Winston's wife.... he is already taken to her and protects her when anyone is around.... I will never own any other dog other than a Corgi!... Best Breed anyone could ever want... and I've never seen a dog so good around Children!
Posted by Patty Davis on December 06,2009 at 02:44 PM
We are looking for a red and white sable colored male Pembroke Welsh Corgi pup or young adult. We live in Colchester, VT. We are a very active family and want to share our love and fun with such a dog. If a pup is available, we would like to wait until March 2010 to potty train it in our beautiful backgard with perennial gardens and plenty of lawn and trees. We would considered an adult corgi if it has been raised in a family with children.
Posted by chad and laura on November 25,2009 at 11:25 AM
We have a Pembroke and he is the coolest dog ive ever had. He was potty trained already but our cat hates him. If there are any dual owners out there please tell me how to get my cat to lke my dog. we had the cat first but its been three months now and theys still dont get along.
Posted by Gwen B. on September 10,2010 at 02:22 PM
How did this turn out? I heard it takes at least 6 months until everyone will get a long. I'm just getting a corgi tonight and I have 3 cats at home now. So I hope they will adjust to the new dog.
Posted by Donna on September 04,2009 at 11:33 AM
I have a (7) year old female Pembroke Welch Corgi, named Cinnamon. She is quite the sweetzee pie. Very lovebale, unbelievably loyal, highly intelligent, knows lots and lots of commands. She is a very special dog as her B-day is 911! I am a retired person that can no longer take care of her in the way she should be taken care of. I am looking to place her in a home that will love, protect and always give her the much needed love that she so deserves, and gives back ten fold. If anyone is SERIOUSLY interested in adopting her, please contact me at the above email address. Thank You!

Posted by Meredeth on September 11,2009 at 06:05 PM
Hello, I read your touching request to find a new home for your corgi. My mom loves this breed. She had a corgi until July when she lost Rosie to old age (16). She is in search of another corgi to share her life with. The new home would be in Connecticut. If your pride and joy is still up for adoption, please email me include any special requests, adoption fee and especially where you are located. My mom's travel area is limited to 50 miles from zip code 06033. Thank you so much, Meredeth

Corgis are wonderful companions. My Corgi was with me for 13 years and recently died with cancer. I have to say he was totally dedicated and loyal to the very end. I miss him terribly and am having a real difficult time getting used to him being gone. They do find that spot in your heart that you can never let go of or forget. I would get another Corgi as I feel they are the best dog and have more love that you can ever imagine. All I can say is that if you have a Corgi then love them every day because you don't know if that day will be the last day you will have.
Posted by AmyJane on December 12,2009 at 11:14 PM
Hi there I see you wrote this comment a few months ago. I am in tears right now for my Corgi recently past with cancer as well. He was my best friend and the most wonderful dog I have ever had. In fact he was the reason I became a trainer and advocate for dogs. I believe in natural and spiritual training wfor dogs and there humans. He taught me so much and I am having the hardest time letting go. I had him creamated for I always wanted him near me however I am not able to go to the vet and pick him up. Its been 2 months. I am lost and don't know what will help. If you have any suggestions I would be greatful. I wasn't expecting his last day I just thought he was sick but he went down hill very quickly. My deepest sympathy goes out to you and everyone his life touched. I hope this not going to far but have you opened your home to another corgi or another pet?
Posted by simmie on January 02,2010 at 09:58 PM
hi amy, so sorry about your baby. i too am so devastated for My beloved tricolor boy 11 yrs. old. He got sick so fast and past away in about 7 weeks. He was so perfect and healthy before that. He just had a little stiffness in his back hips. took him to the vet and he just said he had arthritis and got sore. then two weeks later he couldn't walk and started bleeding. then they said he had cancer of the liver and spleen. he then died 4 weeks later. So sick, i was in shock and very upset at the vet. l Like how could you miss that serious diagnosis. i have never cried so much in my life.They say it takes 3 mths to feel better. it's just now 3 mths. and it a little better. It also took me awhile to pick up his remains. Because i didn't want it to be real. i was so in shock and in love with him. it was my first dog ever. it was instant and total love at first site.Someone said people have an' once in a lifetime dog ".I wasn't familiar with that saying. Truly sorry for your lose. Take care.
Posted by Donna on September 04,2009 at 11:39 AM
Audry, I am deeply sorry that you lost one of your best friends, however, if you are seriously interested in adopting another Corgi, she is (7) please contact me at rose-crystals@hotmail.com.....

Hunter, look at adopt a pet . com for corgis, thats where I came from, my first parents could not keep me (the did not plan for small active children and a herding dog) . Now i'm in my fore ever home and have a brother to play corgi games with all day. My brother is also a rescue, he's a Dorgi daschound corgi mix, look it up on computer that willy on the site, Remember the Queen of England made US the corgi breed royal , not a bad credential. good luck hunter love your corgi never hurt or tease them, and you'll have love back forever

i really want a dog especially a corgi! my uncle has one so every time we go to ct to visit my grandmother i always play with stimpy
Posted by sara on August 11,2009 at 05:05 PM
Corgis are very good dogs. I have a quite older one.She is almost 10 yearsold. And also she is very well trained. Although I didnt get her as a puppy I still know she would train very well. I have been teaching her new tricks and she has proved she is a very fast learner. A corgi is a wonderful breed. They have large ears when they are puppys but eventually they will grow into them. That is all i have to say about corgis.
Posted by hunter taylor on July 08,2009 at 12:51 AM
I think corgi's are so cute and I'm trying to convince my dad that I will be responsible with my dog and I know I will love it and play with it
Posted by Lou on June 27,2010 at 02:15 AM
Hunter Taylor~ you must understand that your dad may not have the time or the desire to care for a dog, most parents have to take on the responsibility of taking care of a dog after they get it, I know you desire to be responsible, but there are alot of things that must be done that you may not be able to do, or your dad may not want to do. like combing and brushing your corgi, and regular baths, and keeping the nails clipped, they need to be walked or able to run every day. once you buy your corgi, you must be ready to take care of him or her for the next 10-15 years with total dedication. it is a big task, and i think your dad would really like you to think about that, if not i would like you to think about that. I love corgi's I have had them all my life I am alot older than you and have had 4 corgis in my life time and now a new one, and another coming in a week. her brother : ) so think about how much work it will be and if you are willing to do it in exchange for the cute corgi's love and loyalty they will give you in exchange. good luck with your dad.
Posted by Gail Green on October 23,2010 at 08:37 PM
Hunter, I am 50 years old with a lot of experience pertaining to dogs. I've raised all breeds and sizes. The Corgi is a cutie, but it also has a very high energy level. This type of dog is used to being used as herders, so be aware that if they are left alone for a long period of time, they may become very destructive to your property. They will also become depressed if left along with nothing to do for several hours straight.
