(This breed has been viewed 32210 times)
The Cardigan Welsh Corgi, as it's name cleverly implies, originates from the United Kingdom division of Wales. This attractive dog is simply built for the outdoors, with a thick coat that is short and resistant to weather, and only requires an occasional brushing to remove any dead hairs. Corgis absolutely love to be outside, and willingly participate all sorts of outdoor activities such as long walks, and sporting events like playing catch with a Frisbee.
Cardigan Welsh Corgis are extremely eager and intelligent learners, and they catch on quickly to what is expected of them. Their calm and brave demeanor causes them to form close, long-lasting ties with it's owners and family. Although they have been known to tangle with other dogs from time to time, they do get along fine with children of all ages. It is important to introduce them to other household pets at an early age. Cardigan Welsh Corgis stand at an average shoulder height of 12 inches (30.5 cm). The only requirement to fall into their specific class is that the total amount of white on their coats cannot exceed 30% of their total coat area.
