The Pembroke Welsh Corgi, one of two Corgi breeds, was first recognized as the smallest of the American Kennel Club’s Herding Group in 1934. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s history can be traced back to the 10th century, making it a very old canine breed.
Not to be confused with its close relative, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a friendly and jovial dog breed that makes a great family pet. Telling the difference between the two for the common person can most easily be achieved by the tails of the Corgi. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi will most always have a docked tail, while the Cardigan will have a full tail. The Cardigan is also a bit larger, and has larger ears. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi will generally have a coat color of red, sable, fawn, or black and tan. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi can have coat colors that are red, sable, brindle, black and blue merle.
The word Corgi in the Welsh language means “Dwarf Dog”, which definitely works given the Corgi’s small stature. However, they are surely not short on personality as they are energetic and fun dogs. Pembroke Welsh Corgis have been the preferred breed of the British Royal family for over 70 years, as Queen Elizabeth II herself has owned over 30 Pembroke Welsh Corgis during her reign as Queen.
