AKC and UKC classify breeds into "groups" by their original purpose.
Northern or Spitz types may eventually be sub-divided.
Explore the Group descriptions below, or choose from the
menu bar above to decide which breed best fits your
lifestyle and interests. If you already know just which breed you prefer, use the drop-down
list of all breeds!

Sporting Breeds

Bird dogs hunt and retrieve by scent and sight

Spaniel or Pointer,
Flusher or Setter,
Sporting dogs are
the hunter's go-getter!


Scent and Sight hounds hunt feather or fur

By day or by night,
to tree or to ground,
there's nothing so sweet
as the voice of a hound.

Working Dogs

Service work, police, draft, and protection dogs

Watchman at night,
companion by day,
he does your bidding
at work or at play


Courageous hunters and faithful friends

No fear, no pain,
no game's too rough,
a working terrier
is dog enough!

Toy Breeds

Diminutive, delightful and utterly devoted

A Toy is a toy, a
companion and more,
a treasure, a joy,
and a dog to adore


Utility dogs are multi-purpose, companions

No look-alikes here,
but tricks they can do.
Your very best friend
is rugged and true.

Herding Dogs

Pastoral breeds protect and control stock

They move, gather
and faithfully guard
cattle and sheep and
the kids in the yard.

Miscellaneous/Rare Breeds

Often foreign or newly developed

Shower me not
with gems so rare,
give me instead,
a diamond with hair


They are types or species more than "breeds"

Old as the dingo,
wild as the wind,
wise as coyote,
Man's very best friend

Pembroke Welsh Corgis Puppy Breed Information
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are bold, happy 10 to 12” dogs that want to control their charges. At about 25 pounds, the Pembroke is an excellent family pet with kind but protective virtues. The Corgi’s strong head, foxy expression, and big intelligent eyes give him dignity despite his comically short legs.

Pembroke Puppy & Breed Information

See AKC Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppies for sale from Gold Star Breeders

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi developed in Wales around 1107.  Similar but to the un-docked Cardigan, the Pembroke’s tail is cropped as short as possible.  The Welsh Corgi is active but obedient.  The breed is sturdily built, and his long low body fits perfectly in your sedan and in the AKC Herding Group.

Coat, Color, Care: Welsh Corgis have a medium length, insulating but wash and wear coat.  With or without white markings, Pembroke colors range from fawn, tan, to rich red-golds.  Welsh Corgis are strongly built with normal bone and skin, large clear eyes, and relatively free of health defects.

Pembroke Welsh Corgi Personality:  The Welsh Corgi is good with children, small animals, and other dogs.  Corgis are keenly alert for unusual sounds but are basically friendly, accepting of strangers and other dogs.  Pembrokes are loyal, fearless, eager to learn and easy to train.

Exercise Requirements: Welsh Corgis love to curl up on the sofa next to you but they also need to flex those muscles and stretch their short little legs.  A fenced yard will do but the Pembroke is active and a good run with the kids or another dog will insure a relaxed house dog and prevent nervous habits such as chewing or licking.

Pembroke Welsh Corgi Health Concerns: Like all heavy breeds (and Corgis love food), the overweight, poorly muscled Pembroke is more prone to back problems, hip and elbow dysplasia or accidental ligament injury.  Prevent your Corgi from jumping off furniture.  Be aware of possible eye abnormalities such as PRA or glaucoma.
