Pembroke Puppy & Breed Information

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.
