A Welsh Corgi is most recognizable for its body shape. They have short legs, long bodies and broad chests. These proportions give the dogs a squat frame that keeps them low to the ground. Welsh Corgis tend to have wide heads that come to a point and triangle ears that are rounded at the top. These dogs have a short undercoat that is covered by a longer overcoat and they shed continuously. Corgis can come with coats that offer a variety of colors, but they commonly have combinations of black, brindle, sable, red, white and blue merle. This breed is known for being fun-loving and friendly, but they can also be a little stubborn. As long as you provide the proper training when they are young, they will be obedient and attentive. Welsh Corgis can also be good family dogs, but they do require a good amount of activity and stimulation.
Origin of the Welsh Corgi
The Welsh Corgi is one of the oldest of the British dog breeds. The breed comes from Wales and they have been working as herders for many centuries. Their low-set, rugged frame makes them ideal for herding cattle, but they have also been used as guard dogs and for athletic competitions.
