Pembroke Welsh Corgi
Did You Know
Looking for a Pembroke Welsh Corgi?

  • The Pembroke Welsh Corgi, unlike the Cardigan, has no tail.
  • The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is the younger of the two Corgi breeds and is a separate and distinct breed from the Cardigan.
  • The Pembroke is the more popular of the two Corgis.
  • The Pembroke, though the younger breed, can trace its origin to 1107 AD.
  • The Pembroke has in its ancestry the Keeshond, Schipperke, Pomeranian, Samoyed, Chow-Chow, Norwegian Elkhound, and Finnish Spitz; it has little or nothing of Dachshund characteristics like the Cardigan.
