Cardigan Welsh Corgi  


The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is the older of the two Corgi breeds and while similar in many respects, the Cardigan has a tail, is longer of body, and has somewhat more muscular legs than the Pembroke. They were brought to Cardiganshire by the Celts in 1200 BC and became useful to tenant farmers who used them as drovers to move their cattle onto the common land for grazing. Cardigans are intelligent, quick on their feet, and have the endurance to work long hours. This breed is breed adaptable city or country life as long as they get some form of daily exercise and plenty of quality time with their family. They are known for their devoted, affectionate natures and trainability. Their grooming needs are not extensive but their double does require regular brushing.
