Ebullient. Comical. Charming. Many flattering words can be used to describe the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Their smile is as contagious as their enthusiasm! The bright little dog from Pembrokeshire descends from ancestors brought to England in the 12th century by Flemish weavers. They are sturdy and low-set, yet light on their feet. Their intelligence and stamina make them ideal agility and obedience competitors as well as working stock dogs. They are amenable to urban living if their intellectual and exercise needs are met. They are fairly heavy shedders so regular brushing is important to keep their coat healthy and free of loose hair.
