Cardigan Welsh Corgi

Even-tempered, loyal and affectionate, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi originally was used as a drover and farm dog in Cardiganshire in 1200 B.C. Mostly a companion dog today, the Cardigan is small but capable of great power, speed and endurance. This breed can adapt well to city or country life if provided daily exercise. His double coat requires regular brushing.
Living Considerations
  • Good with children
  • Not hypoallergenic
  • Suitable for apartment living if adequately exercised
