Pembroke Welsh Corgi



At 10 to 12 inches at the shoulder and 27 to 30 pounds, a well-built male Pembroke presents a big
dog in a small package. Short but powerful legs, muscular thighs, and a deep chest equip him for a
hard day’s work. Built long and low, Pembrokes are surprisingly quick and agile. They can be red,
sable, fawn, and black and tan, with or without white markings. The Pembroke is a bright, sensitive
dog who enjoys play with his human family and responds well to training. As herders bred to move
cattle, they are fearless and independent. They are vigilant watchdogs, with acute senses and a
“big dog” bark. Families who can meet their bold but kindly Pembroke’s need for activity and
togetherness will never have a more loyal, loving pet.

There are two Corgi breeds: the Cardigan Welsh Corgi and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. The
Pembroke Welsh Corgi was bred from the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, both dating back to sometime in
the 10th century. One of the oldest herding breeds, the Corgi is known for their skilled herding of
sheep, geese, horse, cattle and ducks. Today they are outstanding in agility, flyball, tracking and
sheepdog trials.
Small, up to 10-12” at the shoulders, weighing anywhere from 24-28 pounds. The Pembroke Welsh
Corgi is short-legged dog in a sturdy body with a short weather-resistant double coat in colors of
red, fawn, sable, or black and tan.
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a life expectancy of 12-15 years and is prone to back disorders and
spinal cord diseases, glaucoma, and epilepsy
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a highly active breed, and requires a daily walk and off-leash play
and running in a safe, fenced area. They also need mental stimulation to prevent boredom and
destruction, so be sure to provide your Pembroke Welsh Corgi with plenty of interactive toys that
challenge their problem-solving skills.
