The Cardigan Welsh Corgi first came to Cardiganshire in 1200 BC with the Celts. He was useful as a drover and a farming dog because the Crown owned most of the lands at that time. Tenant farmers were only able to fence off and own a few acres that were around their homes.
He’s a small but fast dog with great endurance. His coat can be red, brindle, sable, blue or black merle. He may also have white markings. He suits life in apartments, cities and in the country and is equally as comfortable anywhere. His double coat needs regular care and brushing and some exercise each day. He’s a loyal dog who loves being around people. He’s affectionate and mild-mannered. He stands 10.5 – 12.5 inches high.
