Description of Pembroke Welsh Corgi

The Breed History..Though often considered an offshoot of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi family, the Pembroke Corgis may trace further back, to about the year 1107. Various breeds are thought to have contributed to the corgi type including Shipperke, Finnish Spitz, Keeshond, Swedish Vallhunds, and Samoyed. Cross breeding with Cardigans occurred, and only in the last 75 years have the registries bred separately. The Pembroke lines matured in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Corgi is thought to mean dog in Celtic, or in Welsh, dwarf dog. This breed was brought to the public's attention as the chosen pets of Queen Elizabeth. AKC first recognized Pembrokes in 1934...Breeding for Function..Bred originally as cattle driving dogs, they are also excellent watchdogs, and are successful at obedience trials. Their talents also include tracking and agility. They are valued for their loyal companionship...Physical Characteristics..Height at Withers: female 10-12" (25.4-30.5 cm), male 10-12" (25.4-30.5 cm)..Weight: females under 28 lb (12.5 kg), males under 30 lb (13.5 kg)...Coat: A short to medium length, it is composed of an undercoat and coarser outer coat. The dog is shown basically untrimmed. White is acceptable in markings of chest, leg, neck and small amounts only on face. Body colors are black and tan, red, fawn, and sable. Predominantly white coats, or coats with a bluish/smoky cast are serious faults. Some dogs are tri-colored...Longevity: 12-15 years...Points of Conformation: The Pembroke is finer boned and smaller than the Cardigan, but still gives the impression of strength. Pembrokes have pointed erect ears and are short-tailed, while the Cardigan's ears are less pointed and they have a long tail. A low-set dog, Pembrokes are well known for their agility and stamina. They are longer than high, topline is level, neck is long, and the head is large with moderate stop and fox-like proportions with a keen expression. The eyes are oval, oblique and brown, and the nose is black. Ribs are deep and well sprung. Tails are usually docked short, though puppies are sometimes born with naturally short tails. Forelegs are bowed due to the chondrodystrophic type of the breed. Feet are well arched, and the dewclaws are generally removed all around. They move with a long low stride..
