7 Surprising Facts About Corgis Dog Breed

The Welsh Corgi has two Corgi breeds, Cardigans and Pembroke’s. Corgis are believed to have existed in Wales for more than 3,000 years. The Cardigan is distinguished by his long tail — like the sleeves of a cardigan sweater — and was used to drive cattle to market. Corgis are sensible and affectionate, they love to spend time with family and are active, fun-loving playmate for school-age children. Corgis have medium-length coat comes in many colors and patterns, including red, brindle, blue merle and black, usually with white markings.

Ancestry with Huskies
You’d never guess by looking at them, but these squat dogs share a common ancestry with the formidable Siberian husky. They have less in common with dogs their size and more in common with their larger canine brethren. They might not pull a sled (or be able to navigate snow) but they have that same dogged determination.

Their best friends were Vikings!
Cardigans are among the oldest herding breeds and over 3,000 years old! The Pembroke settled in Wales and is believed to have accompanied Vikings across the pond as they came and settled in Wales. They have a time-tested history amidst tough, hardworking human companions and they’ve historically earned their keep.
