Cardigans In General
The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is a long, low, fox-like dog with large upright ears, a bushy tail and a short or medium length coat which comes in an intriguingly wide range of colours - red, sable, brindle, black, blue merle, black and tan, all of which are usually attractively marked -
with white on the legs and feet as well as head, collar and tip of tail.
Cardigan Welsh Corgis are one of the oldest known breeds.
They are believed to have been in existence in Wales for over 3,000 years.
The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is one of the breeds included in the AKC Herding Group. As the name implies, these dogs have a heritage as companions and protectors in driving cows and sheep on farms in Great Britain. A good working Cardigan was a valuable asset to the farmer. After tending the herd during the day, the farmer brought his dog into the home at night where it became friend, protector and
companion to the family and children.
With it's sensible coat it is easy to keep clean and smart.
A Cardigan often takes a few years to come to maturity,
but if you are lucky it may live to between 15 and 17 years of age.
Cardigan Welsh Corgi is a working breed.
If you don't activate it, the risk is overhelming that it will activate it self.
There are no limits to what adventures a Cardigan can come up with!
