Pembroke Welsh Corgi originated from South West Wales. It is believed that the ancestors of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi were brought into Wales by the Flemish Weavers in the 10th century. The 'Pem' (as the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is affectionately known) is one of the two types of Welsh Corgi, the other one being the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, believed to have come from the same ancestor with the Dachhunds. It is also believed that the Pembroke Welsh Corgi shares the same ancestry as the progenitor of the Keeshond, Pomeranian, Schipperke and Swedish Vallhund.
Welsh Corgis (also translated in Welsh as "dwarf dogs") were used as farm guardians, and eventually became sheep and cattle herders—a role they still play to this day. Today, owing to their intelligence and sociable instinct, Welsh Corgis primarily act as companion dogs. Ask the Queen of England—she has 16 Pembrokes. Welsh Corgi's Appearance Pembroke Welsh Corgi dogs are long bodied, with short legs, large erect ears (with a head like a fox's) and no tail (due to being naturally docked or docked at an early age). Eye color generally depends on coat color. If a Pem has light coat color, the eye color is rather bright and vice versa. Welsh Corgi's Temperament Pembroke Welsh Corgi are famous for their barking, so these dogs are very suitable for use as guard dogs. Pembroke Welsh Corgi dog are not aggressive in nature, so they don't need to be chained. Pembroke Welsh Corgi are ranked as the 11th most intelligent dog in Stanley Coren's The Intelligence of Dogs—they are actually intelligent enough to allow you to think that you are the boss. This, combined with their eagerness to please their masters, makes Pembrokes easy to train. Their sense of humor make them popular with everyone—they always want to be close with humans and cannot resist every chance to play with people or with other dogs. They make obedient, protective, active family members—especially around small children. Welsh Corgi's Grooming Despite their full furry appearance, Pembroke Welsh Corgi are very easy to maintain and require no more than simple fur brushing and combing twice a week to remove dead fur. They only need to be bathed when necessary. Welsh Corgi's Health Being around people most of the time, Pems have a tendency to be obese, which will later put pressure on their long spines.
