Cardigan Welsh Corgi
The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is not as popular as their sibling, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, but they make an excellent pet. They are even said to have slightly better temperaments than the Pembroke. Cardigans are loyal, affectionate and good with children. They are intelligent and easy to train but need a firm hand when it comes to nipping, as they are prone to do so due to their ancestry as herding dogs. Wary of strangers and possessive of their owner's property, they also make a good watch dog. Cardigan Welsh Corgis are easily distinguishable from the Pembroke with their wide and wider set ears, as well as their long tail. Pembroke's tails are docked completely, that is if they are even born with a tail. Cardigans reach one Welsh yard from nose tip to tail tip, which is why they are sometimes called "yard-long dogs". They have longer bodies than the Pembroke, and are much longer than they are tall. Their colors consist of red, sable, brindles, black, tricolor, and blue merle--which legend says came from fairies who brought the color in the night. They usually have white on them with an Irish pattern, but overbearing white is considered a severe fault. They are loving, intelligent, and are hard workers with their high quality obedience skills. They can often appear sprightly in character and are quite confident. Active and devoted, this little dog can be quite amusing in character and appearance at times. They get along with children and other pets, their sturdiness making them suitable companions for even large dogs. Cardigans are said to have the heart of a large dog in a dwarfed body, making them an ideal companion.
