About this Breed

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is the twentieth most popular dog in the United States. The breed originates from Pembrokeshire, Wales, and according to legend, sprang from the lairs of elves and fairies. This mystical dog was said to have also carried fairies into battle and pull their carriages. The breed is descended from the Vallhund and is from the northern spitz dog line. The Corgi is the smallest dog in the herding group. They are affectionate and love to follow their owners. They have a strong herding instinct that can at times encourage them to give chase and to nip at ankles.
