The Pembroke Welsh Corgi
We Corgis are a breed of considerable antiquity. Our direct ancestors were brought across the Channel in 1107 by Flemish weavers at the request of King Henry I. They needed a smart herding dog for cattle and sheep that wouldn’t eat them out of house and home... and we fit the bill. Our early progenitors are said to have a resemblance to the old Schipperkes, and sprang from the same family that includes the Keeshond, Pomeranian, Samoyed, Chow Chow, Norwegian Elkhound and Finnish Spitz.
My site has some helpful links to Corgi information and resources... and a lot of fun information about us noble little dogs. We are a part of history that goes back over a thousand years, and there is a wealth of lore about us who, according to Welsh children’s tradition, have been steeds for fairies.
