They're equally at home tending flocks as they are following the Queen of England's frocks.From the Inside FlapThe origins of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi date back to the 12th century?these powerful little dogs have been helping around the farm and snuggling up with people at home for hundreds of years. Developed to herd cattle in Wales (the word Corgi has its roots in the Welsh words for dwarf and dog), this hardy breed is distinguished by its short legs, long body, foxlike head, pricked ears, bright eyes and lack of a tail. Low-set, strong and sturdily built, the Corgi is a diligent worker and a dedicated family dog. A small dog with a big personality, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is fearless, quick and active, and he is headstrong and an independent thinker. Remarkably alert, Corgis are ever-vigilant guards, and because of their small size and attentive, affectionate nature they make delightful dogs for a house or an apartment.About the AuthorSUSAN M.
