Overview
Revered as cattle herders and guardians of the home, the Corgi's origins are obscured by folklore. This breed garnered popularity and notoriety due to long time fancier Queen Elizabeth II.
Character
The Corgi is low-set, sturdily built, hardy, and strong. They are a breed of substance and stamina. Corgi's exhibit an expression of interest, intelligence, and vivaciousness.
Temperament
The Corgi breed is loyal, devoted, alert, and playful. They are family oriented and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. If they become bored or lonely they will become destructive. The Corgi is a very vocal breed. They do best in a home with older, considerate children. They are wary and suspicious of strangers and will fearlessly protect their family, property, and territory. They do well with dogs and other household pets they have been raised with.
Care
Regular brushing with a firm bristle brush is recommended. Bathing should only be done when necessary. The Corgi breed is prone to such health issues as PRA, hip dysplasia, epilepsy, Von Willebrand's disease, and spinal problems. It is important to not overfeed.
Coat
The Corgi is a double coat breed. The outer coat is long, coarse, straight, and longer and thicker around the neck, chest, and on the shoulders. The weather-resistant under coat is thick, short, and of medium length.
Training
Early socialization and obedience is recommended. Corgi's do not do well with repetitive training; sessions should be short and varied. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training should be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
The Corgi is suited for apartment or city living provided they are sufficiently exercised and mentally stimulated. They enjoy securely leashed walks and family play sessions. They excel in agility, obedience, conformation, and as therapy dogs.
Weight
Male: 25-30; Female: 24-28 lbs

Annual cost of owning a Corgi puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Corgis true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

I have Corgi puppies for sale! See My Profile
I am a 56 year old man that fell in love with this wonderful breed of dog in 2006. Mentored by Charlene Bearden from Georgia whom had been breeding these dogs for over 55 years at that time. Yes, longer than I have been alive basically. Purchased my male Arrow VII from her in July of 2006, he is 3rd generation champion. His AKC registration and certificate is posted with this profile vio nextdaypets.com. Bow the female was made a gift to me from Charlene Bearden 3 years later May of 2009. Although she is also pure bred I do not have her certs or registration. Charlene 86 at that time was ill and could not provide them. This is Bows last litter, it is her third litter and that is the limit I have established for my dames. That way they can live a healthier life as bearing babies takes so much out of them. Will be more than happy to provide anyone with pictures of a male from the first litter and female of the second litter. In fact they are the profile picture that represents cosmic corgi breeding. Also I can provide testimonials of previous owners if you would like to contact them. These dogs are given the utmost attention, care, love and healthy environment and diet one could expect. I consider them my grandchildren and would hope to remain in contact with anyone that would wish to own one. It is important to me that they are loved and taken good care of.

We just had our new corgi puppy checked by our vet and he has giardia. It is curable because we caught it early. Do I have an obligation to tell the breeder, who in my opinion should already know because our vet said he got it from his mother. Should I put his info anywhere so others who buy pets from him know to get their pup checked as soon as they get it?

You do not have any obligation to tell the breeder of your puppy. However, as a breeder I would hope that if there was something wrong with one of my puppies my new puppy owners would tell me. As I have good relationships with my new puppy owners, I would feel there would be unsaid tension between you and I if you never told me. Sometimes Giardia does not show symptoms as quick in adult dogs as it does in puppies. So your breeder may simply not know. Please contact him and let him know so that he can have the rest of the litter checked out, and mamma dog as well. Also whatever other dogs he owns can be checked. You should ask for the contact information for the other puppy owners of your puppy's litter and contact them yourself to make sure they know. Posting it anywhere else is up to you, but it would depend on my breeder's reaction to the news as to whether or not I post in any public forum about the Giardia. As it is as easily caught as Parvo or Kennel Cough. I hope your puppy is okay and I hope that all the other puppies, mamma dog and whatever other dogs the breeder may have are all okay.

Do Corgis shed? Do older Corgis adjust to a new family, a new home and a new environment as well?

The Corgi breed does shed, however, a light brushing twice a week for 20 minutes and a high-quality dog food will keep the shedding to a minimum. Adult Corgi's can adjust and adapt to a new home with minimal problems as long as the owners are dog-savvy and have done their research on the breed.

Corgis shed an unbelievable amount!! I have two now and they are worth every bit of work but you have to vacuum daily!

Looking to purchase a Merel coat Corgi offered below $600. Is this a fair price? I do not believe they are "papered".

If they are not papered then it is a fair price. If the dog is not papered or is a mixed breed, then the price of the dog should be around what it cost for the owner to get the puppies vaccinated (average is $100 - $300) plus what the price of a spay/neuter would cost (average $250), so $600.00 is pretty fair.

Do Corgi's get along with children and cats?

The Corgi comes from the herding group, which means that they were bred to herd sheep and cattle, just like Border Collies. Although these dogs are wonderful companion and work animals, there can be some trouble when it comes to children and small pets. However, is the dog is raised with children and small pets, such as a cat, the dog should do just fine. But please note that this breed has instincts that make them want to chase things that are running away, or giggling/screaming as young children do. So puppies and young dogs have been known to nip at the heels, but with positive reinforcement training and lots of socialization, the Corgi should do just fine in a home with children and small pets like a cat.
