Cardigan Welsh corgi

Original Name: Welsh Corgi Cardigan
Presentation
Out of the two breeds of Corgi dogs, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi is the lesser known one. Cardigans originate from Cardiganshire, Wales and they were later brought to the British Isles. The Cardigans were used to drive, rather than herd, scattered groups of cattle. The Cardigan''s small stature was very useful for the dogs as they were able to nip at the heels of cattle and duck the any kicks. The Cardigan is less popular today then the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, most likely due to the Royal families interest in the Pembroke. Today, Cardigan’s can be found in agility, fly ball, tracking, and showmanship dog shows.\r\n \r\nHealth\r\nCardigan Welsh Corgis can develop many back and spine issues, due to their small and long shapes. Hip Dysplasia, Degenerative myelopathy, and Intervertebral disc disease can be common in Cardigans. One, way to help your Cardigan with some of these issues, is to keep them at a healthy weight. Cardigans who become overweight put extra stress on their joints, and spinal cord. Hip dysplasia causes dogs to limp and favor their back legs. Degenerative myelopathy destroys the sheath around a Cardigans lower spinal column. Intervertebral disc disease is caused by a disc in the spine not functioning properly. Cardigans have a life expectancy of 10-12 years.\r\n \r\nTemperament and Training\r\nCardigans are affectionate, loyal, and great family pets. These dogs need a vigorous workout despite their size. A long walk or herding session can work to tire a Cardigan out. Cardigans are very friendly and outgoing around their owners, fellow pets, and new canine friends. These dogs can be difficult to train, but other than being stubborn, Cardigans are eager to please and loyal companions. Cardigans can make great watchdogs, being very alert and having a tendency to bark when alerted by a noise. The Cardigan is a great dog, devoted friend and loyal pet.\r\n \r\nSize and Appearance\r\nThe Cardigan Welsh Corgi is a low set dog about 1.8 times long than it is tail. Heavy-boned and muscular, the Cardigan is full of power for its small size. Males average around 10-13 inches tail to nose tip, and 30 -38 pounds. Females are slightly smaller with 10-12 inches from tail tip to nose tip, and 25-34 pounds. Cardigans come in a rainbow of colors from black to a blue merle to a red merle. Unlike the Pembroke, Cardigans have kept their long fluffy tails, giving them a fox like appearance.
