The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a somewhat cloudy lineage. They have made a
good name from themselves as good working animals, - rushing small game, guarding
buildings, ratting, and herding. This last task is accomplished by biting the heels
of the cattle, then dropping to the ground to avoid being kicked. They are tough,
fearless little dogs, quick in movement despite their short legs.
These make excellent house-pets and are just as happy in an urban flat or
apartment as on a country estate. They are easy to travel with, which is a great
advantage in a pet. They have a natural desire to please and they like to be
included in whatever activities are going on around them.
This dog must be taken for daily walks and, as often as possible, allowed to
run free in an open area. Like all dogs close to the ground, the Welsh Corgi tends
to suffer for intestinal chills. Dry it well, especially the stomach and chest,
after it has been out in wet weather.
