Cardigan Welsh Corgi
"Another Gift from the Fairies"


Folklore says that the two Corgi breeds were gifts from
the fairies.  This fanciful description may be just as plausible
as some of the many other explanations, as to the origin of both
breeds.  Questions, being more plentiful than answers, might
it have been the ubiquitous Viking invaders in the 9th century
who introduced their Swedish Vallhunds to local farm dogs?
Or, was it the ancient Celtic people who brought the dogs to
the highlands of Wales more than 3,000 years ago?  The
name "Corgi" Etymologists say, comes from Welsh,
"cor" meaning dwarf, and "gi" meaning dog.

Interbreeding was common between the two varieties of
Corgis until 1934, when the Kennel Club (England) classified
the two as being separate breeds and breed standards.

These good looking Corgi dogs are small, but are
very powerfully built, with big bones, and they are capable of
surprising speed and endurance.  Cardigan Welsh Corgis are
even tempered dogs, very loyal, affectionate and excellent with
children.  A Cardigan Welsh Corgi puppy is very intelligent
and trainable.  They tend to bond to the whole family.  Being
rather active, they need exercise several times a day.
Regular grooming helps control the shedding.
