- Welsh Corgi
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is the more popular of the two Corgi breeds (Pembroke and Cardigan). The two breeds resemble each other very closely (due to crossbreeding in the 19th century when both breeds were recognized as the same). The most prominent difference between the two breeds today is the Pembroke Welsh Corgi does not have a tail, while the Cardigan Welsh Corgi does.
Despite their small size, the breed has a lot of energy and will need daily exercise. They are a very vocal breed, which may be an issue for families that share a wall with neighbors (apartments, condos, etc.). Like most breeds, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi needs to be socialized while still a puppy to keep them from becoming shy towards strangers and other animals.
