Breed Description: Cardigan Welsh Corgis are long, low-set little dogs with a wide skull and fox-like head. They have large erect ears and an acute sense of hearing. Cardigan Welsh Corgis are sturdy and powerful, and are easily distinguished from the Pemboke Welsh Corgi by their "fox's" brush tail.

I have two of the best Pembroke Welsh Corgis. The tan one is Mia and the black is Wolfe. They are brother and sister, and every time they travel in the car they always have to be touching each other and the sleep with their heads crossed.

Riggs is 6 years old and is a Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Riggs was adopted from a Corgi rescue mission when he was four years old. Riggs loves to eat! He actually had his thyroid checked before we were allowed to adopt him, because he was so overweight. He's now on a doggy diet. Riggs is a happy guy, and he gets along well with other animals and people. Friends offer to dog sit for us, because he's so lovable!
