Welsh Corgi – Pembroke


Pembrooke Welsh Corgis from the Dorn Roschen’s Corgis in New Hampshire dornroschen@prodigy.net

The Pembrooke Welsh Corgi is a popular pet, slightly smaller than the Welsh Corgi Cardigan. They make good family dogs but will not tolerate inconsiderate treatment – make sure any children understand the play and treatment rules.  If they nip at your heels they’re only trying to herd you into a group.  They make good apartment dogs if walked on a regular basis.  They can be wary of strangers, and may be more excitable than Cardigans.  Their coat will shed a couple of times a year and they only need a weekly brushing.

PWCCA Rescue Contacts



We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies and Internet sellers may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA ( ita408@comcast.net), and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
