Fact One: They’re royal!

We think this is one of the most commonly known facts because Corgis have been pictured so often with the Queen of England. She has really popularized them without even knowing or trying. Queen Elizabeth II has had over 30 Corgis in her lifetime. Across the pond, we tend to think their royalty is why so many Americans searched “Corgi puppies for sale near me,” in attempts to grab a piece of royalty!corgi puppies

Fact Two: There Are Two!

Did you know there are two different types of Corgi puppies? Yep! There’s the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. They are considered two entirely different breeds because they come from different ancestors. The best way to tell them apart is with their tails. The Pembroke doesn’t have one and the Cardigan does.

Fact Three: Have You Heard That They Herd?

Kinda hard to believe that these little ones were once herders, but they were and they were darn good at it. Back in the 10th century, pastures were considered common land, so there were no fences. In order to keep cattle together, the Welsh Corgis would nip at their legs to herd them.

Fact Four: Sprung from Spitz Dogs

In 1107, Flemish weavers migrated to Wales and bred the Spitz-type dog with the original Cardigan Corgis. The result was Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppies.

Fact Five: They Got Their Individuality

There were two types of Corgis registered as one in 1925, which caused a little controversy in the breeding community. After about a decade filled with a lot of back and forth, they were finally recognized as two separate breeds in 1934.
