The Welsh Corgi or as sometimes called the Corgi is a small breed dog that originated in Wales. This breed was originally used as a herding dog but as with most breeds, lost its original purpose in today’s society. There are two types, namely the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. The Pembroke was particularly popular with Flemish weavers that moved to the UK at around the 10th century. However the Cardigan was more popular with Nordic settlers, particularly Swedish.
