Welsh Corgi Cardigan
In this topic, you can find some more information about the different Cardigan colours, and about the long-haired variety, the fluffies...
The Cardigan's origins lie in Wales. Their name refers to a place over there, called Cardiganshire. It is a very old breed that has a common history with the Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
Cardigans are loyal dogs that are very attached to their owners. They can't be more happy, then when they are next to you. No matter what you are up to, as long as it involves them, they're happy!
On top of that, they have a peculiar sense of humour and tend to make you laugh out loud at least once every day!
On the other hand, being a shepherd dog, they need challenges and regular exercise. No matter if you want to take them in obedience, agility, tracking, herding, or just for long walks, just take them out!
