As its name suggests, the Pembroke Welsh corgi developed in Wales, in the Pembrokeshire region. The Pembroke corgi as we know it now separated from the Cardigan corgi in the early 1930s. The gift of a Pembroke corgi to the Queen of England and her love for this breed helped popularize these dogs as family pets. Even many people who did not like dogs have fallen in love with corgis thanks to Tasha Tudors books and paintings.
The word "Corgi" has different meanings. In Celtic it means "dog" or "dwarf dog" ("cor" dog and "gi" dwarf). Regardless of the meaning, Corgi were originally used as general farm dogs, especially good with livestock.
These animals are active, intelligent, and guardians. They are usually friendly and very loyal to their family, but they are not among the most sociable of dog breeds.
Pembrokes tend to be reserved around strangers and aggressive around unfamiliar dogs. Therefore, it is very important to socialize these dogs from an early age in order to avoid aggression and shyness problems in adulthood.
