Welsh Corgi Pembroke

  • HISTORICAL SUMMARY:

IT'S  one  dog breed  native of  Wales, as well as being the Queen's official breed  Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom,  which has seven copies and a quarter of its palace dedicated mainly to its "companions".  Bred for work since the year 920, they were initially used to herd cattle, hunt mice and guard farms. It is speculated if its history is not linked to that of the Swedish vallhund, possibly taken to the  Great Britain  by the  vikings. Later in history, they came to be seen as companion dogs, although they are still used for work.
