Not one of the most well-known dog breeds in the United States, but having owned two, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi is my favorite breed of dog.
The "Cardi", known as the Corgi with a tail, is often described as a big dog in a small package. They are a long and low-to-the-ground herding dog and a very popular breed in Wales. There is a resemblance to the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, which lacks a tail, but they are two distinct breeds.
A Cardigan is an excellent family dog. They seem to gravitate towards children. They are excellent watch dogs. The large rounded ears can hear a leaf dropping to the ground in your neighbor's yard.
This is not the dog for someone who cannot deal with shedding or may have allergies related to such as they do shed year round.
The Cardigan is a very intelligent breed of dog with a bark that defies it's size.
If you choose this breed it's important to keep their weight under control because being overweight can lead to back problems.
This is the type of dog who will gleefully run in the park, or plant itself in front of the TV with you and is equally at home in an apartment or house with a yard.
