Origin
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi and its close cousin, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi are both believed to be relations of the Swedish Vallhund, a similar short-legged canine. Like their Swedish counterparts, they were originally used to drive cattle and were popular with famers during the 17th and 18th centuries. Now, this breed is well liked by royalty – the Queen has owned Pembroke Welsh Corgis for many years.
