Living Area: Cardis will usually do well in an urban or suburban setting if given enough attention from their human masters. The breed is very versatile, having been used traditionally for both herding and companionship purposes, and will be happy in whatever setting you place him or her in. However, care should be taken when integrating your Cardi with other household animals in a smaller apartment or house--Cardis can become anti-social when exposed to animals that they haven't known from an early age, and it may take them time to get used to their new companions. Outdoor animals (for rural Cardi owners) will be less of a problem, as the Cardi's instincts generally tell it to ignore or peaceably manage such animals.

About this Breed

The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is a small herding dog with a straight, weather-proof coat accented by a heavy ruff around the neck and a pair of jodphur-like tufts of fur near the hind legs. Its bone structure and general proportions are reminiscent of a Dachshund, and some breeders speculate that the Cardi has some Dachsund heritage from its largely mysterious origins (before its arrival in Wales.) The Cardi is often confused with its closest relative, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Although significant genetic differences exist between the two (breeders now believe that the Pembroke Corgi was crossed with Norwegian breeds during Viking invasions of England and Wales), the most visible difference is in the tail: Pembroke Welsh Corgis have very short of nonexistet tails, while the Cardigan Welsh Corgi has a long and ample one.
