Cardigan Welsh Corgi

For about 70 years, the Pembroke and the Cardigan Welsh Corgis are known as separate breeds. There are many theories concerning the Welsh Corgi. One states that both of the varieties descended from Swedish Vallhunds, brought in the 800's to Wales by the Vikings.

Another theory says that the Cardigan variety is older and was brought to Wales in 1200 B.C. by Celtics people, as the word Corgi comes from a Celtic word that means dog.

The only thing that is sure about this breed is that it has been developed in Cardiganshire in Wales. This breed was used as a cattle driver, a vermin hunter and a farm guard. It's only after 1930, that the two varieties started to be bred separately.
