In honour of the Queen, who, from this evening is the longest-reigning monarch in British history! We have dedicated our Breed of the Week to the Royal Corgi!
The breed was introduced to the Royal Family by Elizabeth’s father, King George VI, in 1933! So what has made them so popular with the royals? Well, Corgi’s are said to be easy to train, as they are highly intelligent. Don’t get confused by their stocky build – originally bred as herding dogs, Corgis are one of the most athletic breeds and they’ve been known to be shockingly fast runners. They are also said to make good watchdogs. They can be suspicious of strangers, and will be quick to bark if they feel that something is threatening their home and family.
Life expectancy: 12-14 years
Originating country: Wales
Temperament: Happy, Loving and Intelligent
Interesting fact: Queen Elizabeth II has owned more than 30 Corgis since she was a young child
