So true.....about the shedding. I did know that because I have friends who have Corgi's and had researched the breed for several years before I got one.

Chloe did chew alot when she was a pup but she never chews anything now.

PWCorgis is exactly right about "shutting down" with negative repremanding. Chloe is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo stubborn....if I raise my voice or get angry with her, it only makes her behavior worse.

She is the funniest dog....she WILL NOT come to me if I call her. I have to say "let's go" or give her a treat to get her to come. She was even like that as a little puppy....she wouldn't come and when I'd reach out to pet her she would jump away...she's tease....still is!!!!!

I'm also not sure if I would want to have two Corgi's at one time....LOL I do have another dog (a Dachshund). I got him about a month after I got Chloe when she was 12 weeks old , so they grew up together. They're the best of friends, but she is the BOSS for sure!!

Oh..another thing I'd like to point out is they're a big dog in a littler body. They have no fear!!

Fozzie is half Corgi =D he absolutely inherited the Corgi personality, as well as the legs, and the ears.



I have 4 friends with Corgis, one of which has 3 Cardi's. I love this breed, they are awesome dogs! They're so funny and comical, all the time. They love to goof around, and they love to play games. This is a breed with loads of energy (as with any herding dog), and they're surprisingly fast with those tiny legs! At the same time, Fozzie is incredibly hard-headed and smart. It takes a leader with lots of training experience to live happily with a Corgi, I feel. Many of the Corgi's I know try to demand attention with barking, beyond barking for fun, and that needs to be corrected before yappiness becomes a habit. They're challenging dogs in quite a few aspects, but definitely fun to live with and very loyal, as long as you're dedicated to working with the pup.

Is you friend getting a Corgi from a breeder? If so, make sure the breeder checks hips & elbows of breeding stock, because they're very pre-disposed to dysplasia.

Late to this thread, hope you guys dont mind that I chime in.
I have 2 corgi's.
Darci is 2 1/2 yr female and Egan 5 1/2 old male.
Shedding would be the biggest turn off for people, but mine dont shed any worse than my gsd did.
I vacuum furniture once a week and floors twice weekly and brush every other day. I would be better off if I brushed every day and made them stay off the couches. LOL

Neither one of mine are big barkers though, only at the mail man and to alert me when someone is in the drive way, now they will bark at each other occ. when they play but not to extreme.

They are very smart, I did find you have to stay one step ahead of them, and remain leader of the pack esp. with a bossy female like mine.

The are great family dogs and just love everyone.

Err... this thread is halfway dead, but I'm going to revive it because I have a corgi too! I've got a "fluffy." His name is Shippo and he's 8 months old. >^^;<

Shippo is ADORBALE! Are 'fluffy' corgis just another hair type? Are they accepted in the AKC? I'd love one of those, lol! My friend has a Corgi who they are breeding, but I don't know if I want one. She said I have 1st pick, but we'll see once we get here. I'm thinking I want something Non shedding...lol.

Basically, if you breed two dogs together that have the submissive "fluffy" gene, you can get fluffies in the litter. The dogs can be completely normal-looking. When reputable breeders end up with fluffies, they are sold to pet homes with a spay-neuter contract because they are severaly faulted in the show ring. Here's a link to the "fluffy" page at the PWCCA. They probably explain it better. >^^;<

Aww, well she's adorable! I'm looking for one I can show, but If I ever want just a pet, I'll definately look into that! How CUTE! Thanks for the link.
