* The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a long and eventful history. Most experts are agreed that its forefathers arrived to England from the continent with Flemish weavers in the XII century. Eventually these foreign dogs were interbred with local canine population and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi was born. Other theory assumes the breed traces its pedigree to the Vallhund, Swedish cattle dog, which was imported to Wales by Vikings in the IX and X centuries. Unfortunately the full truth of its origin can be hardly discovered as the first breeders were much more preoccupied by working prowess of their dogs than by their genealogies or conformation.
The major assignment of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi was herding and guarding cattle, sheep and horses. Thanks to its quick reflexes and low-slung statue this dog was treasured for its capability to nip at the heels of domestic animals and still evade being kicked. It was also utilised to drive sizeable flocks of geese to market. Little by little its sweet disposition, extreme loyalty and unpretentiousness in care made this breed a widespread household companion in its homeland.
