Corgis, whose name means 'dwarf dog' in Welsh, come from Wales in the U.K. They are a very popular breed, well known for their short legs, and were originally cattle dogs on farms. Their height meant that they could easily nip at other animals' legs and ankles to keep them moving... A technique that some of their pet descendants still have today.If that doesn't convince you not to adopt one of these little monsters, then here's a list of reasons to help you make up your mind.

If you do decide that you want a Corgi, see if you can find one in a shelter before deciding to buy. You can find purebred dogs in shelters just like any other!If you want to get a Corgi puppy, make sure that you don’t support the abusive puppy mill and backyard breeder industry by getting your new family member through a trusted breeder. Ethical breeders will want to meet you several times before they sell you a puppy, will let you see the puppy with their mom, brothers and sisters and will raise their dogs in a home environment.
