Corgi Puppies: Cute Pictures And Facts

Puppies

There’s a reason why corgi pups are the kings and queens of internet memes. Those short, stubby legs! That head tilt! The weird, long, bread loaf bodies! Those adorable, emotion-filled faces!

All the cute pictures above might be enough to inspire a desire for a Corgi pup of your very own. However, you should learn about Corgis before you take one home and make sure they’re the right pooch for you and your family.

And remember, you can find just about any breed of dog at local shelters and rescues, including Corgis. You can also check out DogTime’s adoption page that lets you search for adoptable dogs by breed and zip code. Adopt! Don’t shop!

If you’re thinking about going from just giggling at Corgi memes to owning one IRL, here are a few things you should know!

Corgis are royalty–or at least they are loved by royalty.

Highly intelligent Corgis have been a favorite of the British Royal Family for more than seventy years. Queen Elizabeth II has owned more than 30 during her rein. That’s right–30 Corgis!

Start thinking of regal names for your Corgi now.

2. Playtime Looks Like An EPIC Battle

Have you ever seen two Corgi pups playing? With their long, wiggly bodies and stout legs, every jump and butt wiggle looks like a launch into a tremendous charge.

Corgis can be high-energy, playful pups and even nip a bit due to their herding background.

3. Their Faces Tell You EVERYTHING

Poker face? What’s that? Corgis wear their heart on their sleeves, or rather, on their adorable faces.

Don’t expect your new Corgi puppy to have any kind of chill when seeing new places, friends, or even mirrors.

4. You Will Have To Choose Between A Cardigan And A Pembroke

Did you know there are actually two breeds of Corgis?

Corgis were bred into two separate types–the Cardigan Welsh Corgi and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. They were not recognized as two separate breeds of pup until the 1930s.

The good news is they are both incredibly cute and smart herding dogs.

5. They Can Get A Little… Round

Although Corgis are a naturally athletic herding breed, your Corgi will almost definitely have an affinity for snacks that aren’t on the doggy menu.

If you decide to bring home a Corgi pup, be sure to give them plenty of exercise to keep them trim and ready to battle the next time they see themselves in the mirror.
