Cardigan Welsh Corgi Background Info and History
The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is an ancient breed that is believed to have been brought to Wales by Celtic tribes over 3,000 years ago. Cardigans were developed from the Teckel family of dogs, from which the Dachshund also descended.
The term corgi began to see use only in the 1920’s and was used to describe this type of low-slung heeler. Over the centuries, Cardigans were used as general-purpose farm dogs, guardians, and eventually became prized for their ability to drive cattle by nipping at their heels, or heeling. Cardigans are a medium-sized breed that was first recognized by the AKC in 1935.
