I cannot abide a corgi.

Mainly because my cousins had one that was so vicious they had to muzzle it IN THE HOUSE!

It was truly the meanest dog I have ever experienced...and before anyone goes there, it was treated like a prince. They got him as a puppy and loved him to bits...hence the fact he never got a bullet. They would shut him in a room when visitors came and you could hear him growling, barking and bashing against the door in his frenzy to taste fresh meat.

Oh man. Chevy is cute!
My girlfriend wanted a Corgi or Great Dane.
I ended up getting her a Great Dane since the girlfriend likes to go walking late at night. And man, she's nuts but I love her.
Shoulda gotten her a Corgi...less food, less poop, less vet bills.

There are bad examples of every breed. This poor dog was certainly the exception to the rule. I'm sorry you had a bad Corgi experience because my wife and I have had countless good ones.

My Corgi is a Service Dog She soo people friendly I have to be careful about taking her into public! Please Dont judge a breed by 1 bad dog! In this breeds case they are Too Friendly I would say its your cousins fault!

LOL!!

My wife is 5 feet tall and weighs maybe 100 pounds. Chevy always looks huge next to her because she's so tiny. I meant to say that already because I thought he looked huge in the picture also. For some reason, the effect is magnified when they're sitting on the couch together.

Chevy is actually small for a Corgi according to our vet,and based on some other Corgis I've seen. Thankfully he doesn't have weight issues so far,and we're going to try and keep it that way.

He's a lovely dog!!

I've always liked Pembroke Corgis though never owned one. I did train two of them in basic agility for someone, a few years ago. They were very fun to work with. Noisy, though. They barked a lot when excited!

I do believe the Cardigans (larger Corgis, with tails) have more of a tendency to have a bit of attitude. I've never met a Pembroke who wasn't utterly sweet-natured.
