Anyone have one or know anything about them? Wondering if there is any difference in temperament between the Pembroke and the Cardigan?

I don't think so. They're both really neat types of dogs. Good energy, smart and cute as all get-out. My first two dogs were Border Collie/Corgi brothers. BC coloring and temperment, shrimpy little legs. A friend of mine said they were "dogs on castors." We called them "KorgiKollies." I'd have more in a minute (so how did this beagle/basset show up here?!)

I have had Katie since she was 4 months, she is now 2+ years. My only Corgi experance is her. She very bright [service dog trained] loves people, not to happy being around large dogs. 2 times a year she sheds & sheds & sheds so get a good vacume! Katie is the pembroke... She loves to play, thinks she is a big guard dog.
Others that I been around excell in Agility, flyball & of course obed.

I know that they are both head strong breeds. Both the Pembroke and Cardigan are working and high energy dogs.

I have a Malamute/ Cardigan Corgi Mix

What adorable pics!!! My aunt had one (Pembroke) years ago and it was the most loving, playful little dog. She was very much the little worker dog and tons of energy, very obedient and easy to train.

Thank you.
She's a funny dog to watch in the back yard. She walks along the wall we have back there and also used to climb trees. We've gotten so used to her big body and little legs that when we take her outside we get asked so many questions. What is she? Where did you find her? It's funny and she is wonderful dog!!

I also have a Pem corgi, I do know that the cardis can be a bit more reticent(sp).

If your looking for one might I suggest the Corgi rescue...they do a good job of evaluating the dogs and placing them in homes.
