Cardigan Welsh Corgis have been around for thousands of years!


The Cardigan Corgi is definitely the older of the two breeds, that much we know for sure. When we look deeper than that, though, it gets a little complicated.

Historians have yet to determine the real origins behind the breeds, but there are some pretty solid theories.

One theory for the Cardigan Corgi’s origin states that their ancestors came across from mainland Europe to Wales on the boats of Celts around the year 1200 BC.

It’s said that these dogs were part of the Teckel family of dogs, which includes the modern-day dachshund.

If this is true it means that Corgis have been in Wales for more than 3000 years
