Hypoallergenic No
The Pembroke is one of two Welsh Corgi breeds, the other being the Cardigan. Several theories exist regarding the origin of these very old breeds, one being that they were brought to Wales by the Celts. Another theory is that they are descended from the Swedish Vallhunds, which were crossed with the local Welsh herding dogs. The Pembroke is a herding dog, originally used to drive cattle to pasture.
Body type
The body is medium length, not short coupled, with well-sprung ribs that taper slightly when viewed from above. The distance measured from the withers to the base of the tail should be approximately 40% greater than the distance measured from the withers to the ground. The chest is broad and deep, well let down between the forelegs. Topline is level and does not fall away at the croup.
The coat of medium length, fluff layer is short and thick, outer coat is long and rough, can withstand a variety of environmental conditions. The body hair of unequal length, collar, chest and shoulders slightly thick and long, body by Mao Pingfu. Forelimb ventral, lower abdomen and hindquarters ventral hair long. The coat is preferably straight, but allow for corrugated. This breeds easily faded hair, if hair dense, health, pruning is good. If seasonal receded fluff layer should not be seen as disadvantages. Hard hairy, too short, thin flat smooth coat is a very serious shortcomings. Mao Pengsong -- the ears, chest, legs, feet, lower abdomen, the hindquarters of hair very long, very many is one of the most serious defects. The dog should be in the natural state of the display, in addition to modified foot and cut off the tentacles, not allowed to trim hair.
The outer coat is a monochromatic red, sable, black and yellow brown, with or without with white markings. The legs, chest, neck ( or partial or collar), snout, and the bridge of the nose, lower body with white is allowed. Seriously affect the quality of hair as follows: canine coat with white, red or black markings; hair blue, with a distinct blue or bleaching of the color is too bright; eyes, blue eyes, eyes, noses and lips margin dark reddish brown or grey.
Outlook bold, but kindly. Never shy or vicious. The judge shall dismiss from the ring any Pembroke Welsh Corgi that is excessively shy.
Tasty Tidbits
Pembroke Welsh Corgi short-haired dogs, is convenient for outdoor activities, even the level of the dog is only cut beard and feet hair, not like other dogs every year to spend a sum of money of beauty. Because of the variety and no body odor, as long as a day to a simple combing, once a month to have a bath.
