Welsh Corgi Cardigan - genetic tests

Welsh Corgi is one of the smaller breeds native to England, reaching a height of 25-30 cm and weighing 10-11 kg. Despite their smaller size, Corgis are strong, athletic and lively herders. Long walks, working or sporting activities are therefore a must for these dogs. They are affectionate and sociable without being needy. Once one of the most popular herding breeds in the world, they are now mostly kept as companion dogs. There are two separate breeds, the Welsh Corgi Cardigan, which is slightly larger and has a longer tail compared to the smaller Welsh Corgi Pembroke with a short tail.
