Origin of the corgi
Corgi dogs appeared at least 3000 years ago in Wales. The corgi is closely related to the Alaskan Malamute, Husky Sibir, Samoyed, Phoc Soc (or Pomeranian),… and many other Nordic breeds. The Corgi breed is most likely derived from the Vallhunds (Swedish dwarf dog) in the pre-Viking era.
Pembroke Corgi and Cardigan Corgi
For thousands of years, the Corgi had only one variety, called the Welsh Corgi. In the 10th century, the ancient Corgi began to be mated with the Vallhund, a dwarf breed from the north, to form another branch. The first Corgi newly appeared in Pembrokeshire (Wales) should be called the Pembroke Welsh Corgi (or Pembroke Corgi for short), the old Corgi is called the Cardigan Welsh Corgi.
