Pembroke Welsh Corgis


Learn more About our Corgis

We have 6 adorable Pembroke Welsh Corgis. Quigley, Lona, Molly, Eevee, Thorgi and Felicity are all red and white Corgis. They are our family dogs and very well socialized and loved.

Our dogs are not show dogs and are not just breeding dogs. They are part of the family and live in the house with us. They each have their own bed in our bedroom and are spoiled with all the delights of a loved family pet. They have regular visits to the vet and groomers. They always are getting new toys and always have their favourite chewsies.

All of our dogs have been vet examined and have excellent hips, eyes, and overall health. Quigley (our breeding male) completed the hip x-ray tests and was evaluated as ‘good.’ Our new male, Thorgi was imported from England and will begin breeding in 2019 provided he passes veterinary inspection.

When our dogs have puppies, they live in the house and are let outside for play and bathroom breaks. They are given toys, lots of cuddles, and are very well socialized and loved.

We only breed our females once a year so they don’t get over bred.


Quigley is our male Corgi from Michigan and is very smart and athletic. He is very trainable and knows many tricks. He can easily be trained and has an excellent play drive and ‘work’ ethic. He isn’t interested in many treats and won’t touch milk bones. He is mostly interested in play and attention. He will play fetch for a long time and loves to chase James on the atv. He loves to do agility and will jump a course of horse jumps as well as go up on the pedestal and table on cue. He understands many things. I’ve often thought he could be a dog for the movies because of his looks and train-ability. He responds to verbal cues and hand signals. Quigely also loves to swim – any chance he gets he is into the water, playing with waves or streams, and going for a relaxing swim.

He is a fluffy Corgi – and is a stunning dog that everyone typically comments how beautiful he is. Typically fluffy Corgis are shunned in the Pembroke community because they are not a breed standard and is a controversial topic, however they are beautiful and many people prefer their looks to a short hair Corgi. The fluffy gene is a recessive one. Because it is recessive, we have never had a fluffy Corgi pup when bred to Molly or Lona as they do not carry the fluffy gene. However, when we breed to our fluffy females, all of the pups are fluffy.

Quigley is a giant suck and loves being near people – he doesn’t like being left alone and he enjoys being snuggled like a teddy bear – which is a good thing because he is very fluffy.

Quigley’s birthday is May 24, 2008.

LONALona is from Pennsylvania and has been a complete baby from the beginning. She cried most of the way home from Pennsylvania and has continued to be our little princess (Lona is a Welsh name that means princess). She is a talkative dog and lets you know what she wants – she doesn’t bark for no reason, but she’ll give you a ‘woof’ in the morning to demand morning cuddles, or if she wants on the bed she’ll give gentle repetitive ‘woofs’ to make sure you know. She runs to ‘her humans’ for consolation on anything scary or unusual, but she is also very brave and willing to try new things and explore.

She is a very clever dog and is at the bottom of the pecking order. We’ve seen her be very sneaky with the other dogs – if she wants something they have she’ll entice them with a different toy and when they drop what she wants she’ll run and snatch it. Also if the other dogs are blocking the food and she wants to eat she will run over to a human and get their attention, then go over and show them that she needs us to get the other dog to move out of the way – she is very clever and makes it easy to understand what she wants.

Lona is the fastest and most athletic of our dogs. She can zip way ahead of the other dogs when chasing the atv or playing in the backyard. She also learns very quickly – patience goes along way with her, but it doesn’t take many tries for her to understand. She is the type of dog that sometimes gets overwhelmed with training and tries to sit in your lap for comfort or hide – once she realizes that she can do what you ask she gladly takes part in any requests. She is the only dog of ours that doesn’t like swimming – she doesn’t like to go near the water, and definitely tries to run away at bath time. Although the last couple times near water she has gone swimming (without any persuasion) so perhaps she is warming up to the water. She has the most unique and entertaining personality of our dogs.

Lona as a young dog (less than 4 yrs old) always wanted to be outside and running around. Now however she is a ‘house dog’ and usually declines going outside in the backyard and prefers to spend the day in the house, but she is always up for going for a walk.

Lona’s birthday is June 6th, 2013.

MOLLYMolly is from Pennsylvania. She has an adorable face that just sucks you in for cuddles, you can’t resist her. Molly adores people and attention – she will run over to anyone and immediately flop to her back so you can rub her belly. She is the most snugly of our dogs. You can tuck her in bed with you and she won’t move an inch, she gladly sucks up all the cuddles you have to offer. She’ll even stay tucked in bed and sleep in if you let her.

Molly likes to play and bounce about, but she isn’t as active as our other dogs. She enjoys playing fetch and has learnt a few tricks. She is a monster for food and will inhale anything – banana, blueberries, peas, etc. She also enjoys taking toys from around the house and stuffing them in the food dish to try and hide any kibble from the other dogs. Occasionally we have found a ‘chewsie’ in the pocket of a coat or pair of pants left on the floor – we’re pretty sure Molly is a culprit.

She is also more timid than our other dogs. She is the first to run away of a scary looking object, loud noise, and when the other dogs figured out how to jump the fence during winter when the snow was piled high, Molly was too scared to try.

Molly could be happy as an apartment dog because she mostly wants to snuggle, however she does enjoy sun bathing in the backyard. She and her pups also do well on their own… all they want is human companionship.

We call Molly the ‘fun police’ because she will take toys away from the other dogs if they are being too playful. She would be happy being the only dog in the house. Anyone wanting an apartment dog that will be by themselves we recommend a Molly puppy.

Molly’s birthday is May 30th, 2013.

Eevee is from Illinois. We went all that way to get her because she is an adorable fluffy. She is bred specifically to have fluffy puppies – a lot of people say they want a dog that looks like Quigley. Even though fluffy Corgis are considered a fault (a controversial topic in the Corgi community), we know that fluffies are wonderful dogs and are happy to offer them to the people that prefer them.

Eevee has settled in to be queen of the pack, or tries to be… Molly still puts her in her place sometimes. She is very cuddly and also playful. She can be snuggled like a teddy bear and during car rides she wants to lay in your lap the whole way. She loves to explore and run around. She has completed one set of training classes at K9 Central and did really well with all the tasks – she is one smart pup.

Eevee is a hilarious dog – she ‘sings’ when she wants to complain about something. For example if you are cuddling her but bring another dog up on the bed she will sing to let you know she disagrees. She also loves chasing lasers and is a very playful.

Her birthday is June 23rd 2015, and had her first litter of pups in spring of 2017. They were all fluffy puppies of varying degrees of fluffiness. She had 8 puppies.

Felicity

She is our youngest female and came to us from Tennessee. She is a beautiful fluffy with gorgeous markings. She is AKC registered.

She is a playful pup that loves gentle snuggles. She will curl right up into your neck when lying on the couch. She loves belly rubs. She is a bossy one and tries to rule the house. She likes to sit at the water or food bowl and try to control it. She also will try to boss you around to get the cuddles she wants. She is a pretty timid dog and isn’t as brave as some of the others. She is also a bit chubby and will overeat if we let her.

Her birthday is January 2, 2016 and had her first litter of pups in winter of 2017/2018, she had 5 puppies, all fluffy. One one of the puppies had a blue eye. Two were tri colour and 3 were red and white.

Her puppies are on the same contract as Eevee’s – for purchasing a fluffy Corgi.

Thorgi

Thorgi is our new fluffy Corgi from England (registered name is Pancake). We are so excited to have Thorgi because he has a tail. It gives him a fluffy fox look.

He is the sweetest dog – so cuddly and playful. He is always up for going in the backyard but definitely wants to play and be around the other dogs. He probably would not be happy has a single dog.

He is very timid and won’t do the stairs if there are more than a couple in a row. He can do the 3 steps in the backyard on the deck, but despite our efforts to teach him the basement stairs to our living area, or the stairs in the barn to education room he is just too scared.

He has such an adorable face and is very cuddly. He has a similiar temperament to Felicity (cuddly, playful, but quiet).

His birthday is January 7, 2017



Most Recent litter:

Felicity had her first litter of pups on December 20th 2018. She had 5 puppies.

We congratulate Felicity, and have started a Flickr album to update about her puppieshttps://flic.kr/s/aHsm9PxKfv

Next litter:

We plan to breed Lona, Eevee, and Molly in spring/summer of 2018. Felicity will not breed again until winter of 2018/2019.

Waiting List Information:

  • Our waiting list for a Molly or Lona puppy is currently at 15 people as of Jan 29, 2018. 
  • Our waiting list for Eevee or Felicity puppy is currently at 14 people as of Jan 29, 2018. 
  • It is really hard to know when people on a list can expect a puppy. There may be 10 people on a list, but people often choose to pass on taking a puppy for a variety of reasons (they aren’t ready, we don’t have the gender/colour they want, etc). Once on the list, you can pass up to 5 times.
  • For example, in winter 2018 we had 5 fluffy puppies born and 8 people on the list. However only 2 people on the list took puppies (many were waiting for a summer puppy). We then offered them to the short hair list and all puppies were then sold.

Pricing & Contract

  • first and second deworming (completed before you pick your puppy up) is included
  • first vaccinations (completed before you pick up your puppy up) is included
  • spay/neuter procedure (to a max of $250) (we reimburse you)
  • first Rabies vaccination (to a max of $50) (we reimburse you)

See the contract for more information. A $100 deposit is required to secure your spot on the waiting list.

For the spay/neuter and rabies, the puppies are too young to have this done before they leave us, which is why you can choose to get this done with the vet of your choice when your pup is old enough. Then we reimburse up to the maximums.

You get to choose your own pup. Choice is determined based on the waiting list order. We will do our best to tell you about the pups personality and colour. The pups do change colour and became more red (like their parents) as they become adults.

All of our dogs are fairly active. We recommend considering a Corgi provided you will have time & space to take them for long active walks and free running occasionally in parks. Corgi’s are smart dogs and need to be kept busy – we always make sure our dogs have toys to play with and bones to chew. Molly puppies typically make for good apartment dogs and are lower in energy. Lona puppies typically are more energetic and only do well in apartments if they get regular walks and visits to off leash dog parks.
