The Welsh Corgi Pembroke is a breed of dog originating in the UK. They have long been used on farms as working dogs. The Pembroke is known for its long torso and short legs, and ears that stand straight up on its head. Its tail is short or sometimes absent. Pembrokes are bright, active dogs that love exercise, but they can also be very wary. The British royal family keeps Pembrokes as pets, and they are consistently popular dogs the world over.
