DLCC Corgis

Sully

Sully is our most playful, and energetic corgi. Sully is the newest addition to our corgi family. He likes long walks, playing with other corgis and ice cubes... Especially ice cubes. He loves to travel between his two homes in Kansas and Minnesota.

Emi

Emi is the matriarch of our corgi family. Although she has the instinct to work cows, her skills aren't quite there yet. Her favorite things include chasing Sully through the house and snuggling while a movie is playing.

Hub

Hub is old dad among our corgis and is the progeny of our very first corgi pair, Chloe and Tuck. Hub loves to be outside and watch the days happenings from his perch on the porch.

Molly

If Hub is the old dad, that makes Molly the grandma. Her parents go back to Chloe and Tuck as well. In her old age she likes to nap on the porch or in her bed, yet still has the spirit of a young pup. She loves to go for long ranger rides, help with the chores and play with the younger corgis.

Tuck

Tuck was our first male (second corgi) and together he and Chloe were the stars of DLCC Ranch for many years. He was truly the kindest dog and would never pass up the opportunity to guilt you into belly rubs.

Mellie 1.jpg

Mellie

Mellie is our youngest female and like all teenagers, she loves the spotlight and for things to go her way. Her favorite thing is to ride on the ranger and help do the daily chores.

Chloe

Chloe was our very first Corgi, and left a lasting impact on our lives and operation. She could often be found helping us move cattle during the day, and curled up in our laps during the evening. Full of character, her intelligence was only questioned when she got the treat jar stuck on her head.

About the Breed

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi, one of two Corgi breeds, was first recognized as the smallest of the American Kennel Club’s Herding Group in 1934. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s history can be traced back to the 10th century, which ranks them as one of the oldest dog breeds.

Not to be confused with its close relative, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a friendly and fun-loving dog while also extremely intelligent. Telling the difference between the two breeds can most easily be achieved by the tails of the Corgi. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi will most always have a docked tail, while the Cardigan will have a full tail. The Cardigan is also a bit larger, and has larger ears. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi will generally have a coat color of red, sable, fawn, or black and tan. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi can have coat colors that are red, sable, brindle, black and blue merle.

The word Corgi in the Welsh language means “Dwarf Dog”, which definitely works given the Corgi’s small stature. However, they are surely not short on personality. Pembroke Welsh Corgis have been the preferred breed of the British Royal family for over 70 years, as Queen Elizabeth II herself has owned over 30 Pembroke Welsh Corgis during her reign as Queen. You can read on below to learn more about the Pembroke Welsh Corgi dog breed.

When purchasing a lovable Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy, it is essential to be aware of all characteristics of this breed. Looking for a puppy to bring into your family is an exciting process, but having the knowledge of what to expect with any dog is the key to successful integration into your family.

Pembrokes have multiple colors 

Red, Fawn, Sable, Black & Tan

Pembrokes are very smart, sensitive dogs who respond well to training and mental challenges. As herding dogs bred to move cattle from one place to another, they are fearless, independent workers. A Pembroke without a job will often assign himself work, like herding children or his fellow dogs. They make excellent watchdogs, with acute senses and a “big dog” bark. Families who can meet the Pembroke’s need for activity and togetherness will never have a more loyal, loving pet.(AKC)
