This site has a cardi pem mix. I was wondering if I could find any pics, and I did!
Do they know he's mixed with Cardigan for sure? I'm not really seeing it physically. He has a tail but lots of Pems aren't docked, especially backyard bred ones. He does have the forelegs more commonly seen in a Cardi but my Shippo does too and he's a purebred Pem, a backyard bred Pem I might add. I don't know what they're talking about in terms of "Cardigan character" because I haven't been around any so I don't know how different they are in that regard. Shippo is also almost 13 inches tall and weighs 32 pounds so I think he could easily be labeled as a Cardigan-Pembroke mix if he had a tail.
Oh dang it I didn't realize this was an old post >./p>
I know this is an old post but for people still looking I figured I would share. I have two Pembroke Cardigan crosses. Their moms are sisters and they are 1/4 Cardi and 3/4 Pem. I specifically bought crosses actually for a few reason. I always liked the look of a Pembroke, but they shed A LOT and they gain weight extremely fast. Cardigan's don't have as thick of a coat and it is actually softer. Although they eat more food they don't gain weight as fast. There is a breeder who has pure Pems, but occasionally breeds a few litters of crosses for people who want this kind of look...knowing it isn't a pure bred, but a corgi regardless. After having both kinds of a corgis and crosses, I think the crosses have the best of both corgis. But ofcourse I am bias...
My cardigan's coat is probably twice as thick and sheds twice as much as my pem's does. That sounds like a line a breeder says to keep people buying mixes for pure bred prices...
Maybe for some. Mine weren't pure bred prices and that was just something I noticed after having both types and then my current two.
That is where I got them actually haha. Heidi and Snoopy are Ollie's parents and Bratz and Cash are Arthurs. She is a great lady and we live near her in Orlando so we could go back and forth every week to check on on the babies.
Here is a link to the the history of the Pembroke. It explains their history, what part of Wales each breed came from and also explains by Pems have the docked tail. It was not to make a difference between the 2 breeds, it was done for tax purposes. Pems are the younger of the 2 breeds. I felt this gave the best description of the Pems and their history...it follows everything I have read regarding the 2 breeds especially the Pem.
