I received a lot of comments about how small my female Corgi is, not seeing many Corgis around town I had nothing to compare her too, when I bought my second Corgi seeing the parents on sight I could see what people were talking about, my girl Corgi at 1.5 yrs old weighs 18lbs, the pup I just got is a boy and at 11wks old weighs in at 12lbs.
What's the average out there?
This is from the akc standard, but of course there are always going to be dogs that are oversized and undersized. Henry will be 2 in July and is 29 lbs.
Weight is in proportion to size, not exceeding 30 pounds for dogs and 28 pounds for bitches. In show condition, the preferred medium- sized dog of correct bone and substance will weigh approximately 27 pounds, with bitches approximately 25 pounds.
Olive just turned 1 and she weighs about 23lbs and people think that she looks small for a Corgi. I think she looks just right:)
Our first Pem, Siri, was quite small -- under 20, maybe 18-19.
Mine are big. My female is top-of-the-standard at around 28 pounds (I got her down to 27 and there isn't an ounce of extra flesh on her, so 28 is probably her best weight). My male is oversized and looks bad at under 35; 36 is his best weight.
There is a little peanut Corgi in our agility group. She only weighs around 18 pounds. I think the people her owner got her from breed for agility and some agility folks breed them small on purpose so they can run the lower courses. I'm not a fan personally, but there you have it.
You can also breed two normal-sized parents and happen to get a bigger or smaller than expected pup out of a litter. It happens.
I have been told she would be good at agility because of her size, I have started a little course in my back yard to try it out. She seems to like it so far.
