I am sad to say that I had to put my beloved Sheldon down on March 4th. He lost the use of his hind legs - xrays revealed a herniated disk, hip displasia, and arthritis throughout his spine. Emergency surgery or steroids were recommended, but I could not see doing this with all the other issues. Sheldon would not have been able to be the wild, crazy, active corgi that he wanted to be. My heart aches, sometimes I think that when a pet passes, their pain is transferred to our hearts - there it sits waiting for God to heal. I encourage owners to have your babies x-rayed if you can afford it, especially if they are getting older - this way you have an understanding of their condition and can at least get them pain medication. I never would have thought my boy was full of arthritis with how active he always was - never. Sheldon was a 9 year old puppy at heart.
Howdy and good tidings! I am new to this community, and am very excited to share and learn with all you wonderful corgi people of Souther California. My name is Linda and my son is Peluchin (Pel-ooh-cheen) and we are from Los Angeles. Peluchin is a fluffy corgi mix. I have no idea what his other mix is, but...I wouldn't be surprised to learn is is part wolf! Hence, his nickname Teen Wolf. Let's be friends =)
My Toby, in 2011 weighed roughly 50 pounds when we went to the vet. I worked with him and changed his diet between then and the next visit. In 2012 her weighed 43 lbs. Since then I have moved from my parents house into my own and he is no longer around my moms dog, he looks huskier and I think he put it all back on. But Toby is only three and his parents were larger. I am trying to keep his weight at a decent point becuase he has a crocked knee/front leg and he will get arthiritis sooner in it compared to other dogs.
Ohh, nice. Just a big-boned family I suppose. Wow, from the pictures he doesn't look 40lbs at all. He looks more like 25lbs. The one wearing the green-bandana looks like 40lbs. =P
I have seen a lot of smaller tri colored corgis, but my Jasper is huge (around 40lbs)! He was the biggest pup in his litter, which was a mix of tri and red/white. I have noticed from going to corgi meetups that there seems to be a range of sizes of corgis. Some look petite, around 20-25 lbs and there's some closer to Jasper's size. Guess it just depends on the breeding/size of the parents.
Haha, I sure hope he isn't overweight! Based on that chart he seems to be okay. He's the one in the red bandana here: http://mycorgi.com/photo/536014-10101533763492521-1416534532-n waistline is pretty tapered. He is a purebred and I know his dad is enormous. We recently met up with his sister sibling from the same litter...she's pretty giant as well lol. Maybe just a big batch?
Coloration doesn't really have anything to do with size when it comes to Corgi's. Normally, Pembrokes are genetically smaller than Cardigans. Cardigans average 30-40lbs while Pems average 20-30lbs... and no, the tail does not weigh 10lbs. =P Most Pems have docked-tails, but some still have a full-length tail. And as far as I know majority of Cardis have tails, unless the owner decides to dock their tail. Tri-color Corgi's are more predominant in the Cardigan family as opposed to Pems, but that doesn't mean they don't exist in Pems.@ Eric Kim: at 6 months old and at 40 lbs, I'd actually monitor his diet and exercise. 40lbs at several years old is not uncommon, but at 6 months that seems a bit overweight. Of course I am assuming that your Corgi is pure bred?Some info: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-C5lZ-i6alOM/UIroLqK4OyI/AAAAAAAAASM/70Cgx...
I have a tri and he is huge (for his age). At just over 6 months he is approaching 40lbs.
