I was just curious about what age can you tell if a tri corgi will be black or red headed and how can you tell by their markings!?

tri colored puppy breader wanted (Illinois, Indiana)

I'm interested in a tri-colored corgi puppy.  I want to contact a breeder in the area, because I'd like to know about the puppies BEFORE they're born so that I can request the tail not be docked. …Continue

I also think that it is based on their size. I am would have to say that he (Tebow) is definately large (not fat). Just as I was told one time about the Shih Tzu that had he wasn't a Shih tzu because of his size. I am sorry but he was a Shih Tzu and there are many breeds that range in small, medium and large sizes. It is important that you watch their weight and make sure their is some form of excercise daily.

The main thing with any Corgi and their weight is also what size they will be when adults. There are many Corgis that are smaller or bigger than "standard" and that does make a difference. All my Corgis are "standard size" BUT there are smaller and larger ones too. I have seen a breeder who had very LARGE Corgis and they would definitely weigh more than the 24#-(female)-30#(male).  Sage weighed 19# yet at 18 months and is exactly where she should be at #24 for the age she is now(5). Her Mom Livvy also weighed this. Is your Corgi big????

Guys, don't forget how vital to their longevity and health that a lean weight is! Our breed has both orthopedic issues and DM (Degenerative Myelopathy) is becoming so prevalent. Please do not rely solely on your vets opinion to know if your corgi needs to lose weight - I worked for vets for years, and vets know they can lose clients when they talk weight loss, sad but true. If you look down on your dog and cannot see an hourglass shape with a waist, if you run your fingers lightly over their ribs and cannot feel ribs, your dog is fat! Does not matter what the dog food bag says to feed, they have no idea of your dogs activity level, existing weight, or breed, and they are in the business of selling kibble. Fat corgis are becoming the norm not the exception. If you love your dog and want them to live a long healthy life, do not kill them with "kindness".

Jet is only 16 lbs full-grown, 14 months, but she came from a breeder who was purposefully breeding them small. I agree many corgis get far too fat - incline to the barrel shape - but if you and the vet think she seems fit and not fat then you should be good:) Jet does not get table scraps, though I do feed her apple & carrot bits, as well as frozen cubes (think ice cube tray) of non-fat yogurt (her "doggy ice cream").

I have to say that my boy at 5 is not overweight even though he weighed in at 39.6 the last time I took him to the vet. I asked them about that and their comment was that he is fit. I don't give him table food and control what I feed him on a daily basis. The one thing I do know is that he loves to eat celery and has taught my Shih tzu to eat it and ice as well. But I clearly know that his weight is in proportion to his size.

Comment by Jeff & Cheryl Weber on February 20, 2015 at 10:28am

If she's that heavy at that age something is wrong.  Willow is correct but also one should ask; what are you feeding her?  There should be NO people food.  NONE!  I knew a family who just couldn't resist giving their puppy table 'treats' and they had a 50lb corgi before they knew it!  Please don't kill your corgi.

Tilly should weight between 22-24 lbs as an adult. You definitely want to exercise her more! They don't gain a ton of weight when they grow up. How much do you feed Tilly?
Comment by Karen Knuff on February 20, 2015 at 1:55am

My little girl Tilly weighs 25 lbs now at almost 7 months.  Does anybody know how much more weight they usually gain.  People keep asking me, but I don't know the answer.  The truth will come out in the pudding as the saying goes, but maybe a rough idea would help me out.  She was the first born, so i would expect her to get heavier.

When people see my little tri colored corgi Darby they ask me if he is a husky and when I tell them they are like I have never seen a tri colored corgi or even heard of the breed.
......I have had more than one person ask me if my tri is a beagle mix :o)
