About Me:
I love my Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
No
About My Corgi(s):
Spencer is almost 3 years old, and a big handful. He is energetic, loves attention, and isn't afraid to seek it out.

He's also very large, he's not fat, but he does weigh in at 37 pounds. He's a bit taller, and longer than the other Corgis we met, which we thought might be the happen when we got him. His parents and uncle were all large corgis too. His uncle was a 40 pound corgi that liked to catch rabbits and squirrels for dinner.

Spencer has learned how to beg for pets and attention... He lays next to you or on you, and stares at you. Then comes the vocals, small growls, barks, and other Corgi sounds. Then his feet start to twitch like he was dreaming, while continuing to vocalize. If that doesn't work, then comes the self-pets, he will dig under your arm and move his head around while your hand rests on him.

He also grew up with large squeak toys, as we had a Golden Retriever already. So since they were too big to bite, he learned to jump or dig on the toys to make them squeak. He still does this occasionally. Sometimes digging, headbutting, or pouncing on squeakers. All the more funny, because Spencer uses both front feet at the same time to dig, so he has a bit of a "leap frog-looking" action when he does it.

I stumbled upon your post as I was researching skittish corgis when I realized it is about my recently adopted Rufus. We are the adoptees of Rufus from Texas (Austin) we live in Southern California. Rufus was driven out here and we have had him about 3 weeks. He is a big boy (40 lbs) we are reducing his food a bit and increasing his exercise routine. We walk almost 2 hours per day. We have a small female Pembroke named Maggie who is of course, the sweetest dog in the world. She loves all dogs, people, cats and not afraid of a thing. Then comes big Rufus! He's afraid of the light switch, rain drops, very sensitive and yes, no training. He had a few very rough days and we didn't think we would keep him. It we are trying again with a different approach. He snapped at a child but the child approached him too fast with hands in his face. He went after a "intact" male but he was a lost dog, so there were some fear issues I am sure.
Rufus is very skittish to say the least. Not a cuddler like our female Maggie but takes bathes ok and walks like a champ.
We are working on recall, sit, stay, stopping at crosswalks etc.
and it is true what was originally posted, he hates having his picture taken! He loves the hose and we plan on taking him to the beach this week. I will try to get him to pose for a photo. Ay feedback as far as handling the fear issues are welcome!!!
Corgi cheers from Southern California
