New pup!

Last week a corgi mix came in to the rescue where I volunteer. Of course her being a corgi mix, corgi/jack russell, I think, I had to at least foster her. But, of course, once she was home, and…Continue

When I got Sam he was a precious 20lbs, but upon today`s vet visit to pick up his heart worm meds I asked the tech working if she could weigh him because I`d suspected he`d gotten bigger. I was…Continue

Corgi possessiveness?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Anna Morelli Apr 23, 2012. 7 Replies

Sam is super possessive of me, and very protective around new people and dogs. Sometimes if I`m sick or not feeling well he doesn`t even like my family coming near me, and will hardly leave my side…Continue

Profile Information

About Me:
Hi! I`m Maddie. I`m 22 years old and from South Georgia. I`ve loved corgis for over a decade and after a very very long wait have finally acquired my first. I run an etsy shop where I sell tote bags decorated with, among other things, all kinds of corgis.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Sam Wesson is a Pembroke Welsh corgi with lovely floppy ears and a long waggy tail. He`s a very laid back purebred that was found running as a stray and was recently adopted by me from Lake City Humane Society in Lake City Florida.

Ruby Roux is a Welsh Corgi/Jack Russell mix with loads of energy and personality to spare. She was found running at large in Lowndes Co. GA, then was transferred to ACT of Valdosta, where she was later adopted by me.

Sam and Ruby are the best of friends and enjoy palling around the house, and dragging me down the street on walks. Even though they`re short, they obviously think they`re sled dogs.
I have:

Thank you for your friend request :-)   I'm happy to hear Sam is doing better.  When you adopt a dog you really don't know what experiences may have prompted certain behavior patterns to develop, but with love, a stable environment and clear guidance they learn to relax and drop some of their defenses. I'm sure he was looking for someone like you.

Thank you for the friend'ing!  Sam is just adorable.  Thanks so much for adopting him.

The lupine ancestry is apparent only in the kitchen, or in the presence of a moving soccer ball.

then you'll be interested to learn that the expressed Fibroblast Growth Factor 4 retrogene responsible for breed-defining chondrodysplasia in domestic dogs contains a silent point mutation absent from the source gene in domestic dogs, but present in wolves from eastern Europe and the Middle east (see "What happened to your dog's legs" in Corgi Jokes).

I don't really know much (just good at faking it... I should run for office or start a hedge fund...?).

Search this site for "ears" or "taping" -- some breeders tape-up the ears if they're slow to stiffen.  The window of opportunity may be past.  I don't know.  Ask Joanna Kimball?  some of the other breeders here?  I know I've seen this discussed here.

Google "Belyaev experiment" "fox".  Floppy ears is a juvenile (neotenic) trait that does not occur in nature, but it's among the juvenile traits that appear with domestication.  I believe some of Belyaev's foxes showed floppy ears, and all they were selecting for was tameness.  This whole suite of juvenile characteristics appears when you select wild animals just for tameness.

Sam looks killer with the floppies, but might hear better with prick ears, and they way they aim them is very expressive.

Ears are usually up by 2 months.  Sometimes you see a corgi with one floppy ear -- very endearing -- if you ever get videos of the ears going up and down, do post them!

I agree, he looks a lot like a purebred pem except for the rounded, floppy ears, but let's see how he is at 1 y.o.  If he ends up with legs just a bit longer than standard, that's my fantasy dog physique -- like an Australian kelpie -- there's a dog on here somewhere, a "border cardi" -- border collie x cardigan.  

He's a real find, you got lucky.  We always wanted a pem with a tail.

your drawings are amazing!

Thats cool that sam has his don't see that to often

Welcome Maddie and Sam! I love your drawings. Sidney has his tail too, so I love seeing the tailed corgis in your drawings.

What a cool dog.  I love to see Pems with tails.  I'd bet on a lab x Pem mix though, because of the ears.   Are the legs a bit longer than Pems'?

Mixes are supposedly healthier than purebreds, averaging 1 year longer lifespan when you control for size and stuff like that.

Sam reminds me of Lady, a Golden x Pem mix, the dog who first got my wife interested in corgies.
