My neighbor has one.  She said it's still pretty rare.  It is mini-me Corgi-ish.  Julia is right.  It's much smaller than my Corgi, and ears don't seem to be as large (proportion wise), but long body and short legs seem very similar to Corgis.  :)

I was on pinterest and I saw the lancashire and thought wow that looks familiar so I decided to look into the breed and had a ton of corgi breed mixed in all the info!

This is what Wikipedia says:

Precise details of the origin of breed is unknown. However, it is accepted that a type of Welsh Corgi was used to drive livestock to the north west of England from Wales.[4] In the Ormskirk area, a type of black and tan terrier called the Manchester Terrier was introduced which resulted in what is now known as the Lancashire Heeler.[1] The breed has been known in its home county for over a hundred and fifty years as a general purpose farm dog, capable of both ratting and herding cattle.[4]

 

So the Corgi is thought to be one of the parent breeds of the dog. It does look similar, but it's only 6 - 13 lbs. Like a little mini-me. I've never heard of this one before. Where do you see them?

I mean are they related in any way? I see a lot about them with corgis. They look so much alike you would think it was just a different colored corgi.
