I just wanted to ask if anyone else that has a Tri-Color Pembroke gets the same questions as I do! Now don't get me wrong, I love it when people come up to Jiji and I when we are walking, asking to…Continue

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!?

I am scoping out collars and leashes and am having a hard time figuring out what colors would look good on her. I am partial to greens, blues, and purples, but I'm not sure how those would look on a…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????
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.
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.
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.
