The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a low but strong body. This breed, like its cousin Cardigan Welsh Corgi, is referred to as "true dwarfs" since they are characterised by a short stature due to a condition called achondroplasia. Pembroke Welsh Corgis are the smallest of the herding group, weighing 24 to 31 pounds and standing 25 to 30 centimetres. Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a foxy appearance. They have oval-shaped eyes with erect ears. One can differentiate a Pembroke from a Cardigan through their tails. The Pembroke's tail is shorter and almost docked, while the Cardigan’s is long.
Most Pembrokes come in red, sable, fawn or black, and tan varieties. They sport a double coat, which is comprised of a thick undercoat and a longer topcoat. They shed throughout the year and shed heavily during autumn and spring. Pembrokes have fluffy coats and wear a fairy saddle on their backs. Daily brushing is recommended to keep their coats clean especially during seasonal shedding. When it comes to bathing, some people prefer to bathe the Pembrokes regularly to help control the shedding. However, baths can be done only when necessary. It depends on your preference.
Other than coat grooming, basic care must also be observed to nails, teeth and ears. Clean the ears regularly to prevent infections due to bacteria growth. Teeth should be brushed at least two or three times a week to avoid dental issues. And nails must be trimmed once or twice a month to prevent painful overgrowth.
