Cardigan Welsh corgi Description
  The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is a low and long dog. It measure 36-43 inches long from the nose to the tip of the tail. It has a broad, flat skull, very large, erect ears, and a long, low-set tail. It has a straight topline and a deep chest with a prominent breastbone. It front feet are round and turn slightly outwards. Dewclaws should be removed and the front assembly is relatively heavy-boned, but not coarse. Its dark eyes harmonize with the color of the coat. Blue eyes are allowed only on blue merle dogs. Its head is broad between the eyes and tapers to the eyes. The teeth meet in a scissors bite. The Cardigan has a double coat that consists of a harsh, medium length outer coat lined with a soft, dense undercoat. Its hair is more abundant at the ruff, back of the legs and on the underside of the tail.
