    Until it's time, does anyone own any corgis?

    A corgi is a wonderfully underrated family dog...active, intelligent, great with kids and fairly easy to train.

    One of the riding instructors at my stable has one, his name is Larry and he is absolutely lovely.

    I'm actually looking forward to introducing him here. I'll probably create a new thread.

    Is it? I thought corgis are pretty popular.

    BEWARE CORGI! They are a very popular breed in SE Asia and are assembly line cranked out by puppy mills. Most are extremely inbred with numerous genetic defects.

    I suppose it depends where you live.

    Asias puppy mills are not relevant...op is in OHIO....pretty easy to find a good well bred dog of any kind here in the states with a little research.

    Exactly. Do your homework. Don't take someone's word on it.
    But don't discount Asia. The legal animal trade is booming with hundreds of routes to and from the US and Europe. And you can trust the certificates and breeders reports from here about as far as you can toss a Kenworth.

    He's here, now if only he would sit still for a picture as an introduction.

    I said the exact same thing. I have my mother to thank for helping me find a breeder. It was either this one, a boxer, a pit, or a bully.

    Bred as sheepdogs, I think, so it kind of makes sense. They weren't bred to be sitting toy dogs.

    The runt won't let me go to bed after sitting in the car for hours to go get him.

    oh gawd...i could have went on for pages telling you how great boxers are. I used to say, too many great dogs, i will never own the same breed twice....im on my second boxer...
    They were bred with those short legs so when cattle kick, their hooves go harmlessly above the dogs head.

    Congrats on the new pooch...theyre great little dogs with lots of heart...i dont think they realize theyre not big.

    He is already barking at everything, he went tumbling down the yard trying to chase the chihuahua.

    I certainly will, he is from show lines. I am going to train him for agility and maybe conformation, haven't decided on that yet, contemplating rather or not to put him up for stud.
