Corgi Bichon History

The Corgi Bichon is a mixed-breed dog that was created when an American breeder crossed a Cardigan Welsh Corgi with a Bichon Frise. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi, also known as the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, is a herding and sporting dog that originated in Wales. The Bichon Frise is a toy Spaniel that originated from the Mediterranean region. The Bichon Frise is descended from the now-extinct Barbet, and is related to the Campeador, the Coton de Tulear and the Havanese. The cardigan corgi and bichon frise derive from the same two lineages. The first Cardigan Welsh Corgi was shown at the Crystal Palace in London in 1885. By 1891, the Kennel Club recognized the purebred variety, and the Pembroke was imported into the United States. The Cardigan is a hardy, courageous and affectionate dog, with a cheerful disposition. The Pembroke is intelligent, friendly, energetic, eager to learn and easy to train. The animated gait of the Cardigan makes it an excellent family pet.

Corgi Bichon Activity Requirements

The Corgi Bichon is a smaller version of the Welsh Corgi. These two breeds are very similar in looks and personality, but the smaller size of the Corgi Bichon makes it ideal for city dwellers. The compact size of the dog also makes them a popular pet for senior citizens. The energy level of the Corgi Bichon is very similar to that of the Welsh Corgi. Both breeds are intelligent, but not overly active. They are better suited for walking or hiking than for running or playing ball. The small size of the Corgi Bichon does make them a good choice for apartment living, as long as the dog gets regular walks. If you are looking for a companion that will enjoy an active lifestyle, a more active dog may be a better choice.
