· Corgis were developed in Wales, the Cardigan being the older of the two. It is conjectured that the Celtic, or pre-Celtic, tribes of central Europe were responsible for bringing a Cardigan-type dog to Wales around 1200 B.C. It is descended from the Teckel or Dachshund family of canines. The Cardigan is the Corgi that comes complete with a tail (it wags), whereas the Pembroke does not possess a tail (it wiggles). www.barkbytes.com/history · The first pair of Cardigans imported to the United States (by Mrs. Roberta Bole of Cleveland, Ohio) arrived in June, 1931.· The Cardigan Welsh Corgi was admitted for AKC registration in 1935.
