As a diehard cat person, it’s not too often I shriek with excitement over dogs, their typically deemed opposing counterpart. But there are a select few dog breeds out there that I simply can’t deny are too pure for this world—one being the delightful corgi. Officially known as the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, these babies are small housedogs that are strong and athletic as well as loyal and affectionate without being too over the top. Said pups originated from Wales and derived their name from the Welsh words “cor” and “ci,” translating to “dwarf” and “dog,” which definitely checks out.
Corgis are known for their distinct and mildly-comedic builds. A typical male corgi will measure about 10 to 12 inches at the shoulder and weigh 27 to 30 pounds, as well as possess short legs, muscular thighs, and a deep chest ready to brace anything thrown its way. Though long and low to the ground, corgis will surprise you with their swift agility and sprightliness. These buds can also come in a variety of colors, such as red, sable, fawn, black and tan and with or without white markings. A corgi owner can certainly count on their companion to be both a trusty guard dog and playful sidekick, as well as a loving and sensitive bundle of fluff to curl up with at the end of a long day.
It simply cannot be denied that one look into the big, beady eyes of a sweet corgi would make anyone melt. They’re honestly such silly looking guys—they’re like if you took a fox, stretched out its torso and reduced its leg size to a quarter of what it was. The vivacity of corgis absolutely shines through in the form of tattoos, too. They just exude joy and comfort through their large, perky ears and immense smiles. If you’re a corgi owner or just an appreciator of the carefree energy corgis bring into the world, we have a wide selection of corgi tattoos that’ll definitely brighten your day. Aside from getting these babies inked, make sure to give the next corgi you meet a nice pat and remind him he’s the very best boy.
