I love my Aussie corgi, she's very energetic. We do love in an apartment, but we have a private backyard and we take her to dog parks. She's very vocal, but very affectionate. Everyone that meets her falls in love with her, She's very friendly like walk up to a stranger friendly, but will alarm us when someone is at the door or if she hears a noise outside. I learned how to groom her because she does shed a lot and her hair grows quickly. She's very energetic, so it helps that my husband loves to go on runs and takes her with him. She's great with kids and other pets!
