The Corgidor is a cross between two favorites; the Welsh Corgi and the Labrador Retriever and is recognized by the Dog Registry of America. The Corgidor is a dutiful watchdog and family protector who doubles as a fantastic family companion. Not much is currently known on the Cogidor, so owners should look to the histories and character traits of both parents to determine possible traits and health risks. The Welsh Corgi is indeed two breeds, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Closely related, the two are different in personality and appearance. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is an eager dog who is taller than his cousin, the quieter, smaller Pembroke. Both canines in this family are adept at herding sheep and are also skilled with cattle, a much larger animal for them to manage. Their size makes them perfect for the job, they are at ankle height and can coax the livestock along. A dog first documented in the time of the Vikings, their travels allowed members of the breed to venture to North America where they were added to the American Kennel Club roster in 1925. In 1934, they were separated into the Cardigan and the Pembroke. The Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog and was first developed in Canada to assist fisherman. Surprisingly, this breed nearly faced extinction in the 1880s when female Labradors were culled from litters in Canada due to their high tax rates. Thankfully, the Labrador was imported to England and America by this time and was gaining popularity as a hunting companion and retriever. The Labrador’s happy, easy going disposition make him an ideal family dog who has stayed top dog in the US, Canada, and England for several decades.
