Welsh Corgi "Sakura"

Product 11 of 48

Genetic analysis have shown that the dog started developing from the wolf about 135.000 years ago. Yet it is highly unlikely that the wolvess were simply domesticated. Contrary to dogs they loose their tameness when they become young grown ups. It is assumed that there had been some wolves that were more trusting and thus dared to go near the upcoming settlings of men. They discovered this way an ecological niche, because there always had been some leftovers. Thus the more trusting wolves had a selective benefit and over thousands of years they evolved into their own species: The dog. Humans were able to breed these for special purposes and thus ensured their survival and expansion.
One of these purposes was known in Ancient Egypt already: Hunting.

The Welsh Corgi is a race that stems from Welsh herding dogs that were used with cattle or pony herds in the 12th century. The name is derived from the Welsh word "corgi" describing a "small" resp. "low dog". As a companion dog the corgi is well adapted to humans and is a perfect family dog even for small children.

Our plush corgi "Sakura" too is rather small, but nonetheless a perfect playing companion with wonderful fluffy fur. It is very patient and accompanies every adventure, as long and interesting as only a child can imagine.
