The corgi (or Welsh corgi) is a small breed of dog. It comes from Wales. Queen Elizabeth II has some corgis. There are two breeds: the Pembroke Welsh corgi and the Cardigan Welsh corgi.

Corgis have a long torso and short legs, large bones, and a very short tail. Some corgis do not have tails.

Corgis were originally bred as herding dogs. They are very active and like exercise. They are intelligent and have good memories.
