The Pembroke Welsh Corgi and Cardigan Welsh Corgi are two completely different breeds. They both have wide, expressive faces, tall pointed ears, and short stubby legs but the Pembroke has no tail and the Cardigan does! The taillessness is a gene, not the result of surgical adjustment. If you breed a Cardigan and a Pembroke together, it's possible to get a half tail out of the deal! If you can believe it, they were bred as cattle dogs. The short legs keep them out of reach of the back legs and powerful kicks.
