    So!
    I was offered pick of the litter for my moms friends new Corgi pups. It’s a bad backyard breeding situation of sorts but the pups are able to be AKC registered, so at least they have that going for them. Their dogs are the only experience I have with Corgis, and the five of them only listen to me. -_-

    How hard are they to train? Are they known for attacking chickens? Good with kids? I’m lost.

    All I know about Corgies is that a guy had one at his kiosk at the Harvard Square Subway Station entrance. It sat on the counter and got petted by lots of people. It never left his side when on the ground.

    I’ve got a corgi!

    He is very energetic, but also very smart and listens well. If you put in the training, then they are typically well-behaved dogs.

    He isn’t big on snuggling, and from what I’ve heard, most corgis aren’t. He will cuddle at night or if someone has food, though ;)

    They need a lot of interaction. They’re a herding breed. They need to run and to think.

    Overall, I really love my corgi. He’s one of the best dogs I’ve ever had.

    I've known them to be a bit aggressive. Only known a few personally, but I've heard from others too that they can be aggressive.

    They are usually nice dogs, but prone to joint and weight issues.
    My old roommate has had a few. They're always been sweet, but all of them had wight issues (over weight) and joint/back issues.
