Don't be fooled by their size - Pembroke Welsh Corgis make great farm dogs. Their low-riding bodies make them perfect for herding
livestock as they can nip at their heels and avoid getting kicked by sheep or cattle.
You may recognize Pembroke Welsh Corgis as Queen Elizabeth II's favorite dog breed.
They're smart and affectionate, but don't have as much intense energy as other herding breeds, so they're great for families
They're one of the smallest herding breeds at 10-12 inches and 24-30 pounds and have short, muscular legs and stubby tails.
There's a good reason why Golden Retrievers are such a popular breed: in general, these dogs are extraordinarily well-mannered.
In spite of their name, Australian Shepherds were first bred in the United States in the 1840s, about the same time that the Gold Rush was happening in Australia.
They are lively, devoted, and friendly animals because their primary function is to herd livestock.
They will require a lot of physical activity and mental stimulation, and they may be reserved around unfamiliar people.
