Pembroke Welsh Corgi History
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is also known as the PWC, or Pem. It is a very old breed of dog. With roots that extend as far back as 1107 AD. As the name implies they are from Wales and it is said they were taken there by Flemish weavers. There is a fairy tale that states that two children were running through the woods and came upon a funeral for a fairy. Mourning fairies gave the two children two corgi puppies. It is also said they were used as horses for fairies prior to becoming herding dogs for humans. At the base of the haunches of Corgis, there is a line of slightly rougher fur that ancient Welsh lore states is the saddle line from fairy warriors.
They are obviously a herding breed, but are good with dog agility, obedience, and showmanship. Even though they are small they are very fast dogs.
Pharaoh Hound History
The Pharaoh Hound originally hailed from Egypt and is an ancient breed. Art and literature depict their ancient history. There is nearly a 6,000 year old artifact that depicts two Pharaoh Hound-shaped dogs hunting gazelles. These dogs were known to be companions and kings and nobles. Once they migrated from Egypt they were imported into Malta by Phoenician traders. There they were called the "Kelb tal-Fenek," meaning "dog of the rabbit," after the prey the local hunters used the dog to catch. The breed thrived and became the official dog of Malta. Even though this was a very old and ancient breed they stayed relatively obscure in the West until the 1930’s. They originally came to the States in 1967. They are still an uncommon breed.

All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems as all breeds are susceptible to some things more than others. However, the one positive thing about getting a puppy is that you can avoid this as much as possible. A breeder should absolutely offer a health guarantee on puppies. If they won’t do this, then look no more and don’t consider that breeder at all. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about health problems in the breed and the incidence with which they occur. We obviously recommend that you look for a reputable animal rescue in your area to find your new mixed breed.
