1. Corgis are wonderful dogs.

I have three and they do all those things in the video! LOL They are very happy little dogs.

3. Do they bite ankles?

I've heard that's their only downside.

5. They do when they are puppies.

You have to teach them not to do that. It is their natural instinct as herders to nip at the heels of the cattle. They learn very quickly though!

Adults aren't at much risk of being nipped, but small children running around are. Corgis are better with older children.

4. They are beautiful dogs, but incorrigible car chasers

 

Some people I knew tried all sorts of things to get their corgi to stop chasing cars. It's part of the breed's herding instinct. Unfortunately the dog chased after one car too many, got run over and died. I wish they had put up a fance to keep the dog from getting out on the street, but maybe they couldn't afford it.

6. Yes, they definitely need a fenced yard.

They love the thrill of the chase. Mine liked to chase skateboards! And they always make sure the yard is cleared of bunnies! LOL

They seem to outgrow that, though. The older ones are great about staying away from the road. We keep the younger one on a retractable leash, but she really doesn't need it anymore. She is just used to going out with it on.

14. My buddy had a few Jacks Russell's that like to chase cars...

I stopped quickly and they caught my car well actually they didn't quite expect me to stop. They ended up piling into each other in a site the that was so funny.

They couldn't quite figure out what to do with the car.

They are smart and adorable.

10. Me too, a definite big dog person, but I definitely have a soft spot for Corgis

 

and Beagles. They are kind of like the "Miss Marples" of the dog world.

and until now, I haven't been a Corgi fan. Had a German Shepherd and pugs and a Chihuahua mix.
