The breed standard general description of the Pembroke is: "Outlook bold, but kindly. Expression intelligent and interested. Never shy or vicious." If there was ever a summary description of the breed, this would be it. The Pembroke is "a big dog in a small dog's suit." The Pembroke's personality is playful and fun-loving, but also can be protective and tenacious. Pembrokes love attention and can be real clowns. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a very intelligent and versatile companion animal. The most suitable home for a Pembroke is with an owner who is looking more for a companion than just a decoration, someone who is looking for a dog who is as happy going for walks around the neighborhood as for romps in the woods. Though the Pembroke is an energetic breed and eager for new sights and smells, Pems are just as content to keep their owners company at home. With a modicum of exercise they are just as suited to city life as to life in the country. Pembrokes are very people oriented and should not be left in the backyard only to be occasionally petted. They are at their best when incorporated into full family life.
