|ANNOUNCING THE CHEREE KIRKBRIDE MEMORIAL GRANT FOR IVDD RESEARCH We are proud to announce that the CWCCA has donated $5000 to the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine Department of Neurology to help fund a project that will be analyzing the DNA of Dachshunds looking for genetic markers that predict the risk of developing intervertebral disk disease and to identify genetic factors that might correlate with recovery of spinal cord function. This project is a collaboration between the veterinary schools at Texas A&M and North Carolina State.|

|NEW ROM/ROMV (VERSATILE ROM) POINT SCHEDULE Now in effect and posted at ROM Submissions. Thank you to the committee and to all of the members who took the time to voice their opinion and recommendations.|
|BLUE MERLE COLOR: CARDIGAN YES, PEMBROKE NO... While the Cardigan Welsh Corgi and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi appear similar, they are in fact two distinct breeds that developed separately centuries ago in geographically distinct areas of Wales. They are part of the cultural heritage of Wales and each breed deserves to be preserved and protected like any cultural treasure. |
One of the many breed characteristics that distinguish Cardigans from Pembrokes is color. Cardigans come in more colors including blue merle and brindle which have never occurred in purebred Pembrokes. Since canine geneticists have proven that both of these traits are dominant, it is virtually impossible for either color to suddenly appear in a litter of Pembrokes. Blue merle or brindle Pembrokes are a result of crossbreeding which is not condoned by the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America or their members. These puppies are not purebred, are not eligible to be registered in the AKC Stud Book and cannot compete in AKC Conformation or Herding events.
|REPORT OF THE AD HOC TASK FORCE ON LITTLE-EE RED At the 2014 National Specialty, the BOB was a red bitch who was known to be little-ee red. Much discussion ensued and the Board was asked for an ad hoc task force to study the question of little-ee red dogs. A Task Force was appointed with an open-ended mandate to investigate the current state of knowledge about little-ee red and to report back to the Board with recommendations. A final report has been submitted thus closing the Task Force, mission completed. |
The Task Force Report is available here.

The CWCCA is the parent club for the Cardigan Welsh Corgi breed and is a member of
the American Kennel Club. As our official homepage, we hope this site is able to provide
you with useful information about the breed.
The Cardigan Welsh Corgi ("the Corgi WITH a tail") is one of the oldest known breeds.
They are believed to have been in existence in Wales for over 3,000 years, and were
first imported to the United States in 1931. Cardigans make a delightful companion
and working farm, show, or performance dog. They are NOT a breed for everyone, however,
and we strongly suggest educating yourself fully about the breed before making a decision
to add a Cardigan to your family.
