In 1933, King George VI gave her daughter, Queen Elizabeth II her first Pembroke Welsh Corgis and she loved them ever since. This particular one was named Rozavel Golden Eagle. She played with the dog together with her sister Margaret and today she has a pack of the breed around the palace.
This is a brilliant dog that is very devoted to its owner. It takes care of the family very seriously since it is an excellent watchdog. The dog is very lovable and playful and wants always to accompany the family wherever they go and wants to be a part of the action. They cooperate well with children especially if they grow together and socialize. They like to bark and get very excited at times, are instantly wary of strangers and are prone to defending their territory.
It may be a small-bodied dog, but the Pembroke Welsh Corgis has a lot of dog in it. In the early times, they were used to hunt rodents and herd cattle in Pembrokeshire, Wales and have taken their job seriously ever since. By nipping the heels of cattle, they kept the cattle in line, and their small bodies kept them safe from kicks.
Today, they are still used as farm dogs but are also lovely family pets trustworthy around the children and are reliable watchdogs. Even though they have their own minds, they still desire to please those they love. They are introspective, attention-seeking and can also be clownish at times.
