Thank you for the replies I've already had on other threads. I thought it might be time to introduce myself and our puppies.
My name is Tony and we (my wife and I) have a couple of 12 week old, brindle and white, sibling cardigan welsh corgi's here in Adelaide.
We chose this breed of dog after doing some thorough research. We went to a local dog park and watched all the various breeds of dogs which came and went, discussing which types of dogs were of interest to us. It was there that we saw a beatiful three year old brindle and white cardigan welsh corgi for the first time. We struck up a conversation with his owner about the dog and his breed. Until then, we had only known the prombroke welsh corgi's (because of their popularity and the Queen's love for pembrokes). We researched all the small and medium sized dogs (as we live in the burbs) for cuteness, health issues, intelligence and easiness to train. Corgi's ticked all the boxes. We then researched about Corgi's history and how they're a herding dog, therefore meaning they'll need lots of exercise.
We really liked the brindle and white, partially because of those tiger-style stripes they get on their coats as they get older, so it had to be cardigans. We also felt sorry for the cardigans because the pembrokes are more popular - mainly because they don't have tails (apologies to pembroke lovers when I write that we also love to see tails wagging with doggy joy). We contacted breeders around the whole country looking for brindle and white cardigan welsh corgis. We found blue merle, brindle point, and black and white litters. Then, finally, we found a litter of 8 puppies interstate with three brindle and white puppies, two of which were boys and one of which was a girl. We jumped on them and paid as quickly as we could (AU$750 each), getting them flown over from Victoria at 8.5 weeks of age.
We named them Fos (boy) and Ebo (girl), after Fos Williams and Russel Ebert who are two Port Adelaide Football Club legends (I'm an incredibly passionate Port Adelaide fan).
If you'd like to see more photos of Fos and Ebo, please visit and "Like" their Facebook page which you'll find in my signature below. I update their Facebook page regularly with more photos as well as Youtube videos (from their Youtube page - yes, I'm obsessive).
Happy to be joining your community and I can't recommend Cardigan Welsh Corgi's enough.
