WE'RE SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE
We are 22 + 23 years old and married December 2021! We've always had a soft spot for Corgis so we decided we would make it a full time hobby! I am a florist and own Holly Diana Floral in McRae, GA. Daniel graduated from Abraham Agricultural College with his bachelors degree in Crop + Soil Science. He is currently a research assistant and tests crop chemicals with Syngenta. We offer loving, happy puppies with a focus on health and personality. Our parents are health tested and loved on every day. Every one of our dogs stays in our home and goes to work with me. We would love for you to consider Williams Welsh Corgis for your next Pembroke Welsh Corgi!
We are located in McRae, Georgia. McRae is a super small town and about 3 - 3 1/2 hours south of Atlanta (depends on who is driving, haha). We live in a very rural area, where everyone knows "your Pa and them". However we believe that this is heaven on Earth and we wouldn't want it any other way!
THIS OR THAT
standard or fluffy
red, sable, or tri
male or female
HOW ABOUT YOU?
pembroke, cardigan, or american
What do we test for?
Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) - "Degenerative myelopathy is often abbreviated as DM and is a disease that affects the white matter of the spinal cord. With DM, this part of the spinal cord starts to break down, or degenerate, and results in weakness of the hind limbs that eventually progresses to paralysis."
Von Willebrand Disease (VWD) - "Von Willebrand's disease (vWD) is the most common inherited bleeding disorder of both humans and dogs. It is caused by a deficiency in the amount of a specific protein needed to help platelets (the blood cells used in clotting) stick together and form clots to seal broken blood vessels."
Exercised Induced Collapse (EIC) - Exercise-induced collapse is a genetic neuromuscular disorder characterized by muscle weakness, lack of coordination, and life-threatening collapse after intense exercise in otherwise apparently healthy dogs."
Please note: most Corgis do carry at least ONE copy of one of these listed, however, they are not AT RISK. Make sure with your breeder that the parents health testing is compatible with each other so your puppy won't carry two copies (two copies means AT RISK).
Whats the difference?
There are two types of coats in corgis: standard + fluffy. Most corgis are standard however some carry the fluffy gene "long hair" (FGF5). This is a recessive gene and your corgi would need two copies to be a "fully affected fluffy". Are there any health risk with being a "fluffy"? NOT AT ALL! We are so excited to be offering the "hard to find" coat length. However, if you are wanting to show your dog, the fluffy coat is not for you. Sadly the AKC does not recognize the fluffy coat in the show ring.
