I don’t know how many people actually have this dog breed living in their homes as part of a family member, but again, I was asked to make a tutorial on one strange looking dog. They are short but long, and stubby but big. Today, I will be showing you "how to draw a corgi", step by step. This dog breed is also known as a Pembroke Welsh corgi, and one of the things that they are known for is how oddly shaped their bodies are. You see, corgis have long bodies that are low to the ground naturally. They have short stubby legs and it is this trait that makes the corgi look longer than most dog breeds. Like a lot of dogs, this breed has a double layered coat that is thick, short, and very weather resistant. You can find a corgi in two different coat options, and they are fluffy or long haired. Although the most common color you will find these dogs in is red or fawn, they are also found in black, sable, and tan. Some have chests that are white along with their underside, and then there are also some that are born strictly one color. By looking at a corgi you may not realize that these dogs are actually quite smart. They are also considered to be remarkably loyal, and they also like bringing pleasure to their owners and or family. Despite their short, stocky stature, they grow to be anywhere between twenty four to thirty pounds and that is a rounded number for both male and female. As you know most female species of dog are almost always smaller than males. Their life expectancy is said to be anywhere from eleven to fifteen years, but it’s not uncommon to have them reach the age of eighteen. As far as heritage goes, it is believed that the corgi breed is a relative to four other breeds; the Keeshond, Pomeranian, Schipperkes, and Swedish Vallhund. They fall in the herding category group which is the same as a German shepherd, Border collie, and even Rottweiler. Anyways, you should have a blast with drawing a corgi especially if you own one of these dogs. I guess that is about it, have fun and stay tuned in for more to come.
