International Corgi Day (ICD) is celebrated every year on June 4. It was created to celebrate corgis and corgi-mixes around the world. International Corgi Day was founded by the four Crew Leaders of the Omaha Corgi Crew in the fall of 2019 and was first celebrated on June 4, 2020. On this day you can get involved in a fundraising event and post about corgis and ICD on social media.
International Corgi Day will be celebrated on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.
This breed of dogs originated in Wales, therefore it is called Welsh Corgi.
Two separate Corgi breeds are recognized, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi.
These dogs have historically been used as herding dogs for cattle.
Queen Elizabeth II has had these short-legged dogs since her childhood.
The Pembroke Welsh corgis are descended from dogs brought to Wales by Flemish weavers about AD 1100.
