After his recent death, the Queen Isabella II England will be remembered for many things, some more serious and institutional, others a little more superficial. Among the latter, no doubt, love for dogs. But not any race. She confessed her great love for corgi since they gave him a puppy for his eighteenth birthday. His sister chamomile flower She was also a big fan of dogs, although in her case she didn’t have an exclusive love for corgis. He also had other races such as Hot Dog. And it was from crossing one of these dogs with one of Elizabeth II’s corgis that a new breed could have appeared: dorgi.
In total, the Queen of England received over 30 dogs, from corgi to dorgi. They were all direct descendants of that first puppy, a female named Susan. But, logically, not only the monarch had dorgs. As is common with other breeds, they are recommended for adoption rather than purchase, and can be found at many dog shelters.
Near social, loyal and intelligent animals, it is very appropriate to live together with families with children, according to dog breed guides. Perhaps that is why Queen Elizabeth II liked them so much.
These are the dorgi that Elizabeth II “created”
There are two breeds of corgis Welsh Cardigan and Welsh Pembroke. The Dorgi of the British Royal Household originated from the crossing of the Welsh Pembroke of Elizabeth II and the Dachshund (dachshund) Princess Margaret, called pipkin. Some say it was the first dorgi in history. However, it is impossible to know for sure whether such crossbreeding has happened before.
They are very small, from 23 to 30 centimeters and weight from 7 to 13 kg. However, they have a long back inherited from the dachshund, so they may have some issues with it. For example, among them are common patellar luxation, hip dysplasia, and Legg-Calve-Perthes disease. The latter is a disease of the hip joint caused by the cessation of blood flow to the head of the femur, which leads to a stop in its growth. It can also occur in humans, especially in children between the ages of 4 and 8, although it may present before the age of 15. However, its effects continue to be seen in adulthood, when it can also increase the chance of developing osteoarthritis. All this can be extrapolated to dogs of breeds such as dorgis.
The last dogs of the Queen of England
Elizabeth II bred both corgis and dorgis all her life. However, in 2015, he decided to stop doing this, as he did not want to leave anything after his death. Among his last dogs were two dorgis, Volcano and Candy. Vulcan died in 2020 and Candy appeared with her in February 2022 in some photos taken for her platinum anniversary.
The Queen of England’s dogs end in Candy, but corgis and dorgis are still highly regarded in all families. both in England and the USA. And the fact is, whether you’re a monarchist or not, there’s no denying that these are adorable dogs.
