Before we go to the compare between Corgi and Shiba Inu, let's watch this video first!
They are just playing, and of course no hurt each other
So, Corgis and Shibas are both compact, have fuzzy bums, fox-like dogs who will shed everywhere, but the differences between Shiba Inu and Corgis make the breeds seem like night and day.
Let's head to the compare and join the conversation
First, we need to know some basic information about two dogs so we can make a comparison
P/s: They got talent about making people laugh
Back to the point!
The real basic information I have listed on the old post, you can check it back here!
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a small herding breed originating from Pembrokeshire, Wales, but like any other herding breed, they have loads of energy and are very agile even they have tiny, short legs.
They were bred to be low-riders to avoid injury from the kicking cows and sheep

But some are not...!
In addition, despite their small size, they are actually among the oldest herders and extremely good at that. But of course, we don’t simply love Corgis for being professional herders or being strong. We love them for their cuteness and especially that “sweet butts”.Corgi memes were never as viral as doge, there is still plenty of love for them on the internet.
For more than 70 years, Queen Elizabeth II has championed the breed. In 1934, the American Kennel Club recognized the breed as a member of the Herding Group

Shiba Inu, a native and ancient breed from Japan, is also called the Shiba Ken, Little Brushwood Dog, the Japanese Turf Dog, Little Turf Dog, or simply “Shibe.”
Some fun fact about Shiba Inu is: During WWII, the Shiba breed suffered tremendous losses and nearly went extinct. Fortunately, the breed was brought back using the three surviving bloodlines: San In Shiba, Mino Shiba, and the Shinshu Shiba Inu.
The Shiba Inu was recognized by the American Kennel Club as a breed in 1992 as part of the Miscellaneous class. Now, it is a full member of the Non-Sporting Group.
I cried every time I watch again this movie :-(
So, we are done with the basic information
