Corgi Colors

The AKC recognizes these Acceptable Colors for purebred Pembroke Welsh Corgis:
1: Red
2: Sable
3: Fawn
4: Black & Tan (Tri-Colored)
The AKC Breed Standard for Pembroke Welsh Corgis states: "The outer coat is to be of self colors in red, sable, fawn, or black and tan with or without white markings. White is acceptable on legs, chest, neck (either in part or as a collar), muzzle, underparts and as a narrow blaze on head."

The AKC describes these Unacceptable Colors as Faults in Pembroke Welsh Corgis:
1: Whitlies
2: Blueies - Article about Blue Dog Skin Problems and Hair Loss
3: Mismarks
4: Blackies
The AKC Breed Standard describes those dogs as: "Whitlies - Body color white, with red or dark markings. Bluies - Colored portions of the coat have a distinct bluish or smoky cast. Mismarks - Self colors with any area of white on the back between withers and tail, on sides between elbows and back of hindquarters, or on ears. Blackies - Black with white markings and no tan present."

Mix Breeds that are NOT purebred Pembroke Welsh Corgis:
1: Merle
2: Blue Merle
3: Cowboy Corgis
4: American Corgis
The color merle and blue merle are not possible in a purebred Pembroke Welsh Corgi. That is why the AKC Breed Standard for Pembroke Welsh Corgis does not mention merle or blue merle as an acceptable color, or even as a faulty color. The color merle actually happens in other breeds of dogs like the Australian Shepherd and Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Don't be fooled by people who claim to have Merle or Blue Merle Pembrokes, because no such thing exists! The phrase Cowboy Corgis is used by people who mix Australian Shepherds with Pembrokes to get the color Merle in their mix-breed dogs. The phrase American Corgis is used by people who mix Cardigans with Pembrokes to get the color merle in their mix-breed dogs. The phrase blue merle Pembroke is used by people who mix a faulty blue Pembroke with a merle Australian Shepherd or Cardigan in their mix-breeds. A better description of such dogs would be "designer dogs", which is a polite way to say mutt. Mutts can be pretty dogs, but they are not Pembroke Welsh Corgis or any other purebred dog. Any person that wants a purebred dog that is the color merle can only get such a dog from an AKC Cardigan Welsh Corgi breeder.

CKC Dog Registry:
The CKC is simply a registry for people who can't get AKC Purebred Papers. The CKC will give papers to any person who sends them a photo of their dog. If the CKC thinks the photo might be of a purebred dog, the person gets CKC purebred papers. If the CKC doesn't think the photo is of a purebred dog, the person gets CKC non-purebred papers. As you can see, the CKC is not a true registry of purebred dogs. However, even the CKC does not recognize merles as being Pembrokes and also does not recognize Cowboy Corgis and American Corgis, because none of those are purebred dogs. Such dogs only get CKC Non-purebred papers, which is another polite way to say mutt.
