New Puppy Loves ‘Walking’ Her Older Corgi Brother and It’s Too Cute

Going for walks is a favorite pastime for almost all dogs, and Hammy and his new sister Fiona are no exception. But there's a twist; Fiona is the one who likes to 'walk' her big brother by holding onto the leash! The Corgis' dad Chris shared a video at the end of June of the two dogs going for a walk, and it's the cutest thing you'll see today.

Little Fiona loves holding on to the leash as Hammy strolls around. While Hammy is tolerant of Fiona's antics, I don't think he necessarily enjoys her being in charge of the leash. And let's face it, it looks more like she's just following Hammy around than actually walking him!

This is absolutely adorable! Hammy and Fiona are so cute together, and Hammy's proved that he's a very good (and patient!) big brother. That being said, he's still a big brother and has no problem getting in trouble and then blaming it on Fiona! Fans of the two had a lot to say about the cute video. @Mary Doucette got almost 500 likes when she pointed out, "The way Hammy speeds up and she's trying to pull him back though LOL!" and @Mizz Wycked added, "Fiona’s having a hard time keeping up with Hammy with her teeny, tiny legs!"

Do Corgis Make Good Family Pets?

After watching this, you might be thinking it would be fun to have a couple of cute Corgis running around your house...I know I do! But do Corgis really make good pets? As with most animals, it depends on who you ask.

When it comes to pets, we all have different criteria that we're looking for. Some of us want active dogs while others want couch potatoes they can snuggle up with. Some people don't mind dogs shedding while others might tick a certain breed off of our wish list because of it. All dogs have pros and cons about their breed which is why it's so important to do your research before bringing one home.

Corgis are very intelligent dogs, which makes training relatively easy. They like to please their owners and never turn down a treat. They have short coats that are easy to care for, however they have a double coat and do tend to shed a lot...plan to vacuum daily. They are full of energy and like to stay busy. They can get destructive or bark excessively when they get bored, so if you aren't willing to provide daily exercise to these high-energy dogs, you might want to skip bringing one home.

Unlike many dog breeds, they're good with cats and other animals, as well as children of all ages. While they are good with children, they are herding dogs, so they will try to herd the kids which might include nipping at their heels. The behavior can be corrected through training, but it's something to be aware of, especially if you have little ones.

For me, there's one thing that took Corgis off my list when we were considering adopting a dog and that's barking. They love to bark (they're bossy because they're herders!) and it's a natural trait of theirs. If you aren't willing to put up with barking and don't have the time to train them when it's okay and not okay to bark, a Corgi might not be the right pet for you. Don't give up though! There's a dog breed out there that's just right for you, you just have to find it!
