Welsh Cardigans

We specialize in breeding quality Black & White and Blue Merle Cardigan Corgis since 1999 . Have taken a fancy to Black & Whites and Blue Merles with tan points . We offer puppies for sale to qualified homes and generally have three litters per year. Our older Cardigan friends will sometimes be placed in special homes to enjoy their retirement .

Thanks to the enforcement of zoning restrictions from the Town of Glenville , we are no longer allowed to have chickens . Still enjoy vegetable gardening . Added raising Californian Rabbits too . Wife's two retired Greyhounds have passed away , but we still have YoYo ( a 3 legged cat ) .

We welcome inquiries about Cardigans and am generally available by email , bigearsk@gmail.com . Am member of Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America . Breeder in good standing with AKC . Have AKC , Canadian champions & Grand Champions . Recently AKC notified us that based on our history , number of champions , showmanship , & number of litters successfully whelped , Big Ears Kennel can apply for Breeder of Merit status !

People have found my old website on angelfire . It has not been updated in decades & states " no puppies " . Follow our blog , bigearskennel.blogspot.com , for announcements on new arrivals .

Over the years two things that bother me are ; those that ask only price & the term corgi . There are so many questions a interested party may ask about Cardigans , price should not be the first & only question ! One fellow's entire inquiry was " How much , might be interested in a female " ? My reply based on this limited inquiry was " $82,000 " . He did not appreciate my humor . Now corgi is my second bafflement . Few people realize there are two corgi breeds . I've answered " corgi " inquiries in great detail , in a series of emails , only to learn they were only interested in Pembrokes . So if you inquire about " corgis " , I will try to define which breed . If your only question is price , I may not reply !

Wish people will understand Mother Nature limits color & gender of pups available . We try to match the best pup to a good home . That can only be done by visiting & bonding . Shipping is not an option , too many horror stories . Many online sites promise Blue Merles & shipping . Before you send money to these sites , check them out . Many are fronts for puppy mills & scams . Some will never see their money or puppy . One site had over 144 complaints !

A common request we get for this uncommon breed is " A Blue Merle female " . Cardigans are not a common breed . There are only a few breeders east of the Mississippi . Only a few of these breed for Blue Merles . To get a quality Blue Merle , one must breed to a Black & White for crisp color & avoid genetic faults attached to recessive genes . Breeding for Blue Merles a litter may produce one or two Blue Merles . One might be a female . For every Blue Merle pup we get 10 inquiries . So don't be hurt if Mother Nature is cruel !

22 vulnerable dog breeds that could disappear

Cardigan Welsh Corgi
This tiny body needs a lot of exercise and stimulation. Sadly, new registrations have fluctuated between only 56 to 108 in recent years

That's my Stella ! As Cardigan breeders age & stop breeding , who will be the stewards of this breed ? Saw this startling clip on FB . With only a handful of active reliable breeders , in ten years we could be left with " Designer " mutts & labs .

I Hate Computers !

Just when I get it figured out , the server changes the system ! Things were smooth . Server would allow me to check on blog , ad new postings , ad new pictures , notify my email when messages would appear on my blog , & allow access . That was the Golden Era ! Now every month the server takes away a function & replaces it months later , only to steal another ! This month my email is suddenly granted message notification . . . but if I use it , I lose access to blog ? The I have to shut down the computer & reboot . I hate computers ! So if I don't reply to your messages on our blog  , this is why !

Several people have inquired about contacting fellow Big Ears Kennel pup homes . With sensitive environment about personal security/ computer privacy , I will not give out detailed info . However one could leave a message on my blog for fellow Cardigan homes to contact them . Chances are they also follow our blog .
