"I'm an American Soldier. I will always do my duty, no matter what the price. I've counted up the cost, I know the sacrifice. I don't want to die for you, but if dyin's asked of me, I'll bear that cross with honor, 'cause freedom don't come free. I'm an American soldier. Beside my brothers and my sisters I will proudly take a stand. When liberty's in jeopardy I will always do what's right. I'M OUT HERE ON THE FRONT LINE.
SLEEP IN PEACE TONIGHT.

Welcome to the homepage of Castell Pembroke Welsh Corgis. We're delighted you found us and thank you for visiting! It's our intention to provide a fun, informative, educational site so we hope you enjoy your stay and come back as we update often!

Located in Southwest Idaho, we are small exhibitors of top quality Corgis. It's our goal to show the best healthy, sound, quality corgis we can that will, later, give many years of enjoyment to the homes they find their way into. As testimony of that, we're proud to have bred and owner handled 4 consecutive dogs in 3 consecutive generations that have gone to top rankings.

Our home is nestled atop a hill, on eight peaceful acres where the corgis have two and a half securely fenced acres to run and play. Visitors are ALWAYS welcome!

We acquired Bunny, a finished champion, at six years old. Shasta arrived at 16 months old needing confidence and ring experience. He finished his championship by going Winners Dog at the l986 Golden Gate Specialty under Breeder Judge Wyn Lepper of Olantigh fame.

Bunny and Shasta were our Foundation Stock. Both have since gone to the "Bridge" but left us a legacy of CH's and working titled dogs. Some of that legacy include:

With the recent discovery of the mutated gene responsible for Degenerative Myelopathy (see information links listed below)a DNA test is being offered through the Orthopedic Foundation of Animals (OFA)licensed by the University of Missouri. (This is the SAME gene that causes ALS, Lou Gehrigs Disease,in people) The test will provide one of three results for breeders testing their dogs;

1) CLEAR - dog does NOT HAVE the mutated gene, therefore, cannot pass it on to its get or get the disease.
2) CARRIER - dog has one copy of the mutated gene and can pass it on but NOT get the disease.
3) "AT RISK" - dog has two copies of the gene and stands a risk of actually developing the disease as well as passing it on to get. An "At Risk" test result, however, does not guarantee the dog WILL develop the disease. Research is continuing, hoping to discover what "triggers" the gene to cause the disease to develop.

I urge ANYONE searching for a new puppy to educate themselves on this disease by visiting the links below AND REQUEST TEST RESULTS FROM THE BREEDERS YOU ARE CONTACTING!! (In my educated opinion, there is NO excuse to justify NOT testing breeding stock for this gene!)

It is our promise, from this day forward, to NEVER, EVER again, knowingly, produce a dog with both genes at risk to develop this horrid disease. DM robs our corgis of many years of quality life, changes the lifestyle of the owner and, eventually, breaks our hearts when our beloved's can no longer go on. We have many links of information for DM on our main home page. If you have a dog you suspect is affected with DM ( or is mobility challenged), there is a wonderful chat list for corgi owners of both breeds (Pembroke and Cardigan) at http://www.yahoogroups.com called Wheelcorgis as that is what our guys become...corgis in a wheelchair! We also urge you to contact the University of Missouri and make a tissue contribution when your beloved gives up the fight.

WE MAKE THIS PUBLIC GUARANTEE THAT NO PUPPY PRODUCED AT CASTELL WILL EVER AGAIN, KNOWINGLY, CARRY BOTH GENES!

Please meet DM CLEAR KALLISTA A WISH AND A DREAM!


My puppy family can tell you I am not usually a big advocate of supplements/additives or special diets. However, in recent years, I and many others have noticed the increase of immune mediated problems in dogs as well as many varieties of cancer, skin disorders and allergies.. I have given considerable thought before recommending NuVet Labs. Please visit this link to learn all about a wonderful immune system support that I feel will be beneficial in the healthy life of your dog! If you choose to try this wonderful product, please use code 60039 when ordering.


Do you have a loved pet you'd like to remember with a life-like portrait? I have found an artist that will knock your socks off! Take a look at the picture I sent her and portrait she sent back. She has captured the total essence of Texas in his portrait.
