More information about this dog
Marcel is male red and white Pembroke Welsh Corgi. He is purebred and Kennel Club registered. A stunning animal actor. His longer hair comes from a recessive gene (only 5% of corgis are born “fluffy” like him).
He is a big boy; strongly built, with a long body on short legs. This is a natural corgi shape, he just looks extra big because of all the hair but he is perfectly healthy, with a waist and no weight to lose, he weighs 16.8kg.
Marcel is very empathetic and very gentle with little humans and the elderly. In all, he is extremely friendly with everyone he meets. He is the sweetest corgi. He is friendly, always happy to meet new people and animals of all ages, outgoing, confident, adaptable. Travelling is not a problem for this little corgi and he is used to travelling in the UK and abroad by car, ferry and public transport.
Pet Acting/Modelling Ability
This handsome chap has been trained in obedience and agility and is confident with commands as well as tricks. He is a food driven and extremely clever dog; always keen to learn new tricks and does so quickly. He can be taught a new behaviour on request with notice. Marcel lives with a keen photographer and a chef, so he enjoys posing for a camera & filming (in a studio environment, including with flashlights, as well as outdoors, in busy environments, near food & wearing props, on his own or with other dogs). This handsome Corgi will work to voice and hand signals and at a distance with no issues.
