This means that corgis could soon be an endangered breed.

Yes, you read that correctly. ENDANGERED.

The Queen used to breed corgis and has owned over 30 in her life, but stopped breeding them in 2009 as she "didn't want them to suffer the pain of being orphaned if they outlived her."

Corgis used to have a reputation for being "snappy" but the Queen has defended them in the past, saying: "They're very easy to keep clean and tidy. They don't mind being parked with other people."

"We're going to have to look at either bringing in frozen semen from abroad or bringing dogs in from say places like America and the Continent."
