A corgi (plural: corgwn) was a medium-sized dog with short legs and fox-like features that originated in Wales.[1]

In September 1991, one of Queen Elizabeth II's corgwn was transformed into a hamster by an unknown witch or wizard, prompting the Improper Use of Magic Office to investigate and interview several subjects.[2] Muggle authorities concluded that the corgi had been stolen and replaced with a hamster as a "cruel" prank.[2] They launched a "full scale" search in an unsuccessful attempt to locate the dog.[2] The incident was reported in the 6 September 1991 issue of the Daily Prophet.[2]
