There are Cardigan Welsh Corgis with longer hair and a tail, and Pembroke Welch Corgis with shorter hair like the photos of Bailey. There are pictures or Cardigans on lots of Corgi web sites.
They do shed. But the small size and relatively short coat reduces the volume compared to medium or full size dog with a full coat. I don't find it much of a problem. It is not much work to brush such a small dog outside compared to a big dog. It takes a few seconds.

That's easy, show her pictures of Bailey in his trike and then a live one. Then a couple of my videos. Problem over.
Corgis are small dogs that think they are big dogs. He wrestles with big dogs all the time he loves it. They are bred to herd cattle. They are the smallest of the herding breeds. A herding dog is bred to respond to human voice comands. Just be consistent and they are very easy to train. Bailey has trained himself to do things I repeat. Like bark when I yell "passing". He almost house trained himself.
"Bailey Cam" shows him barking when I yell passing. http://www.youtube.com/my_videos
Show your girlfriend "Party at Bailey's house".
Here are some of the threads with Bailey photos. http://www.bikeforums.net/search.php?searchid=4421155
If your girlfriend does not want a Cogri after this, something is wrong with her!
