Pembroke Welsh Corgi Overview:

There are actually two Corgi breeds commonly referred to when one is talking about Corgis. They include the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. One of the most highly sought-after Corgi breeds is the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, and this is the most likely Corgi that will be the parent breed of one of our below Corgi mix dogs.

But what should you know about the Pembroke Welsh Corgi?

Before being known as Queen Elizabeth’s most coveted canine treasure, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi was a well-known herding dog hailing from Pembrokeshire, Wales. In Welsh, the word Korgi means “dwarf dog”, and this name suits this canine perfectly.

Corgi dogs are specifically bred to be the size they are. Their small stature allows them to be low to the ground, which makes them ideal for herding cattle. Corgis are famous for nipping at cattle’s heels to help round them up, though they are small enough to avoid injury from any rogue kicks from cattle hooves.

Pembroke Welsh Corgi dogs are considered achondroplastic, which means they are true dwarf breeds. In other words, the dwarfism in their genetics will likely not lead to genetic health issues. However, there are some genetic health issues the breed could be prone to, as we discussed above.

When it comes to corgi mix dogs, the dwarfism gene could lead to some unique health issues or skeletal problems within their hybrid offspring that you should consider.

What You Should Know About The Crossbreed Controversy

2 a corgi and a terrier
Corgi mix dogs are cute and popular, but they’re also controversial.

Crossbreed dogs are incredibly popular these days, and though we consider many of the crossbreed dogs of today to be “new”, the practice of crossbreeding is centuries old. In fact, many believe crossbreeding has been going on since the beginning of the canine/human relationship.

In the beginning, crossbreeding was used as a way to combine specific traits of two breeds. With careful breeding and crossbreeding, eventually, breeders were able to create a new type of breed, most often for working purposes.

It is likely that most dogs we are familiar with today are the result of careful crossbreeding over generations, though it takes years of breeding and perfecting before a dog can be considered a purebred dog.

And this is where a bit of the debate comes into play.

Once upon a time, crossbreed dogs were looked upon as mutts, and these dogs were generally not bought and sold by reputable breeders for a high price. These days, crossbreed dogs are often bred and sold as newer generation hybrid puppies at a premium price, sometimes costing buyers more than their purebred counterparts.

Though there are benefits of investing in a hybrid dog, like the idea behind hybrid vigor, for example, there are also some downsides potential owners should consider.

First, second, and third generation crossbreed dogs are considered more unpredictable when it comes to their temperament, health, and appearance.

On the flip side, hybrid dogs like a corgi mix could have the benefit of hybrid vigor. Hybrid vigor is the idea that hybrid dogs and mutts are potentially healthier than their purebred counterparts thanks to their widened gene pool.

This is because purebred dogs have been overbred for generations in an effort to maintain their breed standard. Unfortunately, this has led to purebred dogs being more susceptible to suffering from genetic health issues.

Crossbreed dogs may have a less likely chance of inheriting some of the same genetic health issues as their purebred parents, though they might also have a longer list of health issues to contend with.

Another bit of the crossbreed controversy that you should keep in the back of your mind revolves around the breeding practices of these dogs.

As crossbreed dogs like corgi mix-breeds become more and more popular, breeding practices are more likely to become less reputable.

It’s very important when looking for any dog, whether it’s a crossbreed or a purebred, to go through reputable sources. This should include breeders with a history of breeding healthy dogs who understand the importance of healthy breeding practice, as well as responsible shelters or rescues you might consider if you are looking to adopt a dog.

So, are you considering investing in a Corgi mix dog? If so, keep reading. Here are 12 of our favorite corgi mix dogs we’re sure you’ll love.

Although it is true that there are pros and cons to crossbreed dogs, corgi mix dogs are irresistibly adorable. With that noted, not all corgi mix dogs are going to be right for every person or family.

Before you decide if a corgi mix is the right dog for you, it’s important to remember that crossbreed dogs could be more like one parent breed over the other as opposed to being a perfect mix between his two parent breeds.

1. The Corman Shepherd (The German Shepherd x Corgi Mix)

4 a Corman Shepherd
The Corman Shepherd is a clever herding dog.

Height: 12 to 15 Inches

Weight: 25 to 65 Pounds

Temperament: Affectionate, Intelligent, Friendly, Devoted, Energetic

Lifespan: 10 to 15 Years

Best Suited For: Active Families, Singles, Couples, Owners With A Flexible Schedule

The Corman Shepherd Overview:

The Corman Shepherd is a cross between the purebred German Shepherd and the purebred Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Both the German Shepherd and the Corgi are bred herding dogs, so it’s easy to predict that their corgi mix offspring is going to be a clever, energetic, and work-oriented hybrid.

This means that if you choose to invest in a German Shepherd x Corgi Mix dog, you should prepare for a dog that requires routine training socialization, exercise, and attention each and every day.

While these dogs can do well in families with children, they are best suited for more experienced dog owners who have an understanding of working breeds.

The Auggie Corgi Mix: Active Families, Experienced Dog Owners

The Auggie Corgi Mix is another cross between two incredibly intelligent and energetic working breeds. The Australian Shepherd in particular is considered a cowboy’s best friend. Originating in Australia but perfected in California, the Australian Shepherd is famous for his beautiful coat, unique eye coloring, and stamina for ranching.

In fact, Aussies are still some of the most sought-after ranch dogs in the United States. Mix this temperament with a Corgi and you have a hybrid dog that is intelligent, energetic and built for work.

The Auggie needs plenty of mental stimulation and exercise, and he will not be happy left to his own devices without plenty to do. This is also a dog that is best suited for homes with backyards where he can run and play freely.

3. The Corgidor (The Labrador Retriever x Corgi Mix)

6 a corgi lab mix
The Corgi Lab Mix is a wonderful family dog.

Height: 12 to 23 Inches

Weight: 40 to 55 Pounds

Temperament: Friendly, Family-Oriented

Lifespan: 10 to 13 Years

Best Suited For: Families, Active Families, Active Owners, First Time Dog Owners

The Corgidor Overivew:

If you’re looking for a family-friendly corgi mix dog, look no further than the Corgidor. A mix between the playful Labrador and the clever corgi, the Corgidor is the perfect crossbreed for active families, outgoing singles and couples, and active retirees.

Labrador Retrievers are considered the number one most popular dog in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club. This is likely thanks to their darling appearance, friendly temperament, and affectionate nature. They love their family and get along well with other pets including both dogs and cats.

This temperament could mix well with a Corgi’s, who is a bit more focused and work-oriented than their Labrador Retriever counterpart.

However, the Corgidor could be high-energy and prone to some mischievous behaviors if not properly raised, trained, and socialized. It’s also important to get this crossbreed from a reputable breeder or shelter.

4. The Corjack (The jack Russell Terrier x Corgi Mix)

7 a corgi jack russell terrier
The Corjack is a feisty, fun-loving Corgi mix.

Height: 10 to 13 Inches

Weight: 18 to 28 Pounds

Temperament: Energetic, Intelligent, Friendly, Devoted

Lifespan: 12 to 15 Years

Best Suited For: Active Owners, Families

The Corjack Overview:

The Jack Russell Terrier is one of the most popular dogs utilized in Hollywood thanks to his cute look and clever mind. Jack Russell Terriers are quick to learn, energetic, outgoing, and family-oriented.

Like the Corgi, Jack Russell Terrier dogs are also more compact than most and combined with a Corgi, you will have a Corgi mix dog that is intelligent, energetic, outgoing, and full of life.

This enthusiasm could be overwhelming for more relaxed dog owners, but for active dog owners, this corgi mix is a breath of fresh air. He will do well in homes with active families and will enjoy having children or other dogs as playmates.

The Corjack, like all dogs, is also going to require routine exercise and mental stimulation to help keep him from developing behavioral issues due to boredom.

5. The Corgi Inu (The Shiba Inu x Corgi Mix)

8 A Corgi Inu
The Corgi Inu is a devoted companion best suited for more experienced dog owners.

Height: 9 to 15 Inches

Weight: 17 to 28 Pounds

Temperament: Friendly, Bold, Devoted, Protective

Lifespan: 12 to 15 Years

Best Suited For: Active Dog Owners, Flexible Dog Owners

The Corgi Inu Overview:

The Corgi Inu combines the delightful Pembroke Welsh Corgi with the devoted Shiba Inu. A natural hunter at heart, Shiba Inu dogs are spitz-type dogs that originated in Japan.

Though highly intelligent, Shiba Inu dogs can be particularly stubborn. This can make training somewhat complicated, which should be considered if you are investing in a Corgi Inu crossbreed.

Your Corgi Inu could be more like his Shiba Inu parent breed when it comes to temperament, so training should begin early and continue on throughout this corgi mix dog’s lifetime. Keep training short, fun, and gamelike, and use high-value training treats to help keep your Corgi Inu dog’s attention.

Avoid negative reinforcement tactics when training your Corgi Inu, as this could lead to your Corgi mix dog shutting down. Instead, use positive reinforcement training techniques including treats, praise, and patience.

6. The Horgski (Siberian Husky x Corgi Mix)

9 the Corgi husky mix
The Corgi Husky mix is energetic, outgoing, and fun.

Height: 13 to 15 Inches

Weight: 20 to 50 Pounds

Temperament: Intelligent, Energetic, Work-Oriented, Playful, Social

Lifespan: 12 to 15 Years

Best Suited For: Active Dog Owners, Active Families, Owners With Yards

The Horgski Overview:

Perhaps one of the most energetic Corgi mix dogs on our list, the Horgski is a cross between the purebred Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the purebred Siberian Husky.

Siberian Husky dogs are especially well-known for their high energy level, and this can certainly be passed on to their corgi mix offspring. For this reason, we don’t recommend the Horgski dog to more laid-back owners looking for a relaxed lap dog.

Instead, the Horgski will do best in homes with active owners and families with children or other pets that can help keep their Horgski dog busy.

We should also note that the Corgski is likely going to be a double-coated dog that is a heavy shedder. He will need consistent brushing and grooming to help keep his skin and coat healthy, and he will do best with those who don’t mind a bit of dog hair on their clothing and furniture.

Of course, this is probably not the best corgi mix dog for those who struggle with allergies.

7. The Corkie (The Yorkshire Terrier x Corgi Mix)

10 a Korky
The Corkie is a friendly and potentially hypoallergenic Corgi mix.

Height: 8 to 14 Inches

Weight: 10 to 20 Pounds

Temperament: Affectionate, Obedient, Playful, People-Oriented

Lifespan: 11 to 15 Years

Best Suited For: Owners With Flexible Schedules, Families With Older Children

The Corkie Overview:

If you’re concerned about allergies but are still interested in a Corgi mix dog, you might consider the Corkie. With a name as unique as he is, the Corkie certainly has his fair share of quirks.

Corkie dogs are a cross between the brainy Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the feisty, small-but-mighty Yorkshire Terrier.

Though considered the smallest of the terrier dogs, the Yorkshire Terrier packs a big punch when it comes to personality.

A bred ratting dog in Yorkshire, England, the Yorkshire Terrier has a high-prey drive and is famous for his silky coat that is described more like hair than fur.

Yorkshire Terrier dogs have hypoallergenic coats, and this could be passed on to their corgi mix offspring.

However, remember that this is not guaranteed, especially if you invest in a Corkie dog mix that is a first or second-generation crossbreed. If you are keen on getting a hypoallergenic Corkie crossbreed, we suggest going through a breeder that has a history of breeding this particular corgi mix, and a breeder who can offer you a Corkie puppy that is at least a third-generation hybrid.

You also have the option of adopting a Corkie mix that is over one year of age from a trusted rescue or shelter. Dogs who are over six months generally have their coat set, so you can rest assured that your Corkie mix dog is hypoallergenic, if that is what you need.

8. The Cohuahua (The Chihauhua x Corgi Mix)

11 a corgi Chihuahua mix
The Cohuahua is one of the smallest of the Corgi mix dogs.

Height: Seven to 12 Inches

Weight: 10 to 20 Pounds

Temperament: Devoted, Affectionate, Lively

Lifespan: 12 to 14 Years

Best Suited For: Owners With Flexible Schedules, Families With Older Children

The Cohauhua Overview:

The Cohauhau is the perfect corgi mix dog for you if you’re on the hunt for one of the smallest corgi mix dogs in the canine kingdom.

This hybrid crosses the purebred corgi with the purebred Chihuahua. Chihuahuas specifically are known to often weigh no more than six pounds, making them the world’s smallest purebred.

However, Chihuahuas have a huge temperament, and they are not suited for all owners. They can be bossy, temperamental, and even nippy with smaller children or other pets. These traits could be passed on to their Couahuah mix offspring.

For this reason, we recommend the Cohuahua corgi mix dog for families with older, more gentle children, or singles, retirees, or couples with flexible schedules who can devote time and attention to their crossbreed dog.

9. The Corgipom (The Pomeranian x Corgi Mix)

12 a corgi pom
The Corgi Pom is the darling cross between a Pomeranian and a Corgi.

Height: 10 to 22 Pounds

Weight: 8 to 12 Inches

Temperament: Affectionate, Intelligent, Stubborn, People-Oriented

Lifespan: 12 to 15 Years

Best Suited For: Families, Active Dog Owners, Owners With Flexible Schedules

The Corgipom Overview:

Pomeranians are incredibly popular, and who doesn’t love this teddy-bear look-alike? Mix this darling dog with the cute Corgi, and you have an irresistibly cute crossbreed you won’t be able to get enough of.

Small, sweet, and affectionate, the Pomeranian is the ideal lap dog for anyone in need of a loving and mild-mannered companion. If you cross a Corgi with a Pomeranian to make the Corgipom, you will likely be adding a bit of energy to that temperament.

In fact, the Corgipom is said to be a comedic little hybrid dog that is best suited for families with gentle children, active singles, seniors, retirees, and those with flexible schedules.

This is because the Corgipom becomes quite bonded with his family, and he may be prone to suffering from separation anxiety if left alone or to his own devices too often.

Corgi poms are also heavy shedding dogs, so those who struggle with allergies should keep this in mind. The pomeranian in particular is a double-coated spitz breed, meaning he is related to the heavy shedding Husky.

10. The Beagi (The Beagle x Corgi Mix)

13 a Beagi
The Beagi is a fun-loving and sweet little canine.

Height: 10 to 16 Inches

Weight: 10 to 20 Pounds

Temperament: Social, Friendly, Energetic, Family-Oriented

Lifespan: 12 to 15 Years

Best Suited For: Active Families, First Time Dog Owners

The Beagi Mix Overview:

Perhaps just as family-oriented as the Corgi x Labrador Retriever mix, the Beagi mix crosses the kid-friendly Beagle and the outgoing Corgi. This hybrid is a compact-sized little dog that has plenty of energy.

The Beagi is a friendly dog by nature, though he is part gun-dog, which means he could have a high prey drive. His herding instinct from his Corgi parent breed could mean that he may nip at smaller children or pet’s heels to herd them, but with proper training, this undesirable trait can be trained out of your hybrid. The Beagi is best suited for active families, singles, and couples.

11. The Golden Corgi (The Golden Retriever x Corgi Mix)

14 a Golden Corgi
The Golden Corgi is another family-friendly dog that can do well with children.

Height: 10 to 16 Inches

Weight: 30 to 75 Pounds

Temperament: Affectionate, Friendly, Spunky, Outgoing

Lifespan: 10 to 13 Years

Best Suited For: Families, First Time Dog Owners

The Golden Corgi Mix Overview

Similar to the Corgidor, the Golden Corgi is a family-oriented mix between the Golden Retriever and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Known as the Golden Corgi, this corgi mix breed is famous for its intelligence, friendly disposition, and golden coat!

Golden Corgi dogs are excellent dogs for active families, singles, and couples, and they can even be a great companion to first-time dog owners.

Of course, like all dogs, the Golden Corgi is going to need plenty of routine exercise and mental stimulation. He will also be best suited for homes that have a yard with a securely fenced-in yard where your Golden Corgi can run and play freely between routine exercise.

12. The Pigi (The Pitbull x Corgi Mix)

15 a Pigi
The Pigi is energetic, friendly, and playful.

Height: 17 to 19 Inches

Weight: 30 to 50 Pounds

Temperament: Affectionate, Devoted, Strong-Willed, Eager to Please

Lifespan: 12 to 15 years

Best Suited For: Experienced Dog Owners, Active Dog Owners

The Pigi Corgi mix Overview

Pronounced “piggie”, the Pigi crossbreed is a mix between the devoted and energetic Pitbull and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Pigi dogs are energetic, intelligent, family-friendly, and outgoing.

We should note here that the term “pitbull” is a name used to describe a group of different dog breeds and mixes under the pit bull category. The Pitbull in itself is not a particular breed.

This means that your Pigi corgi mix could be the offspring of several different pitbull types, and this should be considered if you’re considering a Pigi dog.

Regardless, most Pigi mix dogs are going to need routine daily exercise, mentals stimulation, and early socialization beginning during puppyhood.

Though most Pigi dogs should do well with families and children when properly trained and socialized, they may not do well with other dogs. It’s important to get your Pigi dog from a reputable source and to begin training your Pigi from the moment you bring him home.

Is A Corgi Mix Right For You? Experts Weigh In

16 a Corgi mix puppy
Corgi mix dogs may be cute, but they’re certainly not right for everyone.

Choosing the right Corgi mix dog can be difficult, especially when you consider how unique each mix above really is. Remember, not every Corgi mix is going to be right for every person or household, and it’s very important to do plenty of research before deciding which of the above Corgi mix dogs, if any, is right for you.

If you are considering a Corgi mix dog, it’s a good idea to go through reputable sources to obtain your puppy or rescue dog. As we mentioned briefly above, it’s best to go through responsible breeders with a history of breeding mixed breed dogs like the Corgi mix.

We also hope you keep in mind that just because you get a Corgi mix does not mean he will be the perfect combination of his parent breeds. If you are hoping for a corgi mix that looks a certain way or has a specific coat type, we recommend you go through breeders who offer Corgi mix dogs that are later-generation hybrids.

You also have the option of adopting a corgi mix. There are plenty of dogs available at reputable rescues or shelters, and it is possible to find the corgi mix of your dreams waiting for you.

There are loads of benefits that come from rescuing a Corgi mix. Not only is adopting a dog a fraction of the cost of going through a breeder, but you might also be able to find a dog that has been spayed or neutered, or even microchipped.

Whichever route you choose to take when it comes to finding your Corgi mix dog, remember to do plenty of research, take your time, and make sure you are the ideal owner for this unique crossbreed.

Best of luck and thanks for reading!
