Stop What You're Doing and Look at These Corgi Mixes
Corgis aren’t just lapdogs. Anyone who knows a Corgi knows that they’re incredibly smart, athletic and charming. And when mixed with virtually any other breed, they’re even more robust — if not a little silly-looking.
These are the most ridiculous, fun and charming Corgi mixes.
Siborgi: Siberian Husky and Corgi Mix
What the Husky Brings
The Siberian Husky is a tenacious, intelligent and athletic animal. Smaller than its sled-pulling brethren (the Alaskan Malamute), the Siberian husky is a popular pet for those who can keep up with them.
Siberian huskies are known to be escape artists, so it’s likely that a Siborgi will double down on the mischief.
Pitorgi: Pitbull and Corgi Mix
What the Pit Bull Brings
Pit bulls are known for being highly athletic dogs, but many worry about the breed’s innate strength. A poorly trained pit bull can potentially be dangerous. When mixed with a corgi, you get a smaller, more compact dog with just the right amount of energy.
Pit bulls are actually not an official breed but rather a breed type known for their strength.
Lorgi: Lab and Corgi Mix
What the Labrador Brings
Labradors are known for being fantastic family pets. They are even-tempered and willing to please. Unfortunately, many purebred Labradors have health-related issues.
Crossing a Labrador retriever with another breed (such as a corgi) is a great way to increase health and vigor.
Dalmatian and Corgi Mix
What the Dalmatian Brings
Fun-loving, energetic and friendly, a Dalmatian is an entire basket of excitement. Every time a "101 Dalmatians" movie is released, people flock to purchase a Dalmatian puppy.
But there’s a reason these dogs used to be "firehouse" dogs. Dalmatians are extraordinarily high-energy and demanding. Be aware that your corgi mix isn’t likely to ever stop.
Grorgi: Greyhound and Corgi Mix
What the Greyhound Brings
Energy. Greyhounds are known for their fast bursts of energy, so expect a lot of zoomies with this mix. But you’d be surprised how much of a lapdog they will otherwise be.
Greyhounds are a lot like cheetahs. They expend all their energy at once and spend the rest of their time on the couch.
So expect one long walk a day and then a rest.
Chorgi: Chihuahua and Corgi Mix
What the Chihuahua Brings
Size. Chihuahuas and corgis actually share a lot of breed-specific traits. They can be stubborn, loving and energetic. But Chihuahuas also tend to be a bit nervous, whereas corgis are more confident.
When bred together, the corgi gets much smaller and the Chihuahua gets a little less prone to snap.
Golden Corgi: Golden Retriever and Corgi Mix
What the Golden Retriever Brings
Golden retrievers are known as the perfect family dog. They are even-tempered, eager to please and loving. They will bond with anyone in their pack, and they also bond very closely with other dogs.
Consequently, adding "golden retriever" to just about any other dog will make it a more friendly, well-tempered animal.
Auggie: Aussie and Corgi Mix
What the Aussie Brings
An Australian shepherd is as much a companion as it is an antagonist. Aussies are known for being extraordinarily intelligent and challenging.
They have been bred to herd animals and will occasionally herd people if there are no animals available. They are also known as master escape artists.
A mix between an Aussie and a corgi is likely to be adorable and diabolical.
Dorgi: Doberman and Corgi Mix
What the Doberman Brings
An intensely loyal guardian dog, Dobermans are often used for personal protection. They are known not only for their intelligence but also their fearlessness in the face of danger.
Dobermans tend to be thin and athletic, which can help a little as Corgi dogs tend to pack on the pounds (especially as they get older).
Duck Toller and Corgi Mix
What the Duck Toller Brings
Just look at this elegant dog. As you can see, the duck toller mix brings with it luxurious, beautiful fur.
The Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever was initially a hunting dog. It looks very similar to a small golden retriever.
Like a golden retriever, duck tollers are obedient, athletic and energetic.
Blue Corgi: Blue Heeler and Corgi Mix
What the Blue Heeler Brings
Australian cattle dogs, also known as blue heelers, are a unique mix of dingos, Dalmatians, and a now extinct breed of dog known as the Smithfield dog. Consequently, they have a very distinct appearance.
In terms of temperament, they are similar to Australian shepherds: energetic, excitable and laser-focused. But they are a little smaller and very independent.
Pomorgi: Pomeranian and Corgi Mix
What the Pomeranian Brings
First, Pomeranian puppies look like tiny, fluffy potatoes. You can’t deny that. But Pomeranians are actually excellent companion animals. Many Pomeranian owners believe that they are "big dogs in small dog suits," because they are feisty and family-friendly.
While Chihuahuas have a reputation for latching on to a single owner (sometimes to the death), Pomeranians have a lot of love to give. The only downside is that Pomeranians are prone to barking. A lot.
Malorgi: Belgian Malinois and Corgi
What the Belgian Malinois Brings
Frequently police dogs, the Belgian Malinois is known for being strong, robust and fiercely protective. Belgian Malinois dogs are now replacing German shepherds in many situations, as they are hardy and loyal.
A Belgian Malinois can be single-minded, as can a corgi, so prepare for some interesting standoffs.
Porgi: Pug and Corgi Mix
What the Pug Brings
Pugs are the quintessential couch potato and companion animal. In this mix, the corgi is really bringing something to the pug — superior health.
Some modern pugs have been bred to the point of being a little unhealthy, due to the squished nose and barrel chest.
A pug and corgi mix brings the Pug breed back toward its noble and natural roots, which in turn makes an animal that is both stronger and easier to cuddle.
Borgi: Border Collie and Corgi
What the Border Collie Brings
What doesn’t a border collie bring? Border collies are frenetic dogs that are most suitable to living on farms — and very ill-suited to apartment life.
Bred for work, most border collies will assign themselves a job if they aren’t given one, even if that job is herding the cats. But a corgi is also a working-breed dog, so adding border collie just doubles down on its tenacity.
Sheporgi: German Shepherd and Corgi Mix
What the German Shepherd Brings
Who doesn’t love a great German shepherd? German shepherds are known for being obedient and easy to train, which is why they are so frequently military and police dogs. They are calm and unfazed by disaster, which makes them a great corgi mix.
A German shepherd and corgi mix is less likely to have that corgi-typical stubbornness.
Other Dog Breeds to Cross With a Corgi
You can cross a surprising mix of dog breeds with corgis. To be safe, the smaller dog should always be the male.
If you’re thinking about looking for a corgi cross, why not take a look at some of the strongest dog breeds in the world?
