Check out the adorable Corgi mixes that'll surely melt your heart.
Written by Richard Jeng

A favorite among Instagrammers and the Queen of England, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi (often shortened to Welsh Corgi, or just Corgi) has seen its fair share of popularity recently. Don’t believe us…well, last we checked, #corgibutt was trending on Instagram.

As with any trend, it can be easy to get lost in the crowd. But that’s the great thing about dogs. Designer dogs and mixed breeds offer nearly unlimited options. You think you’ve found the cutest Corgi mix, until you see another.

When you combine their trademark short legs and features with other breeds, the results are often beyond adorable, fascinating and unique. That being said, we’ve found the best, or at least our favorite, Corgi mixes.

What’s a Corgi?

The Corgi, or Pembroke Welsh Corgi, is an adorable bundle of joy that has been taking the internet by storm. Just check out all these hilarious Corgi jokes and memes.

Iconic for their short legs, Corgis stand low to the ground at just 10 to 12 inches tall, while weighing 25 to 30 pounds. Though small, they can be deceivingly athletic and agile. Their short legs are built with lean muscle and they are hard-working dogs.

Thanks to their double coat, they do shed quite a bit and require moderate grooming from time to time (especially during shedding season). If you don’t want your house filled with corgi hair, make sure to brush them frequently.

Corgi Temperament

Welsh Corgis are highly intelligent dogs, falling just short of the top 10 most intelligent dog breeds list. In addition, they have bright personalities and a playful demeanor that few dog-lovers can resist. 

These dogs are been known to be very food-driven, which explains why they’re prone to obesity at an older age. But on the bright side, food-driven dogs are much easier to train with the right motivation (treats!).

Corgis are addicted to eating food. My dog is laser-focused when there is food around. If we didn’t stop her, she would never stop eating. I’m convinced our Corgi loves food more than us.

– Peter L. (Corgi Owner)

Part of the herding group, Corgis were bred to be excellent herders and often times, will try to herd humans too. This is especially true with small children. In fact, it’s not unusual to see these dogs nip at the heels of kids.

With those big triangular ears of theirs, they’re always alert and will have a tendency to bark at everything. They can’t help it! After all, Corgis were bred to bark at livestock with their deep and surprisingly loud “voices.”

But overall, these dogs can be loyal as any dog and will thrive in an active and loving family environment. It’s not hard to see why they’ve experienced continued popularity all over the world. They’re simply the best.

Best Corgi Mixes

We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite Corgi mixes. Of course, the list could go on and on, but here are just a few that are certain to warm your heart. If you think we missed a Corgi mix worthy of this list, leave us a comment in the section below.

1. Augie

Parents: Australian Shepherd x Corgi mix

The Augie mix is a combination of the Australian Shepherd and Corgi.
via Instagram: @eevee_the_augi

Or is it an Augi…or even an Auggie (everyone seems to spell it differently). But no matter what you call it, this mix brings together intelligence and a happy-to-please personality into a single (tiny) package.

The Corgi side can make this breed a bit more adaptable than a purebred Aussie, which means you can get all the energy and activeness of the latter, but with the readiness to learn of the Corgi.

And don’t forget about the coloring and those eyes! It’s not unusual for the Augie to inherit the heterochromia (different-colored eyes) of the Aussie. Whether blue or brown or both, you can be sure that an Aussie-Corgi mix will have a memorable look.

2. Horgi

Parents: Siberian Husky x Corgi mix

The Horgi is a Welsh Corgi Siberian Husky mix.
via Instagram: @a_xena_tenez

Here we’ve got another mix that goes by multiple names. Some say Siborgi, and others will call him the Horgski. Personally, I’m a fan of calling this designer dog the “Horgi.”

Whatever you call him, the result is the same: a breed that can be playful, friendly, but a bit mischievous all at the same time. While Corgis tend to be more docile, the Husky side can bring a little trickiness with it.

Siberian Huskies are known for getting into trouble and both parent breeds can be strong-willed and stubborn from time to time. Make sure to establish dominance in the household early on to deal with this problem.

With proper obedience training and attention, you could end up with a dog that has the face and eyes of a wolf, but the heart and temperament (and shape) of a teddy bear. We love the Horgi and see why the rest of the world does too.

3. Corman Shepherd

Parents: German Shepherd x Corgi mix

The Corman Shepherd is the beautiful cross between a German Shepherd and Corgi.
via Instagram: @hollyandboris

In theory, a Corgi and German Shepherd (see more German dogs here) seem at odds with each other. GSDs have stark, proud features that exude dignity. On the other paw, Corgis are borderline comical with their characteristic short legs.

Simply put: theory is downright misleading. The Corgi’s features can soften out those of the German Shepherd side while still maintaining a look that is smart and alert. These Corgi mixes embody all the best qualities of each parent breed.

The end result is a dog that has loads of intelligence and is fiercely loyal (and friendly) to those around it…so long as they are human. From what we’ve seen, this mixed breed tends to prefer human company over that of other canines.

4. Corgidor

Parents: Labrador Retriever x Corgi mix

The Corgidor combines the Welsh Corgi with the most popular dog in the world.
via Instagram: @lifewithkip

Another one of our favorites, the Corgi-Labrador mix is yet another friendly and intelligent dog perfect for families. And, we are not alone in thinking so. The AKC has named Labs as the most popular breed for 27 years in a row.

Labs are kind-natured and caring dogs that make perfect partners. When this is combined with the playfulness of a Corgi, the result is…that you spend the rest of your day looking at pictures of Corgidor puppies instead of working.

Kidding aside, the actual result is a dog that has a huge heart and will brighten the day for those around it with its friendly temperament. And even though Corgis can be a bit high-strung in some cases, you can expect the Lab side to mellow that out quite a bit.

5. Corgi Inu

Parents: Shiba Inu x Corgi mix

The Adorable Corgi Inu is part Shiba Inu, part Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @nala_meetsworld

Worlds collide with the Corgi Inu, bringing together the Welsh Corgi and the Shiba Inu for a heart-warming mix of East and West.

The Shiba Inu is known for being a bold, fastidious breed with a dignified heritage. They are known to clean themselves (like a cat), thanks to their independent nature. Combined with a Corgi, the Corgi Inu strikes a balance between playfulness and calm repose.

Depending on which parent they take after, this Corgi mix could lean towards being either energetic or reserved. However, we generally see a more mild-tempered dog that brings out the energy when the situation calls for it.

Either way, a Corgi Inu might tempt you to through away your pillow and keep them as a replacement. The Shiba Inu is recognizable for its puffy double-coat, and Corgis also have a reputation for fluff…so, you do the math.

6. Corgi-Dalmatian

Parents: Dalmatian x Corgi mix

The Corgimatian is the Dalmatian Welsh Corgi mix.
via Instagram: @corgimatian

This is one of our personal favorites – just because they’re so unique. With the distinctive coloring of a Dalmatian, but the stature of a Corgi, this mix is an unforgettable (but still very beautiful) sight.

Bringing together the attitudes of a Corgi and a Dalmatian results in a dog that is playful and friendly with both humans and other animals alike. However, this cheery attitude belies a dog that is also intelligent and keen on learning.

Dalmatians have a history as a working breed, so they bring an enthusiasm to learn and help to this mix. Because Corgis were herding dogs, expect a playful energy that’s both pleasant and endearing.

When blended together, you get a dog that is just as prepared to serve as a legit watch dog (though a distinctly non-intimidating one) as it is to curl up on your lap for a snooze. They’re the perfect ice-breaker, too.

7. Corgipom

Parents: Pomeranian x Corgi mix

The Corgipom is the crossbreed of a Pomeranian and Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @pikuthecorgipom

While this mix isn’t officially recognized, it is hard to deny its appeal. Poms are a favorite as companions because of their size and massive amounts of fluff. And Corgi’s…well, we already know how popular they are.

This Corgi mix might be difficult to find, but if you can, you’re in for a treat. So long as you don’t mind a bit of barking, since both Pomeranians and Corgis are known to enjoy using their vocal cords.

Oh, and not to mention the grooming might require some patience, as both parents sport a high-shedding double coat. But all things considered, this breed makes for a friendly dog that will be ready to stand by your side.

8. Chorgi

Parents: Chow Chow x Corgi mix

The Chorgi is a unique blend of the Chow Chow and Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @robertthetherapydog

Hailing from Northern China, the Chow Chow is unmistakable with its incredibly thick fur and its blue-black tongue. When mixed with a Corgi, the results are a bit unpredictable, but in a good way.

Since the two breeds have such distinct features, you could end up with a Corgi that has hints of Chow, or a Chow that leaves a Corgi-like impression.

In terms of temperament there is also plenty of room for variation. Chow Chows can be anything between super reserved and calm to somewhat aggressive and protective. Of course, a lot of this has to do with upbringing and training.

Without a doubt though, a Chorgi would be a favorite for those who appreciate big balls of fluff. Just realize you’ll need to clean up after the fluff ball.

9. Porgi

Parents: Chinese Pug x Corgi mix

The Porgi is a combination of the Pug and Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @georgie_the_porgi

Here we have a mix of two breeds that have both enjoyed royal attention. The Corgi is well known for being the breed of choice for the Queen of England, and flat-faced breeds such as Pugs once had the favor of emperors in China.

When you put the two together, the result is a decidedly unique look. The combination may not be for everyone, there is no denying that it sticks in your head. In most cases, you’ll get a Pug face on a Corgi body.

Pugs are known to be a bit on the snoozy side, so don’t be surprised if your dog enjoys taking naps as much as it enjoys playing around. But as much as they love sleeping, they also want to stay up to date with their owners.

The good news is that they’re relatively quiet dogs. Although Corgis love to bark, the Pug side mellows them out with their vocal activities. In other words, they’re a great choice for those that live in apartments.

10. Golden Corgi

Parents: Golden Retriever x Corgi mix

The Golden Corgi is the Golden Retriever and Pembroke Welsh Corgi mix.
via Instagram: @dailydoseof_milo

Though it doesn’t yet have a catchy official name, the Corgi Golden Retriever mix is rising in popularity. Given the current popularity of each parent dog breed, this was an obvious designer dog to breed.

They’re essentially Corgis in the signature golden coat. But unlike some of the other Corgi mixes on this list, this one seems seems less dominated by the Corgi’s features and ends up looking more like a scaled down Golden Retriever.

Golden Corgis are great for those who love the personality and features of the Golden, but aren’t quite prepared to live with a large dog. If you live in an apartment or smaller house, the Golden Corgi mix would be much more suitable.

However, be ready for heavy shedding – both parents are notorious shedders. So, regular grooming and care are going to become routine parts of your life if you don’t want to wake up covered in layers of fur!

11. Chigi

Parents: Chihuahua x Corgi mix

The Chigi, or Chorgi, is a combination of the Chihuahua and Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @maddiethechorgi

Some might debate how to name this mixed breed (Chorgi?), but we’re sure most would agree that it is a precious little dog. This Chihuahua Corgi hybrid gives you the blind courageousness of the Chihuahua with the playfulness of the Corgi.

Most of the dog breeds on this list see Corgis mixed with similar-sized or larger dog. This one takes things in the other direction. Chihuahuas are known for being the smallest dog breed ever, and the Chigi can be almost as small.

Some features to look for might be the Chihuahua’s signature “apple head,” triangular ears and narrow snout, alongside the Corgi’s short legs and thicker fur. Surprisingly, the two dogs mesh well in terms of appearance.

While Corgi’s are generally more playful, this unique mix might pick up some of the fiery characteristics of the Chihuahua, making for a dog that is equal parts playful and zesty.

12. Pembroke Sheltie

Parents: Shetland Sheepdog x Corgi mix

The Pembroke Sheltie is a unique blend of the Sheltie and Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @duke.thedawgg

The Shetland Sheepdog, also called the Sheltie, is known as being one of the brightest dog breeds around. So when mixed with a Corgi, you can end up with a dog that is a balance of fun and brains with strong affection and loyalty.

However, the Sheltie’s athleticism might be tempered by the physical limits of inheriting the Corgi’s legs. Though a Pembroke Sheltie mix might not become the next dog sports champion, it is sure to still be energetic and ready to play or learn.

As both parents are known herding specialists, there is a chance they will enjoy chasing after other pets or people. But not to worry, this is not out of a sense of aggression, but just their herding instincts taking over.

13. Schnorgi

Parents: Mini Schnauzer x Corgi mix

The Schnorgi is a miniature Schnauzer and Corgi mix.
via Instagram: @chewietheschnorgi

There is a lot of possible variation with how this Corgi mix will look, but a common trend is that they have the head and fur of a Schnauzer but the body of a Corgi – just imagine a shorter Schnauzer.

Generally playful and energetic, this mixed breed is usually rather agreeable, but can also display a stubborn streak, likely coming from the Corgi side’s strong will. Proper training and a calm, consistent, and confident display of dominance should keep this in check.

Though they get along well with people of all ages, they tend to show a preference for older children and adults. Younger children simply might not know how to give them the constant, but gentle, attention they look for from their owners.

14. Corgoyed

Parents: Samoyed x Corgi mix

The Corgmoyed is a combination of the Samoyed dog and Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @winter.snowe

The Samoyed is a beautiful while-furred dog breed that comes from the harsh climate of northern Russia and Siberia. Though their size can be intimidating, they’re almost never aggressive nor dominant.

This gentle nature can combine well with a Corgi, mellowing out the sometimes nippy and hyper temperament of the Welsh breed. However, this can vary in individual dogs.

If you live in hot climates though, this might not be the mixed breed for you, especially if the dog takes after the Samoyed’s thick coat. Either way, the double coats of both parent dogs were developed for colder climate.

They’ll be much more at home frolicking around piles of snow than baking beneath the sun. These dogs are in their “element” when living in colder climate.

15. Corgi Pit

Parents: Pit Bull Terrier x Corgi mix

The Corgi Pit is part American Pit Bull Terrier and part Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @evabean_the_divaqueen

American Pit Bull Terriers are known for their aggressive looks, all while having hearts of gold. But when you bring these qualities to mix with a Welsh Corgi, the result is amazing. And, that’s exactly what the Corgi Pit is.

You get a hybrid that can display some of the more muscular features of a Pitbull, but in the unique overall shape of a Corgi. They’ll likely take after the Pitbull parent for its coat, which means grooming can be easier than with other Corgi mixes.

Despite being easier to care for in terms of grooming, having Pitbull blood means that they will be sensitive, emotional dogs. We recommend this Corgi mix for adults or families with only older children. Experienced owners preferred.

16. Corger

Parents: Boxer x Corgi mix

The Corger is a mix between the Boxer and Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @arlothecorgimix

The Corger, or the Boxer-Corgi mix, is a mutt that’s guaranteed to be both energetic and outgoing. The outcome will be a well-built and sturdy medium-sized dog, but with a ton of personality and charisma.

From the Boxer side, expect plenty of energy, but also stores of patience. They can get along well with older kids and adults. In addition, they’re likely to inherit the Boxer’s build alongside shorter fur

In any case, they’ll likely become intensely attached to their owners. Although Corgis can be more independent and stubborn, the Corger will likely inherit the fiercely loyal nature from the Boxer side. They’ll always be there for you!

17. Corgipoo

Parents: Toy Poodle x Corgi mix

The Corgipoo is a hybrid of the Miniature Poodle and Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @poppythecorgipoo

This Poodle-Corgi hybrid has a lot of room for variation. Since Toy Poodles are so petite, a Corgipoo could end up with a tiny dog. Though, sometimes they’re a chunky (though still little), somewhat poodle-looking, dog.

The good news is that most Corgipoos tend to inherit the curly hypoallergenic coats of the Poodle side. While not entirely hypoallergenic, you may find it less irritating if you suffer from pet allergies. 

Combining the temperaments of a Toy Poodle and a Corgi will net you a dog that is both active and companionable. However, it’s worth mentioning that these dogs are infamously mischievous. These little tricksters love to have fun, but it’s adorable nonetheless.

18. Corgi-Greyhound

Parents: Greyhound x Corgi mix

There is currently no official name for the Corgi Greyhound mix.
via Instagram: @masked_celeste

The Corgi-Greyhound deserves a better name. Perhaps, the Corghound? Corgis are short, round, and fluffy. And Greyhounds are tall, lithe, and lean. As a result, the hybrid is a Corgi mix that is equally stunning and interesting.

Corgis are good at waddling around and capturing hearts, while Greyhounds are prized for their speed and athleticism (though their affectionate nature is not to be forgotten). It’s no doubt a strange combination, but it works.

The result is a hybrid that can display the energy and confidence of a Greyhound, but in the shape of a Corgi. They’ll want to play – all the time. So if you plan to bring one home, make sure you can keep up with them!

19. Dobergi Pinscher

Parents: Doberman Pinscher x Corgi mix

Crossbreeding the Doberman Pinscher and Welsh Corgi gives you the Dobergi.
via Instagram: @aruotolo15

Among all the Corgi mixes, this may be the least obvious. The Dobergi is the strange cross between the fierce Doberman Pinscher and the cuddly Welsh Corgi. And as you can see, this results in a cute Dobe with short legs.

Most Dobergi Pinschers come in the signature Doberman coat: black with tan highlights. While the face may also look like a Doberman (including the long pointy ears), the body almost always looks like a Corgi.

These designer dogs are among the rarest because they’re two parents are very different dogs. It’s not everyday you’ll run into a Doberman Corgi mix. However, they’re interesting to see if you come by one.

20. Beagi

Parents: Beagle x Corgi mix

The Beagi is the wonderful combination of the Beagle and Corgi.
via Instagram: @goodtimelenny

The Beagi is a cross between the Beagle and either the Pembroke or Cardigan Welsh Corgi, though the Pembroke is more common. They’re a very unique mutt with a lot of hallmark traits from both parents.

For instance, the Beagi will have droopy ears and a curly erect tail – as seen in Beagles. However, they’ll usually inherit the short stature, along with facial features of a Corgi. And in my opinion, they’re super adorable.

Typically friendly and sweet, Beagis have favorable temperaments. Plus, they’re devoted to their owners and are always willing to please. But like the Welsh Corgi, the Beagi can be over-protective with strong territorial instincts.

21. Saint Corgnard

Parents: Saint Bernard x Corgi mix

The St. Corgnard is the not-so-obvious cross of a St. Bernard and Corgi.
via Instagram: @kipper_the_pup

The Saint Corgnard is not a Corgi mix you see every day. In fact, I may have even made up the name. But the fact is, they do exist and they are unbelievably awesome designer dogs.

There are very few known cases of these mutt dogs and as a result, very little info on the personality and temperament. However, we have a good idea how they look physically.

Saint Corgnards typically have the coat colors of the Saint Bernard. Sometimes, they’ll even have the droopy ears from that same parent. From the Corgi side, they’ll inherit the iconic the short statue and legs (as always).

22. Bulldorgi

Parents: English Bulldog x Corgi mix

The Bulldog Corgi mix doesn't have an official name, but let's call them the Bulldorgi.
via Instagram: @susan_factor

The Bulldog Corgi mix, also known as the Bulldorgi, is the interesting combination of two very different dogs in both personality and appearance. The Bulldog side provides a much sturdier build and frame.

But because they’re such rare hybrids, they can vary quite a bit physically. Depending on the parent, the face can look more like a Bulldog or Corgi. However, they’ll always have the short stature thanks to the Corgi’s dwarfism.

The Bulldorgi is a very independent and courageous dog. They can be great workers, but also laid back as well. It’s also not uncommon for these dogs to do on their stubborn streaks. Plus, they can be a little more aggressive in nature.

23. Borgi

Parents: Border Collie x Corgi mix

The Borgi is a wonderful cross between the Border Collie and Corgi.
via Instagram: @olytheborgi

What happens when you crossbreed two hard-working, herding dogs? You get the Borgi – the equally hard-working and stunning cross between a Border Collie and Welsh Corgi. If you get a Borgi, herding trials are a must!

Though looks can vary, you typically get a fluffy Corgi with Border Collie colors. The Borgi is small dog with a ton of crazy energy. Make sure you put them to work with obedience training and activities.

They’ll be smaller than a Border Collie and inherit the short legs of the Corgi. And if you ever need any herding work, it’s probably a good idea to give them a try. After all, both parents are renowned herding dogs.

24. Corpin

Parents: Mini Pinscher x Corgi mix

The Corpin combines the Miniature Pinscher with the Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @avery.the.corpin

Corpins are hybrid dogs that combine the Corgi with the Miniature Pinscher. Both of which, are some of the best small companions in America.

The Corpin will have a smoother, longer coat when mixed with the Pembroke. Plus, they’ll usually be smaller. On the other hand, Cardigan Corpins are slightly larger, with a darker rough coat. Again, this can vary.

The Corpin is very people-oriented. They get along with all people and can show a great deal of affection towards familiar faces. However, they can be independent at times and won’t always want to be lazy lap dogs.

25. Cava-Corgi

Parents: Cavalier King Charles x Corgi mix

The Cavacorgi is comprised of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Welsh Corgi.
via Instagram: @stanleytuccithedog

These small hybrid dogs are full of positive energy. They’re the cross of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Welsh Corgi. As such, the Cava-Corgi is one of the easiest Corgi mixes to care for.

They’re dog and people-friendly, especially with children. They don’t require too much physical activity, but are always willing to play. But while they’re fantastic lap dogs, they’re great activity companions too.

Put them in a room with your children and they’ll quickly win over their hearts. There’s a lot to love about these easy-going designer dogs and people have taken notice of. Also, we recommend these Corgi mixes from even new owners.

26. Corgi Schip

Parents: Schipperke Dog x Corgi mix

The Corgi Schip is one of the most unusual Corgi mixes ever developed.
via Instagram: @helichrysumjim

Bred from the Schipperke and Corgi, the Corgi Schip is easily one of the most underrated designer dogs. They’re adorable, affectionate and friendly. And despite their shortness, they make great watchdogs.

Both parent breeds are a little territorial, protective and alert, which explains why they’re decent watchdogs. And because both parents are intelligent breeds, you can expect your Corgi Schip to be highly capable as well.

The Schipperke was bred for hunting small vermin, while the Corgi was bred for herding livestock. These skills and instincts can pass along to the Corgi Schip depending on the dog. That being said, cats and small kids may not be ideal for them.

27. Cairn Corgi

Parents: Cairn Terrier x Corgi mix

The Combination of the Cairn Terrier and Corgi gives you the Cairn Corgi mix.
via Instagram: @otis_is

The Cairn Corgi is a hybrid of both Scotland and Wales’ finest – the Cairn Terrier and Welsh Corgi. This UK super-hybrid can be a great addition to any family, especially those looking for a terrier with a calmer demeanor.

They’re affectionate dogs that are willing to please the owners. Not only are they smart dogs, but also highly trainable. However, expect to spend a lot of time keeping up with their mischievous side.

Despite the Corgis’ tendency to bark, the Cairn Corgi isn’t much of a barker. Sure, they’ll occasionally bark at you to grab your attention, but they won’t unnecessarily bark at every sound and moving thing. 

28. Corillon

Parents: Papillon x Corgi mix

via Instagram: @dusty_roo

The Corillon is the gorgeous hybrid of the Welsh Corgi and Papillon. Because both parents are highly intelligent, you’d expect nothing less from this Corgi mix. Plus, the Papillon side is a nice balance to the diligent nature of the Corgi.

Some owners have reported their Corillon to be intolerant of solitude thanks to the social nature of the Papillon. However, the Welsh Corgi side may bring a bit of stubbornness that requires obedience training to curb.

All in all, the Corillon is a wonderful lap dog that’s more active than most lap dogs. These dogs have an affectionate side with a positive vibe that any family is bound to love. Just make sure you reciprocate their love.

29. Cortese

Parents: Maltese x Corgi mix

via Instagram: @lucerokobe

This new designer dog combines the adorable Maltese with the wildly popular Pembroke Welsh Corgi. They were bred to be extraordinary lap dogs, and that’s what they do best. These dogs will stick by your side!

Most of the time, the Cortese will inherit the hypoallergenic coats from the Maltese parent. So expect the long, thick and silky coat that Malteses are so famous for. However, the coat color can range anywhere from white to blue.

In the home, the Cortese is affectionate, loyal and fun-loving. With the Maltese side, their friendliness goes up another notch. They can enjoy the company of other dogs, kids and even seniors. Though, stubbornness does run in their blood.

30. Cojack

Parents: Jack Russell Terrier x Corgi mix

via Instagram: @uchiboi

No, the Cojack isn’t a fancy heavy-duty tool. Rather, it’s the lovable crossbreed of the Jack Russell Terrier and Welsh Corgi. Due to the terrier side, the Cojack is inevitably a spirited and bold Corgi hybrid.

These dogs have have inherited the short Corgi legs, but they’re “full of life.” Expect a lively and energetic dog who’s also friendly and intelligent. The Cojack really did take all the best qualities from each parent breed.

At home, these Corgi mixes are as versatile as any dog. They’re down to play if you’re up for it, but they’re always willing to snuggle up on the couch. The best thing is that they rarely bark, unlike most purebred Corgis.

31. Dorgi

Parents: Dachshund x Corgi mix

via Instagram: @hirothedorgi

If you’re looking for the most adorable Corgi mix, this Dorgi may just be it. These cute mutts combine the Dachshund and Corgi – both known for their elongated body and short legs. So, it’s safe to say Dorgis will have the same.

The Dachshund parent brings in a variety of coats for these dogs. The Dorgi can have a wiry coat, but also short or long coarse coat. It depends on the type of coat the Dachshund has, plus who the dog inherits more from.

These dogs play well with children, as long as the kids can be gentle. We still advise adult supervision during play time. On the bright side, Dorgis are highly intelligent. However, both Dachshunds and Corgis are stubborn dogs.

32. Shorgi

Parents: Shih Tzu x Corgi mix

via Instagram: @dibbyandcoby

Despite the long heritage of both the Shih Tzu and Welsh Corgi, the hybrid called Shorgi, is a relatively new designer dog. One parent breed is a natural working dog, the other was developed for companionship. The Shorgi is a pleasant balance.

Because of their unwavering loyalty and deep affection for their owners, Shorgis are not ideal for busy owners. Keeping them at home all day may lead to destructive behaviors. So make sure you’re able to spend quality time with them.

It’s not that they demand a ton of physical activity, like other Corgi mixes. They really just need the attention and support from their owners. As a matter of fact, they’re quite calm dogs at home. That said, we’d suggest them for larger families.

What’s My Corgi Mix?

Every day, I get so many questions regarding the breed of owners’ Corgi mix. Sure, I’ve done my research, but there’s no way for me to tell due to the variation in looks. Plus, it’s near impossible to figure out with pictures.

And if your Corgi mix came from a rescue group or animal shelter, it’s likely the staff got the true breed wrong. According to the AAHA, most shelters just make an educated guess. There’s no genetic testing done.

The only way to know is through a dog DNA test, such as the Embark DNA Test:

Embark’s DNA test is by far the most reputable and accurate test. More importantly, they have the most data to identify breeds with. However, there are two options you can get:

  1. Breed Identification Kit – This is perfect if you just want to know what breed your Corgi is mixed with. They have a genetic database consisting of over 250 breeds to check with. In addition, they’ll set up a family tree for the dog!
  2. Breed + Health Kit – Provides health screenings for over 170 genetic diseases. Corgis are prone to issues such as hip dysplasia and other disc disease, so knowing this valuable info could help prevent future issues.

We are happy family members of a sweet Basset-Corgi (reported by the rescue) and we think she’s a phenomenal dog, with great energy and the perky ears of the corgi (other Basset-Corgis I have seen have the floppy ears, but not our girl). She is terrifically socialized but definitely prone to bark in the yard.

  • We have a Corgi, Heeler, Jack Russell mix. He’s extremely cute, loves kids, rarely barks, except when guarding and has massive energy, but is equally snuggly. We just love him. I wish I knew how to post a photo of him.

  • Sporgi = Springer Spaniel + Pembroke Corgi mix

    Sporgis are a very common corgi mix found in the U.K.

    We have 2 Sporgi mixes. They are sisters from the same parents (2 AKC show dogs owned by the same family). But our girls are 18 months apart in age. One from the first litter and one from the last before mom was spayed. They have different traits from each parent. Winter is red like their mother but has their father’s tail- long, undocked and with feathery flags. Summer is the liver/black color, same as their dad but a cute bunny butt with the docked tail like mom. They have corgi shaped ears but they flop like the springers ears. Very cute. Both are on short legs and have long backs. Good herding instincts and good untrained hunting/flushing instincts. Winter has helped on quail hunts and is a natural in the bush. Summer is a good herding dog but big sister Winter is better. Winter is great with goats and chickens.
