A fan-favorite among social media users and the Queen of England, the Pembroke Welsh 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 the Corgi’s trademark short legs with unique features of other breeds, the results are often beyond adorable and fascinating. That being said, here are the best, or at least our favorite, Corgi mixes that you really need to see.

What’s a Corgi?
The Corgi, or Pembroke Welsh Corgi, is an adorable bundle of joy that has taken the internet by storm. If you don’t believe us, we recommend you 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’re hard-working dogs.
Thanks to their double coat, they do shed quite a bit and require moderate grooming from time to time (especially during the shedding season). If you don’t want your house filled with corgi fur, make sure to brush them frequently.
The 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 tend to be very food-driven, which explains why they’re prone to obesity at an older age. It isn’t all bad, though. On the bright side, food-driven dogs are a lot easier to train. You already know their motivation is food!
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 developed 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 on alert and will have a tendency to bark at all things. 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 such 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.
Parents: Australian Shepherd x Corgi mix
Or is it an Augi…or even an Auggie (everyone seems to spell it differently). But no matter what you call the dog, this mix brings together intelligence and a happy-to-please personality into a single (yet tiny) package.
The Corgi genetics 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 eagerness to learn of the Corgi. Despite this, the Augi is much more balanced.
And don’t forget about the coloring of those eyes! It’s not unusual for the Augi to inherit heterochromia (different-colored eyes) from the Aussie parent. Whether blue or brown or both, you can be sure that an Aussie-Corgi mix will have a memorable look.

Parents: Husky x Corgi mix
Here we’ve got another mix that goes by multiple names. Some say Siborgi, and others will call him the Horgski. I’m a fan of the “Horgi.” But whatever you call him, the result is the same: a breed that can be playful, friendly, but a bit mischievous.
While Corgis tend to be more docile, the Husky side can bring a little trickiness with it. The 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 home.
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 adorable Horgi and it’s not a coincidence that rest of the world does too.
3. Corman Shepherd
Parents: German Shepherd x Corgi mix
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.

Parents: Labrador x Corgi mix
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.
Labradors are kind-natured and caring dogs that make perfect partners. When this is combined with the playfulness of the 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
Worlds collide with the Corgi Inu, bringing together the Welsh Corgi and the Shiba Inu for a mix of East and West. Because both parent breeds are extremely popular on the internet, this combination makes a lot of sense.
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.

Parents: Dalmatian x Corgi mix
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. You don’t see these hybrids every day.
Bringing together the attitudes of a Corgi and a Dalmatian results in a hybrid that is playful and friendly with both humans and other animals alike. However, this cheery attitude belies a dog that is also very 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. Oh – and they’re the perfect ice-breaker, too.
Parents: Pomeranian x Corgi mix
While this mix isn’t officially recognized, it’s hard to deny its appeal. Poms are a favorite as companions due to their size and massive amounts of fluff. And Corgis…well, we already know how popular they are within the dog-loving community.
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. But on the bright side, they’re great watch dogs.
Oh, and not to mention the grooming might require some patience, as both parents have a double coat that sheds like crazy. But all things considered, this breed makes for a friendly dog that will be ready to stand by your side.

Parents: Chow Chow x Corgi mix
Hailing from Northern China, the Chow Chow is unmistakable with its incredibly thick fur and its iconic blue and black tongue. However when mixed with a Welsh 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, but the short legs will always be present.
Chow Chows can be anything between super reserved and calm to somewhat aggressive or protective. Of course, a lot of this has to do with upbringing and training. If properly socialized early on, they might have a personality more like the Corgi’s.
But 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.
Parents: Pug x Corgi mix
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, but there’s 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. That said, they’re a great choice for those that live in apartments.

10. Golden Corgi
Parents: Golden Retriever x Corgi mix
Though it doesn’t yet have a catchy official name, the Corgi Golden Retriever mix is rising in popularity. 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.
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 would be much more suitable.
The hybrid looks like a scaled down Golden Retriever. However, be ready for heavy shedding – as both parents are notorious shedders. Regular grooming is going to become routine if you don’t want to wake up covered in layers of fur!
RECOMMENDED: 35 Greatest Golden Mixes
Parents: Chihuahua x Corgi mix
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. But 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: Sheltie x Corgi mix
The Shetland Sheepdog, also called the Sheltie, is known as being one of the brightest dog breeds in the canine kingdom. So when mixed with a Corgi, you end up with a dog that’s the ideal balance of fun and brains with 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 smaller children. But don’t worry, this isn’t the dog showing aggression. Instead, it’s just their herding instincts taking over.
Parents: Mini Schnauzer x Corgi mix
There’s a lot of possible variation with how this Corgi mix will look. However, a common trend is that they have the head and fur coat of a Schnauzer but the body of a Corgi – just imagine a shorter Schnauzer with those stubby legs.
Generally playful and energetic, this hybrid is rather agreeable, but can also display a stubborn streak, likely coming from the Corgi side. Proper training is crucial, but a calm, consistent, and confident display of dominance is more important.
Though the Schnorgi will get along with people of all ages, they tend to show a preference for older kids and adults. Younger children simply might not know how to give them the constant, but gentle, attention they need from their owners.
Parents: Samoyed x Corgi mix
The Samoyed is a beautiful while-furred dog that comes from the harsh climate of Northern Russia or Siberia. Though their size can be intimidating, they’re almost never aggressive nor dominant. They’re just sweet fluffy dogs.
This gentle nature meshes well with the Corgi, mellowing out the sometimes nippy and hyper-ness 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 while 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 x Corgi mix
American Pit Bull Terriers are known for their aggressive looks, all while having hearts of gold. But when you bring these qualities into a mix with the 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 may be a little sensitive or emotional. We recommend this Corgi mix for adults or families with older kids. Experienced owners will definitely make things easier.

Parents: Boxer x Corgi mix
The Corger, or the Boxer-Corgi mix, is a mutt that’s guaranteed to be both energetic and outgoing. This hybrid is a rare one. However, the result 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. Corgers love to play but know when to calm down. They can get along well with older children and adults. In addition, tend to inherit the Boxer’s build and shorter fur.
In any case, they’ll likely become intensely attached to their owners despite Corgis being independent or stubborn at times. The Corger will likely inherit the fiercely loyal nature from the Boxer side, so they’ll always be there for you!
Parents: Toy Poodle x Corgi mix
This Poodle-Corgi hybrid has a lot of room for variation. Since Toy Poodles are so small, a Corgipoo could end up being a tiny dog as well. Though, sometimes they’re a chunky (though still small), somewhat poodle-looking, dog.
The good news is that most Corgipoos tend to inherit the curly hypoallergenic coats of the Poodle side. So, you can expect less shedding. While they’re not entirely hypoallergenic, you’ll find them a lot less irritating if you suffer from pet allergies.
Combining the temperaments of the Toy Poodle with the Corgi will net you a dog that is both active and companionable. However, it’s worth mentioning that these dogs are infamously mischievous. They’re little tricksters that love to have fun, but it’s adorable nonetheless.

Parents: Greyhound x Corgi mix
The Corgi-Greyhound deserves a better name. Perhaps, the Corghound? Corgis are short, round, and of course, fluffy. And Greyhounds are tall, lithe, and lean. As a result, the hybrid is a Corgi mix that is equally stunning and unique.
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). There’s no denying that this is 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 have the time to keep up with them!
19. Dobergi Pinscher
Parents: Doberman x Corgi mix
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 and stubby legs.
Most Dobergi Pinschers inherit 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 takes from the Corgi parent.
These designer dogs are among the rarest because their two parents are very different dogs. After all, it’s not everyday you’ll run into a Doberman Corgi mix. But if you do come by one, they’re an interesting Corgi mix that’ll have your friends talking.
RECOMMENDED: 25 Dazzling Doberman Mixes
Parents: Beagle x Corgi mix
The Beagi is a cross between the Beagle and either the Pembroke or Cardigan Welsh Corgi, though the Pembroke is much more common. They’re a very unique mutt with a lot of hallmark traits from both of the parent breeds.
For instance, the Beagi will most likely have droopy ears and a curly erect tail – as seen in Beagles. But, they’ll usually inherit the short stature, along with facial features of a Corgi. And in my opinion, they’re super adorable hybrids.
Typically friendly and sweet, Beagis have favorable temperaments as the Beagle side will mellow out the energetic Corgi side. Plus, they’re devoted to their owners and are always willing to please. But like the Welsh Corgi, the Beagi can be over-protective.

21. Saint Corgnard
Parents: St Bernard x Corgi mix
The Saint Corgnard is not a Corgi mix you see every day. Who even thought this was a good idea? In fact, I may have even made up the name. But the fact is, they do exist and they’re unbelievably unique mixes from the designer dog world.
There are very few known cases of these mutt dogs and as a result, very little info on the personality or temperament of the Saint Corgnard. We can guess that they’re docile and friendly dogs though. On the other hand, we have a good idea how they may 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).
Parents: English Bulldog x Corgi mix
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 the Corgi side give them an adorable look.
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 genes.
The Bulldorgi is a very independent and courageous dog. They can be great workers, but also laid back in the home. It’s also not uncommon for these dogs to do on their stubborn streaks. Plus, they can be a little more aggressive if provoked.
Parents: Border Collie x Corgi mix
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 because both parents have the same. 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 that excel at their jobs.
RECOMMENDED: 27 Best Border Collie Mixes
Parents: Mini Pinscher x Corgi mix
Corpins are hybrid dogs that crossbreeds the Corgi with the Miniature Pinscher. Both of which, are some of the best small companions in America. Because both parents share similar qualities, this Corgi hybrid makes a lot of sense.
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 a people-oriented dog that loves attention. They get along with all people and can show a great deal of affection towards familiar people. However, they will be independent at times and won’t always want to be lazy lap dogs.
Parents: Cavalier King Charles x Corgi mix
These small hybrid dogs are full of positive and cheerful energy. They’re the cross of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Welsh Corgi. As a result, the Cava-Corgi is one of the easiest Corgi mixes to care for.
They’re friendly to both dogs and people, especially with children. They don’t require too much physical activity, but are always willing to play. And while they’re fantastic lap dogs that don’t mind lounging, the Cava Corgis can be 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. And if you’re a first-time owner, you can still have success with these Corgi mixes.
26. Corgi Schip
Parents: Schipperke Dog x Corgi mix
Developed from the Schipperke and Corgi, the Corgi Schip is easily one of the most underrated hybrid dogs we have. They’re adorable, affectionate and friendly. And despite their short stature, they’ll make great watchdogs.
Both parent breeds are a little territorial, protective and alert, which explains why they’re good at being watchdogs. And because both parents are intelligent breeds, you can expect your Corgi Schip to be a quick learner that’s highly capable of work.
The Schipperke was bred for hunting small vermin, while the Corgi was bred for herding livestock. The two skills and instincts can pass along to the Corgi Schip depending on the parentage. That being said, cats and small kids may not be ideal for them.
27. Cairn Corgi
Parents: Cairn Terrier x Corgi mix
The Cairn Corgi is a hybrid of both Scotland and Wales’ finest – the Cairn Terrier and Welsh Corgi. This English super-hybrid can be a great addition to any family, especially those looking for the terrier look with calmer demeanor.
They’re affectionate dogs that are willing to please the owners. Not only are they smart dogs, but also more trainable than your average terrier type. However, expect to spend a lot of time keeping up with the mischievous and playful side of this mix.
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 or communicate, but they won’t unnecessarily bark at every sound and moving thing (like some Corgis do).
Parents: Papillon x Corgi mix
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 side of the Corgi.
Some owners have reported their Corillon to be intolerant of solitude thanks to the sociable 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 going to love. Just make sure you reciprocate their love, and you’ll have a companion for life.
Parents: Maltese x Corgi mix
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 enjoy the company of other dogs, kids and seniors. Though, stubbornness does run in their blood.

Parents: Jack Russell x Corgi mix
No, the Cojack isn’t a fancy heavy-duty tool. Rather, it’s the lovable hybrid of the Jack Russell Terrier and the Welsh Corgi. Due to the terrier side, the Cojack will be a spirited and bold Corgi mix. Their energy will be off the charts.
These dogs have have inherited the short Corgi legs, but they’re “full of life.” Expect a lively and active dog who’s also friendly and intelligent. The Cojack really did take all the best qualities from each parent breed, especially if you live an active lifestyle.
At home, these Corgi mixes are as versatile as any dog. They’re down to play if you’re up for it, but they are always willing to snuggle up on the couch. The best thing is that they rarely bark, unlike most terriers or purebred Corgis.
Parents: Dachshund x Corgi mix
If you’re looking for the most adorable Corgi mix, this Dorgi may just be it. These cute mutts combine the Dachshund and a 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 (smooth, long, wire-haired) 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, so Dorgis will likely be stubborn too.
RECOMMENDED: 40 Dashing Dachshund Mixes
Parents: Shih Tzu x Corgi mix
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, while the other was developed solely 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 attention and support from their owners. As a matter of fact, they’re quite calm dogs while in the 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. 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 just a set of 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 actually no genetic testing being 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:
- 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!
- 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.

Saturday 7th of August 2021
We have a rescue dog that the shelter told us was a blue heeler / corgi mix. She is a control freak. At the dog park she always tries to stop the other dogs from playing too rough. We thought that was the blue heeler but after this article we found out that corgis are a herding dog too. She doesn’t look like a heeler at all so again, after this article, I now kind of doubt she has heeler. The shelter probably got it wrong. It would be interesting to try that DNA kit.
