In 2019 the launch of the movie called “The Queen’s Corgi” stormed movie theatres and since then, Corgi registrations have increased by 25% and public interest in the breed has spiked.
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has risen from 24th to 13th on the American Kennel Club’s most list of popular dogs and a similar trend can be seen with the Cardigan Welsh rising up 7 places from 75th to 68th most popular breed.
With their recent surge in popularity, a range of Corgi mix dog breeds have been spotted in dog parks across the states.
Here are twelve of the most popular Corgi mixes which are irresistibly cute.
Husky x Corgi Mix
Sometimes called the Horgi, Siborgi or Corgski; the Corgi Husky mix is an adorable ball of fluff.
Horgis will have a Siberian Husky mother and either a Cardigan or Pembroke Welsh Corgi father.
As with all the corgi mix breeds on this list, it is difficult to describe the appearance of the Siborgi.
Generally speaking, they are lowset like a Corgi, with the coat of a Husky, and there is also a chance your Corgski will inherit the bicolored eyes of the Husky!
These dogs love a game of fetch and will happily chase a ball for hours.
They are a great family dog as their natural sense of adventure makes them a great match for more active households.
However, their rambunctious nature means they tend to get themselves into trouble, occasionally forgetting their own strength. Consequently, they are better suited to homes with older children or teens.
German Shepherd x Corgi Mix
Generally known as a Corman Dog, this unique crossbreed is a hit with families of all ages.
These active dogs need at least 60 minutes of exercise each day and will probably still be bouncing around after their walk (tire these pups out with lots of games, stimulating both physically and mentally).
Corman Dogs love attention and thrive in homes where they can be fussed over so owners of the Corgi x German Shepherd should be prepared to devote lots of time to their dogs.
When this Corgi Mix feels they are not getting enough attention they can become quite upset and even destructive, this breed will quite happily tell you that they’re upset by shredding your shoes!
However, despite their occasional tendency to destroy your house, this pooch is a happy and loyal dog, totally devoted to their owner.
They are sensitive souls, who can read their owners mood with ease and will stop at nothing to cheer them up. If you are looking for an active and faithful family dog, then this mix is the dog for you.
Australian Shepherd x Corgi Mix
The Corgi x Australian Shepherd, often called the Aussie-Corgi or “Augie”, is a medium sized breed. Standing between 10 and 13 inches, this a great match for an active family with older children, especially if they are looking for a smaller dog.
A highly active pooch, this furry friend enjoys a good run around the garden and an even longer run around the park!
When correctly socialized, they are friendly and social dogs, getting on well with people and other animals from all walks of life.
They do occasionally deal well with other pets in their home, however, both Corgis and Australian Shepherds are herding dogs, and so they may attempt to herd other household pets. Consequently, they do better in single pet homes.
Dalmatian x Corgi Mix
A curious breed which has come from the desire for a pooch with a Corgi’s body and a Dalmatian’s coat. Although we cannot be sure, it is likely this breed was first bred during the designer breed phase in the 1990s.
This dog, sometimes called the Corgitian, is mostly known as a Dalmation x Corgi mix.
However, the lottery that is canine genetics means these canines often do not look like they are expected to.
With a Dalmatian mother and a Pembroke or Cardigan Welsh Corgi, they can look like either breed. No two puppies are the same, even within a litter of siblings they all will vary in appearance.
These dogs are very intelligent, giving them a natural talent for obedience.
Training this pooch is an easy task for experienced and inexperienced trainers alike. Not only this, they are naturally very active and enjoy playing with their families.
Corgitians have a very thick double coat, meaning they need regular grooming. Daily grooming helps to keep their gorgeously spotted coat in tip top condition.
Chihuahua x Corgi Mix
A Corgi x Chihuahua cross, often called a Chorgi, Corchi or Chigi, is a small pooch that has sprung into popularity during the last twenty years.
These family-oriented dogs make excellent family pets for those who live in smaller homes but still want the active nature of the Corgi.
Notoriously difficult to groom, a long haired Chihuahua crossed with a long haired Corgi is asking for trouble!
They will need daily brushing of their long double coat. Ideally a pin brush should be used, to remove excess hair.
The Corchi is a great match for first time owners, their naturally loving and intelligent nature makes them a great first pet.
Thanks to their Chihuahua parent, this breed has a natural playful and cheeky streak, making them an excellent family pet, they will happily chase a ball for hours, only stopping for the occasional belly rub.
Pug x Corgi Mix
A combination of two noble and old dog breeds, the Corpug is a Pug x Corgi which makes the perfect companion dog.
Their natural humor, from their Pug parent, makes them a comedic pooch, and a great match for families with children.
It is thought that this breed was first bred with the designer breeding craze in an attempt to create a new crossbreed. As a result, it is not particularly common and it may be difficult to find a responsible breeder.
This dog is a great match for those who would like a Pug but are worried about the health implications of brachycephalic (i.e. flat faced) dogs.
Pug x Corgi mixes are naturally social dogs, making them a good match for homes with other dogs or household pets, this crossbreed is known to get on well with cats and they can often be caught cuddling on the couch.
Funny and friendly, Corpugs are playful pets that are a great first pet for families, especially those with younger children.
Poodle x Corgi Mix
The Corgipoo is a small to medium sized dog that come in three different sizes (standard, miniature or toy).
They are bred by mixing a Corgi (either Pembroke or Cardigan) with either a standard, miniature, or toy Poodle.
Depending on the size of the two parent dogs, it can vary which breed is the sire (i.e. father) and which is the dam (i.e. mother).
Due to their Poodle parent, these balls of fluff come in many colors, including red, brown, black, cream, sable, brindle and white.
Unlike other dogs on this this list, there is potential for the Corgipoo to be hypoallergenic like their Poodle parent.
This is unlikely, and so those considering a puppy should spend lots of time with their puppy before purchasing or adopting a dog to see the effect on their allergies.
Corgipoos totally devote themselves to their owners, and can become quite distressed if separated from them for extended periods.
Consequently, they are best suited to home with owners who around most of the time, and can keep up with their bubbly personalities.
Golden Retriever x Corgi Mix
Both breeds are known for their incredibly affectionate and loyal nature, the Corgiever is a family favorite breed.
They are loyal to their owner and their Corgi temperament makes them incredibly cheeky too! This is usually toned down somewhat by the good nature of the Golden Retriever.
As the two parent breeds are totally different, it is near impossible to predict the appearance of the Corgiever. One thing is for sure, they will have a long coat, a cheeky face and a beautiful tail.
Their long coat means they are excellent cuddle buddies due to their fluffy coat, however it also requires a lot of grooming!
During shedding season, they will need almost daily brushing. Outside of this, brushing once or twice a week may be beneficial to keep their coat smooth.
These active dogs require lots of exercise, and consequently they are best suited to owners with moderately sized, fenced in yards.
Border Collie x Corgi Mix
A mix between two herding breeds, the Corgi Border Collie mix loves to work.
These workaholic dogs love to be worked and challenged. Not for the faint hearted, this intelligent dog needs a constant challenge or task, and without one can become quite frustrated.
A Border Collie Corgi mix is an excellent obedience dog. They also excel at canine sports such as agility or flyball.
Affectionately nicknamed the Borgi, this dog is a great match for those looking for a working dog.
They do well in adult only households where they are the only pet, as like other Corgi mixes in this list, they tend to try and herd children or other household pets.
Borgi’s completely devote themselves to their owner, they love to be by their side and can become incredibly distressed if removed from their owners for extended periods of time.
Staffordshire Bull Terrier x Corgi Mix
One of the rarest crossbreeds on the list, the Corgi x Staffordshire Bull Terrier has unknown origins. What is known is that this mix is friendly, affectionate and energetic.
This breed is less likely to be the result of designer crossbreeding. Instead, Corgi Staffy crosses are much more likely to be found in shelters as a result of accidental crossbreeding.
If well socialized when young, this crossbreed can get on well with people and other dogs. They are great companions for families with older children and would be well suited to someone who has experience with bull breeds.
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier x Corgi mix is a very low maintenance dog. They only require weekly grooming to remove shed hair, are not known to be fussy eaters and are relatively easy to train.
While they love a good walk, they are only moderately active requiring around 60 minutes of exercise each day, making them a good match for a somewhat active owner(s).
Labrador x Corgi Mix
A Corgi x Labrador Retriever, or Corgidor, is a relatively common crossbreed.
This modern family favorite is loved for mixing the caring nature of the Labrador with the spunk and sass of the Corgi.
Unlike other breeds, the Corgidor is very relaxed and is slow to anger.
Renowned for their patience with younger children, these dogs can tolerate small amounts of rough play and are generally considered to be excellent companions.
Corgidors are also known to be massive water babies.
This crossbreed loves to be in a water and can often be found at a local beach or dog pool on hot days.
They also enjoy hiking or long countryside walks, especially if they inherit the natural athleticism of the Labrador.
Pomeranian x Corgi Mix
Often called the Corgipom, the Corgi Pomeranian mix is a dog of Royal decent.
The current Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth has kept Corgis for years, but her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria kept Pomeranians… consequently, the Corgipom is something as a dog of royalty!
Both Corgis and Pomeranians are known to have a very stubborn streak and something of a diva personality.
This makes training this crossbreed something of a challenge. They are known to develop the yappy nature of small dogs, so early socialization is key.
When trying to trick train, a positive and consistent approach is required. However, while stubborn, this breed also has a silly streak and a will to please.
Owners of this Corgi mix are often found ending training sessions in fits of laughter.
All Corgi mix dogs will share their parent’s cheeky nature and happy faces. While it is not always true, most of these crossbreeds will inherit the best parts of their parents.
As with any other breed, when looking to get a dog there is much to consider before adoption.
When looking to purchase a hybrid, it is important to ensure that they are right for you, as some of these mixes will have higher energy requirements than others. Some breeds will also be better with children and other household pets than others too.
