Affectionate, smart, and alert, Corgis are a charming dog breed that most people can't help but adore. "Pet people everywhere have fallen in love with this small, short-legged breed," says Kate Karam, resident pet expert at Chewy. "Not only do they have adorable facial expressions, but the Corgi 'sploot' became an internet sensation, a coined term for a signature Corgi stretching position." So it's no wonder that so many mixes have been born as a result. In fact, there are more than 50 breeds of Corgi mixes. And while each pup is individually different, they typically possess some of the signature traits of the breed. "Whether Pembroke Welsh or Cardigan Welsh (how to tell them apart? Pembroke Corgis have no tails, while Cardigans do), Corgis with their short little legs, fluffy coats, and loyal love for their pet parent, are known to be one of the happiest, friendliest breeds," says Karam. "Originally serving as herders for livestock, they have translated that temperament into a very playful and outgoing personality which makes them a great companion."

Adopting a Corgi or Corgi mix is one of the most rewarding ways to bring them into your life. Local shelters and rescue organizations may have these dogs looking for a new home, so start there to meet your Corgi match. You can also use Chewy's shelter and rescue page to look for nearby locations. It's a great way to find one of them a "furever home." Here, we discuss a dozen of the most popular Corgi bred mixes and their characteristics.

I had 2 corgis, both rescue dogs, and they were the sweetest, most loving dogs ever.Martha is not pushing interbreeding. She is showing us what the different types are. I am looking for a new rescue corgi- I lost both my cocker spaniels this year.

Why would you promote the purposeful breeding of mutts??? Seriously, you do nothing in this article that is beneficial such as the health risks, temperament problems and care that happens when mixing two distinct breeds. You also mistakenly use the generic work Corgi as an all encompassing word for two separate breeds. Where's your article on the guide to retriever or terrier or spaniel mixes? Shame on you as a publication who's founder promotes heritage livestock and purebred dogs. Shame shame shame
