A Guide to All the Different Types of Corgi Mixes
These companions inherit some of the best qualities from both of their parents—the Corgi bred with Huskies, Australian Shepherds, Poodles, and Chow Chows.
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.
The Aussie Corgi is a cross between the Australian Shepherd and Corgi. Due to their high energy and inquisitive nature, they don't tend to do well in apartment life. Young families and adults who live an active lifestyle are likely to give them both the attention and the play they crave.
The Corgidor is a cross between the Labrador Retriever and Corgi. Corgidors are affectionate pups that adapt well to living in apartments. These dogs are highly intelligent and possess a high level of energy, as well.
The Chorgi is a cross between the Chow Chow and Corgi. As a guard dog, they tend to be territorial and protective of their owners. Small but mighty, you'll have a sweet pup that will want to protect you and your family from perceived dangers.
The Corsky is a cross between the Siberian Husky and Corgi. This Corgi mix is playful, friendly, and loving with owners and do well with other pets. However, they do best in homes without small children. Corsky dogs sometimes even have the vivid crystal blue eyes that Huskies are known for.
The Coroodle is a cross between the Poodle and Corgi. What makes a Poodle mix (also known as a Doodle dog) desirable oftentimes are its dignified demeanor and hypoallergenic traits. The Coroodle has tons of energy and need plenty of time to play.
The Corgle is a cross between the Beagle and Corgi. Beagles tend to be easier to train and the Corgi-Beagle crossbreed often has the same trainability. This dog tends to get along well with other pets and makes a great family dog.
The Shar Corgi is a cross between the Shar Pei and Corgi. This pup could have either of the traits of the Shar Pei or of the Corgi, or some blend of both—in temperament, it's likely to be affectionate, devoted, and reserved.
The Bernese Corgi is a cross between the Bernese Mountain Dog and Corgi. Considering this breed's parental generation, your Corgi Bernese Mountain Dog mix puppy is intelligent and easy to train.
The Corgipom is a cross between the Pomeranian and Corgi. Looking for a cute, fluffy dog? Then the Corgipom, which inherits the long-haired genes from both its Pomeranian and Corgi parents, would be a perfect companion.
The Corgi Dalmatian is a cross between the Dalmatian and Corgi. It's likely to have the characteristic spots of the Dalmatian with the short legs and fluffiness of a Corgi.
