Corgi mix breeds can look very different from one another. It will entirely depend on the other dog used!
Corgi cross breeds can also act very differently to one another. Some may be energetic and quick to learn, but others may love nothing more than curling up on the couch with you.
To find the best Corgi mixes for you, you must take a look at what potential characteristics your puppy could inherit from either parent!
What Are Corgi Mixes?
Corgi mix breeds are designer dogs with one Corgi parent, most often a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, but sometimes a Cardigan Welsh Corgi is used.
The other dog could be any purebred dog. First generation mixes have two purebred parents.
But, this means that puppies can inherit any blend of traits from these two dogs! So, one Corgi mix can be really different to the next.
Because of this, it’s really important that potential owners are prepared for any outcome.
Only one thing is certain. Due to the way dwarfism is inherited, all Corgi mix dogs will have disproportionally short legs. But, depending on how tall the “other” breed usually stands, they might not be quite as short as a purebred Corgi’s!
The best way to predict what a Corgi cross breed may be like is to take a closer look at the parent breeds.
