Adorable pictures of Corgi cross-bred dogs

11 Jun

The name Corgi literally means “dwarf dog” in Welsh.  Dwarfism is a dominant gene, therefore when crossing dwarf dogs, such as Corgi’s, with non-dwarf dogs, the gene takes over.  Here are some examples of what the results can be…

Corgi / Australian Shepherd

Corgi / Australian Cattle Dog

Corgi / Basset Hound

Corgi / Beagle

Corgi / Black Labrador

Corgi / Border Collie

Corgi / Chihuahua

Corgi / Chow Chow

Corgi / Dachshund

Corgi / Dalmation

Corgi / English Bulldog

Corgi / German Shepherd

Corgi / Golden Retriever

Corgi / Jack Russell

Corgi / Long Hair Dachshund

Corgi / Papillon

Corgi / Pomeranian

Corgi / Pug

Corgi / Sheltie

Corgi / Shiba Inu

Corgi / Siberian Husky

Corgi / Toy Poodle

Corgi / West Highland Terrier (Westie)

Corgi / Yorkshire Terrier (Yorkie)

    WOW! That Corgi / Long Hair Dachshund mix looks exactly like my dog named Bear. I got him in February 2009 from Southern VA…any chance there’s a relation?

    That first pic is our Evie! I’d know that face anywhere. She doesn’t always look so dorky though. :)

      I think she looks ADORABLE! Which is why she’s first. And, perhaps, because I own two Aussies so I’m a bit partial to Aussies……… :)

    The name “Corgi” might mean “dwarf” but scientifically they are not dwarfs. The short-legged gene may be dominant, but it has nothing to do with dwarfism, only breeding.

      Short legs like this is a canine dwarfism. I do not mean to be rude here but my best friend who I share a house with is a professional breeder and show-person. She’s in her early 60’s and has showed dogs since she was a child. Been in the Westminster 3x. She knows her stuff. When she tells me that short legs like this is called dwarfism, I’m going to believe her.
