Shorgi

Shih Tzu / Corgi Hybrid Dogs

The Shorgi is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Shih Tzu and the Corgi. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Shorgis

"These are our two boys, Brewster and Baggins (the more Corgi-looking ones) and their sister, Leilani, the puff-ball at 13 months old. Mom was a Shih Tzu and dad was a Cardigan Corgi. Instead of Shorgis, I often (to my wife's dismay) call them Shidigans. It covers the breed combination and their active excretory systems...and it makes me laugh. At 13 months, all three weigh about 17 pounds. They're all very active, but not what I'd call "yappy dogs." They do bark when alarmed, but are usually fairly quiet. The boys wrestle and play together all day...allowing plenty of time for naps! The boys live with us and their sister lives with my sister-in-law. When they get together, it's a riot to watch.

 
 

"Other notable behaviors are lots of licking and chewing. They will eat anything and have chewed a hole in the drywall in one part of our kitchen, along with gnawing several table and chair legs and numerous throw rugs. I think their favorite treat is gobbling up the Milk-Dud sized poops that our goats and alpacas create. We try to keep them out of it, but they invariably get a "bean" or two.

"Interestingly, none of them have the "ears up" aspect of their Corgi dad. Brewster had one up/one down for a while, but now all three have both ears down. Still cute as can be, but it would have been fun to have one with ears up, one with ears down.

"Other than that, all I can say is that they are adorable. They're big cuddlers and crave attention. And boy, can they give love. All in all, a great combination. Your readers may be amused to hear that their birth was a bit of a fluke. The owner of the Shih Tzu mom is a lawyer who works with my wife. He couldn't understand how the male Corgi across the street got her pregnant...after all, he had installed an invisible fence! Oh brother. Lawyers!"
