The Beagi or Borgle is a mix between a Beagle and a Corgi. These are two active breeds that are likely to need regular daily exercise to keep them mentally and physically stimulated. Beagles were traditionally used for game hunting, while Corgis had a role to play in farm life as herders. They’re usually pretty social dogs that will get along with other people and other pets. They can make great companion dogs due to their size.
The Borgi is a mix between a Border Collie and a Corgi. Border Collies are regarded as the smartest dogs in the world, so there’s a fairly good chance a Borgi will have reasonably high levels of intelligence. Both Border Collies and Corgis were used to shepherd cattle and sheep, so they’re used to an active and working lifestyle. You can expect a Borgi to be hardworking, energetic and alert.
19) Cairn Corgi
The Cairn Corgi can make a great family dog given it’s small size. This is a mix between a Cairn Terrier and a Corgi. They’re likely to be affectionate dogs that will relish the company of their humans. Cairn Terriers were used to hunt vermin so they can have a slight prey drive. The Cairn Corgi mixed started to appear in the early 2000s.

The Cava Corgi is a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Corgi. The result is a friendly and sociable dog that loves to be part of the family. Cava Corgi will enjoy some playtime in the garden or yard as they get to stretch their legs. Let’s here a little from Bentley the Cava Corgi:
Stanley has only been around a handful of children and always does pretty well if they’re calm around him. I think he would be a perfect family dog.
No prizes for guessing what this mix could be. The Cohuahua is a cross between a Chihuahua and a Corgi. This is a relatively uncommon mix and they’re unlikely to be purposefully bred. Having said that, you can find some examples of this cross on Instagram. Their appearance can vary depending on whether they take after their Chihuahua or Corgi parent more.
Corgherds can have a striking appearance with mesmerizing eyes. This is in large part thanks to their Australian Shepherd parent. Like the Border Collie/Corgi mix, Corgherds have parents that were also bred for farm work. As a result, they’ll require regular mental stimulation and exercise to keep their minds active and satisfied. They can also be called Auggies.
The Corgiever is created by crossing a Corgi and a Golden Retriever. They usually have flowing blonde locks that mirror their Golden Retriever parent. They tend to be robust dogs that will excel in a family environment, especially with lots of time to play and romp in the garden or backyard. This is likely to be a mix that requires at least one daily walk a day if not more to satisfy their exercise needs.
Corgipom is a mix between a Corgi and a Pomeranian. They’re a relatively uncommon combination but you can find some examples of this particular cross breed on Instagram. Corgipom are usually small dogs with big personalities, so you’ll need to train them from a young age to lay down key groundrules and encourage desired behaviours. Their small size make them ideal for city dwellers.
The Corgipoo is a cross between a Corgi and a Poodle. Corgis are moderate to high shedders, so you can expect these dogs to shed twice a year. However, by mixing a Corgi with a Poodle, some breeders will try to create a mixed dog that is more hypoallergenic than the Corgi. Hence, they could be a fit for Corgi lovers who have allergies to dogs. Poodles are extremely smart like Corgis, so a Corgipoo is probably going to have a pretty high intelligence level.
This eye-catching combination is the result of breeding between a Corgi and a Dalmatian. You’ve probably never encountered a Corgiatian before given they’re a rare cross breed. Their appearance can differ but some will inherit the trademark white coat and black spots from their Dalmatian parent.

They’re likely to be heavy shedding dogs, unlike the Corgipoo. They’ll require lots of mental and physical stimulation to prevent unwanted behaviours.
10) Corgi Pekingese
Corgi Pekingese could be a good solution for anyone looking for a companion pet. The Pekingese is a small lap dog that has relatively low exercise needs. They’re bred to be companion dogs, so they won’t leave your side as you move about your home. Their small frames mean they may not be suited to homes with small children.
The Corpin is a unique mix between a Corgi and a miniature Pinscher. Usually Corpin will have coat that mirrors their Min Pin parent rather than the Corgi. They can make great watch dogs as they’re usually very alert. Corpin can adapt to a home with older children who are willing to interact and play with them.
A Corrier isn’t a dog that provides a delivery service. It’s a name given for a Corgi mixed with a Terrier. There doesn’t necessarily need to be a specific breed of Terrier mixed with a Corgi to yield a Corrier. It’s a blanket term to refer to these type of dogs.

The Cowboy Corgi have one of the most unique names of any Corgi mix. They’re a cross between a Blue Heeler and a Corgi.

The German Shepergi isn’t the most difficult mix to figure out. The German Shepherd is crossed with a Corgi to get this cross breed.

They’ll be big shedders given the German Shepherd and the Corgi are known to shed at least twice a year.
