Also known as the Corman Shepherd, the Corgi German Shepherd mix is an adorable hybrid. This pooch is playful and hardworking, taking some of the best traits from both of its parents. They’re loyal and intelligent and will make a great family dog for just about anyone. Let’s learn more about this fantastic crossbreed.


Genetics will always do its thing, but this hybrid typically looks one way over the other. For example, they’ll usually have the face and coat color of the German Shepherd with the body and build of the Corgi. This pooch will end up with a thick, double coat from both of their parents.

Corgi German Shepherds are usually medium in size since one parent is a medium-sized doggo and the other is a small dog breed. They have an average height of 12 to 15 inches tall and weigh between 20 to 70 pounds.


Affectionate, sweet, and playful describes this hybrid well. Corgi German Shepherd will make a great family dog. They are friendly with just about everyone and will enjoy spending time with their family. In fact, they’ll hop up on the couch and cuddle with you. They might even try to be a lapdog, despite their size. Meet Hawke…

This doggo enjoys working, and they’ll do a great job keeping an eye on the kids in the yard. They’ll play with young kids and get along well with them. Even though the Corgi is prone to back problems, this crossbreed is more sturdy. So, you can have peace of mind knowing your pooch shouldn’t get injured during playtime with the children.

On the other hand, this mixed breed can be stubborn and might get a bit possessive. They may not like having other dogs in the house. With early socialization and training, though, this can be nipped in the bud. 

Caring for your Corgi German Shepherd mix

With proper care through dieting, exercise, and healthy grooming habits, this mixed breed has an average lifespan of 12 to 15 years.


Thanks to their thick, double coat, this hybrid is not a hypoallergenic dog. They’re moderate to heavy shedders, depending on the time of year. You’ll want to brush their coat every day. This will keep any knots and tangles at bay and help control the shedding a little bit. In addition, brushing will keep their coat looking clean.

However, you should bathe your Corgi German Shepherd mix once every other month. This will surely keep their coat and skin clean and healthy. You can bring them to a professional groomer to ensure they get a proper groom. This is Maris…


Depending on how big your Corgi German Shepherd mix is, their diet will be different. You don’t want to feed them too much, or else they’ll gain too much weight. With that said, they can have about 1.5 to 3 cups of high-quality kibble per day, split into two meals. Talk to your veterinarian to discuss a meal plan for your doggo. 


Your Corgi German Shepherd will need regular exercise each day. This will help keep them fit but also curb their moderate to high energy levels. They’ll enjoy a long walk or a trip to the dog park. In addition, since they love working, you can even set up games to play with them. This way, your pooch will be physically and mentally stimulated. Surely they’ll be tired by the end of the day.

Health problems

Like all dogs, this crossbreed is prone to some health issues. They can inherit different health conditions from their parents or be prone to certain health concerns, thanks to genetics.

For example, this mixed pooch may get joint dysplasia, obesity, bloat, cataracts, or allergies.

With regular trips to the vet once or twice a year, you can be sure your doggo will stay as healthy as can be.

Where to find a Corgi German Shepherd mix

If you can find this hybrid through a breed-specific rescue or a shelter, that would be ideal. You can adopt a pup to give them a good home. However, this crossbreed might be hard to come by if you truly have your heart set on bringing this doggo home.

You can research reputable breeders who mix Corgis and German Shepherds. Just be sure to get to know the breeder before buying from them. Their top priority will be the puppies and not the money. In addition, they’ll allow you to meet the puppies and parents, having a vast knowledge of the family tree and health history. This is Roxy…
