Corgi Husky Mix – The Complete Guide

Did you know you can have a Corgi Husky mix? It’s also called the Horgi, and it is an intelligent, friendly, and sociable mixed dog breed. This crossed is from a Siberian Husky and a Welsh Corgi creating a small to a medium-sized pooch. This adorable doggo will be a great addition to any family, so let’s learn more about it.

Appearance

Genetics will work its magic, and your mixed breed may look like one parent over the other. However, typically, Horgis are seen with long, stocky bodies, stubby legs, and a curved tail. All of this resembles the Corgi parent. This is Corbi…

This pooch will have a straight, medium-length coat that’s waterproof. They can come in many different coat colors and coat patterns, based on the coloring of the puppy’s parents. Most colors are possible, including agouti.

Since the Siberian Husky is a medium dog and Welsh Corgis are small, this hybrid can be either-or. Corgi Husky mixes can grow to be 13 to 15 inches tall and weigh 20 to 50 pounds. 

Temperament

Overall, the Horgi is a friendly breed, taking positive traits from both of its parent breeds. They’ll get along well with other animals such as dogs, cats, and small pets. In addition, they’ll do well with other people, including young kids. However, they will need to be well socialized at a young age.

This pooch is affectionate though they may be cautious. Luckily, they’re easy to train. But, of course, Horgi puppies may have a stubborn side to them, so that will need to be nipped in the bud early. Wes…

Corgi Huskies are usually on alert, making for a great guard dog. They will howl, thanks to the Siberian Husky in them, whenever they notice something is off.

Caring for your Corgi Husky mix

Due to their size and being relatively healthy overall, your Corgi Husky mix can live a long, happy life. They have a lifespan of 12 to 15 years, provided they have the proper care.

Grooming

This mixed breed has a double coat and, because of that, they will shed a lot. Therefore, you’ll want to give their coat a good brushing every day. This will keep tangles and knots at bay for them and control the shedding a little bit for you. In addition, a monthly bath will do them well. You can do this yourself or bring them to a professional groomer, so they get a good cleaning. Smole…

Diet

Since they’re prone to weight gain and have high energy, the Corgi Husky mix needs a diet that’s low-calorie and high in protein. Of course, every dog is different, so talk to your veterinarian about the right meal plan for your dog’s diet.

Exercise

The Corgi Husky mix will enjoy lots and lots of exercise and playtime. Thanks to their high energy levels, daily physical and mental stimulation will do them well. It will keep them well-behaved and tired out for the end of the day. Ideally, they’ll need at least a 60-minute walk and will surely enjoy running and playing with other dogs at the dog park for a couple of hours.

Health problems

Like the Dachshund, Corgi Husky mixes are prone to back problems (such as intervertebral disc disease) due to their long backs. They are also prone to weight gain and obesity, so you’ll need to keep a close eye on their diet. Other health issues that may arise are:

  • Degenerative myelopathy
  • Epilepsy
  • Eye problems
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA)
  • Skin problems
  • Von Willebrand’s Disease

With regular trips to the vet once or twice a year for check-ups, your pooch should remain healthy.  This is Willow…

Where to find a Corgi Husky mix

You most likely won’t find this hybrid at your local pet store. Instead, your best bet would be to adopt from a shelter or breed-specific rescues for Huskies or Corgis.

Alternatively, you can search for a reputable breeder. Just be sure to research breeders before choosing one to make sure they’re a good one, and the puppies (and their parents) are healthy.

How much does a Horgi cost?

If you decide to get a Corgi Husky mix through a reputable breeder, then you can expect to spend on the higher end of anywhere between $300 and $1,000. However, if you go through a shelter or rescue, this cost will be on the lower end.

Should you bring home a Corgi Husky mix?

No matter who lives in your house, a Corgi Husky mix will fit right in. They’re friendly with everyone though they might do better with older children, thanks to their high energy levels.

If you have the time to entertain this doggo during the day and give them ample exercise and playtime they need, then this crossbreed may be a good choice for you.
