Corgi Inu Puppies

The Corgi Inu is a crossbreed between the Shiba Inu and the Welsh Corgi. Also known as the Shiba Corgi, this hybrid was first developed in the United States in the 2000s. Initially bred to be a companion dog and a guard dog, this breed is loyal, gentle, and friendly. Keep reading if you want to learn more about Corgi Inu puppies.

Where to get Corgi Inu Puppies

You can begin your search for this pup by calling your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have Corgi Inu puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption.

Most of these dogs have been at these places for a long time, waiting for the right family to come along. So, you can adopt and not shop while still getting a new furry friend. Plus, you’ll provide them with a forever, loving home.

On the other hand, if you have your heart set on getting a puppy and you want to know where the dog came from, then you can go through a reputable breeder. Since this breed is a designer dog, you won’t go through the American Kennel Club since they don’t recognize this breed. You’ll need to find ethical breeders on your own.  Dobby…

Luckily, you’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure it’s healthy and safe to do so (then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
  • Allow the parents and the litter to live in their home as part of the family without the use of kennels (aside from crate training)
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations

In addition, a good breeder will want to meet with you in person to get to know you so you can meet them, the parents, and the litter before deciding on adoption. Also, they’ll be open and honest with you. For instance, they’ll answer all of your questions about the breeder, the breed, the dogs and litter, the breeding process, and the adoption process.

So, if you find a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you’ll want to avoid working with them. For instance, they might be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill, and they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes.

The Cost

The average coat of Corgi Inu puppies is between $400 and $4,000 or higher. However, the price can vary depending on a few factors, such as the time of year, the breeder’s location, the breed’s popularity, or the number of puppies in the litter.

Appearance

Corgi Inu puppies will grow to be small dogs, with males slightly bigger than females. For example, males can grow to be about 13 to 15 inches tall and weigh between 20 to 25 pounds. On the other hand, females can grow to be about ten to 12 inches tall and weigh between 15 to 20 pounds.

In addition, they can look like either parent’s breed but will typically have a medium coat. Their coat colors and markings may be:

  • Black
  • Blue
  • Brindle
  • Brown
  • White
  • Red
  • Pied
  • Fawn
  • Sable

Temperament

There’s a lot to love about this doggo. For instance, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re great around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people.

However, they need plenty of early socialization and training. They can be stubborn while training but respond well to positive reinforcement. Otherwise, they can be easy to train, especially if you have help from a professional dog trainer.

In addition, they have high energy levels. Therefore, you’ll want to provide them with a bigger house with a fenced-in yard rather than an apartment. However, they can live well in an apartment. 

Corgi Inu Puppies – Veterinary Needs

You can bring your puppy to the vet a few times for the first year to keep track of its growth and development. Also, you can keep them up to date with their shots and boosters. Then, for each year after that, you can bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup.

This doggo is prone to getting some health issues, such as:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Degenerative Myelopathy
  • Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD)
  • Patellar Luxation
  • Dry Skin
  • Cataracts
  • Lens Luxation
  • Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)
  • Persistent Pupillary Membranes (PPM)

This mixed breed has an average lifespan of about 12 to 14 years with proper care.

Diet

With your vet’s approval, you can provide high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food. However, you also want to ensure that it’s appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism. 

Grooming

This doggo requires regular grooming. You can bring them to a professional grooming salon about once every three to four months. Also, they do shed a lot, so you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a day.

In addition, remember to keep up with trimming their nails, cleaning their ears, and brushing their teeth regularly.
