Dorgi

Dorgi

INTRODUCTION

The Dorgi is a mixed breed dog, a cross between the Dachshund and Corgi dog breeds. Loyal, friendly and intelligent, these puppies inherit some of the best qualities of their two parents. You can find these mixed breed dogs in breed-specific shelters and rescues, so remember to always adopt. Dorgis make excellent companion animals, and their adorable and unique appearance makes them eye-catching walking companions. This tiny breed is affectionate and loyal and loves to be around small children. Be careful though: They are energetic dogs, so you will need to commit to adequate levels of exercise or live in a space with access to the outdoors.

HIGHLIGHTS

The Dorgi is a mixed breed dog. Common colours of the Dorgi include brown, black, chocolate, red and white. The Dorgi’s coat is of medium length and is often described as dense and slightly fibrous. Queen Elizabeth II of England is a great admirer of the Dorgi. They get on well with children with early socialisation, but both dogs and children should always be supervised and taught to play gently with each other.

HISTORY

The exact heritage of the Dorgi is a little unclear, although Queen Elizabeth II of England is on record as being a great fan of this dog. As far as the two parent breeds are concerned, there is a lot of history: in the case of the Dachshund, this breed dates back to the 16th century, when it was bred in Germany and used to hunt small game. At one time, the Dachshund was even called a badger dog. The Corgi hails from the UK, where the breed is reputed to be a favourite in royal circles. The Dorgi has become known as a designer dog breed, but many of them unfortunately end up in shelters. So consider contacting local rescue groups and shelters if you are thinking of adding the Dorgi to your home.
