Horgi

INTRODUCTION

The Horgi is a mongrel dog, a cross between the Siberian Husky and Corgi breeds of dog. Small, playful and full of energy, these puppies have inherited some of the best qualities of both their parents. Despite their unfortunate designer breed status, you can find these mixed-breed dogs in shelters and breed-specific rescues, so remember to adopt. These adorable puppies are a great addition for individuals and families who enjoy the outdoors. They have lots of energy and would thrive in an active home with a safe yard. If you like to walk and want a companion to go with you, this could be your new best friend. They have a pack dog heritage and would do well in multi-dog households. Read on to find out if the Horgi is the right dog for you.

The main colours of Horgis are black, cream, red, sable and fawn, and their coat is usually a mixture of two or more colours. Horgis have an affinity for children, but because of their herding instincts, they sometimes get itchy feet or ankles. Horgis are very energetic and enjoy walks and hikes. They are very alert but not aggressive or territorial. These puppies make excellent companion dogs for active people.

HISTORY

The Horgi dog breed may have existed naturally over the years, but designer breeders began intentionally mixing Corgis and Huskies in the late 1990’s, probably in North America, and breeders wanted to blend the two parent breeds to create a miniature Husky, a small herding dog. They quickly became a favourite companion puppy. Breeders continued to create Horgis as the demand for mixed breed puppies increased. Although the Horgi breed began as a designer breed, some have ended up in shelters or in the care of rescue groups. If you decide this is the breed for you, consider adoption. Check local shelters, look for Horgi rescues or consult breed-specific Corgi and Husky rescues, as they sometimes help rehome mixed-breed puppies.
