The Australian Shepherd Corgi Mix is an adorable pup with pointed, triangular ears. These fur babies can have either blue or brown eyes and in some cases a combination of both.
Its parent breed, the Australian Shepherd, is a sturdy herding breed with an athletic muscular body while its other parent, the Corgi is a stocky breed with short legs.
When you cross these two breeds, the resulting Auggie will have these aforementioned physical characteristics. Despite their medium-sized stature, Auggies are well-built muscular dogs owing to their herding ancestry.
However, in cases where the Auggie is a cross between a Miniature Australian Shepherd and a Corgi, you can expect your Auggie to be much smaller in stature.
Despite their small frame, Australian Shepherd Corgis are energetic dogs that need plenty of room and daily exercise. This means that they may not be the best option if you live in an apartment or have a sedentary lifestyle.
Coat Colors And Patterns
Auggies inherit the beautiful double coat of the Aussie and will typically have thick medium to long double coats. Most Australian Shepherd Corgi will be bi- or tri-color and the most common shades for this breed are white, black, tan, brown, or merle.
While the beautiful double coat of Auggies adds to the breed’s cute and cuddly factor, it also means a lot of shedding since the Australian Shepherd Corgi is not hypoallergenic.
