Like most other dog breeds, the Husky Corgi Mix has some health problems that are commonly associated with the breed. These include:
Von Willebrand Disease
This is a genetic disease caused by the lack of a clotting protein known as Von Willebrand Factor (VWF). The disease makes it difficult for blood to clot, which can lead to excessive bleeding even from very small cuts and bruises.
This disease is very common in Corgis, and can be easily passed on to your Corgsky by their Corgi parent. Fortunately, being a genetic disease, you can have your breeder certify whether your Corgsky’s parents had the disease.
Horgi love to eat a lot, and if not properly watched, they can easily get obese. However, this is something you can easily prevent by watching portion sizes and making sure that your canine buddy is getting enough exercise.
Since husky corgi mixes have short legs and a long back, they are very vulnerable to spinal problems, especially if your furry friend is a bit on the overweight side. These problems can result in a lot of pain for your doggie, and in extreme cases, they can lead to coordination problems and difficulty in standing.
Horgis also sometimes suffer from hip dysplasia, a condition characterized by a slipped hip joint that makes it difficult for your canine buddy to move.
Lifespan Of A Husky Corgi Mix
Both Huskies and Corgis have a long lifespan of about 12 – 15 years, and therefore, you can expect that your husky corgi mix will also have a similar lifespan.
