What Is A Corgle Dog?

The Corgle is what happens when you breed a purebred Corgi with a purebred Beagle.

The Corgi parent may be either a Cardigan Welsh Corgi or a a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

You’ll find that Corgle dogs have characteristics of both breeds present, all in one cute little package.

What Does A Corgle Dog Look Like?

As with any crossbreed, you end up with features from both breeds as a possibilty.

Most often, a Corgle has the body of a Corgi with the head of Beagle.

This means you get those cute, little stumpy legs and long body with a head that has those long, droopy ears that most people associate with a Beagle.

Though sometimes, you end up with the head of a Beagle and the short, perky little ears of a Corgi on a Corgle dog.

Sometimes a Corgle has a short tail, and sometimes it has a long tail.

As you look at Corgles, you will notice that some of these dogs look more like a Corgi and some look more like a Beagle.

While others seem to be a perfect mixture of the two breeds.

A Corgle’s coat tends to be short to medium in length, and it may be single layered or double layered.

A double layered coat is most commonly seen in a Corgle.

Coloring varies amongst Corgles with all the colors of Beagles and Corgis a possibility.

This includes:

  • black
  • tan
  • white
  • black and tan
  • sable
  • red
  • fawn
  • brindle
  • blue merle

A Corgle’s coat is often dense and a bit rough to the touch.

How Often Should You Brush A Corgle?

You should expect your Corgle to seasonally shed its coat.

With that in mind, you need to brush a Corgle 2 times to 3 times each week.

The coat will be smooth and short, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to keep up with.

Corgle Size

One question most people have about the Corgle mixed breed is – How big does a Corgle get?

On average, a Corgle dog will range between 10 inches and 15 inches in height.

A full-grown Corgle will weight anywhere between 20 pounds and 40 pounds.

If the Corgi parent is a Cardigan Welsh Corgi, then expect your Corgle to weigh closer to the 40 pounds.

But if the Corgi parent is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, then expect your Corgle to weigh closer to the 20 pounds.

Corgle Temperament

Corgles make great family pets as they tend to be affectionate, friendly, intelligent and energetic.

If there is too much Corgi in your Corgle, then expect training to be a challenge as the dog will be a bit stubborn.

If there is too much Beagle in your Corgle, then expect your dog to get easily distracted by scents.

Corgles do get a long well with other dogs, but they do not always get along with cats.
