The Dorgi is a cross between a Dachshund and a Corgi. Their appearance may vary slightly depending on which of their parents they take after more, but Dorgis tend to be social, friendly, energetic, intelligent, and loving dogs that make a great family pet. Although their precise origins are unknown, we do have a few “origin stories” about the Dorgi.
Queen Elizabeth II is one of the most prominent Corgi supporters, but did you know Her Royal Highness is also fond of Dorgis? As the story goes, one of the Queen’s Corgis mated with Princess Margaret’s Dachshund, and a littler of Dorgis was born. After that, more Dorgis were bred and the designer breed started to catch on across the world.
Although they are not recognized by the American Kennel Club, they are recognized by other notable dog organizations. The Designer Breed Registry, American Canine Hybrid Club, Designer Dogs Kennel Club, and more all recognize the Dorgi.
