These dogs are fairly independent dogs similar to greyhounds and the main purpose of breeding these dogs is for them to become good companions, as well as watchdogs.

They also have no problem living with other animals however, it should be noted that the introductions and interactions of other animals with these breeds of dogs should be done slowly and with adequate patience.

How long does a Corgidor live?

The greatest threat which any domesticated dog faces is the risk of injuries, diseases, and other health problems. Moreover, the Corgidor is an extremely enthusiastic dog so it runs a greater chance of getting injured while playing out in the wild. However, these dogs are quite sturdy and are an extremely healthy breed so they have a comparatively longer lifespan than many others. These dogs have an average lifespan of around 10-13 years approximately.

How do they reproduce?

Corgidors are designer dogs that are a Lab-Corgi mix. Thus these dogs are bred under the supervision of expert breeders. However, if someone wants to breed these dogs at home, certain important information should be kept in mind. Like most dogs, these dogs take a bit of time to mature so ideally the best time to breed them is after their second or third heat cycle. No dog should undergo two consecutive heat cycles and each dog can be bred a maximum of three times. Before breeding, the dogs should be checked thoroughly by a doctor. The average length of a female dog's estrus cycle ranges from 21-30 days. Normally the gestation period lasts for 65 days, during which plenty of attention should be paid to the health of the mother dog.

Since this dog species is common and is found all over the globe, its population has no threats of being endangered or extinct. Moreover, owing to numerous breeding centers and an abundance of the two parent breeds, breeding this species is relatively easy. Therefore the population of the Corgidor is currently extremely stable.

How cute are they?

These Lab Corgi mix dogs are extremely adorable. Their appearance is just like a Labrador Retriever but with extremely short legs! They are so cute that you might just end up cuddling with them whenever you happen to see one of them. Their temperament and their behavioral traits also make the Corgidor an extremely adorable and cute dog. As they are friendly dogs, they make extremely good watchdogs and family dogs just like German Shepradors. These highly energetic dogs need daily exercise and thus are relatively easy to train. All these delightful traits make the Corgidor an extremely desirable and cute dog.

How do they communicate?

All dogs are known to communicate using body language as well as vocal barking techniques and the Corgidor is no exception to these means of communication. A few examples of this dog's body language that can help determine its current state of emotions are seen in its ears. If the dog's eyes are blinking and its ears are relaxed, the dog is relaxed and is not worried about any danger. If the dog is on its back and is seen rolling on the floor that usually means that the dog is trying to get your attention. However, if the dog is standing upright with its ears pointed straight, it may mean that the dog is alert or suspicious of something in its immediate environment. The position of the dog's tail also depicts a lot about the dog. If the dog is seen waving its tail freely that means that the dog is happy, however, if it has its tail in between its legs then it means that the dog is sad or scared of something. As for loud barking or short growls, dogs use these to communicate with both other dogs as well as human beings. If the barking is soft and chirpy that means it is a happy bark. Short growls refer to the fact the dog is angry while whimpering refers to the fact that the dog is afraid.

How big is a Corgidor?

Since the Corgidor is a mixed breed of two pure-dog breeds, the Labrador Retriever and a Cardigan Welsh Corgi or a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, of different sizes, it is extremely difficult to assume the exact height of this offspring. The Labrador Retriever is a large-sized dog while the Corgi is a small-sized dog, thus it becomes difficult to assume which dominant traits the offspring will inherit. Overall, Corgidors are considered average-sized dogs and they have an average size of around 12-23 in (30.5-58.4 cm) in length, similar to a dalmatian. Males of this breed are generally a bit larger in size than their female counterparts. Since the height of an average-sized dog lies in the range of 8-27 in (20.3-68.5), the Corgidor can be safely assumed to be a short to medium-sized dog.  

How fast can a Corgidor run?

There is very limited data on the speed of the Corgidor. However, we can take a guess at their speed by comparing their parent breeds. Since the Corgidor is a mixed breed between a Corgi and a Labrador, it is likely to inherit both the running qualities of the parents. Though the Corgidor has an elongated body, they have very small legs which makes them relatively slow running dogs. The parents (the Labrador Retriever and the Corgi) are good runners with the Labrador Retriever achieving a top running speed of around 35 mph (56.3 kph) and the latter around 25 mph (40.2 kph). So we can assume that the speed of the Corgidor will be in a range in between both of its parents.

How much does a Corgidor weigh?

Corgidors are medium-sized dogs and their weight lies in the range of 40-55 lb or (18.1-25 kg) approximately. Since the males of this breed are relatively larger than females, the weight of males is also greater than that of females. Since medium-sized dogs have an average weight range of around 30-70 lb (13.6-32 kg), we can estimate that the Corgidor is a medium-sized dog.

What are the male and female names of the species?

Similar to all other dog breeds male Corgidors are called 'dogs' and females are called 'bitches'.

What would you call a baby Corgidor?

All baby dogs are known as 'pups' or 'puppies'. So, the babies of Corgidors are also known as Corgidor puppies.

What do they eat?

The appropriate quantity of food that should be given to this dog is dependent on a number of factors. First of all, the things that matter the most are the size of the dog and its behavioral traits. Since Corgidors are medium-sized dogs that have very high energy levels, these dogs must be fed accordingly to give them enough energy for the day. These dogs should be fed high-quality dog food. The food habits of dogs also tend to change slowly with their growth over the passage of time. Since these are highly energetic dogs, they have a high tendency of overeating and thus risk becoming obese. Owners should keep this fact in mind and feed their dog accordingly. The best option is always to consult a vet to create a tailor-made diet chart for your pet. Dogs should always be feed with a balanced diet that has sufficient protein, carbohydrates, and fiber content. These dogs have a moderate prey drive, so if a Corgidor is left in a forest or a field, there is a high chance that they might hunt for a few small animals or birds.

Are they slobbery?

The Corgidor is a breed of dog that doesn't drool too much. Owners of Corgidors shouldn't be too worried about slobbery dogs!

Would they make a good pet?

Yes, Corgidors make excellent pets. They are an extremely intelligent breed of dog and get accustomed to their owners and their surroundings very easily. They also make very good watchdogs. They don't bark too much either, and they are extremely lovable dogs. They are said to have inherited all the best qualities of their parents (the Labrador Retriever and Corgi) and thus depict both their characteristics. They are known to be friendly with strangers, however, if ever they feel that their owners or loved ones are in any danger, they won't think twice before defending their loved ones. These dogs are active, so they require lots of exercise and regular walks every day. Owing to their high energy they require relatively large apartments to live in. They make great family pets as they don't bark too much.

Did you know...

Though the Corgidor is bred from two different purebred dogs, these dogs are not accepted by the prestigious American Kennel Club (also known as the AKC). However, this adorable species of dogs have been accepted by the Dog Registry of America (DRA.)

Characteristics and health issues

Corgidors are highly energetic dogs and they lead an active lifestyle. Owing to their energetic nature, they are easily prone to injuries and health problems. However, if your dog is kept under the proper care of a vet with regular health check-ups, you need not worry too much about your pet. However, like all dogs, with age, Corgidors can develop health issues and diseases like obesity, eye problems, ear infections, joint dysplasia, and hip dysplasia.

What are corgis famous for?
