Corgi French Bulldog Mix History

All hybrid or designer dogs are tough to get a good read on as there isn’t much history to them. Breeding specific dogs like this has become common in the last twenty years or so even though I am sure that this mixed breed found it’s share of dogs to the shelter due to accidental breeding. We will take a closer look at the history of both parent breeds below.  If you are looking at breeders for new, designer dogs please beware of Puppy Mills. These are places that mass produce puppies, specifically for profit and don’t care at all about the dogs. Please sign our petition to stop puppy mills.

French Bulldog History:

The French Bulldog also known as the Frenchie is a small breed of domestic dog. It was originally bred to be a toy version of the Bulldog. This smaller breed was rather popular among lace workers in the city of Nottingham. When these factory workers emigrated to France for more opportunities, of course they brought their little bulldogs with them. Frenchies were the result in the 1800s of a cross between bulldog ancestors imported from England and local ratters in Paris. This is how they came to be.

Corgi History:

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi -Welsh for "dwarf dog" is a cattle herding breed which originated in Pembrokeshire, Wales. It is one of two breeds known as a Welsh Corgi. The other is the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, and both descend from the line that is the northern spitz-type dog. An example of a spitz breed is the Siberian Husky. Another theory is that Pembrokes are descended from the Swedish Vallhunds, which were crossed with the local Welsh herding dogs. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is the younger of the two Corgi breeds and is a separate and distinct breed from the Cardigan.The corgi is one of the smallest dogs in the Herding Group. It is said that  Queen Elizabeth II has owned more than 30 during her reign and are her preferred breed. These dogs have been favored by British royalty for more than seventy years, but among British Commoners, have recently fallen into decline in terms of popularity and demand.

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi can be traced as far back as 1107 AD. The story goes that the Vikings and Flemish weavers brought the dogs with them as they traveled to settle in Wales. Going back as far as the 10th century, corgis were herding sheep, geese, ducks, horses, and cattle. They are known as one of the oldest herding breed of dogs.

Pembroke Welsh Corgis are becoming more popular in the United States and rank 20th (24th) in American Kennel Club registrations, as of 2015 . However, corgis are now listed as a "vulnerable" breed in the United Kingdom; the decline has been said to be due to a 2007 ban on tail-docking (the practice of cutting off the animal’s tail) in the U.K., as well as the lack of breeders in the U.K.

Corgi French Bulldog Mix Personality

This is an easy to love and extremely friendly dog. This should make a very friendly, family oriented dog. Both of these dogs are smaller, friendly, but can be feisty. Watch out, because if the Corgi shines through, you might end up being herded all around the house. Just because they are small doesn’t mean they don’t want to be in charge. They should get along well with other animals if exposed and socialized properly as well. They are somewhat capable of independence, or alone time when the house is noisy or full. She responds well to positive reinforcement, like all dogs. She should be an affectionate and enjoy spending lots of time with you.



Corgi French Bulldog Mix Health

All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems as all breeds are susceptible to some things more than others. However, the one positive thing about getting a puppy is that you can avoid this as much as possible. A breeder should absolutely offer a health guarantee on puppies. If they won’t do this, then look no more and don’t consider that breeder at all. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about health problems in the breed and the incidence with which they occur. Health clearances prove that a dog has been tested for and cleared of a particular condition.

The French Bulldog Corgi Mix might be prone to Eye problems, patellar luxation, Hereditary deafness, Eye problems, Urolithiasis, Reverse sneezing, brachycephalic syndrome, head shakes, hip dysplasia, skin problems, tail problems,

Note that these are just common problems in both breeds.



Corgi French Bulldog Mix Care

What are the grooming requirements?

They will be a pretty easy keeper in this department. The Corgi is a more aggressive shedder than Frenchie though. However, just because the hair is short doesn’t mean they won’t shed like crazy. They might have hair blowing all over the place. Give them baths as needed, but not so much that you dry out their skin.

What are the exercise requirements?

This is a moderate energy dog that will need that from an owner. However, by very careful with it overheating too much. They really don’t need a whole lot of strenuous exercise. A tired dog is a good dog though. Never tie your dog up outside - that is inhumane and not fair to him.

What are the training requirements?

Though intelligent, it might be stubborn and demanding. It will need a strong, firm handler that is consistent and won’t let this dog take advantage of them. All dogs respond best to positive reinforcement. So make sure to praise her when she does well. She is an intelligent dog who loves to please, and loves a physical challenge. The more exercise she gets the easier she will be to train. Proper socialization is imperative to all dogs and puppies. Make sure to take her to the park and doggy day care to get her around as many people and dogs as possible.



Corgi French Bulldog Mix Feeding

A lot of times diet is done on a per-dog basis. Each one is unique and has different dietary requirements. Most dogs in the U.S. are overweight. A mix like this one that is prone to hip and elbow dysplasia should really be on fish oil and glucosamine and chondroitin supplements as soon as possible.

Overfeeding any dog is not a good idea as that can really exacerbate health problems such as elbow and hip dysplasia.

A good diet to look into is Raw Food Diet. A raw food diet will be especially good for the Wolf background.
