The Siborgi, also known as the Horgi, is a designer mixed dog breed made up of the Siberian Husky and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. The traits of this breed will be a combination of both dog breeds in the cross and can be more thoroughly explored by visiting the related breed pages.

The Siborgi will be a good family dog with the proper training. They are intelligent, spunky, and will love to please their owners. The overall temperament of this dog will also be directly related to the amount of early socialization they have with other animals, children, and people.

Although very intelligent on both sides of this cross, it is recommended owners without knowledge of dog training seek obedience training. A novice owner may have some difficulty.

While designer mixed breeds are less likely to experience health issues than purebreds, there are still some breed-specific illnesses to be aware of. Some of these include:

  • Epilepsy
  • Eye Disorders
  • Hip and elbow issues

The likelihood of these illnesses can be minimized with genetic testing on the mother and father.

The Siberian Husky is a heavy shedder, as is the Corgi. This is a breed that should be brushed daily and groomed regularly, especially as the seasons change.

The Husky is the definition of high energy and the Corgi is no slouch either. The Corgi is a member of the AKC herding group, so while they may be a bit more mellow than the Husky, they can turn it up a notch when they are so inclined.

Weight: Between 20 and 50 pounds

Height: Between 13 and 16 inches

A Siborgi/Horgi should live between 12 and 15 years
