Auggie Characteristics

The Auggie is a somewhat uncommon hybrid breed between an Australian Shepherd and a Corgi. Both of these breeds are incredibly popular for the way they look and combined, they make an adorable pup. Energetic and playful, Auggies make fantastic herding dogs for the farm as well as loving family companions. Make sure to provide proper obedience training and early socialization to ensure a manageable and well-adjusted Auggie.

Fast Facts

  • Energy High
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Accommodating

A mixed-breed of many names, you may also see the Auggie referred to as an Augi, Auggi, Augie, or Aussi-Corgi. They tend to play well with other animals and people of all ages (assuming they can get enough attention!). They have a strong internal desire to herd, so nurturing that instinct or substituting it for agility training is the best way to ensure a happy and well-behaved Auggie.  
 
Standing around 10-13 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 20-30 pounds, the Auggie takes its short stature from the Corgi half of the family. Don't be fooled by the Auggie's size, however. These dogs don’t always love the apartment lifestyle due to their frequent barking, heavy shedding, and abundance of energy. An hour of vigorous exercise every day will keep them mentally stimulated, happy, and less likely to make escape attempts!
 
Like many smaller dogs, Auggies may experience some dental issues because ofo their smaller skulls and jaws. Teeth can become overcrowded, making them harder to clean. Just be sure to take them to the vet regularly and keep them clean and healthy.
 

How dog-friendly is Alabama?

Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon! 

 

Here’s what you should know about Alabama.

 

Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.

 

Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.

Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?

Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.

Birmingham

Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama

BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.

 

Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%. 

 

What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama

Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period. 

Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
