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.
