The Auggie is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Australian Shepherd and Corgi, and typically, the Miniature Australian Shepherd and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Friendly, energetic, and playful, these mixed breed herding dogs make great companions for the whole family. Auggie is sometimes spelled as Augi, Auggi, or Augie, and sometimes they’re known as Aussie-Corgi. Despite their unfortunate status as a “designer dog,” you can find Auggies at general dog shelters or breed-specific shelters. These affectionate, curious, frisky pups would do best with a family who can give them both the attention and the play they crave. They do very well with people of all ages, as well as other pets, so they’d fit right in with most families or even single owners as long as they get enough attention. Apartments would be more challenging homes for them, because of their high energy level, so a house with a backyard would be a better fit. Although their truest sense of purpose is to herd, Auggies are also wonderful companion dogs and quick to alert of any danger or change in environment.
