A small to medium sized cross between the Siberian Husky and the Corgi, the Horgi is a cute looking designer breed mostly inheriting the Husky’s appearance and Corgi’s body stature. A round head, almond-shaped eyes, well-set erect ears, and short legs characterize it further. A well-tempered, intelligent breed, giving it proper training would indeed groom it into a perfect house pet.

Good natured, friendly, loyal, eager-to-please and fun loving just like both its parents, the Siborgi makes for a perfect companion.
Besides their affectionate nature, they have a profound sense of alertness, intimating the owner by letting out a bark whenever he spots an intruder into his territory. However, he still does not qualify to be a good guard dog since he would not take much time to get friendly with strangers just as the Husky.
Like their parents they too would get along well with children, gradually emerging as their perfect playmate and companion.
However, their relationships with other dogs could be a little unpredictable, and proper socialization is needed before introducing your Horgi with them.
Siberian Huskies are famed for their high prey drive, while the Corgis have a strong chasing instinct too because of their herding origin. Hence, it is quite likely for your Siborgi to go after cats or other smaller animals, if not taught to peacefully coexist with them.
Because of its eager-to-please nature, training the Corgi and Husky mix would indeed be an easy task, though a firm taskmaster is required.
Giving your Corgi Husky mix good quality dog food is a must to keep them physically and mentally fit. However, they tend to get obese, so you must be extra cautious before pampering them with treats.
