About the Dorgi
The Dorgi is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Dachshund and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Dorgi is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.
