My new pup, Dora, is a rescued corgi mix. We were trying to guess what she may be mixed with, and I think I've settled on a corgi/dachshund mix (or a "Dorgi," as Queen Elizabeth coined them). It explains the digging, which isnt a corgi trait. Her snout is longer and thinner than a corgi, and her face has the elastic, almost wrinkled but not quite appearance of a dachshund. Her ears are all corgi, and her coloring, but it doesn't explain the way she holds her tail over her back, and her legs, though dwarfed, seem slightly long for either breed. And her size is spot on for a corgi, the vet estimates her weight at maturity will be 25-30 lbs. Anyone else have a good guess?
according to the rep that came to my work and explained it all, vets are charging anywhere from 125-190 to have the test run. IMO, it isn't worth the money to me to find out, but for those that need to know .......
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
Some Basenji traits that all of them seem to have:
1) Clean themselves, kinda like a cat does. 2) Hate getting wet. 3) Roll around frantically in smelly stuff (whether good smelling or bad). 4) Tear up paper products, especially dryer sheets, tissues, paper towels. 5) Can bark, but don't. Usually very quiet. 6) Don't like to fetch. 7) Aren't real interested in toys. 8) Very, very curious. Have to sniff, sniff, sniff anything and everything new to them. 9) Sunny spot seekers. 10) A lot of them have umbilical hernias. 11) Shed very little most of the year. Shed a lot for a few weeks in late winter. 12) Have no doggy smell no matter how dirty they are, even when wet. 13) Seem possessed by the devil a majority of the time regardless of their age. (LOL!)
