The Welsh Corgi and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier are renowned for being two of the friendliest dogs on the planet. Both dogs are exceptionally loyal, intelligent, and devoted to their human families.
In particular, the Staffy is a fantastic dog to have around children; however, Corgis can be more unpredictable around young children because of their propensity for herding and nipping at children’s heels.
There has been an upsurge in breeders crossing various breeds with the Staffy; it’s becoming more prevalent. Another popular mix is the Staffy X Labrador, two hugely popular dogs. So I expect to see more breeders crossing Staffies with a range of dogs.

Staffy Corgi Mix Characteristics
Fawn coat colours and resemblance to at least one of the parents will be evident in the hybrid puppy’s appearance. A long muzzle is also a strong possibility. Still, the Staffy X Corgi’s head will be narrower than the Staffy’s.
The Corgi’s ears are triangular and stand upright, evenly spaced on top of the head. In contrast, the Staffy’s ears are widely spaced almost on the side of the head and half folded. Because the ears are such a powerful genetic feature, it’s highly likely puppies will inherit ears that closely resemble the Corgi.
Staffies don’t have a high shedding coat. However, Corgis shed a lot all year round. You would expect a litter to have a mixture of coat types and textures. However, the hybrids will typically shed more than the Staffy.
Staffordshire Bull Terrier Corgi Mix Temperament
The Staffy X Corgi is known for their high energy levels and playful demeanour. You might need to keep a close eye on your puppy because they are highly inquisitive and can quickly get into trouble.
With attention-seeking parents, you would expect the puppies also to be craving human companionship. Of course, this adoration for their human family might mean a separation anxiety issue.
Early socializing will pay dividends long-term, and you should also consider early training classes. The Staffy cross Corgi is a very trainable dog but can have a stubborn streak.
Suppose you decide to do most of the training yourself. In that case, we advise positive reinforcement because this is kinder to the puppy and ultimately makes the Staffy X Corgi much better behaved, and less anxious.
