A Brief History of the Royal Dorgis

Friday, November 29, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

This breed is not a pure bred and was introduced by Queen Elizabeth. It happened when one of her corgis mated with Princess Margaret’s Dachshund.  The Queen is not a pure bred snob but she does know that mixed breeds are generally healthier than pure breds.  About half of the Queen’s dogs are Dorgis, a mix between the Dachshund and the Corgis. The Dorgis did not come about by accident. The Queen went out of her way to breed these dogs. Dachshunds have back problems which could not be controlled by pet medication and commonly end up in wheel chairs. Many are put down because of back problems. If you could have a dog that looked and acted  mostly like a Dachshund (and may even be better behaved) and could be assured that you would not have to go through the heartbreak of having to put it down because of back trouble, wouldn’t you prefer a Dorgis?  The Queen showed us that we have a choice. If mixed breed dogs are good enough for the Queen, are they good enough for you? I know that I would rather have a healthier dog even if it means having a mixed breed.
