The Corgipoo is an active, joyful and loyal family dog. This affectionate breed can be highly excitable and are always eager to please their owners. They have a natural herding instinct and will try to keep everything that moves in a group.
Health concerns to watch for in the Westiepoo are:
• Hip Dysplasia
• PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy)
Their coats can be curly & non-shedding, similar to the Poodle. They can also be short, dense & sometimes harsh in texture.
Daily brushing is required in this designer breed. Clipping every 6 – 8 weeks will also help maintain a healthy coat. As their fine hair grows out longer, it is more prone to collect dirt & dead hair causing knotting & matting.
