    Question What Am I? Pom/Corgi or Pom/Sheltie, or Pom/Other?

    Jojo's from a Pomeranian Rescue group. They did a wonderful job rehabilitating him from his terrified former self. We have our suspicions that he's either a Pom/Corgi or a Pom/Sheltie, but are open to other ideas.

    He is a noisy little guy, with all sorts of snorts, grumbles, whines, and snarfs. He also loves to chase horses. High food drive, low retrieving drive, and not a fan of big strange dogs.

    Any ideas to what he might be?







    Thanks for looking!

    Wow, he is adorable!!! Hmmm... I'm terrible at breed guessing. I mean, I for sure see the Pom. I don't really see Corgi, tbh. I can maybe see the Pom/Sheltie thing.

    To me, I DO see corgi, and the noises and herding instinct back that up. Corgis are known "conversationalists" with MANY noises that they make. Here is my girl, and I can see some of her in your pretty dog:

    100% adorable is what he is!!!!!! After looking at Badgermom's photos I agree there is some corgi in there. In the second photo he reminds me a lot of my friends shelties (the fur and the tail). But like I said, he is 100% adorable, what a good looking dog!

    Border Collie and Greyhound so we have been told!

    I probably agree with everyone else and would say Pom/corgi mix. I'm not very good at guesses.

    On a side note, I loved the 'sounds' video! What a cutie! Lol.

    He actually reminds me of a fluffy corgi owned by another member here. So I totally see Corgi. I would also agree with the Pom/Corgi mix suggestions!

    I see sheltie. I would expect a corgi pom mix to have stiff erect ears but this dogs ears tip. the coat is also reminisant of a sheltie

    Thanks for your responses!!! Badgersmom, omg, your girl is SO awesome. I think I would end up talking to her all day just to hear those noises. Jojo does more whiny-type noises. I have not heard anything like your girl's wonderful sounds at all. Perhaps he's part Sheltie after all, though your girl's smile looks SO much like Jojo's.

    Keechak--good point about the ears! His ears flop up and down slightly when he moves.

    I agree with the shelti corgi as well.
    I had a shelti/pekingese mix which everyone thought was part pom.
    The coat to me looks shelti.

    It's not uncommon for Corgis to have floppy ears sometimes, though, right? Especially in non-show corgis.

    I've never personally seen a floppy eared corgi I've seen a few corgi mixes and a lot of purebreds and all had erect ears. I'm sure floppy ears are possible just like in the GSD tho highly uncommon.

    I think pom/sheltie his coat looks very much like a sheltie. Its possible he's just a hienz 57 with a bunch of mixes. Either way he's really cute!

    One joy shatters a hundred griefs
