The Aussie Corgi is a small dog, and when mature they reach 10 to 13 inches in height and weigh from 20 to 30 pounds.
Due to their parents' herding backgrounds on relatively isolated ranches and farms, your Aussie Corgi will be a hard-working, energetic and playful dog that will want to always accompany you. He is great with kids, but you should teach your children to be careful when they play with him (especially if he is on the smaller side!). He works well with other pets, but is very intelligent and can be headstrong; early training and socialization is a must. Likewise, he will have quite a bit of energy and require a lot of daily exercise to keep him from developing bad habits like chewing on things.
Aussie Corgis tend to have relatively long hair and shed a lot too, and as such they need to be brushed daily and have their ears checked a few times a week — as well as gently cleaned at least weekly. They should only be bathed when necessary so as to not destroy the natural oils of their coat.
The Aussie Corgi comes in a fair amount of bi-color coats: black and white, black and brown, white and brown, gray with black and white, and a few other combinations including merle and brindle; she may even have spots! If kept healthy and happy, she should live anywhere from 12 to 15 years.
