Do you like the idea of owning a German Shepherd puppy that never grows up? It is hard to debate how cute the little fluff balls are, and now you can own one for its entire life span with the introduction of the Corman shepherd. A designer breed that is a mix between a German Shepherd and a corgi, these fun pops capture all of the best traits in both breeds and bring the shepherd down to a small dog level.

The adorable breed goes by several different names, including:

  • Corman Shepherd
  • Corgi German Shepherd
  • German Corgi

Corman Shepherds are small dogs that are well-suited to family life just as well as they are to live in a condo or apartment. However, they retain the protective qualities of their German Shepherd counterparts and, if not properly socialized, can be territorial and overprotective. Therefore proper training is required to tame aggressive qualities and turn these cuddle balls into a best friend you can take easily to the dog park or around the neighborhood.

Due to the massive differences between both breeds, there can be a wide variation between the size and appearance of Corman Shepherds, depending on the breeder you choose. Here a few common specifications to guide your expectations around:

  • Height = 12-17 inches
  • Weigh = 20-70 pounds
  • Hair = short but dense
  • Moderate grooming
  • Lifespan = 12 to 15 years

If you are looking for a great family dog that doubles as a guard dog who will devote itself to your family, the Corman Shepherd should be on your list.
