These stumpy-legged pawsters seem to be so near perfect that even genetics don't want to hide their corgi-esque traits when crossing them with other dog breeds.
Corgis, the forever favorite dog breed of Queen Elizabeth II herself, became internet stars with one shake of their bootylicious butts. People spend hours scrolling through Corgi content on social media as their fluffy, unbearably cute, and heartwarming faces never fail to serve as a pick-me-up when life knocks one down. Moreover, with a reputation as one of the smartest dog breeds — which makes them highly trainable — and of being very affectionate towards their owner and family, the stumpy-legged pawsters have proved that there's more to them than charming smiles and butt wiggles.
In fact, they seem to be so near perfect that even genetic selection doesn't want to hide their corgi-esque traits when crossing them with other dog breeds. This highly amusing fact was recently pointed out by Twitter user @soapachu, who compiled a thread of corgi-mixed breeds that somehow look like corgis in different dog suits. "Your regular reminder that a corgi crossed with any other breed just ends up looking like a corgi disguised as the other dog," the user wrote, kicking off things with a stumpy-legged dalmatian who does in fact look like someone painted a corgi white and sprinkled black spots over it.

Speaking to Express about corgis being one of the most sought after dog breeds, Rachel — a founder of the UKDogsofInsta page on Instagram — explained that their popularity on the internet has fueled the breed's renaissance in real life. "People cannot get enough of dogs' pictures on Instagram. People are hugely influenced by what they see online and it is no surprise that some of the dogs that are most popular on Instagram are impacting on the popularity of dog breeds in real life. This is great news for the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, which is a breed that has long been struggling to get noticed in the UK, but at the same time it is important that people buy the right breed for them, so that the dog has a loving home for life."
Bearing that very important message in mind, here are 22 corgi-mixed breeds who are impossibly cute:
