The Corgi Inu is a Japanese dog breed that is a cross between the Welsh Corgi and the Shiba Inu. The breed was created in the early 2000s in an attempt to create a hypoallergenic dog that would still have the personality and appearance of the Shiba Inu. The Corgi Inu is not recognized as a breed by any major kennel club, but it is recognized by the Japan Kennel Club.

The Corgi Inu was created by crossing a Welsh Corgi with a Shiba Inu. The resulting puppies were then crossed with each other to create the desired traits. The Corgi Inu is considered to be a designer breed, as it was created specifically for its unique combination of traits.

The Corgi Inu is a small dog, with males standing at around 12 inches tall and females at around 11 inches tall. They typically weigh between 15 and 25 pounds. The Corgi Inu has a short, thick coat that can be either straight or wavy. The coat is typically red, black, or tan in color, with white markings on the chest and feet.

The Corgi Inu is an intelligent breed that is easy to train. They are also known for being very loyal and affectionate dogs. However, they can also be stubborn and independent at times. Due to their small size, they are not well suited for homes with small children or other pets.

The Corgi Inu was originally bred in Japan, but it has since become popular in other parts of Asia and North America. The breed is still relatively rare, but its popularity seems to be growing steadily.
