Welsh Corgi and Miniature Poodle Mix

Expertise:Chasing squirrels, Herding Cats, Swimming


My name is Minnie and I am a Welsh Corgi and Miniature Poodle Mix (Corgi-Poo). My nicknames are Min and Min Min. I love playing outside with my ball, going for off-leach forest runs, chasing squirrels away from the bird feeders and swimming in the river. You can find me most days sleeping on my sheep pillow with my Mom while she works from home. I am very affectionate, cheerful and eager to learn.

Corgi’s were originally bread for herding cattle. Since I don’t have any cows around I like to herd my big cat sisters around the house. Corgi is welsh for “dwarf dog”. I am surprisingly heavy for my short stature weighing in at around 30 lbs and super fast. I love to run through the forest, house and backyard.

I love joining everyone via Instagram Live Sessions and I am looking forward to obedience training in January 2021 in preparation for becoming a Carleton Therapy Dog.

When I’m not working on campus, you can follow my adventures on my Instagram page @corgipoominnie
