When you’re in the market for a dog, the breed you gravitate to involves a lot of factors. How much will he shed?
What is the life expectancy? How much exercise will he need?
Above all, your decision will largely be shaped by how big their breed typically gets.
Even if you’re gambling with a mix, you can gauge just how large the pup is going to get by using an educated guess from his parents or some help from your vet.
With that said, dogs do not always take after their parents or fit into the molds they’re supposed to (just like people).
For instance, meet Noah the chubby corgi!
This fella is by far the biggest corgi I have ever laid my eyes on, either in real life or on the internet.
Although corgis are known for being adorably chubby, Noah also has the bone structure to match.
Reddit user awoolman13 shared this photo of Noah with the caption, “My girlfriend’s cousin’s corgi is literally a mammoth.”
The bio for his account says, “Noah the Chubby Corgi: I’m 90% Pembroke Welsh corgi, 10% who knows and 100% Noah. 59 lbs (26.7 kg) of chub. The biggest corgi you’ll ever see.”
According to The Nest, the average corgi weight is usually anywhere from 24 to 30 pounds.
Females are actually usually less than 25 pounds, and males are almost always less than 30 pounds.
In other words, Noah is a very, very big boy.
If you do the math, Noah is around twice the weight of an average Pembroke corgi.
And yes, he would absolutely dwarf the Queen’s dogs.
Noah may look massive to us, but inside his big body, he has no idea that he’s different.
Plus, more corgi just means more corgi butt, so everyone is happy!
Of course, corgis characteristically are known for their short legs and otherwise normal medium to large bodies.
In fact, they were bred purposely this way to help herd sheep and cattle on the Welsh countryside.
Being low to the ground means they can nip at the heels of livestock and direct them where to go more easily, all the while being just as sturdy as a bigger dog.
Be sure to SHARE these photos of Noah with someone you know who loves corgis!
