Injuries include broken legs, paralysis, head trauma and death from cardiac arrest, said Carey Thiel, co-founder and executive director of Grey2KUSA, a Massachusetts-based anti-racing group. He points to state records that show nearly 900 reported dog injuries in Massachusetts from 2002 to 2009; 1,200 injuries at three tracks in New Hampshire from 2005 to 2008, and 3,200 injuries at a West Virginia track between 2005 and 2010, including 150 injuries so severe the dogs were euthanized.
The cutest flippin dog ever a corgi/husky!
Zuza is smol. She’s not only a Horgi (Roman laughs every time he hears that – it’s a corgi-husky mix) but also a pupper (or, a rookie dog, as Roman would have it). His tiny ridiculous friend.
I have a husky corgi mix and this looks just like my dog ..
Church says the dogs are also fed a low grade of food not fit for human consumption, but Cory, the Florida lobbyist, says the racing dogs are “fed the same quality of food I feed my dog, and he sleeps in my bed with me.”

The Horgi is also known as the Siborgi and is a cross between the Siberian Husky and the Corgi. This is a small to medium sized dog with a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years. He is a very keen dog, eager to please and quite gregarious, loving social gatherings, making new friends and being outgoing. He is suitable to live in smaller spaces like apartment as long as he still gets daily exercise. The Siberian Husky is thought to come from a tribe of Siberian nomads called the Chukchi and is one the oldest breeds around. They were bred to pull sleds, be companions and they would sleep with the tribe's children at night to offer warmth and comfort for them. In 1908 they were brought to Alaska during the gold rush to pull sleds. They were also used in dogsled racing where they are still used today. In 1930 when the borders were closed the dogs were no longer imported in, but the breed continued to thrive within America and while some changes happened it still has some of its core qualities. The Horgi can be bred from the Pembroke Welsh Corgi or the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Both the Corgi and the Husky have a history of being working dogs. As part of a growing trend to create deliberate mixed breeds the Horgi is also called a designer dog. Designer dogs have been popular for the last 25 years or so and are still going strong. Some dog people do not approve as it has caused an increase in Puppy Mills and disreputable breeders looking to make money and producing dogs with no care about their health or well being. If you want a hybrid dog make sure you find a good breeder. Since most of these dogs do not have origins, reasons for breeding or any details known about them the best way to see where the Horgi comes from is to look to the parents. The Horgi is a small to medium sized dog and is low set to the ground like the Corgi. It is thought the idea of this breeding might have been to get the Husky look but with the Corgis smaller and lower set stature. He weighs between 20 to 50 pounds and stands around 13 to 15 inches tall. This means he is quite a sturdy looking dog but with short legs. He head is rounded and he has eyes that are almost almond shaped and ears that can be erect. His coat can look like the Corgi or the Husky and common colors are sable, black, cream, white, orange, brown, blue, red or brown.
