Default Dwarfism in border collies?

Ok this is a weird question, but I'll try anyways.

I see a lot of dogs that look identical to border collies except they are short in the leg. They are always referred to as 'corgi x bc'. Which is probably totally possible. But I was wondering if anyone knew if dwarfism happens in the breed. I know it can happen in other breeds. And these dogs look 100% border collie except for the legs. I was watching a video of one running agility and it behaved 100% border collie too.

Although on the other hand, some cardis look awfully BC-like so I could see a cardi x BC looking like a short legged BC too.
