Dachshund Fans?

We have a standard red who had back surgery 3 years ago and has rebounded remarkably. He's very gentle with our 2 year old.

  • We just adopted a 6 month old doxie/jack russel mix from a rescue. She is the most wonderful dog I have ever had! I am definitely a fan!

  • I have a male black and tan mini. He's almost 11 yrs old, and he's the most precious thing I've had since having pets. He's my little guard dog. LOL

  • They are kind, loving, sweet, smart and very stubborn.(They are lap dogs they always want to be with you. ) And protected my husband when he was attacked while walking our 2 doxies 15 years ago. Our girl doxie bit that guy on the leg. You Go Girl. She never bit anyone again. Unfortunately she died this week she was 17and a half. So as of this week, I no longer have a doxie. She will be greatly missed. When my son was born 11 years ago she always wanted to be nearby, she did want to give kisses. They are very difficult to potty train, probable due to their stubbornness. That is what I meant by stubborn and when they are cozy don't want get up, but who does. Good Luck.

  • I have a 1 1/2 year old male "Chiwienie"...half Chihuahua and mini Dachsund. He's the best little guy! He is a bit stuborn, but otherwise he's great all around. He's definetly a lap dog, and follows me like my shadow :) Hubby hates him though, he thinks ALL dogs should be outdoors...grrrrr! Growing up we had a mini Dachsund. He was somewhat honory, but a pretty good family dog.

  • I have heard that they aren't very good with kids, can be vicious and can be one ppl dogs...But ours is the sweetest thing! He is not a mini, yet a little small for a standard. He's had a slipped disk issue that was looking pretty bleek for awhile but he is vastly improving. He licks a lot anyone else do that? He's considered a red i think, short haired his name is Fruehauff and he's 5.
