What breed is your fur baby?
-She’s a Dachsund/Min Pin Mix (both actually have similar personality traits).
What drew you to this breed?
-We got her at a local shelter, but Darling Husband really really wanted a dachsund so it worked out
What useful info about the breed would you give?
-They are very very high energy. Almost in constant play mode. Ours also has separation issues so she whines/cries alot. Both are barkers, but very friendly not agressive. They’re smart but can be stubborn if they are distracted by a toy or scent. She was semi house broken when we adopted her, but only had accidents in the house when we first got her. She always goes to the door and cries to go out. I heard they can have back problems down the line. Since ours is a mix and has tall legs not sure if this will happen to us. I do recommend getting some sort of mixed breed regardless as they tend to be healthier.
Is this a breed you would recommend?
-I would, but only to someone who has the time and patience, especially if its a puppy. You have to give the dog the attention/exercise it needs. Keeping all that energy bottled up doesnt help an already hyper dog. They are very loyal tho..
Growing up I had chihuahuas, I love them. If we get a playmate for her it will be a chihuahua. I recommend them too.
