Taking a Miniature Dachshund puppy home

Because they were originally a hunting breed, Mini Dachshunds tend to be high-spirited and independent and need regular exercise to stay fit. Despite this, they do well in smaller environments and can live happily in a condo or apartment. They do great with families with older children, but do not like to be handled too roughly. They need consistent exercise and absolutely no people food, as they tend to gain weight which puts too much strain on their long backs.

Other interesting things about the Doxie

Doxies come in three coats: smoth, longhaired and wirehaired. They are also considered the snowflakes of the dog world, as they come in every variety of coat color out there! They stay around 15-20lbs and have a life span of about 12-14 years. Dachshunds are very loving and loyal to their owners and become very attached to their families. We find that people tend to collect Dachshunds and will have a household full of them!
