Meet the Dachshund, known for their long bodies, short legs, and big personalities. They're playful, curious, and fiercely loyal to their humans.
Doxies love to play and explore, but their long backs need protection. Avoid jumping and stairs. Short walks and gentle games are ideal for their exercise.
Their short coats come in smooth, wire-haired, or longhaired varieties. Brushing frequency depends on the type, but regular nail trims and ear cleanings are essential.
Doxies can be prone to back problems, obesity, and eye issues. Regular vet checkups are crucial for early detection and prevention of health concerns.
Dachshunds are intelligent but can be independent and stubborn. Positive reinforcement and patience are key. Focus on basic commands and socialization early on.
Doxies have a big bark and a protective nature, making them excellent watchdogs. They'll alert you to anything out of the ordinary.
With their independent streak, Dachshunds love to cuddle and bond closely with their family. They'll happily snuggle up on the couch for hours.
