We are thinking of getting a dachshund.We found one in the paper and it is AKC.When I called about it they said it was mostly red with a little bit of dapple in it.I have had a few pups in my time but never a dachshund it is for my daughter.She has taken good care of her one pup she had I guess to get to the point what does it mean red with a little bit of dapple mean.Has anyone heard of it or have had one and are they cute.We can't see it untill we go to look at it.Reason why we can't see it is because of the distance.And are they good dogs?
This is my second time owning a dachshund. They are great dogs. Dachshunds do however have their OWN mind. He still has the hunting instict(they are also called "badger" dogs) in him. We have a yard and when he sees rabbits or deer’s, he wants to get them (we keep him leashed).
My daughter has a pet rabbit named Whiskers. When Nicky would get the chance, he would like to get him too.
Anyway dachshunds are great. They are also very smart. I'm very happy with him.
Thanks for the input we went and got us a very cute dachshund today.It took a little bit of her getting use to us the new surrounding and our other dog which is a jackrussell terrier but after awhile she was up and about and checking everything out.She is so cute and funny our other dog is almost 3yrs old and the pup will be 7 weeks old tommorow.After the 2 dogs getting use to each other they have been haveing all kinds of fun together.The jack thought she could push the pup around and got the surprise of her life.The pup started growling and chased her.We are so happy with her and our other dog is happy having a companion around to play with.This is our first dachshund as you already know so if you or anyone else has any advise please feel free to share.I know about taking her to the vet and getting shots but thats about it.I just want her and our family which includes our other dog to have a happy and healthy life togeher.I have 4 kids but the dogs are my babies too.
