I have 2 dachshunds-henry-black/tan/dapple mini-and piper a long red hair beauty. They have dachshunds character to a tee. Bold,stubbron,tenacious,DIGGERS,clowns,and most of all compasonate. I've owned many breeds in my live,but none have lived up to my doxies. Is is as though they feel what you feel,asways there to turn my frown upside down.

I have a 14 year old doxie and everything said about a doxie is not him. Yes, he loves everyone, he never met a person, child, or another dog he didn't like. He does not bark, just looks. He is not stubborn, but very smart. He has never chewed up anything since I got him at 6 weeks old. He is the perfect dog, no bad habits, not a digger. Why is he so wonderful and even though he is registered not have any of the doxie traits?

I know I just left a long comment, but after reading the comment from Heather in AR, I wanted to add. I too am on disability for depression and Jaeger, his name, has kept me from falling apart many a times. He knows when I'm down and knows exactly how to make me happy. He sounds exactly like Heather's dog. It's pretty obvious these dogs know alot more than us people. I really want to thank Heather for her comment, it made me feel real good. Thanks, Heather.

So much of what was said of the dachshund certainly isn't mine. I got him at 6 weeks and he grew up in the back office of my night club and now I'm on disability. So, we have actually been together 24-7 since day one. He is the friendliest guy in the world and never barks. He thinks everyone (young to old) is his best friend. He turned 14 in Jan. 2011 and although he has a heart condition, can still run fast on walks. He is the boss, not me, but when I look at him a certain way (he went deaf about 3 years ago), he knows to listen. He sleeps under the covers anywhere in the house. Dr. has only given him about 6 months to live and I don't think I can live without him. He's been my best friend for 14 years and we trust each other like no other.

I fell in love with Oscar when my daughter gave him to me as a puppy. I'm disabled,so I spend most of my days at home,but I do take Oscar for a walk everyday, my disability is depression, and when I really feel mentally upset, Oscar will look at me with such concerned eyes. I feel he knows how I feel all the time. I tend to stay at home a lot and don't socialize very much due to my depression so Oscar is my lifeline to Life. He is such good therapy for me and for him-we're closely bonded. In the house he follows me from room to room and when I let him outside in my big front yard, he won't stay outside unless I sit on the front porch with him. I like it that way because I get the benefit of being outdoors a lot enjoying nature. I have a long rectangular flower pot that I attached to my wrought iron fence on the front porch and I fill it with birdseed and sunflower seeds-which, of course, also attracts all the squireels in the area, so Oscar has great fun chasing the squirrels when we first go outside because they are sitting right in the birdseed eating away. They are so fast, Oscar gets frustrated because he can't catch them. He usually barks up at the tree the squirrels climbed up! HA Oscar is almost ten years old and on some days our walks are short because he has some arthritis. My problem is that when Oscar needs health care the Vet Hospital wants payment at time of service and I'm on Social Security Disability. Fortunately, my 31 year old son helps pay for Oscar to get his teeth cleaned or any other service required-I just don't know how much my son would pay if Oscar was to succum to a chronic illness that needs expensive treatment. As Oscar grows older-I fear the day when he passes away. I don't know whether I'll be able to handle it very well-I wish dog years were equal to human years. I love him so much.The way he loves me unconditionally,he is so much better than us humans-I've learned and am still learning from Oscar's unconditional loving behavior. Thank you for letting me give you my input.

The article was very good but don't forget to use the word STUBBORN when discribing this wonderful dog. I have had 3 and would not have any other breed of dog. They are so devoted to their people and so much fun,

I am a doxie person. I have been a breeder and have two doxies right now. I think they are the best dogs in the world. I just lost my beloved doxie who was 17 years old. My husband bought me a new puppy, it is a Cairn Terrier. I think I might lose my mind, this is not anything like a doxie.

I have had 15 doxies in my lifetime-obviousily am devoted to the stubborn but loveable little devils. I am in the market for another mini to entertain my very active 9 year old. I have a large yard & live by the sea. Prefer a puppy or no more than 1 year old one. I am a good doggie mother.
