Life with a Dachshund, two or three...




Whether you are a first-time Dachshund owner, haven’t owned one in a long time, have one but never bothered to research the breed, or are thinking of getting one, you’ll definitely want to know few important things about Dachshunds.


Maxx (black doxie), was my first one. I've always wanted one but could never justify paying hundreds or thousands on a dog. I looked daily at local rescue websites as well as Craigs list. I finally stumbled over a Craigs list post about a husband and wife getting divorced and getting rid of the poor pup. I instancy knew that second I had to have him, his photo they had posted he looked so sad. I emailed the address on the post and said when can meet and pick him up. They reply back just as fast as I sent the email and that night John and I grew to a party of 3.


But boy was I in for a rude awaking.
