Jake is my first dachshund. When my father died, there was no question Jake would have a home with us.
We had a dachshund-terrier mix, who showed us some lovely wiener-dog traits, but Jake opened our eyes to all the benefits of his breed.
Jake and Windy are cuddlers. They love people. They love attention. They love soft and warm areas. If you want an active, boisterous dog, then a dachshund may not be for you.
If you want a snuggle bunny, a wiener dog will fit the bill.
