The Miniature Dachshund
The miniature Dachshund is extremely intelligent, very alert with a great personality all of its own. The Dachshund is reliable and loyal to its owner.
The smooth coat is very easy to keep clean and does not have a "doggie" odour, which makes the dachshund very acceptable as a house pet. They love company and enjoy having people around them. Going out for a walk is enjoyed but they must be on a lead, as they have no road sence. They have a loud bark for such a small dog and this could help in keeping intruders out. Dachshunds almost without exception share a common pleasing disposition - They truly enjoy attention and love. The Dachshnd has a smart yet gentle look about him - this is an accurate reflection of his temperament. The Dachshund has the ability to adapt to almost any environment, whether you live in a small high - rise apatment or a house in the country.
