We just love our little Doxies! They are from a wire hair litter. As time went by the wired hair turned into wild hair!

They are just lovable and fun to watch as they run around the yard! Gunther(Gunnie) is an awesome mouser, he's the long wild hair.

Our two cats have nothing on him! We joke that Wyatt can't hold his "licker", he's the shorter wire hair. He just loves you death, almost literally!

I dig gardening! by Judy

Photo 15 - Votes 3

Wendall the Weiner Dude will forever be the sweetest, friendliest, most loving dog I've ever owned. A standard dachshund, rescued from a shelter by my ex (yes, I dumped the guy and kept the dog!), has a permanent home in my heart.

Handsome Sam by Val

Photo 16 - Votes 3

Sam is 5 years old and has been part of our family for 3 years. He is a thinker and very cautious. He lets his niece Daisy try things out first.

He is adorable and needs (and gets) lots of love. He enjoys playing with his toys and choosing which one to play with is a difficult decision for him to make.

He won't tolerate other dogs, apart from Daisy, not just in his home, but anywhere. Walkies can therefore be problematic!

Photo 22

Jack has been with us for 6 years now and is the king of the house.  He is a fantastic model for all of his photos because he knows he will be paid in carrots.  If I take photos of his brother, he gets mad because he is the star. 

He is the biggest love bug and has been put on a pedestal since the day he joined our family.  Suffice it to say, I worship the little guy!

Belly Rub? by Hayley

Photo 41- Votes 11

This is my Dachshund named Bandit. We got him a little over a year ago at an animal shelter called Dog Adoption and Welfare Group (DAWG) in Santa Barbara, California. He is my first dog and I LOVE having him around.

He enjoys his treats, long two hour walks, and will even jump on a floaty in the pool with us. He is pretty small for a standard doxie (only weighing about 13 pounds) and like most dachshunds, he likes to bark at anything unfamiliar that's moving.I am so blessed that we found him at the shelter before anyone else adopted him.

Penny by Cindy

Photo 45 - Votes 45

Penny the Doxie

Penny At The Groomer...She Would Rather Be Elsewhere

Photo 46 - Votes 7

Penny came from a puppy mill run by a husband and wife. She lived in a cage and was bred every time she came into heat.

The wife passed away and a man familiar with their practices took advantage of the situation and offered to buy as many of the doxies as the husband would sell.

He ended up with four more dogs than our small-town pet ordinance allows. Although I'd never had a dog..."I did as a child," I'd begun to think seriously about getting a small dog.

It was shortly after that one of my daughter's sent me a picture message of Penny on my phone with the text,

"this is Penny and she needs a home. She's just been spayed, shots and treated for fleas. She still has some fleas and she's scratched off all the hair on her belly and some other places but Jeff can't keep her or he'll get in trouble with the city and he will give her to you just so she'll be in a home where she's loved."

I didn't have to think long. Within a few days Penny was in our home and she's been a spoiled little mini dachshund ever since.

Although I buy her a 4 Star rated, grain-free (grains make her itch) dry food, my fiance discovered a certified organic raw food at the health food store he frequents and Penny just nibbles at her dry food, knowing that Levi will be by in the evening and he'll give her "the good stuff."

Although she's only ten pounds, she seems to think she's our watch dog and will bark like crazy when someone who doesn't live with us comes over...barks and runs into the other room. Some protection she is!

Living her whole life, previously, in a cage, Penny was never potty trained. It took some time to get that down and she still goes and hides and potties in the house more frequently than she ought to but NEVER will a hand of violence be raised too her.

The first seven years of her life were very rough and all of her pups were taken away. The rest of her life is going to be kind. That's the least we can do for her.

Spoiled??? who me??? by Bambi

Photo 47  - Votes 2

When is mom coming to get me?

This was Andouille (Dewey), he was a Isabelle dachshund that was 3 years old when he was tragically hit by and car and thankfully died a very quick death.  I miss him terribly.  He had the sweetest disposition and loved to get on your shoulders and lay around your neck to take a nap. 

This picture was taken a few days before he died, when he was at my daughter's house for a few days while our other doxie was having some health issues.  She was at her desk and he was staring at her as if to say "when is my mom coming to get me"?  LOL

Running Full Speed with Heart by Carol

Photo 50 - Votes 15

Maggie is a four year old wire haired dachshund and a wonderful member of our family. Her favourite past time is to go riding on an ATV with us. We have built a box for her so that she can ride easily.

She is a true bed hog too... it's amazing how we can move around in bed trying to get comfortable while trying to avoid disturbing her... LOL.

She talks to us when she wants something and gives us "the look" when she doesn't. She makes us laugh every day. Everyone should own one!

Lily, Blossom and Sprout by Marlene

Photo 55

Lily, Blossom and Sprout are all from the same family. Lily came to us first, after the little dog I had died. My husband told me that he would buy me another puppy if I would go over to the Doxie breed. Lily is the red doxie.

I wanted a dapple, so I asked my friend to let me know when and if she should happen to have a dapple show up. Well, sure enough, Lily had a little half sister dapple. Her name is Blossom. Blossom was supposed to be the last one, but when we met Sprout, he just had to come home with us.

These dogs have a very set mind of their own, and they tell us what they want, and when they want it. They are like children to us and go most everywhere we do.

Sprout is the little one of the bunch, but he sure isn't the quietest! He and Blossom have the same parents, so they are sister and brother. We love these fur babies and think they are beautiful...........

Thinking seriously!

Photo 57

Photo 58- Votes 2

Lily is our red miniature doxie, Blossom is our first dapple, and Sprout is the baby of the bunch. They are all from the same family. Lily, being the oldest looks after her siblings, and tries to keep them in her sight.

Once in a while, she tries a little too hard and gets grouchy with them, but they hold their own with her. These babies are very important to us, we love them like our children.

They are very spoiled, and go most every where we go. They tell us what they want and most of the time they get it! They let us live with them!

He likes to be in control and he's very protective over me and my wife. He's afraid of small children but very lovable with grown ups.

He loves his spiderman and blue bulls body warmers. If he does not get what he wants he can ignore you for almost an hour.

When he starts grooming my ears he means business and he won't stop until he had enough.

We love him very much.

He also loves his sleep. We got a queen size bed and even though he's so small he takes almost half the bed alone ha ha.
