Is the Cocker Spaniel / Dachshund Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Docker

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Docker is a cross between the Cocker Spaniel and the Dachshund, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the parent breeds in the mix. They tend to be active, energetic pets that can be right for many families.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, in general with the Docker you can often expect a dog that looks a bit like an elongated Cocker Spaniel.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, many owners say that their Dockers are loyal and energetic, needing lots of playtime with their family. However, the personality of any given Docker is very individual, and there is no substitute for taking time and care to properly socialize your pet. Some will not do well with cats or other family pets.
