Is the Dachshund / Miniature Pinscher Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Doxie-Pin

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 Doxie-Pin is a cross between the Dachshund and the Miniature Pinscher, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the parent breeds in the mix. While this small companion mix isn't as common as some of the other so-called designer breeds, it can make a good apartment-sized pet for the right owner.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, many Doxie-Pins look a lot like Dachshunds with MinPin markings.

Behavior / temperament:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog like the Doxie-Pin. Socialize early, with kindness and positive reinforcement, to get the best from this mix.
