Is the Dachshund / Rottweiler Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Dachsweiler, Rotten Weenie

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.

Irresistible as a name like "Rotten Weenie" might be, the pairing of a Dachshund and a Rottweiler is not usually something planned by human breeders. But accidents do happen, and you may occasionally find this mix in a rescue.

Appearance / health:
While many Rotten Weenies are indeed short-legged, long-bodied animals, their size can vary wildly, and some can end up being surprisingly large.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's always difficult to predict the exact personality of any mixed-breed dog, you never know what you're getting with this cross. One owner reported that his dog could track down smells like the scenthound and also be a fine watchdog like the Rottie, but this outcome is by no means guaranteed. You will want to socialize these dogs well and give them interesting things to do. A bored dog could be destructive.
