Dachshunds have always been my top of the line favorite pet! I had them when I was a little girl and then when I grew up and had my own kids, it was one of the first animals I owned. Limo is what we named him because he looked like a black stretch limo! The kids were crazy about him but to me this breed of dog is a one-person animal and he was pretty attached to me. They are very loyal, great guard dogs and think they are always the biggest on the block! You will know when a stranger enters your property or even thinks about entering because his bark alone will frighten them away. They aren't scared of anything! I would say if you are someone who lives alone and has a pretty quiet house this would be the ideal pet for you. I plan to have one in my old, old age to sit in my lap on cold days. They are great lap dogs, will protect you to their own demise and very loving and loyal!
