Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted January 17, 2016
Nora was a lost dog. We found her nearby our house, she was scared and alone. We took her for time, trying to find her owners, but this has no effect. So we decided to leave her to live with us :)
Nora seemed to be happy to be with us. But she had some psychological problems. Sometimes she became too aggressive and hyperactive, and I think, it was connected to her past life. She had nervous periods, when she need to nibble something all the time, also there are some troubles with the walkings (she fell off the leash and run). But otherwise it was a great dog.
I found dachshunds to be extremely loyal and intelligent friends. We didn’t train Nora for special, but in the end she knew about 20 commands. She also was very empathic, always knew everybody’s mood. She had special relationship with everyone in our family and she seemed to be ready to protect us to death. Remarkably, she didn’t interested in another dogs, at all. This dog always wanted to connect to people and was very happy to meet someone new. She adored our family friends and seem to be upset when they leaved.
It was easy dog to provide too. She was eating almost everything, she was small and did not require a lot of space :) In general, except for some psychological difficulties, it was a wonderful pet, so I can recommend a dachshund if you have enough time to devote it to your dog.
