Our dachshund is an absolute loveable mess! She is extremely cute, but she is a mess. She has chewed everything possible in our house! Although, she was easy to potty train and know basic commands such as sit, stay, come, lay down, shake, and high five. Other than the excessive chewing she is a love bug. She always wants attention and is jealous of anyone getting attention if she isn't receiving any. She tries to eat as much as she can and has been known to steal food that hasn't been attended. She loves MILK and anything that we have! We have to keep her out of our milk! She absolutely loves children, but is very shy with strangers. Her nails grow extremely fast and must be clipped once a month.
Dachshunds are a lot of work and I don't suggest busy families that don't have time to adopt or purchase them due to the amount of attention they need.
