I have been a dog owner all my life.
Ever since I was a young child, I have wanted a dachshund. My fiance' and I finally bought one 3 years ago. Maverick is by far the best dog that I have ever had. He is the best companion I could ask for. From the moment I met him, I loved him. He has so much personality. He is a very gentle natured dog. He is protective of me, but not in a mean way. He is a little bit skiddish, but he warms up to all people. He plays great with other dogs, and adores our cats. He is an avid watchdog as well. Sometimes, he barks when people are not at our house, but I appreciate his warnings when someone is here. I highly recommend this breed of dog to anyone looking for a lifelong companion.
With dachsies, you get the small dog, but with the personality of a big dog. Be prepared to have a "shadow" as I call Maverick. He follows me everywhere. I love him very much!!!
