Life with a Dachshund

Posted March 31, 2013

I've had my Dachshund, Marty, for about nine years. He is a very affectionate and sweet dog when it comes to adults. I would consider him needy. He has to be by my side, touching me, at all times. He is very aggressive with strange dogs, but he loves his brother (a Westie he was raised with). He loves to eat and will continue to eat if not stopped. He has had back problems, which is common with this breed. He is costly to own due to frequent visits to the vet to treat his back problems.
