Belinha is a gorgeous looking Dachshund that’s been in the family for the past 5 years. She is such a lovely dog but words cannot describe how shy and suspicious this dog is. She was brought to us as a puppy and since then has been a wonderful addition to the family.
It’s really not hard to point out Belinha’s most favorite thing in the whole world: food! She has an incredible appetite and not only she will eat all her pallets but also the other dog’s and cat’s too! She also enjoys going to the farm, sleeping and getting her nails done... she usually sleeps during the process.
Belinha doesn't like strangers. At the sound of the doorbell she will run into her kennel and bark continuously from there as she would never face anyone she doesn't recognize the smell. Once the course is clear, she will return to her daily activities.
I would recommend this breed to anyone who’s looking for a small dog that’s loving and will follow you wherever you are. They are so cute (especially when puppies) and never get sick. But be prepared to give away lots of your time to keep them happy.
