Acquired: Breeder (professional)

Bore (Swedish name, pronounced Booray in English) was a lovely dog, very energetic and always interested in everything that was happening around him.
My father hunts deer and elk when in season here in Sweden, and it is important to him to have the support of a good hunting dog, so Bore was trained from an early age.
They are super clean. Their fur is tight and short so mud washes off easily and they will obediently stand still whilst their feet are cleaned.
He was stubborn, very much a "I know what I want to do and I'm going to do it regardless" kind of dog. This usually manifested when he wanted the prime seat on the sofa - they are surprisingly heavy dogs for their small frame and once they entrench themselves they can be pretty difficult to shift!
No matter how well trained a hunting dachshund is, there will always be times when he will just take off on his own after an imaginary deer, leaving the owner waiting to wait for him until the dog decides to come back.
