My powerful German dachshund

Benny was an incredibly powerful dachshund, large for his size, and much more ferocious than most American dachshunds. It might be because he was a German breed. He barked ALL the time, but he was a great watch dog, and really loved us. I have to take some responsibility because I think we could have done more to train him. I started teaching him more tricks later in his life, and he responded wonderfully! I wish we had started earlier though.
