Say Hello to Miri

Dachshund (Miniature Smooth-Haired), 8 years old

🏠 Suburbs dog
🍷 Lives with adults only
Miri was adopted!

She came from Dachshund Rescue UK .

My favourite thing about Miri is...

Her unconditional love.

The biggest challenge with Miri is...

Barking at a pin dropping. Separation anxiety. Obesity was an issue when she came to me. Dachshunds can be food obsessed. Having gone from 12.5kg to, now, under 6kg, she is living a healthy life. Loves other dachshunds but reactive with other breeds until she's given them a good sniff and satisfied herself that she is the boss!!

The most surprising thing about owning a Dachshund (Miniature Smooth-Haired) is...

How feisty they are. They think they are Great Danes.

What I wish I’d known about Dachshunds (Miniature Smooth-Haired) is...

How obsessed you become with the breed once you've had one, despite their challenges.

Did you know?

Dachshunds are big barkers which can be traced back to their hunting days when they’d trap prey underground and then call for the hunters to come and locate them. It’s likely you’ll have to train them how to stop so they don’t become a nuisance!
