Hi, I have a senior citizen Doxie, Poe, that will be 13 years old in August. He won my heart when my son brought him to us (he & his sister both fit in a baseball cap) when he was a couple of weeks old. No one wanted to buy him from the litter because he was solid black. His mother stopped nursing him too soon so I started feeding him on formula from vet & bottle until he could start solid food. He has an underactive thyroid & gets thyroid medication twice daily. He waits for his morning dose in some low fat cheese before he gets up to potty. Yes, he is a fatty (18#) but only a little arthritis at this time. DH & I haven't decided if he thinks he's human or if we're dogs too. He is spoiled but what else do Doxie Lovers do? Look forward to chatting with everyone. Have a great day.

Hi! I have the cutest little half Doxie half Yorkie mix that I adopted from a shelter a week before Christmas. She is about a year and a half and keeps the entire family in hysterics with her cuteness!

Hi, guys. I'm 65, living in the So. Calif. desert, and I'm foster mom to a couple of Doxie's from the local shelter. They're a mom and daughter listed as "Dachshund mix" but they both look like Dachshunds to me. They were found wandering in the desert after who-knows how long, then they were so scared of everyone and everything that they spent three years in the shelter. Theoretically, the goal is to rehab them to the point where they become adoptable. Realistically, they may just be here forever. Right now it's a day at a time. Lots of walks. Lots of bones. Lots of affection. House breaking, if possible - keeping in mind that even softly saying "no" sends them running, terrified, for a place to hide.
They're really a major challenge, and I'm completely crazy about them.
May I join you?

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got.

Hi everyone! I was so excited to find this team today! My husband and I have a mini doxie named Bria, who I love to bits! We also have an Alaskan Malamute named Ichigo, and he is such a Daddy's boy! We got them both at the same time, they get along great. They are both 1 now! Our little doxie sleeps under the covers with us every night, she's too much! She has so much personality!

Hello fellow dachshund lovers! I have a mini black and tan, Zeus, who has traveled with me all over North America for the last 5 years. We currently live in Maryland. He helps keep me active, sitting by the door to let me know he wants to go on his walk. I'm glad to have found this group!

Hi! I'm Jess. I have a mini black and tan named Cooper. He is my baby. I was always a big dog person until the tiny little guy crawled into my arms. When I got him, he barely weighed two pounds, and was the runt of the litter. Now he is a muscly 14 lbs (I'm serious when I say defined muscles. The boy has better tone than I do) and a complete mommy's boy. Except when daddy has treats. Then mommy is dirt. Lol

I'm 22 from South Carolina and I have two doxies. My first is a chocolate and dark tan named Lukas and his love, a blond shorthair named Daisy. We just had our first (and last) beautiful litter of miniatures. We had one blonde (with dapple feet and green eyes), a silver dapple, a black and tan, and a very strange colored tan with a chocolate mask. My dachshunds have a big brother named Lucien who is a boxer mix, and a big sister named Ava who is a blonde haired, blue eyed shepard :D

Hi everyone, I'm new here, but wanted to say Hi and let you all know that I absolutely LOVE dachshunds. I have 11. Some are rescues, etc. They are all red or black and tan. We live on a ranch and I walk with them daily unless it's really hot or cold. They are my best buds.

Hi all, I joined the team a while back, but guess I never really introduced my self. I have had Doxies in my life since I was a child. They truly steal your heart. Our recent fur baby is Oscar. He is a brown short hair mix. We have had him about 6 years. A shelter dog who is attached to my husband. He loves Mommy, but he is Daddy's shadow. I would have a houseful, but Oscar gets jealous. It is great to have a team for all of us.

Hello, I'm Meta and I am the proud owner of two dachshunds. Pippin is my oldest and my baby boy. He's a 12 lb short hair black and tan piebald dapple and he's gorgeous. He had been removed from a backyard breeder at 5 weeks and sent to the shelter with his mother and litter. He went from being a sad, malnourished baby to my hyper boy. Viola is my little girl. She an isabella and tan piebald dapple (though she is mostly white). She never stops moving and keeps Pippin on his toes.

Your "baby sounds cute. Our little girl is very spoiled too. She has to touch someone while she is on the couch and she lays against my lower legs in bed at night. If she wants to get into a different position she will paw us so we can move and she can get comfortable. The other day we caught her sleeping on the couch and her tail was wagging like crazy. It was sooooo cute. Have a wonderful holiday. emoticon

HA HA I bet I know -

We rescued a mini last summer, his name is Baxter. We really don't know the circumstances other than social services had something to do with it!

He is a cuddle bug, and has recently become my walking buddy! I does has some attachment (disorder) issues as I can't even go upstairs for a moment without him whining and carrying on! LOL LOL LOL

He lives with his BIG sister a german shepherd and best friend a (larger - than him) cat!

Hello! I just found your team ad had to laugh at the little side post about doxies. Do you guys know my dog?! I have a miniture doxie named Princess. I also have a poodle, a cat, two birds a tank of fish, a pond of fish and 3 pigs. And of course every stray that seems to wander in. (my husband says its because the word is out that a big softie lives here) Anyhow, just wanted to say hi and thanks for having a group devoted to these great little hunters. emoticon

Hi - just joined SP today and one of the first things I looked for was a team like this : ) I have always been a big dog kind of person, but fell in love with this breed with my daughter's mini. We adopted a rescue mini, last summer and while he is different in many ways from the grand-doxie, we love Baxter dearly! He is such a cuddle bug. But he does have separation issues which is a concern from time to time! More later! But hi to everyone!

Hello I am new to the team. I've been on spark about a month. I bought a long haired miniature doxie the end of September last year, after I was alone alot at home after a collision. He loves his mommy. His name is Ozzy Cooper. Ozzy Osbourne and Cooper Trauma Center, (although my friends remind me Alice Cooper would be better...whatever) He is very active, and high strung. Loves to walk now. Still adjusting to riding in the car in a seat and not on mommies lap like he dip when we brought him home. He is the second dog I've allowed to sleep with me. I love him to death.

Hello, I'm from Canada, but my Doxie, Deezel, is true blue American, born and bred in Kentucky. It seems he's happy to have been transplanted. Like his owner, he was supposed to be miniature, and was brought to Canada for breeding purposes, but quickly got too big, and so now is the world's best pet.

On weight loss and fitness, I have lost 65 pounds in the last 7 months and reached my target weight. The challenge now is to keep it off.

That's too funny! One of our doxies tries to catch moles. She'll dig and dig and grab mouthfuls of dirt and grass with her mouth until she has a hole as big as she is. Hasn't managed to catch one yet, though.

Ours get in the pantry if the door isn't shut and steal food. We find empty chip bags and various wrappers in the laundry room all the time. I think doxies have iron stomachs. You wouldn't believe what ours have eaten and lived in spite of it!

Yes, they are stubborn and naughty which is why they are my favorites..they are various forms of my mini me(probably shouldn't admit that though). I never heard them called the cats of the dog world but it totally fits. I had a doxie that the cats tutored in a mouse catching class. They formed a circle, including Sadie and passed a live mouse back and forth and then they taught her to toss, catch by the tail and snap the neck. Too weird. She also ate a hole the size of her body in my mattress because she was angry about me switching to the graveyard shift. And a few times she deliberately peed on my side of the bed. Talk about being pissed off. She had to be put down recently but of all my doxies she was my heart. Yes they want to be the center of the world but when they really love you they make you the center of their hearts.

Hi there. My son insisted I join the Doxie team when he saw it. We have two minis, Ariel and Abbie, that are actually my sons' dogs. They are 8 now and have brought us lots of laughs. "My" dog is a Cairn Terrier/Mini Schnauzer mix that passes as a Westie, which is why I'm on the Westie team. We also have two guinea pigs, a bearded dragon, and a couple of swimming frogs. We like animals. LOL

We joke about how Ariel has 9 lives and and already used up at least 4 of them. I ran over her with my minivan 5 years ago and she lived to tell about it. Her pelvis was fractured in 3 places and her leg has pins in it. (Don't ask about the vet bill for the orthopedic surgeon.) Before that happened, she was standing on the sidewalk one day and I saw a crow swoop down with its claws out and hit her on her back. The force of it rolled her over a couple of times and she stood up looking like, "What the heck just hit me?" Has anyone else ever had something like that happen?

Anyway, I'm happy to be here among dog lovers. Though I tell my kids that I only "tolerate" the doxies. lol. They are very stubborn and naughty and expect the humans to cater to their every need. I think they're the cats of the dog world.

Good afternoon all,

It is still Sunday 2/28 here on the west coast and I am just finishing up work. I am owned by 3 Dachshunds- 1 SL blk and tan named William, a Mini wire named Gemma and a rescue mini Long named Dolly. Dolly came into the shelter that I work at as a severe demodectic mange dog. She is the sweetest little one around. We joke about what a perfect breeding dog she would have been with her temperament. Of course that is after she was spayed and all healed up. She is a very pretty red/black brindle.
The shelter has seen a run on doxies lately- we have had piebald, douple dapples, black and tans- most have been smooths and oversized minis. Most have been adopted and a couple have gone to the Portland rescue group. It may have to do with the new Oregon puppy mill law.

Talk soon Molly

Hi everyone, my name is Carol... I was very lucky to grow up with doxies(dachshunds), we always had one in the house and the first one I can remember was a beautiful short haired black and tan, standard bitch, called Katie, she was wonderful and was so patient with me as a child. She used to let me dress her up and was a real friend to me. I had my own red smooth standard bitch, called Sara when I was 10 and I used to show her at local dog shows in the child handler classes. My Mum and Dad used to breed and show a few different breeds and my Dad was a member of the Kennel Club and also used to be on the A list of judges for the Kennel Club before he retired. My Mum and Dad still have a gorgeous miniature wire haired bitch, called Winnie, she is just so cheeky, bubbly and cuddly. I absolutely love doxies! emoticon

Hi I'm new here so I guess I'll say a little about myself. I am the proud doggie mama of 3 mini-doxies, Liza Jane is a red short hair, Chester is a black long hair and Layla is a long haired sable. There used to be a 4th, my Sadie, my heart but I had to put her down recently due to spinal damage. It almost killed me. Especially since she was only 5. She was my mini me, my little diva. I also have a white English Lab, Alexander,and a Lab/Border Collie mix named Roger. There are also 8 cats and one very spoiled rat(which was my son's but now is mine, which is probably why he is spoiled). So basically I never met a furry behind I didn't fall in love with. emoticon

Hi everyone,
Just found this site while surfing around S.P.
We adopted Sprout almost 9 years ago because his owners did not want to treat him. At the time he was paralized due to a disc problem - his vet could not stand to have him put down and offered to try to find another home for him. Through massage therapy he was able to move his legs again, but one year later we had to have surgery performed. He is just fine now, has all of the silly habits associated with doxies, gets along with our greyhound and 3 cats, and at almost 12 years of age is a real character.

Hello everyone! I have been on Sparkpeople for almost four months. We have had a doxie for almost 4 years now. Prissy is her name. She is potty trained, is great with kids, and we are working on her going outside to potty without a leash (we have cold winters her in SD). My grandson calls her his dog. He was born a year after her. She is so careful with him so she doesn't hurt him when they play together. Overall she is a great dog!

Greetings from OH! Glad to be a part of this team. I can sure use advice and knowledge from other doxie owners as we recently adopted an abandoned and abused doxie/chihuahua mix named "Rex" who is about 3 yo, has never been potty trained and is afraid of almost everything. He's a work in progress, but getting better everyday. He shares our home along with two tabby cats, a black lab, two teenagers and a husband. Some days, it's a toss up as to who is more challenging to train! LOL!


In the end what matters most is: How well did you live. How well did you love. How well did you learn to let go.

Hello All - Just found SparkPeople last week and the doxie team this morning. I am trying to lose a lot of weight and get re-fit after running a desk for a number of years. My wife and I are involved with DARE dachshund rescue in Florida. We currently have 2 of our own, including 1 who is blind and downed. The other two are fosters, who move on to adoption.

Hey everyone - I'm Trysh, I live in Georgetown, KY with my wonderful husband, the best 20-month-old daughter in the world, two cats and the most spoiled, and subsequently stubborn dachshund in the world named Oscar.

All my life I wanted a doxie - I had no idea, until I got Oscar, what an addiction they are. Oscar has so much personality, it's insane (even though that personality does lead to jealousy issues with the kiddo - he takes his jealousy out on my carpet, not her).

Like everyone, I'm here to get healthy and lose weight - and hopefully make some friends along the way. My hubby doesn't understand my obsession with Oscar, so it's nice to find people who understand. emoticon

Hi! My name is Cheryl and I live in Wisconsin! I'm married and have one teenage son! And, of course, my "tails" (which is what I lovingly call my pets-2 dogs and 2 cats)! I have a purebred Sheltie (Buddy) and a Dachshund/Sheltie mix (Kasey)! And, you can tell by my profile pic, I love Dachshunds (and Shelties, too!) I'd love to get a mini doxie, but I don't think Kasey could handle more competition! She's such a lover and she is super attached to me and super jealous if another "tail" gets more attention--she'll put her head right in the middle or under my arm-- so, she's totally a "ME, FIRST" girl and I love it!

Hi, all! My name is Sarah. I'm 24 and I live in Florida. I am recently engaged, and we're planning the wedding for next November. I have a preschool-age son with cerebral palsy and a miniature dachshund with a severe clownish streak. I'm vegetarian and only recently starting to get into cooking. I can make anything from a box, but I want to learn to really cook. I enjoy reading, needlepoint, and bellydance. I have 28 pounds to lose in total, but I'm breaking that up into 7-pound increments to make it more manageable.

Hi: This is a great board!!!
I'm a relatively new doxie owner (she really owns me!!) - and I'm in heaven.
I've wanted a dog for decades - and finally- after retirement - I adopted a sweet, loving, funny, diva named Lucy. 8 years old. She quickly captured my heart and all who come in contact with her.
She's all doxie!! Stubborn, funny, cuddly, loves to nest, loyal beyond belief, etc.
And.....she's been my saviour. She gets me out 4x a day to walk - in spite of chronic pain. She makes me laugh and loves me unconditionally. In return, I spoil her rotten (as I should!) She pulled me out of a deep depression due to chronic, severe pain.

Check out my SparkPage to see her photo...and that of my late, precious cat, Graycie, who died suddenly a few months ago.

Doxies rule!!!!! Have a great day

This team seemed like it was made for me. I fell in love with Doxies 5 years ago when my husband bought me my first doxie a red smooth coat for a Christmas present. He was the love of my life and it grew from there. We adopted another red from the pound she came from a puppy mill she had been a breeder and was quite old and not socialized but we couldn't help ourselves. a year and half we had to put my peanut down as he had degenerative bone disease and there was no helping him he was suffering badly. I though I couldn't love another one again but instead I've opened my home to rescue other doxies to give them a chance at life. The breed is not understood well and people expect them to be something they are not. Currently we have Wrigley my wire haired Wheaten, Remy a smooth haired Piebald, Roxanne a black and tan rescue, and Hoagie a standard size Chocolate long hair we are taking care of until his family can take him back. Needless to say life at my home is never dull - good thing we have 20 acres.

Hi my name is Laura and I don't currently have a doxie, but I had one growing up and can't wait to get another one. If anyone knows any leads of obtaining a mini doxie up in WI I would greatly appreciate it.

I have 3 minis, one black and tan male named TJ, a red female named Lil' Rose(we call her Rosie), and a female silver dapple named Belle Pepper(we call her Pepper) and we have a minidoxie and beagle mix named Lily. I live in a little town in north central Texas. I have 4 grown sons and a daughter who is a senior in high school. She shows rabbits and a goat in FFA. I joined SP at first just to see what it was but was never serious about losing weight. That is until about a month ago. I decided that it was time to get serious. I am the heaviest I have ever been in my life and I am starting to have some health problems that are due to my weight. So here I am. In the last month I have lost 8.4 pounds and my husband is beginning to realize that this is a good thing because he is starting to lose a little as while.

Hi!
I'm Laurie and I have a mini named Fenway. I'm a Red Sox fan and was really looking for a hotdog-type name, so the Fenway Frank really worked for me. Fenway is my girl and we do so much together. Even when I don't feel like doing anything she gets me outside walking. Great to have a little friend to get you going. I'm looking forward to this team getting me going too!
