I love Daschunds, and would love to know more about the history of them.

Just a small story to explain things. A gentleman that my mom works with recently lost his wife. She could not have children so she had 3 dogs and a cat. One of the dogs is a Daschund named Frank Ferter. My husband, my three kids, and I adopted him about 8 months ago. He is the best dog we could have ever wished for. He is very well mannered, and very obedient. About 1 month ago, we came across another Daschund that needed to be rescued. He is only 14 months old, and his name is Wiley. I absolutely love him, but he is quite a handful. I would love to know where the Daschunds came from, what is their heritage. I would also love to know any tips on keeping the puppy from constantly wanting to "play" fight with the older dog. I have tried numerous things, and they don't seem to be working. I hate having to put him in his kennel all the time for punishment.

The hot dogs are cute but I don't think I will ever get one because of my childhood nightmare! Okay, I was about 11 or 12 years old and there was a boy who liked me and his nickname was "BUG." Do I have to explain any more? But BUG kept buggin me and I didn't like him. And I had a little female dog that was a pek-a-pom (half pekingnese and half pomeranian). Anyway, Bug had a dachsund that kept coming over to our house trying to get with my dog! We had a fenced in porch and that dog literally chewed a way into the porch. It was like Bug, so persistent! So now you understand why I don't know if I could ever like those dogs. That's my version of dachsund history! LOL!

That is too funny! I was never really a dog person, and i never really knew much about weiner dogs, but since i have owned them, i absolutely love them. I will try to stay away from people named BUG thought!
