May I introduce you to my dog Dorian:
Dorian is a 5 year old wirehaired dachshund who lives with us since he's 12 weeks old. He looks as if butter wouldn't melt in his mouth, but beware, he has lots of willpower & is the most stubborn dachshund I've ever met :-D But who can resist his innocent look? I surely can't *lol*
Dorian is extremely vivacious, he loves being outside & going for looong walks (2 hours+).
I often hear that dachshunds are considered to be false & mean, but I dissent!
So this post is also to strike a blow for all dachshunds out there: They are smart, faithful & charming! Yes, they do have a mind of their own, but isn't that much more interesting than a dog that obeys to everything you say straight away!? I'd say "Yes!" without hesitation :-)
