Can you really ever resist a face like this? BTW, this is our own Babble Pets editor, Alie's adorable dachshund named Ollie.
I want a dachshund.
For years now, I’ve swooned over those little-legged creatures on the street with their adorable faces and confident strides. But after having a chihuahua for the past 5 years, I was really longing for a big dog, so about a year ago so we adopted a black lab. She is beautiful; both our dogs are incredibly sweet, actually, and I wouldn’t trade them ever for anything…but I kinda still want a dachshund, too!
You might remember that our household is quite full, with three kids and 16 pets (11 of which are aquatic). Our fur-covered pets consist of three cats and two dogs already, and I’m not sure we’ll add another any time soon. But when the time comes, I am surely getting a floppy-eared, cute-faced dachshund.
Why my obsession, you might ask? Well, besides the obvious (I mean just look at them!), here are 10 reasons why dachshunds are so divine.
