Miniature Dachshunds can live comfortably in both rural and urban areas. Although they are very active, they need frequent walks and brushing.
We carry a full breed of registered puppies. We service the Prattville area, Collinsville, Mobile Alabama and even Atlanta.
Deciding between a Standard Dachshund and a Miniature is a very personal choice, but when you're weighing your options you need to keep the following characteristics of the miniature dachshund in mind.
- If you have an apartment, a Miniature is great because it can fulfill much of their exercise needs inside the house.
- If you have a lot of stairs, you might want to think twice. You'll need to help them going up and down stairs because their backs are so prone to injury.
- Minis have a lot of energy and love to exercise, but think about how short their legs are. They may not be able to keep up with you for long walks!
- Miniature dachshunds bark—a lot. So, if you really, really hate barking, you may be better off with a Standard (although all Dachshunds like to bark, really).Miniature Dachshund puppies are very small, and fragile. If you have a Mini puppy around, watch where you step and sit. Also, never let a mini jump out of your arms; this could result in a back injury or even a broken leg.
