Mini dachshund puppies for sale Tampa
Mini dachshund puppies for sale Tampa have soulful eyes and complex facial expressions. Their lungs are large for a dog this size and they have a barrel-like chest. Because of these things, Dachshunds have a loud, deep bark that sounds as though it comes from a much larger dog. If you have allergies to dogs, make sure you know if you’re allergic to the dachshund you’re getting before you bring him home.
Dachshunds often bond closely with a single person. They may even become jealous of their owner’s attention and can, if not properly trained and socialized, become snappy.
Smooth Dachshunds are the most popular variety in the United States. Their coats are short and shiny and need little grooming. They do, however, need a sweater in the winter if you live in an area with cold weather. Common colors are red, cream, black and tan, black and cream, chocolate and tan, blue and tan, and Isabella (fawn) and tan. Dachshunds also can have patterns in their coats, such as dapple (a mottled coat pattern), brindle, sable, and piebald.
Dachshunds are happiest being around people and shouldn’t be left alone too long while you’re at work (this is especially important for very young pups). So if you’re not home during the day, either you or someone you know, need to pop in every few hours to let your dachshund out. You might have family or friends who could look after him during the day or you could hire a dog sitter or dog walker to check in on him. Leaving a dachshund alone too long could lead to separation anxiety, excessive barking,, or destructive behaviors. Having said that, some adult dachshunds do fine on their own, so it does depend on the individual dog.
