While I raise and hunt 9 bluetick hounds on coons and lions, today my Bride and I are going to pick up our third red dachshund female. We have had two over the last 20+ years and lost the second one about a month ago. After loosing the last one, my wife was so distraught that she said that she did not want another one for a while. That "a while" did not last long as we are picking up the six week old puppy today.
I don't want a dappled, long haired or the mini's as I am a dog breeder and know that you have to have too many recessive genes in there to produce the odd characteristics. When this happens, you loose too many other qualities, generally brains and disposition.
