    The source of this photo is Wiki Commons. If you want to contact the author, try going to that site. It appears that this photo was uploaded in 2007 though, so I am not sure how much luck you will have proving this is your dog?

"Many breeders suggest feeding Miniature Dachshunds puppy food throughout their lives. Their diets should include horse meat, beef, wheat, and yellow corn. The Dachshunds are prone to obesity, so overfeeding should be avoided."

NO dog should be fed horse meat or yellow corn!

Dachshunds are prone to gaining too much weight. Which is precisely why they should NOT be fed puppy food their entire lives!

    Corn can cause a bunch of skin problems the first ingredient should be meat.

I have one female Dachshund named Jake. I got her from my Gram when she was about two years old. (Gram named Jake after that old country song that goes, "If I die before I wake, please feed Jake")

Jake is going to be 12 years old this coming February 18th, 2009, and she is the Pretty Princess Puppy. She is very spoiled and she adores human men - she hates her "brother" JD (a male yellow lab/chow chow mix) and is always scheming to take the best bones and treats from him, as well as trying to steal the best spots on the pillows we have for them.

She is my darling girl, and she loves to have yogurt in her food once a day. A simple table spoon (as in, a spoon from the table where we humans eat) of plain, sugar-free yogurt really helps with her skin and her coat, and it must taste wonderful to her, because she's all the time begging for it at the fridge!

We have had our mini Dachshund for 3 days and I have fallen in love. My husband and I have 5 kids, and we love "Fash". However he is not eating his dog food which is puppy chow-what kind is best for him? He is 8 weeks.

    I'm not sure what kind of food is best for your puppy, but I've had puppies before and so I've learned that if they don't want to eat their solid food at first. They'll eat it if you add water to it to make it good and soggy. Hope this works for your pup!

    We kept a bowl of Eukanuba (ground up with blender). I would mix it with warm suplemental puppy milk.
  • Sweetjoan - 2012-03-01
    Try to add a water, hot water, to make it soft and wait for 5 minutes before you give. Try Beef pro dog food, before my brand is eukanuba but it doesn't like my mini dachs.. so I switched it to Beef pro.

    Mine is a very pickey eater I tried everything moist hard soft. Now he eats soft and moist but I have to sprinkel his food with NUPRO. It's a dog supplement. He loves it and it makes his coat nice and shinny. You can get it from ebay. It's much cheaper.

Watched a good family movie last night 'Goodbye My Lady' with Walter Brennen and Brandon Dewild. It's about a boy and his rescued dog - a Basenji, made about 1956 - Black and White.

I had a male beagle from a pet store for 13 years until he died of cancer. I also saved a 5 month old beagle mix from a bad home a year later. She lived for 12 years (even though she had many problems such as hypothyroidism and then later in life she developed diabetes and blindness). They were wonderful dogs and were very close to each other. They were very good with my boys. The problems that I had were the peeing especially when I would go out. I had to crate them everytime I would go out. They also dig up your yard horribly! A fence is a necessity, though you must chip them because they will dig under the fence and get out. Beagles are very cute, affectionate, and funny. They can be mischievous, and they act like they are starving all of the time. They cannot get enough food, and will even dig in garbage to get some! I recently adopted a beagle/shepard mix from the shelter. She is almost a year old and she is incredible with my 15 year old Autistic son and especially with my almost 2 year old Down Syndrome son. At times, he has gone up and smacked her, and she just rolls on her back and lets him, then licks his face to say it's ok and she understands. People considering this breed should be patient people who love animals. Beagles can be trained, but they kindly resist for a while. Beagles want to be a big part of a family, so you should be home a lot and include them in outings. A chest leash is important because a neck leash will choke them as they pull with their nose to the ground. Remember to check and clean their ears often, and when their ears get wet, dry them inside and out thoroughly.
Overall, a beagle is a great choice with the right owner and family.

I grew up with two beagles and absolutely loved them. Of course I am biased, but I think they are the most adorable dogs. I found them to be great playmates and would recommend them as a family pet.
