I have a dachsund that is 10 yrs old. I her from my ex-boyfriend at the time. They love affection and companionship, just like us humans do. They do not like being left alone. My "precious" loves to sleep with me". She is my snuggle buddy. All I have to say is have patients with her, and she will be your friend for life.

Dachshunds don't really have specific food requirements, any high-quality dog food should be fine . I feed my own Dachshund Innova.

You definitely want to watch her weight, though. They have a tendency to have weight problems which is dangerous as it leads to back problems because of their shape.

Congrats, can't wait for pictures!

Is she a miniature or a standard? I have a standard but I've never met anyone else with one...all I see are the minis for some reason.

Awwwww congrats!! I have 2 dachshunds, too! She is adorable!!

For foods, the 2 we feed our dogs are Solid Gold and Wellness. Natural Balance is a good food, too.

She looks like a sweetie! Very pretty shade of red Congrats on the new addition. How is she liking her new home? Is she being shy or exploring a lot? It looked like she was looking around a lot in the photos.

I bet she'll warm up quick. My first dachshund didn't like toys... it was the strangest thing. He ignored them. My pups now love them. The collar looks very nice. I bet she feels fancy!
