We lost our princess Lily this summer and our home has been very quiet without her very vocal presence--our other 2 Dachshunds have become quite deaf and are very quiet. We decided we needed a third little sausage. We intended to get an older dog, but through a series of events, we ended up with a puppy! She is a silky wirehaired Dachshund, which is a fairly rare coat type. Don't let the cute face fool you--she is a wild child--and so is the puppy!
