The next time you might be thinking to yourself " I need to get me a dachshund", consider the wirehair I say. You won't regret it. I myself have only had two but they are the sweetest and by far the most laid-back dachshunds I have ever had. My first, Watson was my best dog ever. We miss him still. Miss Peaches is awesome too, and so many people are unaware of the wirehair coat that they are quite the conversation piece. You will most likely need to search a little harder for the elusive wirehaired dachshund, but they are worth it. Don't get me wrong I adore my smoothies, but if you get the chance the wirehair is a little extra special.
