I'm hoping to get a new puppy very soon. We already have a cocker spaniel who is adorable.

I quite fancy a mini wirehaired dachshund. Have done alot of rooting around the t'internet finding out about the breed and their personality, just wondered if anybody on here actually owned one and if you could tell me all about their good and bad point.

I knew one once and she was very sweet but you couldn't touch her as she was in so much pain from her back sad

I think they really are an example of dog breeding gone mad.

We had two when I was a child - the first one had to be put down because he damaged his back.

They were both totally attached to my mum, to the point of howling when she left the house.

They will also dig in anything they can get a purchase on - our second one used to dig the newspaper as it lay on the mat.

They are lovely though, I wouldn't mind getting one myself....
