Hello All! Let me start by saying that I have a 4 year old Dachshund named Oscar, and a 9 year old Dagle named Belle. They are both rescues. We have had Belle since she was 10 weeks old, and we have only had Oscar for one year. We had a boxer named Jax who passed away on June of this year with Lymphomia, he was 9 years old. For the short time we had Oscar, and Jax they became buddies. Oscar followed Jax everywhere he went and he waitied for him before he would go outside. Oscar is a handful. He was abused before we got him. So he is not very trusting towards other people. We get bit if someone knocks on the door and we answer it. If someone comes in the house that he does not know he will go after them as well. Don't get me wrong, Oscar is a very sweet, loving dog. He just thinks he is protecting himself, and us. Besides not liking strangers the only other problem we have is housebreaking him. I have never had a dog that I could not housebreak until him. He knows what go outside means, and he will go outside to use the bathroom, but he has daily accidents in the house. It seems like he is having more accidents with Jax being gone in the house than what he was before. Here the past week or so, we have had to change our bedding on our bed twice because he has peed on them. We have no idea why because he has never done this before. We get on to him, but I have had hard time getting on to him because of him being abused before we got him. Oscar is our first daschund that we have owned. I wanted to become a member of this site so, that I can learn and get some suggestions from experienced Dachshund lovers.
