As a recent owner of Dachshunds (a male and two females)with the intent to breed each female at least once, this was one of the most informant books I have read. There are lots of good books available, but I found this to have most of the information under one cover.

I was new to the dachshund breed when I came a cross one that needed to be rescued. Although I had dogs all my life, I always had big dogs. I felt I needed information about the breed to help me know the breed. This book help me with the information I needed.

I have recently rescued 6.6 pound 9 year old lady Dachshund love. It is a great book, has answered all my questions. Still I have taken her for shots and check up to the local vet.
