Things you should probably know about miniature Dachshund’s.

So, Oscar is now six months old. I thought I’d share with you some of my experiences about my delightful little mini sausage. Miniature Dachshunds are also known as, wiener dogs, sausage dogs, or as I like to call him, the most beautiful little sausage. Yes, he answers to that, he absolutely loves it too, the spoilt little susej. Oh god, did I really just share that with the internet wow. crazy dog lady alert

Turn around and your dachshund will be there, always. Silent, stalker, stealth (expert mode) sausages. You thought you could take a trip to the bathroom to pee in peace? Well you thought wrong!

When it comes to food, shoes, or just about anything really. Dachshunds are super fast. They have a great poker face too, he swears he hasn’t been at the box of icing sugar that was left for less than a second…


They give the best cuddles, they constantly want to be on your knee, they live up to being a ‘lap dog’ quite literally but they also double up as a little hot water bottle so it’s a win, win situation really.

Dachshunds have numerous facial expressions from simply charming to deeply concerned, to death stares.


They also believe they have the power to brainwash humans into sharing food or letting them on the sofa.

If you look very carefully they’ve been known to crack a smile from time to time, usually when any form of food is involved. They can hear the rustle of wrappers from miles away (you have been warned)

That smile tends to appear especially when loud, annoying squeaky toys are involved. He looks pretty cute there right? Oh did you want to watch the TV? He couldn’t hear you over all of the squeaking.


On the whole Miniature Dachshunds are pretty damn great. As for Oscar, he’s a lovely little sausage, short yet sweet full of total sass and he won’t take no sh*t from no one.

    Now I want a dog! =D

  12. April 24, 2014 / 5:05 pm

    Oscar is too cute! I've always wanted a dog but it's not on cards any time soon unfortunately. It's amazing just how unconditional their love is.

    Oh gosh he is the cutest thing! I'm desperate for a dog right now but our landlord won't allow it so as soon as we can move out of this flat we'll be getting one! Love this post – more Oscar!!


  14. April 24, 2014 / 5:36 pm

    Becky seeing Oscar on your blog and Insta makes me want to get one so much more than I already do… My boyfriend's already promised we can get one haha! HE IS SO BEAUTIFUL I CANT EVEN. xxx

  15. April 24, 2014 / 6:20 pm

    So cute! My former co-worker used to have one, and he's such a darling. He's got his own personality. When he's done walking, he'd just stop and refuse to move. My friend had to carry him back home every time, LOL!

  16. April 24, 2014 / 6:25 pm

    Your dog is the cutest, love the snap of him with icing sugar on his face, what a sweetie!

    Been looking for a miniature dachshund to adopt for a couple months now. This post has made me even more anxious. <3

  18. April 24, 2014 / 6:53 pm

    Aww he's so cute! I love dachshunds but I can't get one because I have bunnies and that would not work out well!

  19. April 24, 2014 / 7:27 pm

    Definitely the most adorable little sausage I've ever seen! i love all of his cheeky little expressions – so cute and full of character! xx

  20. April 24, 2014 / 8:10 pm

    My family has 4 mini dachshunds! They are the absolute best breed. So full of personality. Follow my instagram @stephxoweeniedogs 🙂

    OH MY GOD, I was having enough issues that I didn't have a cute friend but this isn't helping! xo

  22. April 24, 2014 / 11:54 pm

    I am getting a mini sausage dog next year and I cannot wait 🙂 x

  23. April 25, 2014 / 3:41 am

    So cute! Does he bark a lot? I heard dachshunds can be noisy. And how is he with other dogs? Sorry, I have many questions. Been thinking about getting a dachshund. 🙂

    • April 28, 2014 / 3:42 am

      Dachshunds are big barkers, and it depends on their interaction with other dogs and/or their temperament my 2 dachshunds are similar in the fact that they're both quite dominant, have little dog syndrome, and do not get along with many dogs, but like I say in my comment…WHO….who in their right mind, can resist them???

    Awww, darling Oscar and his sweet sweet eyes!

  25. April 25, 2014 / 8:04 am

    It kills me that you and I aren't blog friends yet, we're already friends in my mind even though you've never spoken to me.. I feel like we'd get on like a house on fire if we ever met in person. 😛 Oscar is gorgeous by the way and I literally cracked up when I got to the part about them believing the have the power to brainwash us.. Ellie pulls that exact same face all the time! You can see a perfect example of her brainwashing/sooky sausage face in this blog post of mine: (it's the photo right at the top!). 🙂 I'd love it if you could stop by my blog and say hello sometime. 😀

  27. April 25, 2014 / 9:45 am

    I've never seen such a cute Dachshund like Oscar, he really has the best facial expressions! 🙂

  28. April 25, 2014 / 9:51 am

    oh my i am in love with him. i want one so bad 🙂

  29. April 25, 2014 / 12:40 pm

    So adorable. I just love sausage dogs…it makes me chuckle how their little legs have to move so quickly 🙂 🙂

  30. April 25, 2014 / 6:31 pm

    This post cheered me up so much. Thank you. There's nothing like an adorable pet and a loving owner. Thanks so much!


  31. April 25, 2014 / 11:14 pm

    I am actually getting a mini sausage myself later this year, I cannot wait. Oscar is a dream and has made me super excited. Amazing!! I literally cannot express how cute he is.

    He's so cute! I have a longhair Dachshund, who turned 15 a few weeks ago.. and I really recognize a lot from what you said about Oscar in my Dachshund, only he isn't such active anymore but that's obviously also his age kicking in, but he still has moments where he runs after the ball all excited.
    I'm considering getting a miniature Dachshund once I move out and have enough time to spend on him

    He is so adorable! And yes, dachshunds are very crafty and sneaky! (:

  34. April 28, 2014 / 3:40 am

    I agree with it all, but you must have a very placid sausage, because my 2 are total ratbags when it comes to 'being nasty' they get along so wonderfully…and then all of a sudden they're attacking each other and drawing blood. Frankie the frankfurter seems to think it is OKAY to bite people, and attack all forms of animals, Chip the Chipolata seems to think that it is OKAY to bite my butt when in the middle of a fight with Frankie. They BOTH think it is OKAY to wee…everywhere, anywhere, mark their territory even just at the dog door, everywhere…EVERYWHERE there is wee!! It's a love hate relationship, and I have to admit, my westie gets the 'best behaved' dog in my household. But those eyes, those cuddles, those popcorn smelling feet, those floppy jaloppy ears…well, really, who can resist? I love dachshunds even though all of the above is an every day chore haha

    Just stumbled across your blog and this little man drew me right in! Dachsies are just the cutest dogs and your boy is adorable! You've captured their expressions perfectly! I moved away from home leaving mine behind and I can't wait to be reunited!

    Awww that cuteness is killing me!!

  37. May 1, 2014 / 1:36 pm

    Very Handsome! I have 2 boys same color, the older Hemingway is mild temperment and younger Charles dickens is very bossy and have to have everything his way. Daschund are very overly affectionate dogs. loads of fun. I love them!

  38. May 4, 2014 / 1:32 pm

    So adorable, I love dogs, sometimes more than people.

  39. May 5, 2014 / 12:43 am

    Aw this makes me miss my two sausage dogs back home so much! One black and tan like Oscar and one 'red' which is like a gingery/tan colour! They are the cutest breed, love your pictures! xo

  40. July 18, 2014 / 9:59 am

    After reading this it has made me want a sausage dog even more! (if that was possible), hopefully one day I will get my own! 🙂 I have a cocker spaniel at the moment, who has the same colourings as a sausage dog, and she pulls a lot of the same expressions 🙂

    I’ve got an 8 month old mini sm ooth (red) sausage dog and I’m crazy in love with him – he’s everything as described in the post. I can’t imagine life without him. Throughout my life I’ve had a Wire Haired Terrier, Dalmaton, ,3 Cocker Spanials and a Boxer – but he far outshines all in every way – he’s just georgous.

    The dachshund is truly a remarkable breed with bundles of energy. We have found the only way to manage their high level of energy is by selecting the right toys for Dachshunds. And yes they love their squeaky toys for sure!
