Debra writes, Duckie (black & brown dachsund) came to our home on June 13th, 2010. I adopted him when Shortie visited him on June 11th and verified it was okay. Duckie does pull up grass and dig. We do work on that. Normally quiet, Duckie does bark at and chase squirrels, cats and birds when they come into our yard. We love and find him adorable. As you can see, Shortie & Duckie take naps together after playing and guarding the home.
