We have always had dachshunds that we get from small breeders that we know. That way we were able to meet the mom and dad and see they were all kept clean and safe and were most of all healthy. I did try adopting a dachshund years ago, but it didn't work out. She was aggressive and had potty issues
Don't get me wrong, I love the good rescues do for pets and we support them financially several times a year, but please don't give me a lecture because I decide buy my pets elsewhere.
