Meet Luna and Louie, the Mini Dachshunds

Meet Luna and Louie, two adorable energetic, smart and curious Mini Dachshunds who love the outdoors. Louie is red shaded and only 11 months old. Luna is a silver dapple, almost two years old and has heterochromia, a rare and strikingly gorgeous condition which causes her to have two different colored eyes. Heterochromia is common in Dachshunds and contrary to many believes, dogs with blue eyes normally don’t have any vision problems. Both dogs were bred in Tasmania, an island state of Australia.  To get to learn more about Mini Dachshunds, we asked Luna and Louie's mom (Loretta) some questions about them: How did you decide you...

"Don't hate me... I'm a good boy"

He needs a lot of structure and training unlike Noah, which came so natural to him. Noah can't stand being around Lincoln for longer than five seconds, probably because of the age difference. However, they do come together for food, tug-a-war and walks. When one is being cuddled, the other will get jealous and bulldoze his way into the...
