We had a Dachshund / Corgie mix for a little while and he liked to chase the cats. The thing was, he just wanted to play, so once the kitties made it known "No! Bad puppy!" he left them alone. We had one cat who'd sometimes play with him and it was pretty cute to see his face light up when she came into the room. You could see him thinking "Play? Maybe? Yes? Play!!" She'd either reach out and bop him, letting him know it was on, or just keep walking, depending on her mood.
I had a Corgi. I really wish I could see a Corgi/Doxie mix...and to watch the breeding roots in action, a herder and a chaser! I laugh at the idea of the personality traits of the breed taking over. Some entertainment! My corgi was best pals with the cat. There's always going to be some "arguing" as the pets in the household establish the pecking order and boundaries, but puppies tend to grow on everyone pretty fast.
He looked like that Mama dog, but with short hair. That's what they said he was, anyway. We got him from a rescue so nobody really knew for sure but apparently that's what their vets thought.
Thanks for sharing! I got "Chihuahua" out of that picture - probably the ears. Did a lot of people ask if he was a Chihuahua mix? My Corgi was purebred, but not a known breed, at least at the time, and people thought he was a German shepherd/Dachshund mix (hair and short legs). He would instinctively herd people. In the morning if you were in a hurry to get ready and rushing around, he'd be nipping at your ankles. It was entertaining to watch at family gatherings, when a bunch of little kids would be running around, and he would attempt to herd them. I would have to go collect him. He was taught not to run off by my then boyfriend's lab. We would attach a leash to connect the two dogs. Poor "Brody," but "Brody" never ran off. Good times, good memories.
He's probably too big to be a Chihuahua mix. We thought maybe part MinPin, actually, based on his markings and ears. He is stinkin' cute, I know that! Sadly we didn't get to keep him because it turned out he did not
like little boys. He went to a close friend of mine whose daughters are grown. They have a Basset Hound who became his instant best friend.
Okay, yeah, I just did a google image search for "minpin dachshund mix" and that is exactly
what he looked like!
