Marley the Mini Dachshund


Puppy Breed: Unknown

Marley's mom says: Marley is a longhaired English cream miniture dachshund. English cream dachshunds have been around for quite a while; they were imported from England. I have always wanted an English cream dachsie, and the breeder I buy my pups from had this tiny little boy, and my husband and I fell in love with him immediately. Marley has the most wonderful temprament, he basically just loves life. Marley has added so much enjoyment to our family, it seems he is always doing something to make us laugh. His favorite thing is to play with his four other dachshund brothers, running wide open through the house chasing them. Sometimes the tables turn and they chase him. I started showing Marley at six months of age. Showing has always been something I've wanted to try, and our first time in the ring Marley won Best of Breed. Needless to say I was somewhat surprised since he had never stepped foot into a show ring prior to six months of age. He loves to show and he always does his very best. I couldn't ask him to do a better job. Once I put his show lead on him it's like he turns into a different dog. It's almost as if he knows what is expected of him, kind of like a therapy dog or service dog. I show only for fun, and once Marely is no longer having fun or seems disinterested, that's when I will stop.
