little weenie dogs will rip and shred at you.
This next part is not directed to anyone who has ever put dog discrimination DOWN and stood up for what they believe in, but it is directed to the people that believe that a dog’s whole breed is ‘evil’ because of their personal experiences. I don’t get mad. Those of you who know me, you know that I don’t like to pick fights. I do not challenge higher power. But I am SICK AND TIRED of people calling Dachshunds evil. So there.
Please don't smack me down. Don't break me for this. DACHSHUNDS ARE NOT EVIL!!!!!!!!!
When people see a dachshund, they think 'Toy Dog', how cute! Doxies are not toy dogs. They want to be treated with respect and dignity. You know, Labs bite, Border Collies bite, Golden Retrievers bite... all dogs bite. Any dog will bit if given the chance. People say doxies are evil. My fish is evil. It bit me and drew blood. DOXIES are not evil. Sorry, but it disgusts me so much that you could just say that Doxies are evil. Seriously, I hope you realize what a stereotype you just made. You just told me that Doxies are evil little creatures that will bite anything they see. Dachshunds are notoriously timid around strangers. They have bad backs that they feel the need to protect. But they are loyal, wonderful dogs. I have one. And I am proud. And my dog, that wonderful, wonderful dog, that dachshund, did bite someone. But that does not make him evil. And hear this: no, he did not attack her. He was sleeping in his bed and she reached down and started petting his back when he was asleep. He did the natural reaction any dog would do: he scared off the predator that was going for his weak spot. Now tell me, does that make him evil? Does my dog protecting himself make him evil? He didn’t even bite the girl hard, just barely broke her skin. One teeny, tiny little puncture. And you know what he did. He felt remorse. We yelled at him from kingdom come right after he did that. And he cowered down and slunk outside.
And as I write this, he sleeps on my feet. He is 10 ½ years old. He had back surgery at age 5 to repair a herniated disk. He is the most loyal and wonderful dog anyone could ever ask for. I love him. So think again before you slap down a breed, especially dachshunds. It is not the breed. It is the dog. And dachshunds do not like strangers. Does a person who is shy evil? No. So today, think about this: what makes a dog evil?
Please don’t come hounding down on me for my statements. I simply feel very strongly about the misconception of dachshunds.
Thank you for your time.
