|Welcome the new member of the family!|
Last June 18, we had a new puppy. Thanks to my buddy Carl Angelo. A really energetic dog ruled the backyard and somehow bits of wood grains and Styrofoam scattered the floor next day. With this we named him "Little Hitler".. He shall be an adorable canine with an active personality and huge appetite. Lets's get to know this Sausage looking dog shall we?
|Always hungry little dog|
Hitler, a two-months old canine, is a Dachshund dog. It's famous for its long and low body structure. It basically originated from the name "Badger dog" in the 1600's in Germany. Such dog was intentionally bred to chase and fight Badgers and other creatures that dwell in a burrow. Dachshunds come in standard and miniature size. It may also vary in coat such as Smooth, Wire-haired and Long-haired.

This Sausage dog is known for its keen sense of smell. It is also active but more stubborn at times. They are also loyal and clever as well. Dachshunds ranked 9 in the world's most popular dogs in the Dog Breeds List (Labrador Retriever, German Shepherd, Beagle, Golden Retriever, Yorkshire Terrier, Bulldog, Boxer, Poodle, Dachshund and Rottweiler).

|"How I love this fake bone. LOL"|
Dachshund dogs are prone to back problems. This is due to their long spine and short rib cage which basically lacks enough support. They must be fed with just the right amount amount of food in order to avoid obesity which breaks their spine. A Dachshund may live up to 16 years if treated and cared properly.
|"Seriously, I need to consume this bone but I can't".. It's Fake Hitler you can't eat that LOL.|
Not only normal citizens enjoy the company of this adorable breed but also some of the most renowned people in history (source: Dacshund Dog Owners).
- John F. Kennedy (35th US President) had a Dachshund named Dunker which he bought while touring at Europe in 1937 with then girlfriend Olivia.
- Pablo Picasso (influential Artist of the 20th century) had a Dachshund pet named Lump which is believed to be an inspiration to some of his artworks.
- Andy Warhol (Pop-art movement leading figure) had two Dachshunds namely Archie and Amos which he portrayed in his works as well.
- William Randolph Hearst (American newspaper publisher) loved his Dachshund Helena that he even eulogized her in his column "In the News".
- Marie Prevost (Canadian actress) had a Dachshund named Maxie. The actress died of acute alcoholism in which her dog tried to awaken her with continuous barks that later summoned the neighbors to the scene.
"Dachshunds are definitely one of the best lifetime companion!"
