I have a 3 month old purebred dachshund. He is super cute and tiny. Mom passed away and he was hand raised. Very affectionate! The mom was 6lbs and dad was 5lbs. He was the smallest one, and luckily he survived. He is a strong little guy, and an absolute fighter. I am very attached to him, but I am unable to keep him. Linus , named after his love of blankets and cuddling, loves to play! He loves my kids, my cat, and my ginormous weimaraner. He can sit for treats, we are working on shake, and he uses the potty pad! Linus is crate trained as well and if the crate is open, you can usually find him in his crate cuddled up with his blanket!
Being that he was the runt, Linus is currently very small. Just over 2lbs. The vet thinks he will stay around 5lbs. Linus looks skinny, especially compared to his sister, but the vet said he is fine. I use extra fortifier and vitamins in his food, I even let him eat alone. He doesn't gain much weight.
