It’s the return of Davy Jones. I love his name, and he takes a good picture. Davy Jones is one of our newest friends and I look forward to seeing more of him. Davy Jones’ human said he can be cantankerous around other dogs when we first met, but I assured her many dachshunds often get along just fine with other dachshunds. It’s not my place to understand or explain the science behind it, but I can bear witness to it after years of interacting with so many different dachshunds. They love (or at least tolerate) their own breed. Some dachshunds charge big dogs, others seemingly go after white fluffy dogs and even yet some seem to be put out by the flat-faced breeds, but when a doxie is around another doxie they all seem to get along just fine most of the time. I personally love seeing other dachshunds play with dachshunds. For me it warms the heart and makes me smile big. How about you and yours!?

  1. Davy Doxie's Person says:

    His expressions here say it all and completely support the “doxie-doxie play” theory. It’s true!! I’ve rarely seen him happier than during his recent outings with Rufus, Emily Sue, Lily, and his other new doxie friends! ❤

    I agree since my doxie seems to tolerate other breeds but enjoys being around other doxies. Having said that however, it’s ironic for me to admit that last week he was bit by the male doxie next door while barking at the female in her new sweater. Maybe Rufus, Lily and Emily would make him feel more welcome.

    • Awe. Sorry to hear that. Which doxie was wearing the sweater – the biter or the one who got bit!? Dogs in clothing can be confusing when in “packs.” I love dressing my pups up ALL the TIME but never in public dog parks or when around other dogs because it can confuse some. I think they get confused and think this dog dressed up is a toy or something. Dog bits happen and it’s never fun but.. a bite from another dachshund is significantly better than a bit from a big dog i.e., like a pitbull, bull dog or other bully breed. Hoping for better doxie on doxie experiences April. 🙂

  3. I have two dachshunds (both standards) and they have two dachshund friends. One is a mini and the other is a standard. It’s like a party when they all get together. I have three other dogs and they don’t even try to get in on it. When these four are together, the rest of the world does not exist (except maybe a human throwing a ball or carrying a bag of treats). It’s the dachshund way! Lol!

  4. It is funny to hear that other dachshund owners have noticed the same trait in that they do at least tolerate other dachshunds. I have been owned by many dachshunds over the years and have seen this trait play out time and time again. Weird that they know their own breed! Cute little man- Nice meeting you Davy Jones 🙂
