    We just adopted a second Dachshund yesterday. Her name is Cinnamon. She is a 2 year old red mini weighing 12 pounds. We got her from a local rescue organization called Diamond Dachshund of Texas. After sending in an application and a home visit by Diamond Dachshund representatives, they found just the right Dachshund for us who gets along great with our Vinny. Now Vinny has a play mate and already having a great time wrestling around with Cinnamon.

    Conrats, Doug and Vinny.:)

    What a happy face. I love the spots on Cinnamon's ears.
    She is one lucky dog.
    I wish more people would use rescue orgs. to adopt their breed of choice.

    That's awesome Chris! I would like to get another Dachshund, but I am afraid that mine wouldn't have any part of it.

    I'll tell you. The experience was fantastic. First we filled out an application asking about our home and current dog (Vinny). Then they came to our house and asked us more questions and to meet with Vinny.

    After that, they went back into their pool of about 50 dachshunds rescued from various shelters and homes and chose 3 to meet Vinny. We met with the founder of Diamond Dachshund (Christina) at a neurtral location where Vinny was introduced to the 3 dogs one at a time. Christina observed the interactions and recommended Cinnamon. After we got her home with Vinny, they immediately started playing with eachother and working out their differences in doggy language. It was really quite fun to watch. Now they are pretty much a pair and difficult to separate.

    Cinnamon is spayed, has all her shots and microchiped. After a one week probation period, we will send Diamond Dachshund the $175 fee and be done. Much better (and cheaper) then buying from a pet store and it's also not a crapshoot on what kind of dog you get. Diamond Dachshund really strives to make sure the dogs find good homes.

    DO NOT FEAR!!! We had the same worries. The lady told us that it's never impossible to match your dog with another dog. It might take a few times but it can be done. It's absolutely wonderful having two of them!

    I'm impressed with Diamond Dachshund, that they use a neutral location for the intro, very important.
    I used to conduct dog training classes for many years, and it was the owners that appreciated dog behaviour (versus thinking that their dog should behave as a human) that had gereater success in their traing, and were happier with their pet.
    I like that you recognized that dogs have their own social interactive behaviour and just let them be dogs and let them do what dogs do.:joy:

    I love my wiener(dog):grin: He is the best dog that I ever had. It is pretty funny if he is around a bigger dog, he thinks he is the biggest bad ass that ever walked the planet:lol:
