This is my new buddy Hamilton! We met 5 weeks ago at the SPCA. He's 13 weeks old now, and about 7 lbs. He's a Dachshund mystery mix. Feel free to take some guesses! My only other clues as to his blend are that his fur is thick and velvety - not slick and shiny like a short haired doxie; and one of his sisters had markings like a rat terrier. He's a super fast learner, and a dopey snuggle bum. Our best guess is part dachshund, part vampire piranha.

First day home! He was a hair under 4 lbs then.


He's longish and stubbyish


He dragged his bed out of his crate and to the middle of the floor and crashed out.


Sit? Good boy!


Posing


His favorite place to sleep


HATES THE SNOW! (And his sweater I made)


Loves spring weather! And sticks!


We got him a "couch" for the living room so he'd stop dragging his bed over.


His "friend" Sir Didymus.

Wow, he really is a cutie. I see more Corgi than anything else. Did the rescue have the mother? Was she a Doxie?

The shelter just had the pups, and very little info. His one sister was dapple and looked a lot like a doxie. His other sister looked a lot like a rat terrier. Then there's him!

He is just too cute! I don't have any breed guesses but whatever he is he sure looks happy.

He is a cute little thing! I see the Doxie for sure ... but I see Terrier in the face and the eyes. :)

Here are a few of my current favorites...

He loves being in the brambles on the side of the house.


This was yesterday. He is getting SO (9lbs) BIG!


He likes to nap on me when I'm at the computer (actually he's doing it right now).


Snoozin' on me... again


Interacting with Sir Didymus the cat


He woke up from a nap with his ears inside out!

I see terrier in the face too. I kind of see beagle, but I think it's just the ears making me think that and they probably come from the doxie side. My guess would be doxie/terrier mix. Very cute little guy. :)
