Hello! I adopted what I thought was a mini dachshund x standard dachshund from a family local to me. When it was smaller (met it at 8 weeks), I didn't even question it and I completely fell in love with one of the pups and agreed to adopt it when it was ready. The family seemed lovely, I met the Mum (who was indeed a mini dachshund) and they showed me a photo of the 'father', a black standard dachshund. This is my first dog so maybe I was a bit naive. However, I'm perfectly happy with the pup. He is now 12 weeks, adorable and has the sweetest temperament and loves everyone he meets. I've only had him a week. However, everyone I've met has said he has 100% got something else mixed in there. Some said Jack Russell, some believe it could be a bigger dog. It's no issue to me and I'm going to give him a loving home regardless. I'm really just curious and would like to research the cross so I can try to understand him even better! The pictures attached were taken this week! Any thoughts? His muzzle doesn't seem to be as long/thin as dachshunds and his paws are huge. His ears are maybe slightly shorter too? He does have the short legs/long body thing going on, just not as much as I'd expected. He is quite muscular.
