I have a Daschund, she is 2 and has had one litter and is going to have a second May 22nd. I bred her with a Pom and was woundering if anyone has any info on how they will look or any pictures. I have tred to find some photos online but haven't had any luck. I don't think it's very popular mix.
Sophie is half dachshund/half Pomeranian mix. Not to worry, they're adorable! (see how cute she is)
I live in Michigan and would like to purchase a dameranian. Do you know of any breeders in my area? I've been unsuccessful in finding anyone on the internet.

Hi Daisy and Family, You are a cutie! I am from TN also, around Bristol area.
One good indicator is the paws. The dogs usually grow into them. Or if you know the parents, take a good look.
I am sure you will love your pup no matter what size. Cute picture of a cute dog.
My vet confirmed that you can estimated a puppy's adult weight by taking their 8 weeks weight and mulitping by 3 or their 12 week weight and multiply by 2. This will give you a very close estimate of their adult weight. My puppy was 6 lbs. at 12 weeks so her adult weight should be about 12 lbs. Hope this helps.

Radar is about 12 years old and is 1/2 Pom-1/2 Doxie. We bought him from a family friend For fun, he likes to be the boss! He was hurt 5 years ago from ice falling from the roof of a porch, he lost the use of his hind legs. We didn't want to put him to sleep because of our love for him. My oldest son who lives with me made a cart for him from a old baby buggy frame. He has been on wheels now since February 2004 and still going strong.

Cute little dog. His front looks a lot like mine.
Beautiful dog, so happy he has caring people who have enabled him to lead a loved and happy life. Best of luck, may he love long.
God bless you and your family! your son is very imaginative and caring to take the time to create the little cart for your dog. I'm sure the dog appreciates it. NOw he can get around and enjoy life!
How wonderful that this precious pooch has a loving family to take care of "all" his needs! Terrific story! Thanks for sharing it with us Thrifty Funners.
When even pets are considered "throw-away" by so many in our society, it is so heartwarming to see someone who loves their pet enough to go the extra mile. Thank you.
I have heard of animals having wheels before but what makes Radar's story so great is your family's love for him, your appreciation of a beings life and your son's ingenuity! God Bless You All! A huge thumbs up!
And I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I adore your babies name! He definitely has 'radar' to have chosen such a loving family to share his life with; I sincerely believe our pets choose us ;-)
Radar is one valiant pup! Your family is to be commended for giving him the means and the care he needs, along with a whole lotta love. You are truly one special family!

You go Radar!
Good for you! You have a wonderful family that loves you so much. Glad to hear you have been going strong for 5 years -- hoping for so many more! May God bless you and everyone who surrounds you with so much love.
Love, Harry & my Mom
God bless you. What can I say that has not been expressed. We need more people like you that sincerely care for animals. Way to go.
Radar is a cute name for such a cute happy doggie. Your son should market those or at least contact the local vet and make some for him. What a great idea to make this to give Radar freedom to roam around. God bless you and your family for being so kind and wonderful to your Radar. Hugsnkisses to Radar.
Angel was 14 years old when she passed away on March 23,2009. She was a longhaired Dachshund and Pomeranian mix. I was nursing in Southern California and became friends with the granddaughter of one of my patients. She owned the parents of the puppies that were to be born and said I needed one! I saw her at 1 day old and brought her home at 6 weeks old. She weighed 19 1/2 ounces!
She was raised with my 20 pound cat named Tyrone. He taught her to use the litter box and she taught him how to play hide and seek and how to love puppies! She worked every day with me in the hospital and visited with young and old, those in bed due to surgery, physical therapy or even I.V. therapy. She had her own folder in the admin. office and nurses, physicians and even inspectors knew her by name and they all loved her. If you are ever blessed with a Angel like mine you will be able to touch the lives of those around you.

Excellent story of Angel and how she has made a big difference in the workplace toward others. Angel left a lot of loving paw prints in people's hearts even after her passing. That'll never be forgotten for being one of God's little helpers.
Looks just like my little guy Jibby, they're great pets.
It's so sad to lose a loving friend! Beautiful picture.
Jack is an 8 month old Pomeranian/Dachshund mix. We got Jack from a woman whose kids were allergic to him. They had gotten him from our local Adopt-A-Pet center. Jack loves to play with empty plastic water bottles, the cat, and loves to chase frogs. Jack likes to snuggle under the covers to take a nap. He is so loving and adorable and has made a wonderful addition to our family.
Chewy is 2 years old and a Pomeranian/Dachshund. We got him in Dec 2009, he was such a tiny little dog with HUGE ears! Chewy loves to play with his "brother," Mason.

Sophie is 17 months old. She is a Pomeranian - Dachshund mix. I got her through a classified ads on May 3, 2008. Sophie likes to wrestle with her pal, Ben. Ben is a 1/2 border collie, 1/2 Aussie male dog. He adores Sophie.
What would I do without her? She is everything to me! She is the most loving dog. I have spinal stenosis and it is very painful. Sophie cheers me up and helps me manage my pain.

Heisman Tebow Green is a 17 month old Pomeranian/Dachshund mix. I got him from my parents December 29, 2007 for my daughter's 18th Birthday.
He likes to chase any moving object. He is smart, funny, and handsome. He is amazing.
By Heisman's Mommy from Gainesville, FL
He looks like a little peanut when he was a pup. Who couldn't fall in love with that little fluff ball. Cutie pie!
Ahhh, he's so sweet. He has a pretty little face.
I have a little dachshund mix that is mixed with chihuahua. It is so cute too, I love that they are so cuddly and such good alarm dogs! Here is a pic of our "Banjo": (she always has this expression on her face. It's hard to not give her anything she wants.)
Heisman is a precious sweetie! I love that photo of him lying on his back and covering his face. I have a dachshund/beagle female that is the love of my life! She is a cuddly lapbaby who doesn't know she's over 14 years old. Give Heisman a big hug and kiss from Missy's mom and God bless you.
Heisman looks like a real cutie. I have a Pug named Hamlet and can't tell you the joy he has added to my life. Pets really do love us unconditionally!
Does anyone in the Gainesville area breed these pups? I'm in the beer business and Mickey came to us as an 8 week old on a teuckload of Michelob Ultra (hence the name!). My dad would love to find a pup like him for his home. When I saw Heisman and Ginger's pics I finally figured out Mickey's "heritage." Thanks.
I got him off Craigslist at 9 weeks. He loves tennis balls! He really loves to cuddle.
Hank is a 7 year old Long Haired Dachshund/Pomeranian mix I got 3 years ago from an animal rescue agency, Hank likes to chase squirrels and cats. Run through grass. Dance for treats. Nap in his bed.
I found her online, I forget what website, but I got her in 2010. She has long wire hair, long body, short legs, and weighs about 20-25 pounds. Shedding is minimal.

It is fun to watch them run the fields together they are so different. This little guy will always come back for more thinking he is the biggest and baddest of all dogs ever created. Yet he watches over our g'baby every time she visits like he is the best gentlest nanny ever. This dog is a delight to all who meets him, and I have to tell people daily "no you can't have our Hey you". (03/09/2009)
Hayden is such a joy to have in the house. She is full of life, she cuddles with you when she's tired, she's always there by your side. She has gotten better with being left alone, but still cries a bit when we first leave. She is doing very well with her training. She is fully potty trained now and asks to go outside to do her business. She is learning new tricks very quickly. She loves to give kisses and have her head behind her ears rubbed. I couldn't ask for a better companion. This picture is Hayden at 11 1/2 weeks old. (07/18/2009)
