Living with a Schweenie

Temperament: Very friendly, would chew your hand when playing but never growls or snaps aggresively.

Family Dog: She's not very interested in children until they start making noises or running around and then it becomes a game.

Grooming: Sheds quite a bit so brushing is required from time to time to minimise stray hairs.

Training: Very quick at learning and picking up new tricks but difficult to house train.

Exercise: We probably walk her more than she needs but she just loves playing. She would run till she dropped!!

Feet: Front feet are bigger than her back, a dachshund characteristic to help with digging.
