If you mix a Dachshund and a Labrador Retriever, then you’ll get the Dachsador. This crossbreed is also sometimes known as Doxidors, Doxadors, or Weinerdors. They’re active and friendly dogs who are social and love to cuddle. So if you’re looking for a new furry friend, then look no further than Dachsador puppies.
Where To Get Dachsador Puppies
You can find this doggo where ever you can adopt dogs. But, first, try your local animal shelter or breed-specific rescue. They may have Dachsador puppies available for adoption or have adults or seniors. It’s always a good idea to try these places first so you can save a dog’s life. Woody…
However, if you have your heart set on finding a Dachsador puppy and want to know their background (such as their family tree and health history), then you can go through a reputable breeder. Unfortunately, since this pooch is a designer dog, which means it’s a mixed breed, the breed isn’t recognized by the American Kennel Club. So, you can’t use the AKC as a source to find good breeders.
You can still find ethical breeders through other means and breed clubs, though. Also, research each breeder you come across. Remember, a good breeder will always do the following:
- Want to meet with you in person so you can meet them, the parents, and the puppies
- Ensure the puppies are up to date on all their vaccinations
- Will have the dogs and puppies living in their home as part of the family, being socialized and trained
- Be able to answer all questions you have about the breeder, the breed, the process, the parents, or the litter
- Health screen the parents before breeding and then health screen and genetically test the puppies
In addition, the breeder will have health documents for you to take home. Plus, they’ll be available to you after you bring home the puppy (after they’re at least eight weeks old) in case you have questions or need help with anything.
If a breeder doesn’t do those things, then you might have come across a puppy mill or backyard breeder. These breeders should be avoided since they only care about making a profit. For instance, one red flag is that they’ll drastically increase the price of the puppies more than what they typically go for. Luna…
You can expect to spend anywhere between $500 and $1,000 for this doggo. But, of course, the more in-demand this pooch is, the higher the price will be.
The Dachsador is a medium-sized dog. They can stand to be about 12 to 25 inches tall and weigh between 30 to 40 pounds. They’ll typically come in one solid color, taking after both parent breeds. So, this doggo can have a coat color that’s chocolate, brown, black, or yellow. Sir_maximus…
Despite its size, the Dachsador is an adaptable pup that will do well in an apartment. However, they will thrive in a bigger home with a fenced-in yard of high energy levels. In addition, they’ll need ample physical activity every day, such as a long walk, jog, or hike. You can also bring them t the dog park once in a while. Or, if you’re going to be out all day, be sure to hire a professional dog walker to check in on them or send them to doggy daycare for the day.
Luckily, this doggo is friendly and social. For instance, they’re affectionate with their family members and are great with children. However, they also enjoy the company of other dogs and meeting new people.
Dachsador Puppies – Veterinary Needs
Be sure to bring your pooch to the vet frequently during their first year. This will keep them up to date on their shots. Also, you can be sure that your doggo is growing and developing correctly. Then, for each year after that, you’ll only need to bring your doggo to the vet once a year for their annual checkup. With proper care, this mixed breed has an average lifespan of about 12 to 14 years. Jack…
This hybrid is prone to inheriting some health issues from its parents. Some health conditions they can get are listed below:
- Hip Dysplasia
- Back Problems
- Eye Conditions
You can feed your Dachsador anything that your vet approves. Your vet will be able to help you decide on the best dieting options for your new furry friend. Be sure the dog food is appropriate for their breed size, age, and weight. They’ll do well with high-quality kibble or canned food from commercial dog food brands, or you can make them homemade dog food or dog treats.
Typically, the Dachsador will have a short to medium coat that’s dense and wiry. As a result, they don’t require too much grooming and won’t need baths often, only if they get into something they weren’t supposed to.
However, this pooch sheds quite a bit, so you’ll want to keep up with brushing their coat once or twice per week. In addition, be sure to keep up with trimming their nails, cleaning their ears, and brushing their teeth.
