In New Zealand, where dog ownership among residents is only 25% (compared to 65% in the USA) Dachshunds are becoming very popular, according to an ABC report. Why? Because they’re clean, small and portable. Plus, they act much bigger than they are. Kiwis are a very horsy set, too, which is a natural for winer dogs (just go to any English riding competition and you’ll see them cavorting with Jack Russells and Corgis galore).
Go, little Doxies, go!
