Doxie-Pin Breed Maintenance
Both the Dachshund and the Miniature Pinscher are considered low to moderate shedders, and the Doxie-Pin will not shed much. However, this hybrid is not a hypoallergenic dog. Regular brushing will keep this hybrid looking and feeling well, and bathing is not recommended due to the sensitivity of their skin. Instead of a full bath, some owners choose to use a warm washcloth or wet wipe designed for dogs to remove any mud, dirt, or other substances. This designer dog inherits the larger, floppy ears of the Dachshund parent and will require cleaning to remove any dirt, debris, or wax. Regular teeth cleaning will also prevent gum and tooth disease and keep your dog’s teeth and breath clean.
Doxie-Pins often suffer from intervertebral disc degeneration, cataracts, and other major health concerns. Secure pet health insurance today to avoid high veterinary care costs.
