When I adopted him, he was bald from his shoulders to his tail, severely underweight, under-socialized and reactive to other dogs, after being in the shelter for almost a month as an unclaimed stray with an unregistered microchip.
Thanks also to Brad Briscoe with San Lorenzo Dog Training Club for all his outstanding Conformation training/handling advice to get Benny ready for the ring
I think everybody should have a Dachshund in their life at one time or another. Nothing is complete until a person spends a lot of time with a member of this breed.
And, I would like to thank Olivia Hsia for her expect handling of Benny in the Best in Show class while I handled Palo, the winner of the Best Mixed Breed class.
