Pretty easy and required for membership: Do you own a Dachshund or a Dachshund-mix? What is his/her name?

Her Name Matilda Mae..Yes shes a mini doxie no papers but I adopted her and in a way her adoption saved her life! I got her when she was 9 months...all skin n bones (4.2lbs!!!!) took her to vet and he checked her out and said just feed her 4 times a day(puppy chow) for the 1st week 3 the next and now we are down to 2 1/4 cup of small breed food a day and let me tell you shes a whopping 8.4 lbs!!! ive had her 8 months. She stopped scarving her food down and has turned into a loyal companion.

Is he/she current and up-to-date on all vaccines? Is he/she spayed/neutered? (just for group info so no one is surprised at a meetup)

She is up to date on all shots. She is spayed!

Is your dog social with humans and other dogs, or are you currently *working* on his/her social skills?

Shes social but barks. I think a lot of it was due to her being abused before i got her. She loves other dogs after warming up to them. She has a bloodhound as a friend and enjoyed playing with a pug while i was on vacation with her.

What area of town are you located in? Are there any (small) dog friendly areas, parks, outdoor restaurants in your area that you know of? If yes, please list them below:

Im in Katy. We have a bark park.

Are you interested in helping to schedule/organize Meetup get-togethers with other Dachshund Owners?

Id love tips on stopping her chewing and barking...a fly will buzz by and she will think im kidding? I dont like using pain(hard spankings) to make her stop(honestly the spanks dont curb the barking..just makes her look very sad and at times she will cower when you talk sternly and if u raise your hand when you do that she is wide eye and tucks her tail) I hve never ever beaten her yet she acts like i will or have. Mostly I will say her name sternly and she comes running to me for kisses. I dont want her to be spoiled but i dont want her to be hurt either...any pointers id gladly accept!


Hi I am Megen(meg-in) I am the mom to a 17 month old mini Doxie named Matilda Mae(aka Tilly). Although most would say she answered to anything but this gal is a black and tan smooth coat doxie with lovely chocolate eyes.

What Megen is saying about this Meetup Group

Do ya'll think there will be another meet up soon? I think Matilda is ready to meet other doxies and Im thinking I'd enjoy learning more info about my baby's breed. I dont think shes pure bred, i rescued her when she was 9 months old... Shes now 3! I really enjoy the info you all have posted thanks!
