The dachshund is the perfect companion for a man of the world. He is a stubborn and often lazy as his master, likes food, sleeping but is also a passionate hunter. Famous owners were: Pablo Picasso, Clint Eastwood, Marlon Brando, Paul Newman and a bevy of royals (not that a dachshund would care). Be aware, the dachshund might be small but he has a fierce temper and does not take kindly to being treated like a Malteser or whatever other tiny breeds there are. He will gladly take your arm off.
