so my daughter and i just rescued a dachshund pup. he's 6 or 7 months old. not small but still teething. i brought him home for the first time and the first thing he saw was the chicken run. he perked right up but we brought him straight inside. anyway, i agreed to keep him before i looked into the breed and realized what small prey hunters they are. my chickens are pretty secure in their yard, after all we do coyotes and bobcats and neighborhood strays who want to eat the ladies. but am i making a terrible decision keeping this dog (that we are already in love with)? it seems to me there are a lot of dachshund owners here on BYC and i guess i am just looking for advice. all of you out there who have doxies that live in peace with your chickens: did you train them or are they naturally docile? any input appreciated.
