"This is our very first pet, Anushka. We got her when she was only 2 months old. She is a cross between a Westie and a Dachshund. She is a very lovable house pet and never runs out of energy, especially at night. Anushka is a nocturnal creature, by the way; sleeps mostly during the day and plays at night when is she is very hyper!!!"

Description

The West Highland Doxie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Dachshund and the Westie. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
