Dachshunds, a popular breed of dog, have both pros and cons. Some pros include their loyalty, intelligence, and size, making them suitable for small spaces. However, they can also be stubborn and hard to train. One notable health problem afflicting dachshunds is intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), which can lead to paralysis. Potential owners should be aware of these pros and cons, as well as the health problem, before deciding to get a Dachshund.
