I have a 1.5 year old basset hound. We are looking to get a second dog. We were looking dachshund or other small weight small breed dogs. Has anyone done that. Our concern is the size of our basset playing with a small breed dog.
My runt of the litter basset played well with all breeds. He did take a female black lab to task over stealing his beef knuckle. He grabbed her head, rotated it 90 degrees and held it until she whimpered. Only needed to do it once. She had 25 lbs on him.
Our Rufus had 65lbs on our 2nd little dog when we brought him from the shelter. We had the same concerns. It took about 30 minutes before the little one let Roofer know he wasn’t gonna be pushed around. They were best buddies after that.
