Hi! I just had to respond when I read your post because we have a beautiful 2-1/2 year old bully named Trooper and a 6-month-old miniature long-haired dapple dachshund named Chip (we also have a 9-yr-old Rottie mix & a 7-yr-old rescue wire-haired dachshund). Trooper is 65 lbs of solid muscle & Chip is 5 lbs of solid energy & attitude and they have gotten along great since the day we brought Chip home only weighing 2-1/2 lbs!!! Chip has never been intimidated by Trooper and Trooper has always been very easy w/Chip. If Trooper is playing with a toy & Chip wants it, he just goes right up & takes it away while Trooper has this puzzled look on his face! It's too funny!!! We love, love, love all our fur babies & they all get along great and I'm sure when the time comes, you'll have no problem with a bully & a doxie!!! Here are pics of Trooper & Chip...
Omg I love these babies! You really have put much thought into this, I think that is the best part. When the time comes you will be so happy, the wait will have been worth it for sure! Welcome aboard! Dont have a dachshund but I was terrified when we brought Mugsy the pug home at 8 weeks. I knew Cutty would squish him or something. Nope. He did however slobber him a bit much for a couple days. He literally was soaked, it was funny. They are best friends to this day although thier play has mellowed, they both went crazy wrestling for a long time.
Can you imagine the holiday cards you'll be able to make with a big bullie and a slick little doxie? Adorable. I'd say start shopping for matching Santa hats or yarmulkes right now....as long as you are the pack leader, it doesn't matter the size of the pack members! They have to respect the behavior you ask for.
@winerdogfan Tootsie is so cute!!! I too love dachshunds. My parents have a mini doxie (who incidentally is a long haired dapple like @tlc6487's Chip!) named Coco. She was about 9 months when we got Chunk, he was 2 years old. They hit it off from the beginning! He tends to be in charge but he's so gentle with her! When she wanted to play and he had enough, he would either ignore her or gently put his head on her belly (she always lays down and wriggles in front of him to try to get him to join in) as if to say, "no more". They are best buddies (we are over there very often). So I'd say however you do it will be fine!
Here they are in their Halloween sweatshirts this year (usually I dress them up but being pregnant, I just didn't have it in me this year)
Just hanging around
Halloween two years ago (Coco hadn't learned "sit" at that point. My parents weren't in a rush to train her. Lol)
Chunk's birthday last year
Unfortunately, I don't have any great pics of them because they won't sit still at the same time! Typical. Lol

You have all made me feel so good and I love the pictures!!! As you can tell I am so excited but very willing to wait because I am enjoying my Tootsie. Tootsie is a sweetie pie with us and she will enjoy another dog if it is calm, they can smell each other, and then it can go away. Her playing days are over. She does enjoy a good game of ball though. If her food or her bone is around though.... CLEAR OUT.... She will go after any animal that comes near. She once attacked a seventy five pound Australian Cattle dog over her bone. It wasn't savage but she did lunge underneath the bigger dog and started nipping at it's legs. The bigger dog, thank God was a sweet dog and she sat on her...end of fight. Tootsie was left a little squashed, her dignity a little hurt, but no worse for the wear.:hahaha:
PS... I'm going to continue to be an active member and ask questions and join into conversations. Thank you all.
