I have a mini doxie, smooth black haired, 5 yrs old. She is as nutty as I call myself!(no we are not nuts so dont anyone get all mad).
She is my best friend and good company. Watch the food, they look small but eat like elephants.
Also, babyproof every place she has access to. Get her/him spayed as soon as the vet says ok, they are calmer that way. Never leave her outside alone(we get coyotes).
This is a GREAT idea, just have patience, they look all cutsie but they are a handful!!!
I am a Certified Doxie Lover(Weinerdogs)
