I have a dachshund, and I can confirm that they need a lot of exercise. They're a working breed, they're hunting dogs, not lap dogs! But as long as you're willing to get to know your daxie well and understand his specific behaviour, they'll become very attached, obedient and loyal.

Few people actually plan ahead when they get a dog, which is sad because people are often temped by the cute puppy

I think this is especially true with Huskies

Yeah and I can understand it, they look so cute and fluffy but then they turn into a huge pile of work and most people just want one to cuddle with :D which is obviously not ok :/ if you want a dog you need to lookup the type and how they act, not just how they look

People who expect dogs to be polite little stuffed animals with no effort on their part just piss me off to no end. My boyfriend's sister, after being rejected from adopting from a shelter, bought a German Shepherd puppy (and keep in mind, she made her parents buy a wolf hybrid when she was a teenager and left it because she couldn't crate it all day when she moved out). She claims her roommates abused it but in reality, she never bothered to train and socialize it so it became skittish and aggressive. Things came to a head over one Christmas when they were all planning on coming to our house and she told us that WE needed to keep our kids away from her dog IN OUR HOUSE so he wouldn't get stressed out and bite them. I said NO. First off...we HAVE dogs and this is THEIR house. Maybe ASK if it's ok to bring your dog first. Second, your dog can stay in the backyard if it's aggressive. Our house wasn't big enough to keep our kids separated from the dog inside and it's not my responsibility to watch out for your dog in my house. She ended up not coming because she didn't want to leave her dog outside. Sorry. I have a Lab/GSD mix and I worked DAMN hard training and socializing her. I still work hard. I will not be cowed by someone who can't be bothered to do the same for their dogs.
