A Dachshund puppy who was watching his mother and a friend “horsing around” did not laugh at the boy’s fake kick to his mother. When the puppy sees his mother being “attacked,” he drops his toy and rushes to her defense, even chasing the man away.
Dachshunds are extremely brave dogs, even at such a young age!
For the record, this is not a behavior that dog owners should encourage because it trains a dog to be annoying at best and aggressive at worst.
Having said that, the puppy clearly has strong protective instincts for his mother and is a brave fellow for standing up for her. What are your thoughts?
