We were very impressed with Achilles. We like his conformation - he has really nice proportions with good length of legs. His topline is beautiful, and his shoulders and front are very correct. His body type is ideal for a working dachshund. This is a feisty, self-confident puppy with great resilience. Even though Bella is older and bigger than he is, Achilles played with her as an equal. They had a ball together.
|Achilles is winning this round.|
|And this one!|
|This is a pretty self-contained, self-sufficient puppy. He inspected all the toys and played by himself very well too.|
|He shook the black bear toy and "killed it".|
|Achilles worked well a short blood line and he really liked the deer tail at the end of track.|
|He claimed the tail and would not let it go.|
The below video shows Achilles' dam Tundra working her first wild boar.
It looks like Achilles is going to make a nice and needed addition to the American gene pool of working standard wires out of European descent. Congrats to Genti and Beth on such a nice pup!
