Their mom Rose, a longtime Hoboken resident, tells us all about her Doxie duo.

“Chai & Buzz are my first dogs, and they’ve far exceeded my expectations in every way – they’re all about unconditional love. My former neighbors had 2 miniature dachshunds that I fell in love with so I knew that I just had to have one. Little did I know then that I’d be lucky enough to have two,” says Rose while holding her pups proudly.

“Chai came to me and my husband Joe first, then a year later when his show dog litter-mate brother became available, we knew we had to bring Buzz into our lives as well. We had been following Buzz’s show career & when their breeder decided to no longer show Buzz , we called her immediately. The rest is history.”

^Chai, loving the attention and modeling for our cameras!

“Chai & Buzz are both amusingly unconventional and idiosyncratic – as probably most miniature dachshunds are & that’s why I fell in love with the breed originally.” says Rose. “They are really a great, loving breed of dog. However, they are fragile! Dachshunds aren’t supposed to over exert themselves physically because of their sensitive spines and frames. I always carry Chai and Buzz up any stairs and don’t let them jump or play too much. Especially since they’re older.”
