Gordon is a male Dachshund puppy. Dachshunds are energetic, brave, intelligent and independent. They are quite happy, even clownish, and can behave mischievously on occasion. The Dachshund greatly enjoys interacting with humans and is quite friendly and outgoing at home. The Dachshund needs a small amount of exercise; medium length walks or a fair amount of play in the yard should be sufficient.
