He has a good head and expression. . The Miniature Long Haired Dachshund, Wood’s Wildstar Wrivera. She has the loveliest of heads and is well made throughout with the strength of topline and movement to expect from this kennel. The Wirehaired Dachshund Rowe’s Boloria Nice’N’Spicy JW a bitch I awarded reserve BPIS to last year who has matured so well. She is of excellent type and size and moves true.
