Dachshunds figure in winter sports controversy

Last week the Dachshund News brought you the story of opposition to wiener dog ice racing. This week it’s another dangerous winter sport involving Dachshunds.

We’ve left a note asking the director of this video to check in and explain the special effects.

While we wait, consider this. Apparently, the wiener dog ice races were a big success and raised $5000 for the Ryan Newman Foundation, which encourages people to spay/neuter their pets and to adopt dogs and cats from animal shelters.

    That idiot should be charged with animal cruelty!!!! How ignore is this person?!?!?! Responsible Dachshund owners don’t put their dogs in jeopardy of hurting their backs by pulling ANYTHING. Not to mention the chance of them becoming paralyzed &/or hit by cars. The idiot is setting a pretty bad example to the kid. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!!!

    Where are the parents of this kid?!! They should know about a breed before even getting any dog. The child does not have a good example of responsibility- this is something that you NEVER, NEVER do!!!
    I hope someone has been able to contact these people somehow and been able to get it across to their brains that they are damaging their dogs backs- who will be paralyzed first??? This isn’t an ‘if’ they will be paralyzed’, it is ‘when’.
