The Doxie News doesn’t get it, but for whatever their reasons, there are people out there who don’t want a plain old Dachshund. They prefer a Dachshund mix, a wiener dog crossed with another dog breed.

This designer dog is recognized by the ACHC (American Canine Hybrid Club) as the Toy Rat Doxie and by the DDKC (Designer Dogs Kennel Club) as the Toy Ratshund Terrier. More information can be found here. And you can also watch this video of a two-day-old Toy Rat Doxie litter:
