I just joined this forum. I live in the beautiful Pacific NW. I have one doxie so far..Oscar..He has been with us for almost 2 1/2 yrs. He was supposedly 4 or 5 when we adopted him, but it turns out he is more like 11 or 12 now. We adore the little guy. He is so precious. We have just registered with a doxie rescue group to adopt more.
