"This is Chance, a Dachshund/Cairn Terrier. He loves to drag our shoes and socks around the living room and then will go hide in the basket when we scold him. He will look at you like he is so innocent. He is our little Christmas baby."
The Doxie Cairn is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Cairn Terrier and the Dachshund. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
