Bruiser is a mixed breed known as a chiweenie. Chiweenies are a miniature dachshund and chihuahua cross. This means he has all the stubbornness of the dachshund breed AND what I like to call chihuahua warrior syndrome.
He’s only 10 pounds but he’s a handful! He is fiercely attached to his mommy and acts like a little nurse mate when anyone in his pack is ill.
