The Dachshund is a long lived breed, and an excellent companion. With its low, long body and short legs, the Dachshund appears well-balanced, confident, and alert.
Dalmatians first came to firehouses as ratters to kill vermin in stables and firehouses. Because of their coach experience, they were soon running alongside, and eventually riding in the fire engines. To this day, many firehouses in Great Britain and the USA have Dalmatians.
The Dandie Dinmont is a confident and intelligent little terrier, brave and independent. He'd rather be sergeant of the house than be babied. This delightful and entertaining dog is a clown as a companion.
The Doberman Pinscher dog can adapt to the city, if given enough physical and mental exercise, and plenty of obedience training. If accustomed to people at an early age, they can be good family pets.
