Woof and Happy New Year, everyone!

I hope you had as great of a time over the holidays as I did. I got presents and treats and sooooo many laps to sit in! As it is still my first year at Mount Hope (which makes sense, since I haven’t even turned 1 yet), I get a lot of questions.

What am I?

But technically, when it comes to what sort of dog breed I am, I’m a Dachshund Maltese mix. This is also known as a Mauxie or a Moxie.

I’m in no way the runt of the litter. Us Mauxies really are born this way. Mauxies only get to be about 8-10 inches tall and will only weigh between 10 and 20 pounds (maybe a bit more after the holidays 😊). People say Mauxies are known for being funny and mischievous, but everyone at Mount Hope says I’m a very good boy.

Other things to know about me and my fellow pups of the Mauxie breed:

  • We make excellent pets
  • We do NOT like being cold
  • We are good with children and other pets
  • We should be brushed almost every day
  • We are fairly active dogs

Now that you know who (and what) I am, please visit me and give me lots of petting! I love meeting new people and am so happy that I have a wonderful home surrounded by so many people who work and live here at Mount Hope. New laps every day!
