Yes, mini dachshund's are prone to heart defects like enlarged hearts, PRA or progressive retinal atrophy, spinal defects, blindness or deafness in double dapples. Look for a breeder that Guarantee's Genetic health for a certian period of time. Some things like PRA does not show up until they are about 5 years old. Good luck with your new Mini Dachshund.
