I have a min pin and dachshund mix. She is about one year old and healthy at this point but what about health issues later?

Well that depends a lot on which dog of the mix your dog favors the most, does she look more like the dachshund or the min pin. If she favors the doxie with short legs and a long back you can almost count on some back problems late in life.

And if her body is more like a min pin she could have some joint problems as she gets older

Many people believe if they buy a mixed dog of two purebred parents they will have a healthier dog than either of the two parent breeds. Only thats not often true. Very often you get the health issues of both breeds. So in your case I would study both breeds and their health problems and work to avoid them. Teach your dog not to jump on and off furniture. They have doggy steps that you can buy for the bed and furniture. Some people build small ramps next to stairs for their doxies. Talk with your vet and see what supplements you can give to help with joint health. Also feed quility food.

I have a litter of Doxie Pin Puppies due the first week of Nov. I would love to see a pic of your baby to give me an idea of what mine will look like. This is our first litter. Thanks, Cindy

A lot depends on how you take care of her. If you let her run/get loose = lots of problems.

If you take her to the vet every year, have dentals done when needed, feed quality food, have her spayed & as mentioned don't let her jump - much better chance of a long healthy life

Even if you see 100 pics of this mix, there is no way of determining what your future litter will look like.

The OP hasn't replied to this thread, but have you all seen how many newcomers (not posting on anything else I might add) have posted on this one specific thread regarding the same mix?

This same issue arose way back when humans were out of control and breeding with every other humans available. The important issue to know and understand is: Know your genetic, medical, and family history! Same goes for our doggies!. I am a Disabled Marine Corps Veteran and I enjoy helping other Vets and sharing the joy of my babies. The possibility of health issues arise with any living being.
In our modern world there are so many factors that could come into play, that anything could happen. However as responsible pet owners/breeders it is our responsibility to make sure that life we bring into this world whether it be canine or human be taken care of and looked after to the best of our abilities. Given the proper home, proper diet, and the best medical care, you should be pleased to know that you will spend a long and happy life with your babies. Of course as with all babies you need to make sure you have a doctor on standby because things happen from time to time beyond our control and we want to keep them healthy.
