The Golden Dox, also famous as Golden Weiner Dog, is a strong and lively cross between the Golden Retriever and the Dachshund. It is characterized by a long and muscular body with short legs, high-set fold-over ears, and medium-sized dark eyes. Depending on the physical traits it inherits from its parent breeds, it may have a long snout just like a Dachshund and dense fur like a Golden Retriever.

Temperament and Behavior

Owing to its cute appearance and affectionate disposition, the Golden Dox is a welcome addition to any family. Being a wonderful companion, it always wants to be close to its people, pleasing the owner with its playful antics.

These courageous dogs can also be stubborn, often exhibiting independent behavior. Since it has a hunting ancestry, it may chase small household pets, including cats, squirrels, and birds.

Always wary of strangers, it will not hesitate to alert you of any suspicious activity, making for an excellent watchdog.



Tiring it out with an hour of daily activity will keep your pet dog mellow and happy. Aside from jogging, walking, or running, your Golden Doxie will enjoy a game of retrieving the ball in the yard. Make sure you have your backyard properly fenced and also stop your dog from jumping on or off high places to avoid back injuries.


It requires a fair amount of grooming, including brushing once a month to keep its hairs from tangling, and bathing when its coat becomes dirty. If it has the smooth coat-type, you should wipe your dog using a damp cloth to keep its fur clean. Brush its teeth on a daily basis to prevent bacterial infections.

Health Problems

Some Golden Weiners may be prone to some health conditions including intervertebral disc disease, epilepsy, progressive retinal atrophy, diabetes, bloating, and allergies.


It can often be mischievous, and because of this, you need to be firm and consistent in your approach. Owing to its intelligence, the Golden Dox can learn to respond to commands quickly if motivated.


Introduce your dog to a variety of unknown people and pets, and make sure it has positive experiences with them during its puppyhood. Puppies love exploring new things and form bonds until they are three to four months old. Invite your friends or relatives to come to your place frequently and tell them to offer treats. It will help your Golden Dox feel confident in the presence of friendly visitors.

Managing its Chase Drive

Since your dog may be driven to chasing and hunting small animals, you need to teach it a reliable “stop” and “recall” command. Be sure to keep it on the leash when in public. Let your Golden Doxie take part in dog sports like agility, flyball, and treibball since they provide a physical outlet for indulging in its favorite pastime.


Give your Golden Dox one to two cups of quality dry food on a regular basis. You may also keep it on the BARF diet, which includes raw foods like fruits, vegetables, meat, and bones.
