What Does A Dachshund And Cavalier King Charles Mix Look Like?

With both Doxies and Cavalier spaniels being relatively small dogs, their mix is also usually just 13 to 20 inches tall (33 to 50 cm) and 15 to 25 pounds heavy (7 to 11 kg).

Dashalier Temperament

This is what makes the Dashalier such a great family pet – it marries the calm and aristocratic mentality of the Cavalier spaniel with the adventurous and strong-willed dachshund.

As a small and short-legged dog, the Dashalier doesn’t really need that much exercise. About an hour a day, divided between two 30-minute walks outside . . .
