The Docker is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Dachshund and Cocker Spaniel dog breeds. They range in size from small to medium and enjoy lounging around with intervals of playtime. Fetch, hiking, or squirrel chasing would be ideal. These pups inherited some of the best qualities from both of their parents. Dockers go by a few other names, including Doxie Spaniel and Spaniel Doxie. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed-breed, along with every other one, in shelters and breed-specific rescues, so remember to adopt! Don’t shop! These adorable pups make great family additions. The bigger the family, the better, because they don’t like to be left alone for long stretches. If you want a sweet-natured dog who will also alert you to any potential dangers and enjoy paling around with you, the Docker may be a great choice.
