The Golden Dox, as a hybrid of a Golden Retriever and a Dachshund, is a good-natured, active crossbreed. While most are people-pleasers, a few Doxes can inherit the stubbornness of their Dachshund parents. This breed can exist in a variety of coat lengths, textures, and color combinations. These dogs are also extremely versatile and intelligent, and often compete with success in obedience and agility trials.
Doxes are normally very interested in the goings-on of their human families, and will follow their masters everywhere, if allowed. They are known for being loyal and proud, so they will usually be extremely protective of their human "pack."These dogs also have a love affair with food; they will eat everything you give them (and often beg for more), so Dox owners will need to make sure their dogs do not overeat and become obese.
The good news is, Doxes are pretty energetic, and will typically be willing to engage in physical activity that will burn excess calories. While not overly strong, this breed is normally an active one, and makes a great jogging companion.
