I am living with an Achondroplastic Dwarf named "Oscar".
Oscar is a Dachshund and he carries the same gene that
causes dwarfism in both canine and humans. How about that!!
Beagles, Corgis, Bassetts, and many other short legged dogs
have this gene. This bit of fascinating information comes
from my husband's hand surgeon. This ends my theory that God
made Dachshunds last.... from leftover parts.
