When “Angus” was born, he was so different from other pups we had seen—he looked like a little bull right from the start, thus his name. His low station, heavy bone and small size—6.75 lbs. fully matured—made him an ideal stud to provide badly needed substance and lower station to miniatures of the day. He certainly did help add those qualities to the miniatures of his time period. As a bonus, he proved to be a size reducer, placing his get under the then 10 pound weight limit, even when bred to small standards.
Angus did inherit the longhair gene and passed it on quite freely to his get. To be sure this was well known, “Angus” was shown in the Stud Dog class at Knickerbocker Dachshund Club with a Champion long, Champion smooth and Champion wire as his get!
