A golden doxie is a mixed breed pooch produced by breeding between a female golden retriever and a male dachshund.
The retriever is chosen to carry the pups as a result of the size difference. It is much safer for them in case the mixed puppies come out larger than what a female doxie is built for.
When it comes to the build, these dogs more often than not have a look that is reminiscent of both parents. They have a bit of the disproportionately long torso that dachshunds are known for.
However, they tend to have longer and more muscular legs which gives a bit more proportion as is the case with the golden retrievers’ builds.
As earlier alluded to, golden dox doggies can get pretty big. In fact they are classified as medium to large dogs. When it comes to weight, Golden Dox can weigh anywhere between the 30 to 60 pounds range or even higher.
Golden Doxies also tend to grow much taller than their dachshund parents with a height range of 12 to 24 inches.
These doggies are also known for their coats which more often than not resemble that of the golden retriever with colors like tan, gold, brown, and yellow.
The face and head shapes of the golden dox doggy are not too different from either parent. This is because, for the most part, these individual breeds have very similar structures. The resulting pooch will have the same long nose and droopy ears of both parents.
However, the length of the ears varies with some taking after the dachshund with long ears that reach the level of the jawline.
