Tiny Dachshund Shows Mom His Massive Personality

Wilson the miniature dachshund may be tiny, but he has a massive personality and makes sure to show it!

According to GeoBeats Animals, Wilson’s owner, Jules, explained that when she brought Wilson home, he was such a tiny little pup who didn’t weigh much at all.

Despite that, he showed her right away that size doesn’t matter and that he could be big in spirit, despite being small in stature. In fact, Wilson was so loud and boistrious that he earned the nickname of Thunder Paws!

Jules said, “When I first saw him I was absolutely shocked by his size. He’s about two and a half pounds three pounds. A tiny little guy that would literally get lost in the grass. He was like barely above the grass level. He was the size of my boyfriend’s shoe.”

She went on to say, “The first week he knew exactly in the apartment building where our door was. And for being such a little guy that really didn’t weigh much at all, he would just pound down the hall straight to our door….he had one mission and would absolutely shoot there after he went out. So he was going with the name Thunder Paws.”

Wilson proved to be “incredibly wise beyond his years.” Jules describes him as “an old soul in terms of his intelligence [and] in terms of his ability to read the room and interact with people.…He has a sophisticated presence.”

Jules likely thought Wilson would be meek and shy just based on his size alone, but he showed her how massive his personality and presence really are, and she couldn’t be happier with him.
