Oh she is, for sure! She's a real handful (think a Border Collie packed into a 9lb package), but I wouldn't change her for the world. She keeps me on my toes, that's for sure!
Working line is like any other working line breed.
Nola is technically from working and performance lines. Her breeders hunts and tracks with their Dachshunds, but also does Agility, Earthdog and Rally-O with their dogs, very successfully I might add! Nola seems to have gotten the more performance type, but still has her hunting moments (like the time she snatched a cardinal out of the air in mid flight).
Nola's grandparents were also German imports.
I found her breeder almost by accident; I handled for a Bloodhound breeder who also did tracking and SAR with her dogs, and she knew Nola's breeders. One thing led to another, and her she is!
