What started as a challenge made us all laugh and swoon on the internet. Who would have thought seeing 16 weiner dogs in the same room, let alone on the steps? These dogs are not only super adorable but also hard to train. As a family, dachshunds are super loyal companions and good watchdogs, however, they can be a little too much to handle at times. These sausage dogs can be quite vicious at times and maybe that is why it’s very surprising to see them all so well trained and acting cohesively. It is only a wonder how this teenager made it possible, although I assume he had the time of his life proving his friend wrong as well as training 16 (yes you heard correctly) weiner dogs.
You are about to see 8 sets of friendly dogs aligned on each step, who go by the names Saffie, Daisy, Dudley, Wallie, Diamond, Ruby, Benjie, Buster, Bonnie, Ziggy, Sammy, Kizzy, Kiki, Zac, Duke, and Lottie. They not only have beautiful names, but they look equally as much adorable and cute. They are vigilant and good listeners who obey very nicely whatever their owner says and in return, the owner showers all of them with love, affection, and lots of treats. Let’s get to know more about them!
Meet the adorable family!
We can always wonder how Liam made it possible, maybe the challenge made him competitive. These beautiful duos look super adorable aligned on stairs. Catherine, who challenged Liam was absolutely sure that he will not be able to pull off, however, he not only proved her wrong but also everyone else. He mentioned this in an interview, “My friend Catherine challenged me to try to get all of my lot sit on the stairs for a photo. She said, “I bet you can’t pull it off,” so I thought “challenge accepted”. She also promised me a box of chocolates if I managed it. She set me that task on Friday morning and 10 minutes later, I had the dog photo. It took me eight minutes in total. I timed myself.”
As adorable as they can be!
Liam was surprised at the feedback he got because he was not expecting it at all. In an interview, he confessed that with the help of a tennis ball, he was able to get the attention of all 16 of them, capturing an amazing picture.
The wonders a tennis ball can do!
Liam was totally surprised, as he said “It’s amazing the number of positive reactions I’ve had because sometimes people are judge-y about the number of dogs I have. But I haven’t had any negative reactions to the picture at all and I’m amazed by how many people love it. It is really lovely to see,” No one was expecting him to pull this off, but he still made it possible.
We keep falling in love with these little angels!
This trick works every time!
Their family has had a long history of training dogs and being their friends. The 19-year-old lives with his parents, 16 dachshunds, and a black Labrador named Jess. It first began when Jess managed to steal this family’s hearts and made his place in their family. Then Sammy arrived, who is now 8 years of age, and the first weiner dog who blew them away. It would also be fair to say that after Sammy, the family’s love for having a weiner dog turned into an obsession.
A family that takes care of each other.
Later on, came the addition of Kizzy so Sammy would have a friend. After some time passed, the family also welcomed Bonnie and Ziggy – who are both 7-years-old now.
Since it can be understood that it is hard for Liam to raise all the weiners alone, so he always makes sure to find a perfect family that will love and cherish them equally as much or maybe even more. Goodbyes are still the hardest for Liam but he does it in all good faith.
Hardest goodbye to the smallest bug!
All for one and one for all!
They are all a big happy family, even if it was for a challenge, we are all really glad we got to see these amazing doggos politely obeying their owner. Liam’s love and affection and the power of a tennis ball made them all surrender and listen to him. In his interview, it is clear that Liam is also surprised at the fact that he was able to pull it off and got them all to sit together in under 8 minutes. He knows that he did an amazing job and we think that too. We are all proud of these adorable sausage dogs who abided by their owner (or should I say the tennis ball). We all love a nice surprise especially when it is 16 adorable and cute dachshunds. Saffie, Daisy, Dudley, Wallie, Diamond, Ruby, Benjie, Buster, Bonnie, Ziggy, Sammy, Kizzy, Kiki, Zac, Duke, and Lottie are glad to have Liam as their owner!
I loved their family, and I hope you do too! Let us know what you thought in the comment section.
