Dachshund Q&A

I have two ratties and my landlord is trying to force me to keep the dogs outside. I live in Yakima Washington. Night time temps, especially during the fall, winter and spring can be below freezing. My dogs never react well to cooler temperatures. Do you think that it would be unsafe to keep the dogs outside all the time? I don't think so but I need confirmation. Thanks!

My Rattie and I live in Portland Oregon and it is just a little warmer in Winter here, sometimes. He gets cold on cool Spring days so I always have his quilted coat with me as they cannot tolerate the cold due to their thin coat of hair. I suggest you move to a place that allows dogs or rehome them in a home that can keep the Ratties inside. You can also contact the nearest Rat Terrier Rescue Agency that is near Yakima.
