Therese - They were originally bred to hunt badgers as they would dig up under the animal to bite it's tummy or something like that. My grandfather told me this when he presented us with a mini-doxie when I was 7.
I comment here because when our Ginger was just 5, she tumbled down a long flight of stairs and hurt her back horribly. The vet said it may be broken (my mother wouldn't pay for an X-ray) and to put her down. I wouldn't hear of it and screamed until my mom said we'd take her home and see how she was in a couple weeks. She wasn't crying and wouldn't unless she was lifted or tried to walk.
For the next two months, I was my dog's back legs. It was winter in New England so that meant when she had to go, I had to put my fingers under her hips to help her. I carried her on a big, down pillow everywhere.
But what I think really helped was the fact that she was small enough that I could get her to swim in a swallow bathtub. I made her swim for 3-4 min. about 4X/day.
One day, when I was filling the tub (and she did Hate water), she just up and ran out of the bathroom.
She lived until she was 16 and a month. Her third bout of cancer was what did her in. But never had back or walking problems again. Turned out to be the best therapy.
