The short-legged and long-bodied canine go by multiple names: wiener dog, badger dog, sausage dog and doxie.

On June 18, 2022, around 120 to 130 wiener dogs of all sizes, colours and variations from all over the island linked up to celebrate and pawty at Symphony Lake in Singapore Botanic Gardens in anticipation of the upcoming International Doxie Day, which is on June 21, 2022.

Biggest doxie event

Speaking to Mothership, 26-year-old Ng Rui Sin said this is one of the biggest Dachshund event that she knows of so far.

The gathering started as an impromptu idea within Ng's Telegram group, where 18 pawrents RSVP-ed their attendance by June 8.

This number grew to over 50 respondents by the time June 18 drew nearer.

Ng was blown away by the overwhelming turnout on the event day itself, where more than 100 wiener dogs attended the sausage fest, alongside other breeds such as poodles and border collies.

Those interested can join community

While there are no immediate plans for another large-scale gathering soon, Ng said many of the owners hope to meet for International Doxie Day next year.
