Miniature Dashund hearing

I have a miniature dashund and he seems not to be able to hear. then other times he does. do I need to have him checked out or is this normal with this breed of dog. this is my first miniature dashund and he is 11 weeks old.

Have you brought him to the vet and asked about it? I am sure they would be able to tell you.
Oh, and when you get a chance, could you post some pics??? I LOOOOOVE :flirt: Doxies!!! :cloud9:

The woman upstairs from me has a 12 year old dachshund who I was convinced had hearing loss sometimes it would not even look at her owner when called or make any notice. The woman insisted it was selective hearing and I was skeptical until the lady called the dog after she wandered about 3 houses down and the little dog definitely heard (and ignored) her call.
I think stubbornness is a trait of the breed.
