A teenager who loves dogs has gone viral after managing to line up his entire army of 16 dachshunds and sharing a picture of the perfect ‘sausage pack’ on social media.
19-year-old Liam Beach is a father to 16 well-behaved pooches including Duke, Saffie, Sammy, Kiki, Zac, Bonnie, Ziggy, Ruby, Buster, Benjie, Diamond, Wallie, Dudley, Kizzy, Lottie, and Daisy.
After Liam’s friend challenged the teen by saying it was impossible to line up all of his dogs and make them pose for a photo, the 19-year-old achieved the impossible and captured it on camera.
“My friend Catherine challenged me to try to get all of my lot sat on the stairs for a photo,” Liam, who is from Wales, UK, recalled according to Daily Mail.
“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 photo. It took me eight minutes in total. I timed myself.
“My friends think the picture is amazing and my family love it. We are going to get it framed. I posted the photo online too and people keep commenting on how much they love it and that they’re amazed by how I’ve managed to get the daxies to sit still.
“It’s amazing the amount of positive reactions I’ve had because sometimes people are judge-y about the amount 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.”
While Liam, who is an animal management graduate, and his family initially planned on stopping the expansion of their brood when they got their fourth dachshund, their family grew bigger and bigger after they started a breeding business.
As Liam admitted, it’s sometimes too hard to say goodbye to all of the pups of a litter which is why the family keeps the dogs they get very attached to.
