Skateboarding has been extremely popular in Southern California since the early 1960s. There is now somebody new on the scene that is well worth meeting, a 16-month-old miniature dachshund named Rowdy. Not only does she enjoy skateboarding on the streets of Los Angeles, she has her own Instagram profile where she can share pictures and videos with the entire world. Rowdy now has more than 30,000 Instagram followers and growing.
Ever since Rowdy was a little puppy, she has loved skateboarding. She was even in a running competition at the age of four months old. According to her Instagram: “I love to run fast and compete. I’ve won three 1st place championships, 2nd place, and a 3rd place finish in my journey for the title of fastest dachshund in Southern California.” When Rowdy is between competitions, she spends her time on the streets of LA and skate parks on the skateboard.
“It’s so much fun to ride my skateboard,” the lovable little rascal’s inner voice says on social media. “So much so that I rarely play with my dog toys, because I’d rather be outside skateboarding.” The videos that are posted of Rowdy on Instagram show her doing some rad stunts. It seems as if she is up to any challenge and is happy to enjoy a day out in the sun.
I’d like to introduce you to Rowdy, a miniature dachshund that loves to skateboard.
