About Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund

Crusoe is quite an enterprising dachshund. “The wiener dog who thinks he’s more of a celebrity than he really is (for now)” boasts over 44M views on his YouTube channel, 1.5M+ Facebook followers, a New York Times best-selling book, and an award-winning blog. Crusoe charms with adorable antics, costumed characters, and comic videos, including a recent debate night parody revealing his stance on the immigration of pussycats. Having recovered from an emergency surgery in August, Crusoe is back to his status as top dog, even setting out on the road in Fall 2016 to promote his book and 2017 wall calendar with in-person appearances nationwide.
