Dachshund - Guide to Dachshunds

Description: The Dachshund has a strong mix of both hound and terrier characteristics: he has a strong sense of smell, a loud voice and he also has the built-in instinct to search out vermin and rodents. In Germany, where the breed has existed since the early 1600s, the dog was named Dachshund which means "badger dog" and historians believe the original smooth variety evolved from the French Basset. Later on, crosses with field spaniels created the longhaired type and crosses with terriers created the wirehaired types. Miniature versions of all three coat varieties were then developed by breeding only the smallest specimens from subsequent litters. The breed became popular and was recognized in the late 1800s in Britain and North America. The Dachshund enjoys family life in the country or the city.

Height: Miniature Dachshunds are generally under 9" (23 cm), while the Standard Dachshunds are several inches taller.

Weight: The Miniature Dachshund variety must weigh under 10 lbs (4.5 kg) and the Standard variety usually weighs between 16 and 32 lbs (7-14 kg).

Coat Type: The Dachshund has three coat-types: smooth, longhaired and wirehaired. The Smooth's coat is short, flat-lying and shiny. The Longhaired's coat is longer, wavy, and glossy.

The Longhaired and Wirehaired require extra attention for grooming purposes.

Temperament: The Dachshund is intelligent, energetic and brave beyond his means. They make lively, friendly, loyal family pets.

Health Problems: Epilepsy has been demonstrated to have a genetic component in this breed. The Dachshund has a very long back, and is the breed at m...
