Dachshund Breed Basics

The Dachshund (sometimes referred to as the Doxie or Wiener-Dog) is one of the more popular dogs in the USA, especially among those living in apartments and smaller dwellings.
The are two standard sizes in the USA, standard and miniature. The Dachshund has a long body and muscular with short, stubby legs and large paws built for digging. They were originally used to hunt badgers, foxes and rabbits.

The Dachshund originated in Germany by crossing various hounds and terriers in an effort to produce a hound with the digging abilities of a terrier. During the latter part of the 19th century, they became popular with royalty .

The average owner will tell you that Dachshunds are loyal and devoted dogs, however they tend to be wary of strangers. Doxies are very much a pack dog and fret when separated from their owners for a long time. They require their owner to pay plenty of attention to them, but will be equally affectionate in return.

Doxies have 3 varieties of coat. Short-haired - a short smooth coat, long-haired - a long silky coat with feathering on the legs and ears and Wire-haired (the least common). Dachshunds have a wide variation of coloring and patterns. Typical colors are shades of cream to red, black and tan, tan and chocolate and tan and blue, which can be dappled or bindled.

They weigh between 7 and 15 pounds
