The History and Origins of the Dachshund Breed


The Dachshund breed originated in Germany in the early 17th century.

The breed was developed by breeding small hounds and terriers for the purpose of hunting small game such as badgers and foxes.

The Dachshund was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1885.

Dachshunds come in two sizes: standard and miniature

Dachshunds have a long, sausage-shaped body and short legs.

Dachshunds have a variety of coat types, including smooth, long-haired, and wire-haired.

Dachshunds are known for their independent and determined nature.

Dachshunds can be prone to back problems due to their elongated spine, so they should be prevented from jumping and carrying too much weight.

Dachshunds are playful and affectionate, and make great companion dogs.

Dachshunds were bred to be hunting dogs, but now they are mostly kept as companion dogs and are known for being playful and affectionate.
