Dachshunds were originally bred to hunt badgers. They originated from Europe with German, French and English hounds and terriers as ancestors. The name Dachshund literally means “badger dog”. They are also called Dackel and Teckel. Because they are low to the ground, they are capable of entering through tunnels.

The Dachshund has an elongated, muscular body and short legs. It has an elongated head, convex skull and eyebrows that stick out. His jaws are pronounced and muscular. He has a friendly and active expression, with dark oval eyes (eyes can be brown, black or even appear red). His long ears flop down. The upright tail is aligned with his back.

Dachshunds come in three varieties, wirehaired, shorthaired and long haired with each variety coming in three sizes, full-grown, miniature and kaninchen. A full-grown or standard height is 35½–46cm (14–18ins) and weighs 7–13kgs (16– 28lbs); a miniature (also called dwarf) height is 35½cm (14ins) or less and usually weighs 5kgs (11lbs) while the kaninchen (also called toy) is under 30cm (12ins) in height and weighs 3–4kgs (7– 9lbs).

Dachshunds are low maintenance and only needs brushing to prevent tangles and mats from forming. Keeping their ears dry is a must at all times to prevent fungus, bacteria and mites.

Dachshunds belong to the AKC hound group.

Dachshunds are not suited to impatient people because they are known as strong headed dogs. They have loud bark, dislikes unfamiliar people and will usually growl or bark to show their dislike. They enjoy digging holes and chasing other animals such as birds, squirrels and lizards.

Despite being strong headed, they are very much devoted to their owners. They make not only good watchdogs but also excellent companions. As a matter of fact they do not enjoy being alone and will whine until company arrives.

Dachshunds are found in single colour or bi-colour. Single colour appears in yellow or tan. Bi-colour includes bright chestnut colour with black, brown or gray markings. Other varieties include harlequin and piebald.

Dachshunds are lovable and loyal but because of their headstrong nature they are difficult to teach. They are a little naughty and are very enthusiastic about digging holes in your courtyard. Some people consider the long-haired as a quiet one and the wire-haired one as the extrovert and entertainer.

As Dachshunds mature, they may become more inactive and gain weight, which is not good for their health. Common health problems include heart disease, diabetes, problems with their back and urinary tract infections.

Because of their long spinal column and short rib cage, they are prone to spinal problems especially intervertebral disk disease or IVDD. This disease may result to partial or full paralysis. Obese (fat) Dachshunds are more susceptible to this disease. To prevent injury, vets recommend stopping them from jumping and other activities that could add stress on their backs. They should also get regular exercise to prevent obesity and lessen the risk of IVDD. Other health problems include eye abnormalities, urinary tract stones and mammary gland cancers.
