The Dachshund breed is a favorite on social media with their picturesque short little legs and long, lithe bodies. You may know these dogs as a doxie, wiener dog, sausage dog, hot dog, or badger dog.

There are three varieties of Dachshund including shorthaired, wirehaired, and longhaired. They can come in a wide variety of colors including black, red, blue, cream, fawn, brown, chocolate, and liver. Some have particulary distinctive markings around their eyes almost like eyeliner!

Dachshunds were originally bred as scent hound dogs to hunt badgers as well as other tunneling animals like foxes and rabbits. While they still make skilled small-game hunters, nowadays, Dachshunds are happy with plenty of daily exercise and spending time relaxing with the family.

Like other small dogs, Dachshunds can show aggression towards other dogs and strangers. They have a lot of fight in them for such small pooches! But with proper early training, these dogs can adapt to be very obedient and are typically loving, gentle family companions. They also do well with another dachshund or two in the family.

They have a rather goofy personality and make excellent watchdogs. Dachshunds are famous for being loud and will make a deep howl with any noises or the sight of uninvited guests.

Dachshunds are a smaller dog breed. They can grow to weigh between 11 and 32 pounds and 5 to 9 inches in height. Dachshunds are typically quite healthy and enjoy an average lifespan of 12 to 16 years.
