Dachshund Characteristics

Dachshunds are one of the most recognizable dog breeds with their comic hot-dog-like bodies. These energetic, small dogs were bred to hunt small animals, but have evolved over time to make fun family companions. Being adaptable, Dachshunds can make a loyal pet in most homes. They love frequent exercise and bring curiosity and outgoing energy to everything they do.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Willful

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.

How dog-friendly is Delaware?

Delaware is a great state to own a pet! Compared to all 50 states, Delaware tends to rank as a fairly average location for things like pet services, pet-friendly accommodations, and more. But great spots for dogs to roam and play, plus good animal welfare laws make Delaware a solid home for your pup.


Two different leading studies rank Delaware as 28th and 29th most pet-friendly state. 


An animal advocacy group called Pawsafe publishes a well-known study ranking the states by factors like animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. They ranked Delaware 28th but gave it good marks for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Another great study comes from the safety site Safewise. They ranked Delaware 29th with similar rankings across the various indicators. 


The consistency between these two studies places Delaware firmly in the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.
