      About Dachshunds

      Originating in Germany, this dog was historically not intended to become the easy-going lap dog it is today. Dachshunds were bred to be badger-hunting dogs, with their sensitive sense of smell and low-to-the-ground stature. Today, Dachshunds come in two sizes (standard and miniature) and in three varieties (smooth-, wire- and long-haired). They are curious and friendly in nature. These long-bodied, lively pups are sure to steal the hearts of everyone they meet.

      Origin of the Dachshund

      Documents of the Dachshund date back as early as fifteenth-century Germany, where they were bred as badger hunters. They varied greatly in size, from 35 to 5 pounds, the larger of which were used to hunt larger game animals and the smaller of which used to hunt smaller prey (other than just badgers).
