Dachshund Puppies!

Dachshunds are scenthound dogs bred to hunt badgers and other tunneling animals, rabbits, and foxes. Hunters even used packs of Dachshunds to trail wild boar. Today their versatility makes them excellent family companions, show dogs, and small-game hunters. 

No matter what their size, Dachshunds are a delightful addition to any family, which is why they have ranked near the top of most popular dogs lists since the 1950s. Their cute appearance and lively disposition have inspired many affectionate nicknames for the breed, including wiener dog, hot dog, sausage dog, Doxie, Dashie, and (especially in Germany) Teckels, Dachels, or Dachsels You can’t help but smile when you look at a confident Dachshund, proudly carrying his long, muscular body on short legs, his elongated head held high with a bold, intelligent look in his eyes.

  • Size: Small to medium-sized: Standard Dachshund (16-32 pounds or 7-15 kg), Miniature Dachshund (11 pounds or 5 kg and under), and Kaninchen (“rabbit” in German, typically around 8 pounds or 3.5 kg and under).
  • Lifespan: About 12-16 years
  • Temperament: Dachshunds are known for their lively and curious nature. They can be quite clever, but sometimes stubborn. They are often brave and confident despite their small size.
  • Exercise Needs: They have moderate exercise requirements. Regular walks and playtime are important to prevent obesity and keep them mentally stimulated.
  • Training: Dachshunds can be independent thinkers, but with positive reinforcement training, they can learn well. Early socialization and consistent training are key.
  • Grooming: Grooming needs depend on the coat type. Smooth-coated Dachshunds have minimal grooming needs, while long-haired and wirehaired Dachshunds require more attention to prevent matting.
