Dachshund dog breeders have listings in our website of Dachshund dogs for sale. These Purebred Puppies have been carefully screened and vetted for the assurance of would-be pet owners.

Dachshund History

The shortest in the hound family, Dachshund were first bred in Germany. Its name can be translated into “badger dog.” Earliest mentions of this dog breed in written documents date back to the 15th century where illustrations and documents made reference to the “earth dog” or the “badge creeper.” Although Dachshunds were used to hunt for badgers, there are other animals that are considered as preys by this dog breed. Among the animals this dog breed was used to hunt are boars, foxes, deer, and rabbits.

Instrumental in the development of this dog breed are the Braque, the Pinscher, and the French Basset Hound. The earliest version of the Dachshund, the Smooths, was a cross between a Braque and a Pinscher. German foresters were responsible for refining this dog breed which they referred to as Teckel. The American Kennel Club (AKC) has recognized this dog breed as the only breed to be able to hunt above and below ground. It was in 1885 when this dog breed was entered into the registry of the AKC. The Dachshund was then bred with more domesticated traits, deviating from its original fierce and fearless attitude. Royals in Great Britain took a fondness for this dog breed and have even paved the way for the development of a miniature dachshund.

Dachshund’s Appearance

Dachshunds are long and low with varying coats and colors. This small drop-eared dog breed sports an elongated body that sits close to the ground. Dachshunds come in standard and miniature sizes. The Smooth Dachshund, which is the most popular type in this breed, is very popular in the US. Smooths have short and shiny coats in varying colors and patterns. Although they do not require regular brushing and grooming, you have to make sure that they are protected adequately during extremely cold weather. More attention is required in the grooming of the longhaired and wirehaired Dachshunds.

Dachshund's Temperament

Dachshunds bred and trained as pets for homes do not have fierce temperaments. They are friendly and playful, making them a delight to have around. They love to be with people and do things for people. Although small in size, they have a bark that is as deep and hardy as bigger dogs. These dogs have the tendency to develop a closer relationship with a particular family member, normally the one he spends the most time with. Crate training is highly recommended for this dog breed.

Dachshund’s Role

Even though bred for hunting, Dachshunds today are great companion dogs. A Dachshund pet can be counted on to be loyal to a family member. Proper training will help Dachshunds recognize his role as a mere member of the family rather than as a pack leader. Socializing your dog with the other members of the family will accustom him to being around them and interacting with them.
