Dachshund Dog Breed Information

Dachshunds come in three different coat varieties (Smooth, Wirehaired or Longhaired) and can be miniature or standard size. They were first bred in the early 1600s in Germany. The goal was to create a fearless, elongated dog that could dig the earth from a badger burrow and fight to the death with the vicious badgers.

The breed becamepopular in the U.S. during the early 1900?s, but fell out of favor during World War I. After the war, a few U.S. breeders slowly rebuilt the gene pool by importing German stock, and the breed began to increase in popularity again.
