Dachshund (miniature longhaired)

 

I would rather train a striped zebra
to balance an Indian club than induce a dachshund to heed my slightest command.

Since the 1500s, Dachshunds have been used to hunt badger and fox by digging after it. 

The original dog was the Standard Smooth Dachshund and all other dachsies were developed from this dog. 

Miniature Dachshunds were bred in Germany specifically to hunt rabbits as they are small enough to go down into a rabbit's burrow.

The Miniature Dachshund is about 6 inches high at the shoulder. This dog comes in three coat types. The long-haired dog has a soft, straight or slightly wavy coat and can be red, black and tan, grey or white with rust markings, dappled or brindle. Despite his size, this breed has terrier-like qualities and likes to be the boss! He may be stubborn, dominant, and a challenge to train. However, the Dachshund is also friendly, playful, alert, and spirited, and makes a terrific companion. 

The Miniature Dachshund requires early and consistent training from a strong, patient, take-charge master. If spoiled, he may become snappy. Training can be difficult and may require extra time and patience. Early socialization is a good idea.  The Miniature Dachshund makes a good watchdog as he can make a surprising amount of noise when barking!

A fenced yard is a must as the Miniature Dachshund has a great sense of smell and will follow his nose. Dachshunds require regular exercise to fight a tendency to become overweight. This is particularly important as the Dachshund's body shape does not support extra weight well. 

If regularly exercised, this dog can live in an apartment. However, the neighbours may not appreciate his watchdog instincts! Children should not be allowed to roughhouse with the dog.
