Dachshund (standard Wirehaired)



Wirehaired Dachshunds 2014 Wall Calendar
 


For the Love of Dachshunds 2014 Deluxe Wall Calendar

 

When rejected by his father he became industrious and motivated; when rejected by his mother he became proudly independent; 
when rejected by his siblings he became deeply compassionate; but when rejected by the family dachshund he became a complete nut case.
- from a case history of Sigmund Freud

"Dachs" is German for badger and since the 1500s, Dachshunds have been used to hunt badger, fox, and deer. 

The Wire-Haired Dachshund was developed by crossing the original Standard Smooth-Haired Dachshund with a terrier. 

These fearless dogs have a keen sense of smell and work in packs when hunting.

The Standard Dachshund is 8 inches high at the shoulder and has three coat types. The Wire-Haired Dachshund has a short, straight, harsh, water-repellent double coat and can be red, black and tan, fawn, chocolate, grey or white with rust markings, dappled or brindle. 

The Dachshund has little body odour. This particular variety of Dachshund also has a short beard! 

The Dachsie may be stubborn, dominant, and a challenge to train. However, he is also friendly, playful, alert, and spirited, and makes a terrific companion. The fearless Dachshund does not always look before he leaps! He can sometimes overestimate his athletic abilities! 

The Dachshund requires early, consistent training from a patient, take-charge master. If spoiled, he may become snappy. Training may require extra time and patience. Early socialization is a good idea.  Blessed with a loud bark, the Standard Dachshund makes a good watchdog!

A fenced yard is a must as the Dachshund will instinctively wander off after an interesting scent. Be sure the yard is truly escape-proof as the Dachshund can dig his way out of almost anything! Dachshunds require regular exercise to fight a tendency to obesity. This is particularly important as the Dachshund's body shape does not support extra weight well.
