Dachshund means “badger dog” in German! Dachshunds are a lively, playful scent hound breed with a really keen sense of smell, hunting ability and an ingrained instinct to dig. Doxies are tenacious, clever and curious with a need for entertainment making them amusing characters. Doxie fans know they are always up for an adventure being active dogs with surprising stamina for such short legs. Above all Dachshunds are known for their devotion and loyalty to their family.

Dachshunds come in three coat varieties; smooth, longhaired and wirehaired plus they can be miniature or standard size. Doxie breed enthusiasts say there are subtle differences among the varieties. The longhaired Dachshunds have an elegant appearance with their sleek, silky coat and its wavy feathering on the belly, legs, fore chest, neck, and ears. Some claim that the longhaired Dachshunds are a little quieter, more docile and cuddliest of the three types.
