These low-slung sausage dogs are clever, curious and courageous. The Dachshund is a loyal family dog, although they can be stubborn and difficult (but not impossible) to train. The Dachshund is a better pet for older children, as younger children may let this pint-sized pooch get away with anything.
The Dachshund, more affectionately known as the Weiner dog, comes in all shapes and sizes. Dachshunds are used as hunting hounds and the breed’s different sizes reflects the purposes that the hunting community uses them for. Due to its goofy looks, the Dachshund has stolen the hearts not only of hunting enthusiasts but also of many dog owners around the world.
