Affectionately known as the weiner dog, the Dachshund is a remarkable hound-type dog that had a successful career in hunting but now has sniffed its way to the hearts and homes of dog-lovers all over the world.
Loyal and Independent
These adorable hunters like to explore on their own but at the end of the day, the loyal Dachshund would love nothing more than to snuggle with its human on the couch.
With a body that’s longer than it is tall, low-hanging ears, and huge eyes, a Dachshund stomping along on the grass is sure to elicit a squee from an admirer.
Dachshunds are pack dogs that get along well with groups of people and other animals, making them great family dogs.
The weiner dog might look goofy and silly but they are quick to learn and are always eager to please an adoring human.
With its friendly attitude and boundless energy, Dachshunds can keep up with the most playful of children and enjoy every second they spend with them.

Due to their long bodies on short legs, Dachshunds are predisposed to back issues like Chondrodysplasia and Intervertebral Disk Disease.
