The dachshund, also known as the wiener dogbadger dog, or sausage dog, is a hound-type dog breed with short legs and a long body. They come in a variety of textures, including smooth, wire, and longhaired.

The standard-sized dachshund was designed for hunting rabbits and mice, whereas the tiny dachshund was intended to smell, chase, and flush out badgers and other burrow-dwelling creatures. They’ve also been used to track injured deer and hunt prairie dogs in the Western United States.

Dachshunds compete in conformation shows, field trials, and a variety of other activities sponsored by pure-bred dog organizations like the American Kennel Club (AKC). According to the American Kennel Club, the dachshund was the 12th most popular dog breed in the United States in 2018.

The term dachshund comes from the German word dachshund, which literally means “badger dog” and is derived from the words dachs (“European badger”) and hund (“dog”) (“hound, dog”). About this sounddaks.hnt (helpinfo) is how the German word is pronounced. The first and second syllables of the word are pronounced differently in English: /dks-/, /dks-/, and /-hnt/, /-hnd/, /-nd/. Some English speakers could pronounce it as /d-/hound. Despite the fact that “dachshund” is a German term, they are more often known in modern German as Dackel or Teckel.

They’re known as wiener dogs or sausage dogs because of their long, thin form.


While the breed is categorized as a hound or a scent hound in the United States and the United Kingdom, it has its own group in nations that are members of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (World Canine Federation). Many dachshunds, particularly those of the wire-haired variety, have the terrier-like temperament and look. The breed was developed to use scent to trail and hunt animals, and like many modern scent hound breeds such as bloodhounds and Basset Hounds, they probably descended from the Saint Hubert Hound; however, with the persistent personality and love for digging that probably developed from the terrier, it can also be argued that they cling to the terrier group classification.


A typical dachshund has a strong, muscular body and small, stubby legs. It has abnormally big front paws that are paddle-shaped and ideal for digging. While digging in tight holes to hunt food, its skin is elastic enough not to rip. The dachshund has a large chest that allows for proper cardiac development and lung capacity. It has a long snout. Because the dachshund is a hunting dog, “scars from honorable wounds must not be deemed a fault,” according to the AKC rules.

Color and coat

Smooth coat (short hair), longhaired, and wire-haired dachshunds are the three coat types. The smooth coat of longhaired dachshunds is complemented by small featherings on the legs and ears. Wire-haired dachshunds are the least prevalent coat variation in the United States (despite it is the most popular in Germany) and the newest coat to be included in breeding standards.
