The dachshund is a long backed and short legged dog. While small, the Dachshund should still be well muscled and powerfully built with a deep, broad chest. The eyes should be dark, almond shaped and mirror the breeds intelligence. The ears are high set and long.
The Dachshund was developed in Germany over a period of several hundred years for the primary purpose of hunting badgers. The dogs were specifically bred for the strength and tenacity to handle a badger and the body style to "go to ground" (burrow down a badger hole) after his prey. The Dachshund originally weighed in at 30-40 pounds in order to expeditiously handle a badger, but they were also used to hunt small surface animals, trail wounded deer and hunt wild boar.
Dachshunds are known for their terrier tenacity but make a very loyal and loving family pet. They can be reserved and defensive if strangers enter their domain. They are very alert and have a powerful and frequent bark when guarding. Miniature Dachshunds make excellent lap dogs.
