Dachshunds

The Dachshund is a small, muscular, short-legged dog with a long body giving it the nickname ’sausage dog’ or ‘weiner’ dog.

The Dachshund comes in two sizes (Standard and Miniature) and three varieties (Smooth-Haired, Long-Haired and Wire-Haired). Whichever size or variety you are looking at, it is impossible to mistake the Dachshund for any other dog.
