Pronounced dak-sun(s), Dachshunds are a small breed of dog that sometimes are known in vernacular as wiener dogs, sausage dogs or hot dogs because their bodies are long and their legs are short and muscular. They used to be known as "badger dogs" for they hunted back in Germany before they were exported to other countries. Variations of Dachshunds include them being either shorthaired, wirehaired, or longhaired. The colors they come in are red, chesnut, cream, tan, brown, or black. These lively creatures can be good watchdogs.
My favorite dog is the Dachshund.

A breed of dog developed in Germany starting around 1600. The breed took almost 100 years to develop but is being ruined in modern times by people who cross breed them with any type of dog. The breed is also being affected by owners of puppy mills who sell dogs with genetic defects.

Dachshunds are very loyal to their owners and don't take to strangers unless they are socialized.
Shady Bob wanted to get in the dog breeding business. He had a male Dachshund and a female Pekinese. He bred the two and sold them as Longhaired Dachshunds to gullible people.

One of the best dog breeds to exist. They might be small in size, but they have huge personalities!

Some of them have quite big ego β€˜s, but they will always be there to lick your face and comfort you when you’re down.

They are playful and funny and just amazing dogs in general.
