Dogs - Dachshund, wire haired

The dachshund, or teckel, to give it another name, originated in Germany, where they were bred to hunt badger and fox. The small dogs were able to get right into the animal's hole and flush it out. They have big paws for digging. They are great burrowers, and like to burrow into a pile of blankets - or burrow through a hole in the fence.

Dachshunds come in two sizes, standard and miniature.

About dachshunds 

Dachshunds have short legs and long bodies. Wire haired Dachshunds have harsh, bristle-like coats which should be hand-stripped. They have shaggy eyebrows and a little beard.

Dachshunds are popular in South Africa as they fit in well in a town house, or any household. It's not advisable to carry puppies around all day, as they need to use their legs in order to develop properly. Breeds with long spines can develop spinal trouble, so do be careful about handling your puppy. Use two hands to support the pup.
