Dog Breed of the Day: Dachshund

Dog Breeds

From Dog Breed Info: There are three varieties of Dachshund: the shorthaired, the wirehaired, and the longhaired. With each of these varieties there are three sizes. The Dachshund’s body is longer than it is tall, muscular with short legs. The Dachshund is curious, clever, lively, affectionate, proud, brave and amusing. Devoted to its family, it can be slightly difficult to train and housebreak, but not impossible. Dachshunds travel well. This little dog needs an owner who understands how to be his pack leader or he will take over the house, and begin to try and tell the owner what to do.

What kind of Dachsund do you own?  Do you own the classic “hot dog” dog?  Do you own a large one or a small one?  We’d love for you to send us pictures of your Dachsund.  And obviously if you have any stories to share we’d love to get those too.   For your viewing pleasure, here’s a fun gallery of Dachsunds.   Please click “next” below each picture to view them all!
