Dachshund Puppies For Sale

Overview

The cute Dachshund, often known as a “wiener dog,” “hot dog,” “sausage dog,” and “Doxie,” is distinguished by its long body and short legs. They were initially designed to chase badgers and other threatening animals on their own. They were utilized in packs to pursue and hunt wild boar. German for “badger dog,” the Dachshund was first domesticated in Germany. They have a history dating back more than 600 years, and they have long served as a representation of Germany at the international level. They were accepted into the AKC’s Stud Book in 1885 and are regarded as belonging to the Hound Group.

Temperament

The “Wiener Dog” is witty, vivacious, and brave. They prefer to get along well with kids and are outgoing, feisty, and interested. Dachshunds are effective watchdogs because they are typically alert, suspicious of outsiders, and bark with a “big-dog” tone. They have a tendency to bark, although early socialization and training can minimize this. They also have a high prey drive, which, if not properly socialized, can be problematic for pets that are smaller than them in the house. They do, however, often get along with other canines.

Adaptability

This breed of dog is somewhat versatile. They fit in well with families of all kinds, particularly those with kids, and thrive in apartments or bigger homes with yards. They thrive in temperate settings because they do not adapt well to extreme cold and can be sensitive to heat.

Health

A fairly healthy dog breed is the dachshund. Dachshunds are susceptible to disc injury and back issues because of their size and form, especially as they mature. Over time, running up and down stairs or jumping on and off furniture can harm your Dachshund’s spine. It’s crucial to prevent kids from gaining weight and to keep an eye on their activity to prevent disc injury. If their ears are not kept clean, they may also develop ear infections.

Grooming

They shed moderately, and their coats need just mild maintenance. There are three variations of Dachshund coats: smooth, wiry, and long. A Dachshund with silky hair will have short, lustrous, smooth fur. Short, stiff, and dense fur is a characteristic of wirehaired coats. A Dachshund with long hair will have smooth, somewhat wavy fur. The coat is available in numerous designs and hues. The coat of this dog will remain healthy with routine brushing and occasional baths. To avoid mats and tangles, long-haired Dachshunds should be combed a few times per week.
You should be sure to cut your dog’s nails every month in addition to brushing their coats and giving them the occasional bath. Additionally, it’s critical to routinely examine and clean their ears. They can get ear infections if their ears are not kept clean because they have “drop ears,” or ears that droop or flop over. Cleaning your dog’s teeth on a regular basis is essential for preventing dental issues. Regular tooth brushing helps to prevent tartar buildup and significant dental issues including tooth decay and periodontal disease. It’s best to wash your teeth every day. Regular grooming and upkeep are considerably simpler when your puppy is accustomed to having its teeth washed and paws touched early on.

Activity level

The activity level of dachshunds ranges from low to moderate. Because of their propensity for gaining weight, their short legs and joints are subjected to unneeded stress. Therefore, this dog needs a balanced diet as well as a lot of activity to stay happy and healthy. Additionally, regular exercise helps your Dachshund develop and maintain muscles that will support and protect its spine. Usually, two daily walks and occasional fun are enough to keep this dog in condition.

Size

The typical shoulder height of a dachshund is between 5 and 9 inches. A Standard Dachshund will be 8 to 9 inches tall, but Miniature Dachshunds are 5 to 6 inches tall. Standard Dachshunds weigh 16–32 pounds, but Mini Dachshunds weigh less than 11 pounds.
