Dachshund puppies are very unique looking and active little dogs. Although they are small, they love being busy and will happily take as much exercise as their owner would give them. Dachshunds are also intelligent and loyal companions. They are relatively hard to train as they can be a little stubborn and they sometimes choose to ignore the recall command.
The official origin of the Dachshunds can be traced to Germany in the 15th Century. The two sizes of dachshunds were bred primarily for hunting. The Standard Dachshund was bred for sniffing and flushing out badgers while the miniature Dachshund was bred for hunting rabbits.
The name Dachshund literally means “badger dog“ in German.
