The Dachshund is a very popular dog in the UK and its name when translated from the German word, means badger dog. Possibly because their original purpose was to hunt badgers. Belonging to the hound group, their well muscled, low, long lean body would have been well suited to that task.
There are six kinds of Dachshund, falling into two sizes and three coat types. Standard and miniature sizes, and smooth-haired, long-haired and wire-haired. Dachshunds are playful but can be sometimes a bit stubborn and difficult to train. However, they are cute and delightful.
Stuck for an idea! It’s always difficult to think of something a bit different to give as a gift.
Gathered together here are a few of the lovely things that will make any dog lover very happy.
