Dachshunds : sometimes nicknamed wiener dogs.
Dachshunds are delightful. The breed comes from Germany. They were bred to hunt badgers and tunneling animals. Dachs=badger and hund=dog. They dare to be bold and tenacious.Though bred for hunting, they are ideal family companions .Dachshunds are a good choice for apartment dwellers because of their size and ease of care. They come in three sizes : 1- standard = 16 to 32 pounds.
2 - tweenies =11 to 16 pounds.
3 - minis =under 11 pounds.
They also come in three different coats. 1- smoothcoat (short)
With the variety of size, coat types, and personalities, there is a dachshund to suit almost anyone!
