What Is the History of the Dachshund?

The Dachshund is a small breed of dog that is also called “Doxie”, “Weiner Dog”, “Sausage Dog”, and “Badger Dog”. This beloved breed originated in Germany to hunt badgers. In fact, the word Dachshund in German is a combination of two words: “Dachs” meaning badger and “Hund” meaning dog. This breed of scent hound dog was bred in an elongated form with short legs to enter badger dens and hunt their prey. Over time, this breed became popular as a companion breed given its distinct look and playful personality. Dachshunds are today one of the most popular breeds in the United States, Canada, and Europe.

What Are the Types of Dachshund Puppies?

Dachshunds are divided into three categories based on their hair type: smooth-haired, wire-haired, and long-haired. The coat texture and length is different across these types, but they are all elongated dogs with short legs. Smooth-haired dachshunds have a short coat that is smooth and relatively easy to maintain. Wire-haired dachshunds have a dense, wiry coat that’s a bit more difficult to groom. Long-haired dachshunds have a long, smooth coat that also requires frequent brushing. All three coat types can come in a variety of colors, with 12 Dachshund colors recognized by the American Kennel Club.

Do Dachshunds Bark a Lot?

Dachshunds are vocal dogs, especially given their hunting origins. As a small breed, they are even more prone to barking, especially if frightened, alerted, anxious, or in need. Despite being high-barking dogs, Dachshunds can be trained to bark only when it is necessary. As an intelligent and highly trainable breed, these dogs can be trained, for instance, to only bark when there is someone at the door or if there is a danger that the owner needs to be alerted of. With early socialization and training, Dachshunds can learn to avoid excessive barking and act as well-behaved members of the household.

What Health Conditions Can Dachshunds Have?

While all dogs are at risk of some common conditions, Dachshunds are prone to some health issues that are specific to their breed. Specifically, Dachshunds are more likely to develop back problems (given their form) and certain types of cancers. Some of the most common health issues for Doxies include intervertebral disc disease, which results from degeneration of spine discs, and pancreatitis, which is characterized as inflammation of the pancreas. Dachshunds also have a higher risk of developing some cancers, such as lymphoma andhemangiosarcoma. Given these issues, it’s important that you find a Dachshund pup whose parents have been genetically tested, and that your dog is regularly checked by a veterinarian.

How Much Do Dachshund Puppies Cost?

Dachshund puppies for sale typically range in price from $1,000 to $2,500. The exact price of the puppy will vary depending on factors such as the breeder’s experience and location, puppy registrations (e.g. ACK, UKC), and genetic testing clearance. As you calculate expected costs for owning and raising a Dachshund puppy, you should also consider the ongoing costs of food, veterinary care, grooming, and unexpected medical costs.

Where Can I Adopt a Dachshund?

Your best bet for adopting a Dachshund is by checking local shelters and rescues that are focused on Dachshund dogs. Examples include theSouthern California Dachshund Rescue, the Central Texas Dachshund Rescueand Dachshund Rescue South Florida. A quick search online can help you find the right rescues in your state, county, or municipality that have Dachshund puppies available for adoption. Many rescue organizations have websites where you can view pictures of Doxies currently available for adoption. Adopting a Doxie can be less expensive than purchasing one from a reputable breeder, and helps an abandoned dog find a new, loving home. However, keep in mind that adopted dogs may require additional medical care or behavioral training and that you should be financially prepared for these requirements.

How Do I Find a Reputable Dachshund Breeder?

To find a healthy, well-bred Doxie puppy, your first step is to find a reputable Dachshund breeder. Below are our recommended steps for finding the right match for your home:

  1. Research Dachshund breeders in your area. Search for breeders who are registered with national Dachshund organizations (e.g. Dachshund Club of America) or are affiliated with reputable kennel clubs.
  2. Consider finding vetted breeders through screening platforms such as Mawoo Pets.
  3. Once you have a list of potential breeders, call them to ask about their breeding practices, health clearances, and health guarantees. Reputable breeders should gladly field your questions and spend time explaining their process and philosophy to you.
  4. Visit the breeder in person. This way, you can observe the breeder’s operation firsthand and better understand the health and temperament of the breeding parents.
  5. Look for signs that you are working with a responsible breeder. Indicators include genetic testing, recent veterinary clearances, and a clean living environment for the puppies.

Don’t rush the process. Take your time finding the right puppy from the right breeder; this will help you avoid health and behavioral issues, and set you up for success as a dog owner. At Mawoo Pets, we have screened 1,000+ breeders across the United States and Canada. Our team can help you find the right Dachshund breeder and coordinate the travel of your puppy home.
