Dachshund (Miniature Long Haired)

KC Pedigree, X-Small

Moderate shedding

Good for first time owners

Once the Dachshund reached the badger underground, they'd bark loudly to alert their human of their location.


Attractive to ...

Town or city dwellers. When it comes to carrying a Dachshund on a bus, the Mini is easier than the Standard.

Not the best for ...

Those who want a quieter dog. Dachshunds might be small, but their barks are mighty – and they like the sounds of their own voice!

Doesn't have to be a solid hour, you can give them lots of short walks.

Any feathering can get knotty. Some coats self-clean by depositing mud all over the kitchen floor.

All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!
