Dachshund Dog Breed Facts
The dachshund (UK: /ˈdakshʊnd/ or US: /ˈdɑːkshʊnt/ DAHKS-huunt  or /ˈdɑːksənt/; English: badger dog; also known as the sausage dog or wiener dog) is a short-legged, long-bodied, hound-type dog breed. They may be smooth-haired, wire-haired, or long-haired.
The standard-size dachshund was developed to scent, chase, and flush out badgers and other burrow-dwelling animals, while the miniature dachshund was bred to hunt smaller prey such as rabbits. In the Western United States, they have also been used to track wounded deer and hunt prairie dogs.
