Dachshund-I would like for some person to tell me all about the Dachshund. I think it is the kind of dog I want. I see a photo of a German Dachshund. Are there other breeds besides the German?
The photo which you mention is a good one, but is rather misleading as it does not show the build of the Dachshund. This dog has a long body and extremely short legs, and is not good for chasing game. They are, however, excellent trailers and make fine dogs for skunk hunting. The Dachshund is of German origin and the name is a German one, meaning “badger dog,” as they are used for hunting the European badger. Our book “hunting dogs’ gives a complete description of this as well as all other breeds used for the chase.
