We love all dogs, but there is nothing quite like a dachshund.
From their roots as a hound, they have a distinct personality to sniff things out, and are quick to chase any moving objects. Bred to be miniature hunters and chase out badgers, prairie dogs, and other burrowing animals, they are useful, but also cute. They are rambunctious and full of life, but also easy to train and discipline. They are great listeners and can be taught an indefinite amount of tricks, and are a truly intelligent dog. Even in old age, dachshunds are sharp and quick to learn new tricks, and still full of energy. In groups they cannot resist the urge to play and will offer hours of entertainment for friends and family. We love all dogs, but there is a special place in our heart for Dachshunds.
