Dachshunds

Dachshunds are short-legged dogs. The Dachshund comes to us from Germany. Dachshunds were bred as hunting dogs. The dachshund has very strong front paws great for digging. Dachshunds are great for hunting small animals that live underground

Dachshund Health

Dachshunds are general a healthy breed. They can develop back problems because of their short legs and long backs. Dachshunds are easy to take care of depending on their coats. A dachshund can be long haired, short haired, or somewhere in between. Dachshunds usually live between 14 and 17 years.

Dachshunds Make Great Pets

Dachshunds like to run and play like all other dogs. You do have to watch them because dachshunds like to dig. Dachshunds are usually very friendly, lovable dogs. The dachshund is a very loyal breed. Dachshunds like to be around people.

You should be careful not to over feed a dachshund. Over feeding any dog can cause health problems. A dachshund should have a diet high in protein and calcium, with fruits and vegetables.

My Love for Dachshunds

My love for the dachshund started when I was a child. I always remember having a dog. My father liked to go hunting, and he always had a dachshund. He would say the dachshund was the best bird dogs breed.

I just liked having the company of a dachshund. I remember my dog waiting for me by the door when I came home from school. I loved playing with the dogs. My dogs were always by my side when I was a child. Even as a young girl, I loved it when my dachshund would fall asleep on my lap. Dachshunds love people, and that is why I love them.

Nice reading about dogs especially dachshunds with their short legs and lovable disposition. But I wonder, don't they bark a lot? If they do bark, when do they bark? I have no close encounters with dogs since I am a cat man myself.

Dachshunds are cute but they take an awful lot of steps to get where they're going!
