Miniature Dachshund

Miniature Dachshund breeders in South AfricaMiniature Dachshund

 

Miniature (or Zwergteckel) dachshunds have a typical chest measurement of 12-14 inches (31–35 cm) and weight of 11 to 13 lb (4–5 kg). Their height range is 5-10 inches (13–25 cm), about that of the Standard dachshund. They are nicknamed "weiner dogs" or "hot dogs" and are sometimes described as being "two dogs long and a half dog high". Miniature Dachshunds come in all three coats: Smooth, Long hair, and Wire hair they come in many colors including Chocolate, chocolate Cream, Piebald, Dapple, and English Cream. Bred to hunt, they are by nature high-spirited and independent. They have a keen intelligence and ability to think on their own. All varieties have their own brand of charm since they have slightly differing ancestry that helped in the development of the coats. Fiercely loyal to hearth and family, they are outstanding pets. Devoted to their family, they will voice loudly when strangers are near, yet generally accept that same stranger after an introductory period. Low to ground, long in body and short of leg, with robust muscular development; the skin is elastic and pliable without excessive wrinkling. Appearing neither crippled, awkward, nor cramped in his capacity for movement, the Miniature Dachshund is well-balanced with bold and confident head carriage and intelligent, alert facial expression. The Miniature Dachshund was developed to hunt small game above and below ground. His keen nose gives him an advantage over most other breeds for trailing.
