All About Dachshund Dog

By Synzmemoir @synzmemoir
Oreo is a dachshund dog, so I decided to do my research about him and put it here to share for everyone.
Overview
The dachshund name is of German origin which literally means badger dog, from Dachs (badger) and Hund (dog). These dog are short-legged, long-bodied dog breed belonging to the hound familly.
Life Expectancy: 12-15 years

  • Long-haired All about Dachshund Dog
Size, Weight and HeightTheir are two sizes of Dachshund, the standard and Miniature.Standard:   Height up to 8-11 inches (20-27cm.)   Weight - over 11pounds (4.9kg.) at the age of 12 monthsMiniature:All about Dachshund Dog   Height up to 5-7 inches (13-18 cm)   Weight 11 pounds (4.9kg) or less at age 12months
Characteristics:Dachshunds are a very clownish breed and can be very mischievous at times. A very intuitive dog, the Dachshund is now most commonly seen as a companion rather than a hunter. This breed loves to be around people and should never exhibit signs of aggression or timidity. The Dachshund is an all around friendly dog, is very outgoing, and is sure to steal the hearts of everyone he meets.
Temperament:
The Dachshund is a fun loving dog, tenacious, and lively, but can become jealous and be very irritable. This breed does not do well with smaller children, but can do very well with older and more considerate children. Due to his small size and tiny legs, this breed should not be placed in a home with larger dogs unless they were raised around each other. The Dachshund has the tendency to become jealous, however can do very well with many other toy breeds in the home providing they are not snippy.
