Dachshund puppies

Dachshund puppies

Thanks to the Dachshund’s small size, Dachshund puppies are very popular among urban dwellers. Dachshund puppies are adorable, hilariously clever, and endlessly affectionate.

Typically born in litters of 4 – 8, Dachshund puppies are diminutive and born in two sizes, three coat types and a wide variety of colors and markings. Dachshunds are active, affectionate and fun-loving, but they can also be stubborn and even a little mischievous, so it’s important that you keep a close eye on them until they have been trained and socialized.

When you bring your Dachshund puppy home, be sure to allow time for your puppy to adjust to its new environment. Time spent with the children and other members of the family is essential to introducing a dachshund puppy to its new family.

We recommend assembling the family on the floor and letting the puppy come up to them. Treats ensure a positive experience for the puppy, but it’s best to introduce any other pets, quietly and slowly.

Appearance of Dachshund Puppies

Dachshunds are bred in two sizes: standard and miniature. Each size appears bold and well-balanced. They carry themselves confidently and present an intelligent expression.

The Dachshund’s body is long and low to the ground, set on small but muscular legs. Dachshunds possess a powerful nose that is well suited for trailing, and a distinctive build, well suited for burrowing underground. Their skin is pliable and without excessive wrinkling.

Head

When viewed from above, the head of the Dachshund tapers uniformly to the nose. Eyes are dark, medium size, almond-shaped and convey a pleasant expression.

The head displays prominent bridge bones over the eyes. Ears are set atop the head, are medium length, rounded and frame the face on either side of the cheeks.

The skull is slightly arched but not broad or too narrow, and gradually slopes to the muzzle. Dachshunds possess powerful canine teeth fit in a scissor bite.

Body

The Dachshund’s body is developed to be an effective burrower. Forequarters are robust, long and clean muscled. Breast-bone displays prominently in front forming a dimple on either side of the chest.

Thorax appears oval when viewed from the front and extends downward to the mid-point of the forearm. Ribs are well-sprung and full which allows from a powerful heart and strong longs. Shoulder blades are long, broad, and firmly set upon the well-muscled thorax.

Legs and Feet

Upper arms are the same length as the shoulder blades and set at right angles to the shoulder with elbows close to the body. Forearms are short and curved inwards slightly and powered by pliable muscle and tightly strung tendons. Paws are compact with well-arched toes and thick pads.

Tail and Hindquarters

The hindquarters of the Dachshund are strong, muscled and display impressive balance and coordination in equal measure. The pelvis, thighs, and rear are the same length with hind legs that turn neither in nor out.

Hind feet are slightly smaller than forefeet with four compact toes and thick pads. The tail is set in continuation of the spine and extends without kinks or any pronounced curvature.

Coat and Colors

Dachshunds are bred in three varieties of coat: smooth, wirehaired and longhaired. All three varieties possess a short coat that is smooth and shining. Coats should be neither too long nor too thick. Dachshunds have very distinctive facial furnishings including a beard and eyebrows.

When Dachshunds appear in one color, they are red and cream and may display a small amount of white fur on the chest. Dachshunds that are two colors are typically black, chocolate, gray (blue) and fawn.

All two-colored coats may have deep, rich tan or cream markings over the eyes, on the sides of the jaw and along the inner edge of the ear, chest, and throat. Dachshunds may also possess a dappled coat display as lighter-colored areas in contrast with the darker base color.

In wirehaired Dachshunds, the outer coat is uniform, short, and rough. The undercoat is finer, somewhat softer with shorter hairs distributed between coarse hairs. In longhaired Dachshunds, the coat is sleek, glistening, and frequently displays wavy hair under the neck and on fore chest ears and behind the legs giving the dog an elegant appearance.

Height and Weight

Dachshunds are bred in two sizes: standard and miniature. Miniature Dachshunds are no more than 11 pounds when younger than one year old. Standard Dachshunds typically grow to weigh between 16 and 32 pounds.
