miniature dachshund

The Miniature Dachshund has a long and low body, with short legs and a muscular structure. Its head is also elongated with a long muzzle. The oval eyes of the Miniature Dachshund can be brown-black or dark red, and lend the dog a very wise, regal, yet friendly expression. The coat of the Miniature Dachshund can come in three varieties, which are short haired, long haired, or wire haired, and colourings can vary, and include solid tan or solid yellow, black, grey, or brown, with chestnut markings, speckle-streaked, or even harlequin. The weight of the Miniature Dachshund is around 9 pounds, and the height up to around 14 inches.

The Miniature Dachshund is a breed that is very curious, lively, and affectionate, usually outgoing, very intelligent, and full of love and devotion for his family. However, this breed can also be wilful, strong minded, and a little tenacious. These dogs have a strong curious streak, as well as a protective streak when it comes to their owners/families. Although they get on okay with other pets and older children, they also possess a jealous streak, which can make them irritable and snappy in some situations.
