Get to know


Low on leg, high on life - Dachshunds make you smile. Maybe that’s why everyone loves a Dachshund, whether Standard or Miniature, and Smooth, Long, or Wirehaired.

Variety is the spice of life, and Dachshunds (Doxies to their friends) are about as spicy as it gets in the world of AKC dog breeds. They’re one breed with three coat types (smooth, long and wire) and two sizes (standard and miniature). The coat types may actually have slightly different personalities, but they’re all daring, brash - and spicy!
