Minature Dachshunds are quite long and adorable. Its hard not to pet them. They are happy with 1-2 medium sized
walks a day. They enjoy lots of company and love playing.
Miniature Dachshunds come in three varieties of coat: smooth, wirehaired, and longhaired. Smooth Dachshunds have short,
smooth, glossy hair that requires a minimal amount of grooming. Wirehaired Dachshunds have medium length, coarse hair with
a good undercoat, and require a moderate amount of grooming. Longhaired Dachshunds have medium length hairthat is soft and
silky to the touch and require a moderate amount of grooming. The coat colors of Miniature Dachshunds are solid red, black
and tan, or chocolate with tan areas. Not the best type of dog around other unfarmiliar children so you might want to
keep an eye out untill your "Doxen" is used to all of the kids.
This dog breed came from Germany and was breeded there to catch badgers.
