The Dachshund is one of the most recognisable of all breeds with its long body and short stature. It was used for hunting badgers and foxes. Show-Standard dogs have deep chests and short legs, while working dogs have less pronounced chest and longer legs. There are three varieties of Dachshund the smooth-haired being the oldest known, the long-haired Dachshund was probably developed by crossing the standard with short-legged spaniels. The wire-haired was created by crossing the smooth haired with rough-haired Pinschers, this produced a dog with a rough coat and a small head. Later the Dandie Dinmont Terrier was also probably used in the bloodline. the wire-haired is characterised by bushy wiry hair on the eyebrows and on the muzzle. Dachshunds weigh 6.5-11.5 kgs and are about 25 cms tall. They come in a variety of colours like black/tan, red, brown and chocolate.
