Dachshunds are very unique and active little dogs that have found their way into the hearts and homes of many people over the years, both in the UK and elsewhere in the world. Although small in stature, a Dachshund is very busy and will happily take on as much exercise as its owner will allow it. The breed originated in Germany where they were bred to hunt rabbits, badgers and wounded game. There is nothing these dogs love more than being out and about chasing a scent, but they are just as happy curling up next to their owner on the sofa at the end of the day. Dachshunds are intelligent, loyal companions and love being part of a household.
