Dachshunds are native to Germany and have a long and interesting history. They were originally bred to hunt badgers, rabbits and track wounded game. The Miniature Dachshund is the smaller of the two types, while the Standard Dachshund is the larger dog. Today, these charming, short-legged dogs are among the most popular companion dogs and family pets both here in the UK and in other parts of the world.
