NEW DOG ON THE BLOCK
DACHSHUND means "badger dog". It's the only breed of dog to hunt both above and below ground. They like to dig!!
Because of their long narrow build, they are often nicknamed hot dog, wiener dog, or sausage dog.
They are classified by their coats, "smooth", "long-haired" and "wire-haired".

"Being the owner of a Dachshund, to me a book on dog discipline becomes a volume of inspired humor. Every sentence is a riot. Some day, if I ever get a chance, I shall write a book, or warning, on the character and temperament of the Dachshund and why he can't be trained and shouldn't be. I would rather train a striped zebra to balance an Indian club than induce a Dachshund to heed my slightest command. When I address Fred, I never have to raise either my voice or my hopes. He even disobeys me when I instruct him in something he wants to do."
Dachshunds are one of the most popular pets in the United States.
