I love my Dachshunds to bits. The Dachshund may look like a little dog but he is actually not in the toy group. He is in the hound group because he is a ferocious warrior. He is actually bred to fight badgers to the death. Dachshund means ‘badger hound’ in German and the way the dog is built with the long body and the little short legs and really sharp teeth with the long snout. This is like hardwired design for burrowing down the bedrock hole and going after the prey. So you’re looking at a dog once he is at home loves to burrowing things. So don’t be surprised if your Dachshunds is going to be wiggling under the covers . They frequently like to sleep all the way under the covers like totally not just tucked in but like enclosed. And, that is normal. They are bred for that. A lot of really legendary people have had this breed of dog. We are looking at Pablo Picasso, William Randolph Hearst, and great artists Andy Warhol and David Hockney were huge Dachshund fans too.
