The German Dachshund , also called Dackel , Dachshund or Dachshund , is a canine breed especially recognizable for its elongated figure and short legs. This mutation, called bassetism, has become a fundamental and main characteristic of this breed.
The origins of Dachshund date back to the Middle Ages, close to the territory now occupied by Germany. The crossing of bloodhounds, possibly of pointer and pinscher varieties to create a hunter specialized in venturing into burrows, resulted in a dog of short stature and not particularly fast, but very useful as a tracker, which earned him a position among the favorite races of European monarchies.
In 1885 the breed was registered with the American Kennel Club and shortly after, in 1888, the Deuche Tekelklub e.V was founded, the first breeding club dedicated exclusively to Dachshunds .
The Dachshund in its three sizes (standard, miniature and for rabbit hunting) and in any of its three coat varieties (hard, long or short) is a friendly perfect companion to have at home due to its small size and good temperament, but we must not forget its origins as a hunting dog and its need for exercise, since obesity is a risk factor for this breed due to its long spine < / p>
