Miniature Dachshund – Holly

Unfortunately we are unable to keep our doggos and are looking for them to go to a good home. Taco is a nearly 2 year old female miniature dachshund she is very affectionate and loving she would be best suited with people that have no kids or an elderly person as she gets scared easy. Bailey is a 7-8 month old male miniature dachshund he is very affectionate and very playful he would suit a family with kids. Both are trained to go to the toilet outside or on training pads they are upto date with vaccinations and microchipped. Looking to get $500 for taco and $1000 for Bailey but am very happy to negotiate lower 😊

The Ultimate Miniature Dachshund Guide

About Miniature Dachshund

The Miniature Dachshund has many nicknames including Doxie, Dashie, and Teckel. In Australia, it is commonly known as the “sausage dog.” The German word “dachs” means “badger” in English, while the word “hund” translates to “dog.”

Grooming

Grooming

There are short-haired, wire-haired, and long-haired Dachshunds. It is recommended to groom short-haired dogs at least once a week, and wire-haired and long-haired dogs several times a week.

Origins

The development of the Miniature Dachshund is thought to have begun in the late 19th century. Breeders aimed to create a smaller version of the standard Dachshund that retained the breed’s hunting abilities and characteristics but was more suited to hunting smaller prey like rabbits. This was achieved by selectively breeding smaller Dachshunds.

As with the standard Dachshund, the Miniature Dachshund became popular in the United States and other countries. They were initially brought over for hunting purposes but quickly became beloved pets due to their unique appearance and friendly nature.

Throughout the 20th century, the Miniature Dachshund gained popularity not only as a hunting dog but also as a show dog and companion. Their distinct shape, intelligence, and playful nature endeared them to many.

Today, Miniature Dachshunds are recognized by various kennel clubs and are popular pets worldwide. They are known for their long, low bodies, keen sense of smell, and spirited personality. Despite their small size, they are often fearless and can be quite bold.

Key Characteristics Of Miniature Dachshunds

Are Miniature Dachshunds Family-Friendly?

Yes. These dogs are suitable for families. They are good with children and make wonderful companions for single or older people.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Miniature Dachshunds may suffer from:

Intervertebral disc disease

Epilepsy

Progressive retinal atrophy

Bloating

Cushing’s Disease

A condition caused by an overproduction of cortisol leading to symptoms like increased thirst, hunger, urination, and a pot-bellied appearance.

Nature / Temperament

Playful, independent, loyal, courageous, and clever

Suitable Environment

Miniature Dachshund puppies will do well in small living spaces as long as they get a moderate amount of exercise daily. They can live in apartments as well as houses that do not have a backyard.

Other Considerations

Despite their size, Miniature Dachshund puppies have a surprisingly loud and high-pitched bark. They can be suspicious of strangers, so early socialisation is advised.

Because of their long body, these dogs are prone to back issues. It is suggested to train your canine not to jump to and from high places.

These dogs have hunting instincts, so do not be surprised if they display some related behaviours. It is recommended to train them at an early age so that they do not dig up your flowers or treat their toys as prey.

How can I take good care of my Miniature Dachshund?

Nutrition

The recommended daily food intake for Miniature Dachshund puppies is ½ to 1½ cups of high-quality dry dog food a day, divided into two meals. Choose food that is high in protein and rich in vitamins, minerals, and fats.

Try to monitor your dog’s food intake every single time as obesity can put a strain on its fragile back. You will know if you are feeding it too much if it starts leaving some food behind in its bowl.

Grooming

The Miniature Dachshund is a low-maintenance dog. You can wipe clean your Mini Dachshund with a damp cloth between baths. If you have a wire-haired or long-haired dog, brush its coat regularly to prevent mats from forming.

Exercise

From birth to 12 months, Miniature Dachshund puppies need only five minutes of physical activity for every month of age. When it reaches four to six months old, you can begin building up the time spent on walks.

Starting slow and playing light are recommended while your dog is still young.

This breed is prone to getting overweight, so daily exercise is suggested. Set aside at least 30 minutes of walking or playing outdoors once your dog is fully developed, which is usually at one year old.

Training

While intelligent, Miniature Dachshund puppies can be very independent, making them a little challenging to train. Try to be patient and persistent when training them, and use positive reinforcement such as treats and rewards.

To prevent your dog from getting bored, keep your training sessions short and avoid repeating the same exercises. You may also enrol your canine in a kindergarten class where it will be taught basic obedience and socialisation.

This is basic information, and it should not be used to make adoption or purchasing decisions. Be sure to consult an expert if you’d like to learn about the breed’s care and requirements.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.
