Dachsi Apso History

The Dachshund is a medium-sized, short-legged, long-bodied, hound-type scent hound that originated in Germany. The name “Dachshund” is the German term for “badger-dog”. The Dachshund is one of the smallest of the scent hounds, differing from the other hounds in having its hindquarters longer than its forequarters. The legs are set well apart and the body is slightly arched. The head is elongated with a fox-like muzzle, a long nose, and erect, triangular ears. The tail is carried low and is customarily docked. The coat is smooth and short, and comes in many colors. The Dachshund has been used to hunt badgers and rabbits. It is used for tracking, but is now primarily used for companionship and as a watchdog.
