The bull-mastiff originated in England in the late 19th century. The dachshund by descent from the spitz or mountain dogs of Northern Germany and Eastern Europe. The dachshund was a popular show dog, and by the early 1900s there were dozens of different dachshund varieties. The dachshund was recognized by the United Kennel Club (UKC) in 1885.
