Dacshund Pic


The Dachshund is a confident and independent little breed.  They are very loyal, but are happiest off doing their own thing when they know their owner is nearby.   They like attention, and will potter around the house with you all day.  This and the fact that they are a great indoor dog as they have an odourless coat, make them an ideal pet for older people, or for people that will be spending lots of time at home.  They are fine with older children, but really tend to prefer adult company


The average lifespan is around 12 years, but they can live for up to 15 years with the right diet, genetics and lifestyle.


They usually grow to about 15-20 cm in height and weigh between 6 and 12 kgs in peak condition.
