A Miniature Dachshund puppy is literally the cutest thing ever! Those long, little bodies and sweet little faces will win you over in a heartbeat!

Miniature Dachshunds were originally bred in Germany about 300 years ago to hunt badgers. Their name literally means “badger hound”! They have also had many famous breed enthusiasts, like Picasso and Andy Warhol and were even the first official Olympic mascot. So many people recognize and love the Miniature Dachshund that they have remained an ever popular pet companion for many years. That’s why here at Petland, we always have the perfect Miniature Dachshund puppies for sale, check them out right here! miniature dachshund puppy

Taking a Miniature Dachshund puppy home

Because they were originally a hunting breed, Mini Dachshunds tend to be high-spirited and independent and need regular exercise to stay fit. Despite this, they do well in smaller environments and can live happily in a condo or apartment. They do great with families with older children, but do not like to be handled too roughly. They need consistent exercise and absolutely no people food, as they tend to gain weight which puts too much strain on their long backs.

Other interesting things about the Doxie

Doxies come in three coats: smoth, longhaired and wirehaired. They are also considered the snowflakes of the dog world, as they come in every variety of coat color out there! They stay around 15-20lbs and have a life span of about 12-14 years. Dachshunds are very loving and loyal to their owners and become very attached to their families. We find that people tend to collect Dachshunds and will have a household full of them!
