Dachshund, Long Haried
Bred and shown in two sizes, standard and miniature.The long-haired
Dachshund is an old, fixed sub-variety of the "Teckel",
and its history extends back to the beginning of Teckel breeding.
The breed is full of character. quick in attack and defense, faithful
when properly brought up, and very obedient. All the senses are well
developed. It has the reputation of being extraordinarily intelligent
and easy to train. Its build and temperament fit it to hunt quarry
both above and below ground; its eagerness, keen sight and hearing
and its sonorous bark make it especially suitable for tracking. In
these respects it compares very favorably with any other variety.
The thick, soft hair protects it against thorns, enables it to endure
both cold and heat, and is rain-proof. It is especially suited to
water work. In following a trail, its highly developed sense of smell
stands it in good stead. It is easily trained to retrieve. The long-haired
Dachshund can therefore be used in many different ways by the sportsman.
Miniatures-11 pounds and under at 12 months of age and older. Weight
of the standard size is usually between 16 and 32 pounds
