Dachshund

a small (approximately 20-25 lb) breed of dog characterized by its long body, deep chest and very short legs. A German breed, the name means 'badger dog' and it was bred for hunting small game. There are three coat types: smooth (or shorthaired), longhaired and wire-haired, found in black, shades of brown, brindled and dappled. A miniature variety (less than 10 lb) is also bred in all three coat types. The breed is predisposed to intervertebral disk protrusion, acanthosis nigricans, cystinuria and diabetes mellitus.
