Wire-haired dachshunds, cute, playful, super energetic, and beautiful. I have two of these adorable dogs and their names are Marty and Boo, and one of their birthdays is in 12 days, so here are some facts on this spunky breed:
1. Wire-haired dachshunds love the outdoors and have great noses.
2. They are a proud and bold species.
3. With proper care and good health, a wire-haired dachshund can live 16 years.
4. This breed loves people and works well with families.
5. They originate from Germany and dachshund means “badger dog”.
6. In Germany, dachshunds were bred for hunting and could easily get through nooks and small areas to reach game.
7. These dogs can be silky or wire-haired or just wire-haired. When they are silky, the fur is much softer in appearance and touch.
8. They have the intelligence of a two-year old.
9. Dachshunds in general are very vocal dogs, so be prepared for lots of howling and barking at neighborhood dogs and other distractions. Dachshunds learn quickly, so training them to limit the barking should be fairly easy.
Wire-haired dachshunds are super adorable, fun-loving, and intelligent dogs. If you’re looking for a dog, I highly recommend them. Happy Upcoming Birthday Boo! “Silence is golden, unless you have a dachshund. Then silence is very suspicious. Very, very suspicious.” -Unknown
