The dachshund is of German origin and literally means “badger dog” The breed was developed to use scent to trail and hunt animals,and may have descended from scent hounds such as bloodhounds, pointers, basset hounds.It can also be argued that they could have developed from the terrier, or “earth dog”, group.due to its persistent personality and love for digging. One dachshund was known to have dug a 10 meter hole to catch its unsuspecting prey.
