Dachshund Puppies for Sale in Ohio

The dachshund was developed to help flush out badgers from their holes. They were traditionally seen as a symbol to ridicule Germany in political cartoons during World War I, and in 1972, the breed was chosen as the official mascot of the Summer Olympics in Munich.

President John F. Kennedy was fond of the breed and once bought a dachshund puppy while on a tour in Europe for his girlfriend Olivia. The cute and cuddly pups were also known to grace the laps of many other notable characters, including artist Andy Warhol, President Grover Cleveland and writer E.B. White.

Breed Characteristics

The dachshund is well-known for its elongated body, short, stubby legs and floppy ears. They come in standard or miniature sizes and can be a variety of colors. Even as adults, dachshunds remain small animals, making them a good choice for those living in smaller spaces.

These dogs tend to be curious and charming, and they are extremely loyal to their families. They’re excellent with other pets, but they can be quite possessive with their toys. They may also display a bout of jealousy when they want attention. If you would like to add a dachshund to your family, check out the available dogs at Puppies Online.
