Let's say hello to Flora

Dachshund (Miniature Long-Haired), 5 years old

🏠 Suburbs dog
🍷 Lives with adults only

My favourite thing about Flora is...

Very friendly loving and affectionate. She asks for pets and is training to do search and rescue work which dachshunds are really good at having an excellent nose and scenting abilities.

The biggest challenge with Flora is...

She’s a little dachshund so she does bark quite a lot but nothing we didnt expect from the breed

The most surprising thing about owning a Dachshund (Miniature Long-Haired) is...

How smart they are

What I wish I’d known about Dachshunds (Miniature Long-Haired) is...

How delicate they are a be careful with that back

Did you know?

It is thought that a translation error is why this breed appears in the hound group and not the terrier group! Its German name means Badger Dog, but back in 1874 when the breed was entered in the English stud book, authors wrongly translated the German ‘hund’ as ‘hound’ rather than as ‘dog’. Many owners will agree that living with a Dachshund feels more like living with a terrier than a hound!
