It is unknown where the Dachsador originated from. It is believed that the hybrid breed was developed as a result of designer dog trends that have appeared in the last two decades. The Dachsador was created by the combination of the Dachshund and the Labrador Retriever. In the 1400s, the Dachshund was developed in Germany. A great pack hunter, this breed excelled at hunting the badger. Their relatively good speed and even more so, their ability to enter dens of prey gave them their name, which when translated means "badger hound”. They were famous for their bravery when boar hunting as well. In the 1800s, they were more popular as a companion; they eventually made their way to the United States but were not sought after there because of their German ties. After World War II however, the Dachshund became an adored family pet. The exact origin of the Labrador Retriever is often theorized as having beginnings in Portugal before being introduced into Newfoundland. The history of the Labrador Retriever began to be documented in the 19th century when English aristocrats imported the dogs from Newfoundland. At the time, they were known as “St John’s” dogs who assisted fisherman by retrieving lines and lost fish. The breed’s strong work ethic became a big factor in families wanting to obtain one. The Labrador Retriever was ideal for hunting and was often used by hunters who brought them back from Canada. In 1865, the name Labrador Retriever officially stuck with the breed. Originally, the breed was black in color but after time, the colors spread out to include liver and yellow in the late 1800s. In 1917, the American Kennel Club officially recognized the breed.
