With short legs and a long, low body, there's no mistaking a Dachshund when you see one strutting down the street. Originally bred to hunt badgers (dachs means badger and hund means dog), Dachshunds are now more likely to be seen strolling beside their humans or playing with other canines at the dog park. One of the most pawpular dog breeds in America since the 1950s, Doxies are the prefurred companion of many apartment dwellers due to their small size and ease of care. That doesn't mean they can be left indoors all day, though. These spunky little wiener dogs are always up for walkies; twice a day is ideal to help them stay fit and build strong muscles to support their long backs!
