Dogs - Dachshund
The dachshund, or teckel, or worshond, to give it another name, originated in Germany, where they were bred to hunt badger and fox.
The small dogs were able to get right into the animal's hole and flush it out.
They have big paws for digging. They are great burrowers, and like to burrow
into a pile of blankets - or burrow through a hole in the fence.

kennels, South Africa
Dachshunds have short legs and long,
sausage shaped bodies,
which has given rise to the nickname, "sausage dog", or in Afrikaans, "worshond." The correct name for the breed is "dachshund."
The coat can be smooth, long, or wire-haired. The long haired dog needs a little brushing to keep him at his
best. Long haired Dachshunds have a wavy, silky coat.
Dachshunds are popular in South Africa as they fit in well in a town
house, or any household. It's not advisable to carry puppies around all day, as
they need to use their legs in order to develop properly. Breeds with long
spines can develop spinal trouble, so do be careful about handling your puppy.
Use two hands to support the pup.
As well as there being different coat
types, there are two sizes as well! A dachshund may be miniature, weighing up to
5 kg, or standard, weighing from 9 to 12 kg.
