The Dashing Wire-Haired Dachshund:  7 Unique Traits

Distinctive Looks

Wire-haired Dachshund's wise-man beard and canopy-thick eyebrows are some of the most distinctive features on its body.

Long Sausage Body

A wise monk face would not be as impressive had there not been a lengthy body resembling an extra-long limousine.

Long Muzzle

A scissor bite makes sure no food escapes the bottomless pit that is the Dach’s stomach, and the elongated muzzle adds a dash of elegance

Soft-Wired Doxie

Soft-wire coat Dachshunds sprout when one parent is long-haired and the other is wire-haired.

Variety Of Coat Colors

There are the almost-monochromatic variants in black, chocolate, cream, fawn, red, wheaten, and wild boar, and then combos like black and cream

A Best Friend For Years To Come

The wire-haired Dachshund is loyal to the bone. That is, of course, if you treat them with respect and teach them some ground rules.

Easy To Groom

Grooming is not a daily chore with most variants, though the long-haired Dachshund will make it tougher on tidiness in the house.
