The dachshund (UK: DAKS-nd, DASH-, -huund, -huunt or US: DAHKS-huunt, -nt, German: 'badger dog'), also known as the wiener dog, badger dog, and sausage dog, is a short-legged, long-bodied, hound-type dog breed. They may be smooth, wire, or long-haired. The standard-sized dachshund was developed to scent, chase, and flush out badgers and other burrow-dwelling animals, while the miniature dachshund was bred to hunt small animals such as rabbits and other smaller animals. According to the American Kennel Club the dachshund was ranked 12th in popularity among dog breeds in the United States in 2018.

Although Dachshund is a German word, in modern German they are more commonly known by the short name Dackel or Teckel. Because of their long, narrow build, they are often nicknamed wiener dog or sausage dog. Classification While classified in the hound group or scent hound group in the United States and Great Britain, the breed has its own group in the countries which belong to the Fdration Cynologique Internationale (World Canine Federation).
