You will get Chico the Dachshund pattern to make your very own Dachshund. For Dachshund lovers, this is the purrfect collectable. He stands three inches tall and six inches from nose to tail.
Even though they are classified as a Hound, Dachshunds are most like a terrier. It is said that they are half a dog high and two dogs long. They were originally bred for scenting, chasing, and flushing badgers. They love to chase and fetch. Dachshunds can be challenging to train as they are stubborn or strong-willed, so a patient gentle hand is required. They make excellent watchdogs as their bark is quite loud.
They love to dig and to chase small birds, animals and tennis balls with great perseverance. Dachshund's temperament is individual from dog to dog, this means that they may not be good with children and could bite an unknown child.
