Miniature Long - Haired Dachshund

name of dog

Example of the breed given by Eastern Counties DA.
 

Extract from the Eastern Counties D.A. pages ----
"The origins of the Dachshund can be traced back to working dogs that could go to ground after game such as badgers. Today, the breed, which is characterised as "long, low and level", is popular both as a show dog and pet". ------ "Dachshunds are still used by some people for working; typically tracking fallen deer, and these are often called Teckels. They tend to be slighter in body and longer in the leg than "show" Dachshunds, but are highly regarded for their working ability and "good noses".----- "Long-haireds are the "glamour kids", with feathering on their ears and tails and long, silky body coats. These coats need regular grooming to keep them tidy and to avoid matting. "
Colours are Black & Tan, Red (ranging from Cream to Shaded Red) and Silver Dapple. Brindle (tiger-striped) also occurs.

Problems


Because of their long backs, there is obviously a greater risk of slipped disk problems than in a "normal" shaped dog.
Mini-Longs should be tested for P.R.A. (Progressive Retinal Atrophy) which is an inherited condition causing degenerative disease of the retina and leading to blindness
