The right stuff for hunting

Although they share many features (and plenty of ancestors) with the Basset Hound, Dachshunds certainly are unique. Lighter, smaller, finer-boned, and quicker than their Basset cousins (although some sources say that, originally, the Dachshund was the larger of the two breeds), Dachshunds can fit into places a Basset can't, and they usually can move with greater agility.

Dachshunds also have a keen scenting ability, facilitated by their low stance and long ears. But it's the Dachshund personality that's even more highly prized. Their energy, eagerness, and Terrier-like feisti-ness in the pursuit of small game have historically distinguished Dachshunds as excellent hunting companions.
