Dachshunds, also known as Wiener dogs or sausage dogs, are small-sized dogs with unique body shapes and undeniable charm. Dachshunds originated in Germany and were originally bred for hunting small game, particularly badgers. Their long, low-slung bodies and short legs allow them to maneuver and dig into burrows, making them excellent trackers. One of the most recognizable features of Dachshunds is their elongated body and short legs, earning them the nickname sausage dog. An origami custom cursor with Dachshund Dog.
