    Dachshund is very similar to bagidu in appearance. It has four short legs and a long body. Dachshund can be divided into three types of coat: short coat, long coat and bristle. There are two sizes of dachshund: standard type and mini type. These two sizes of dogs all have several types of hair in front of them. The ideal weight of adult standard dachshunds should be about 9-12kg, and that of small dachshunds should be about 4.5kg.

    Dachshund is a kind of active and brave hunting dog. It is the only dog that can catch mice. It has amazing endurance and physical strength when tracking prey. It has a keen sense of smell and a body shape similar to a small dog. It can drive rabbits, foxes and other prey into the hole freely. He is lively, intelligent and likes to make noise. Dachshunds have any coat color, white spots or spots of various colors on the chest. Breed of short haired dog with short dense hair and thick hair on the inside of tail. A breed of dog with long, soft, lusterless, straight, or slightly wavy coat. The back side of the foot has rich fur. The body is long and muscular, and can drill into the hole freely. The head is long, the tip is thin, and the head is arched. The eyes are dark and of moderate size. If the fur is striped, some or all of the eyes are light blue. The ears are always moving, broad and long, with high ear roots. The tail descends and bends along the dorsal bone with the tail end upward. The muscles of the front legs are strong and the back legs are parallel from the back. The front foot is high and the back foot is slightly smaller.

    The head is tapered (tapering toward the tip of the nose) when viewed from above or from the side. Eyes medium size, almond shaped, dark circles, pleasant and comfortable expression; eyes not sharp; very dark color. The bridge of the nose (over the eyes) is very strong and protruding. In addition to spotted dachshunds, the presence of color rings in the eyes is a very serious defect. Ears are placed very close to the top of the head, not too far forward, medium length, round, not too narrow, too sharp or folded. The ears are hanging, and when moving, the front edge of the ears is attached to the cheek and becomes part of the face. The head is slightly arched, neither too wide nor too narrow, and gradually tilted. After a slight but perceptible stop, it transits to a delicate, slightly arched tone. Black is the preferred color for nose glasses. The lips extend tightly, covering the jaw. Nostrils open. The mouth can be opened very much. The joint of mandible and skull is located at the lower back of the eye. The bones and teeth are very strong. Teeth: powerful canine teeth, tight teeth, scissor bite and. Pincers are small defects, others are serious defects.

    Neck long, well-developed, neat, no fat, slightly arched back of neck, smoothly integrated into shoulder. The trunk is long and muscular. From the silhouette, the back (from the withers to the short, slightly arched waist) is as straight as possible. It is a serious defect to hang the body loosely on the shoulder blade. Abdomen: slightly raised.

    The gait is smooth and smooth. The forelegs are well stretched forward and cannot be raised too high. They cooperate with the driving action of the hindquarters. The right shoulder structure and the right elbows allow the stride to stretch, with a large stride. Viewed from the front, the forelegs do not move in an absolutely parallel plane, but slightly inward to counteract the effects of too short legs and chest width. The driving action of the hind limb is in the same line with that of the front limb. The hock joint (metatarsal bone) neither bends inward nor turns outward. The driving force of the hind legs mainly depends on the fact that he can fully extend his hind legs. When viewed from the side, the extent of the hind legs stretching forward is the same as that of the hind legs stretching backward. The correct action of the back pedal is that the back foot pad is clearly visible during the whole backward extension process.

    The feet should be parallel to the direction of travel, neither swaying, traversing, nor interfering with each other. A short, rolling gait, a swinging, high leg raising gait, coming or going too close or too far are all mistakes. Dachshunds must have a lively, stretching movement and stamina to complete their work.
