Wirehaired Dachshunds Breeders
What are Wirehaired Dachshunds?
The Wirehaired Dachshund is sweet, loving, funny and intelligent. Wirehaired Dachshunds aren’t really rare, but they are harder to find than the other coat types. For wirehaired dachshund lovers, they’re completely worth the search and the wait it takes to own one. You see, they are incredible! If you haven’t had the pleasure of owning a Wirehaired Dachshund, you’re really missing out. Wirehaired dachshunds have a scruffy or rough coat. Yet, they are suprisingly soft, given the description. They can be kept in a natural coat or a groomer can help with stripping the coat to give you a show appearance. They actually come a few unique colors. Such as Wheaton and Wild Boar. Meaning that these colors should only be respresented in wirehaired dachshunds, but they can occassionally show on a smooth coat doxie that has wirehaired ancestors.
Where did Wirehaired Dachshunds come from and what makes them so special?
Historically, Wirehair Dachshunds are said to be a cross between a Smooth Coat Dachshund and a small terrier. (Perhaps a Dandie Dinmont or a Scottish Terrier?) If you would like to learn more about wirehaired dachshund history. The best part about wirehaired dachshunds are their personalities. A Wire’s temperament is awesome! It is often said that wire dachshunds are the class clown, but they are also the class nerd in a sense. They are incredibly intelligent. They seem to pick up on tricks and housebreaking a little better than their counterparts.
Through the years, I have talked to many wirehaired dachshund owners and one things always stands out.. they will always own one! Always! I guess the same could be said for us. First and foremost, we are dachshund lovers. But, it is so much fun to be with these little guys. I will forever feel like a little girl, giggling when I watch them play.
