Getting a new puppy is always exciting, but finding the right nickname can sometimes be quite confusing at times.

Although the most common nicknames for any dachshund are hot dog, wiener, sausage, and many other cool and cute nicknames can be used. Giving them a loving nickname is very important as that is going to be there with them forever.

A dachshund is basically a German breed dog with short stubby legs and a long body. It is also a hound-type dog breed that usually has a red, red, and tan, or black and tan-colored coat. The name has a German origin, meaning badger dog. This breed of dog is called so because dachshunds were bred mainly to chase small animals like badgers. Also, the miniature-sized dachshund was created for hunting animals like rabbits. In 2018, this breed of dog was declared the 12th most popular breed in America by the American Kennel Club. Although this breed of dog was named dachshund, it is mostly called teckel or dackel in modern Germany.

This small dog breed with little legs is perfectly built for digging and traveling through burrows and tunnels. A dachshund puppy will either be short-haired, wire-haired, or long-haired. Although this breed from Germany normally has a playful nature, at times, they can become very stubborn. Also, a dachshund can also be very determined to hunt for small animals or toys quite ferociously.

A dachshund is also called doxie many times. Although the name suggests otherwise, there's no difference between the two. The name doxie probably came in recent times as an alternative spelling to the original dachshund's name, which was founded in 15th-century Germany. Both names classify the same purebred dog that has an elongated body with floppy ears and a long snout.
