From the Publisher:

An intimate look at Ameria's fifth most popular breed! Is there any breed more recognizable than a Dachshund? The lovable wiener dogs have captured America's heart and imagination with their noble bearing and comical personalities. And the breed truly offers something for everyone with long coats, wire coats and smooth coats, standard size and miniatures.

From the Inside Flap:

The Dachshund A Dog for Town and Country
With its distinctive long body and short legs, the Dachshund is unlikely to be confused with any other breed. Originally bred to hunt badgers, early Dachshunds were distinguished by their courage and determination, and the same fire and pluck is evident in modern-day Dachshunds. This vivacious dog is clever, clean, adaptable, good-tempered, loyal, inquisitive, fun-loving, alert, and intelligent. The low-to-the-ground Dachshund is one of most popular breeds worldwide. His small size enables him to live comfortably in a city apartment, yet he is hardy enough for life in the country. The Dachshund can be found in three varieties of coat (smooth, longhaired, and wirehaired), two sizes (standard and miniature), and many colors (red, black and tan, chocolate and tan, and others). Compact and muscular, his every act and movement exude an endearing charm and an overwhelmingly authentic joy of living.
