wire haired dachshund
Wire haired Dachshund have a very different coat from the Smooth Dachshunds. They have short, thick, hard hair on the topcoat with a softer undercoat. The hard topcoat hair is found everywhere on the body except for the jaw, eyebrows, and ears. While all the colors found in the Smooth Dachshund are acceptable for the Wirehair, the most common color is wild boar.
Longhaired Dachshunds have glistening, slightly wavy long hair which gives them an elegant appearance. They come in the same colors found in Smooth Dachshunds.
Light-colored Dachshunds usually sport light gray, light hazel, green or blue eyes, rather than the various shades of brown. They can also have eyes of two different colors; in rare cases, such as the double-dapple coloration (in which varying amounts of white coloring occur over the body in addition to the dapple pattern), Dachshunds can have a blue and a brown eye.
Wirehaired Dachshunds require regular brushing, and they’ll need to have their coats “stripped” two to three times a year to look their best. Ask the breeder from whom you got your Wirehaired Dachshund or your groomer to show you how to do this.
Dachshunds are a low-maintenance breed. They shed, but not excessively. If you live in a location that is cold in the winter, your Smooth Dachshund may need a sweater when he goes outside.
wire haired dachshund Love to Sleep In Your Bed
As mentioned above, since Dachshunds enjoy burrowing under the covers, expect that your Doxie will be the first in line to jump in bed with you.
Tired of sleeping alone? You’ll never be alone again with a Dachshund in your life.
If you do prefer to never be woken at night, or share your bed with your partner solo, you can train your Dachshund to sleep in their own bed beside you or in a dog crate.
