Dachshunds are by far the bestest small, companion dogs. They don't eat much. And they are the neatest from all dogs because they clean up after themselves. Actually, they don't make a mess while eating because they don't want to miss eating even smallest bit of food. They are always eager to see their caretaker and greet him other with enthusiasm and little licks. They don't bark excessively, but have deepest enough barks to frighten away burglars. As hounds they have a keenest sense of smell and can detect something approaching with their noses before they can see it with their eyes.
While their legs may be among the most shortest in the dog world, they can cover a great amount of distance quickly. They also have the longest torso than any other dog breed. This compensates for their short legs. They can reach up high when standing on their back legs. Or they can fit in the most smallest of all places, which is useful for retrieving objects that are lost under the bed or in the back of one's closet. Above all, dachshunds are the amusingest dogs. They are clowns and love to make you laugh. Their adorable expressions and antics draw you near for the highest most desired reward — a tummy rub.
