The Dachshund may have short legs, but it makes up for its small stature with huge amounts of character. The Dachshund was breed to hunt some very viscous animals, such as the badger, and as a result this breed is fearless. This however means they are often very stubborn and difficult to train. These little dogs are very loyal and dedicated to their owners, but if they aren't properly trained at a young age they will quickly take control of their home and start calling the shots. For such a small dog, they have been known to be quite aggressive if they haven't been properly socialized, but with a little work they can make for great companions. These little dogs need a short yet strong name, as it will be something they hear often. We would suggest picking a name like Duke, King, Hans, Queen, Alice, Eve, or Lisa.
