”Winston” is the name of this beautiful Dachshund who was rescured and had been selected to be put down. A telephone call to area Dachshund rescure group saved his life. Please when all possible adopt a pet. I really enjoyed this photo session Winston was a doll.
The name “dachshund” is of German origin and literally means “badger dog”, from Dachs (“badger”) and Hund (“dog”). Because of their long, narrow build, they are often nicknamed hot dog, wiener dog or sausage dog. Although “dachshund” is a German word, in modern German they are also commonly known by the name Dackel; in the case of the formally certified hunting and tracking rank, the name Teckel is used.
