Of course it's fake! In the 1860's dachshunds were all red smooth!!

The race began with its formal organization when it was written in the Sink-Stammbuch Deutscher (the studbook pedigree dogs German), a standard of perfection for it. When presented with the first volume of this book of genealogical sources in 1840 included those with short hair and long hair. Half a century later, in 1890, were included coarse hair. Continued publication until 1935.

Lincoln did own a small dog named Jip who was described as being very clever. It would stand on it's hind legs and wave it's paws. It was very attached to Lincoln but I cannot find what breed the dog was. Being clever and loyal is what dachshunds do best so it's possible he may have owned one but I doubt it's the one in this picture.
