Dachshund Conformation 101

While we don't claim to be show dogs, we're fascinated to read articles about what we're supposed to look like. This great old article Dachshund Conformation, by Kaye Dore, was originally published in The Favorite Issue, a supplement to The American Dachshund, April, 1953. We're not sure if these standards still apply today, but enjoy the interesting text, diagrams, and illustrations. Click on each image to enlarge and read.

Thanks for sharing this. It's so neat to see the historical information about the breed. I have a 1932 book on dachsies translated from German that is just fascinating.
