Default six types of Dachshund...

NEW DACHSHUND LINKS

In the United States, there are, in total, six types of Dachshund.
They come in two sizes: miniature (less than 10-11 pounds) and
standard (all the rest, but usually above 18-20 pounds). In other
countries, there's wider variance in the sizes. In fact, in Germany,
the dogs are identified as either Standard, Miniature, or
Kaninchenteckel, based on a chest measurement taken at the age of
fifteen months. For each size, there are three coats: smoothcoated,
longhaired, and wirehaired. The standard smoothcoated Dachshund is the
most popular in the United States. The coat is short, smooth, and
shining. There are two theories regarding how the standard longhaired
Dachshund came about. One theory is that smoothcoated Dachshunds would
occasionally produce puppies which had slightly longer hair than their
parents. By selectively breeding these animals, breeders eventually
produced a dog which consistently produced longhaired offspring, and
the longhaired Dachshund was born. Another theory is that the standard
longhaired Dachshund was developed by breeding smooth Dachshunds with
various land and water spaniels. In either case, the result was a
beautiful animal (admittedly I'm a little biased), with a coat
comparable to that of an Irish Setter and a temperament like a
spaniel. In general, longhaired Dachshunds tend to be more docile than
the other two coats, though I'm sure there are exceptions to this
rule. I consider myself very lucky, because Chillie is a standard
longhaired Dachshund with just such a temperament, especially indoors
when there are people around. Wirehaired Dachshunds were developed by
breeding smooth Dachshunds with various hard-coated terriers and
wire-haired pinschers. They look very wise, most notably due to their
beards and bushy eyebrows. The coat is wiry, short, thick, and rough.
Like their smoothcoated cousins, the wirehaired tend to be
mischievous. They come in red, black, or even dappled. Chillie has
both red and black hair. Interestingly, the red hair is softer and
finer than the black, at least in longhaired Dachshunds.

Wouldn't it be nice if puppy millers could quote their breed club's Code
of Ethics as well as they can parrot breed standards and histories?

"I will screen for inherited diseases as known in the breed and will not
breed dogs that are known to have/carry those diseases or screen for
them."

When are you going to tell us about the heath screening you did for that
pup? Your lifetime guarantees? What will you tell the new owners when
that dog's lousy rear turns into luxating patellas?

"I will not sell dogs or puppies without true representation to the
purchaser nor use misleading or untruthful statements in selling or
advertising."

Still parroting that puppy match win like it means something, aren't
you?

"I will not sell puppies to pet shops, "puppy mills," or laboratories."

Oh, now - there's a pity. You ARE a "puppy mill."

"I will screen prospective buyers as thoroughly as possible to determine
their desire and ultimate intent for each puppy or dog acquired from
me."

....at least as carefully as you can to make sure that the $1500 cheque
from some unknown on the internet clears before you get this adolescent
leftover out of your kennel.

"The buyer will agree that I will be contacted whenever an owner can no
longer keep a dog at any time in the dogs' life and it will be my
obligation as a breeder to take the dog back or arrange for its' care
until such time that the dog can be placed in a new home."

....and if you're having to stoop to spamming Usenet and advertising on
Yahoo classifieds for a home for this dog - I'm sure you have plenty of
well-screened backups in place if the dog doesn't work out in its new
home. Not.

"Pet puppy purchasers will be strongly encouraged to spay or neuter all
pet quality puppies and such puppies will be sold with the AKC Limited
Registration and/or spay/neuter contract."

Of course, this one isn't pet quality. It got a Group 3 at a Puppy
Match! Haw.

Absolutely pathetic.

Actually s/he can't even do that right. Dachshunds are shown in six
*varieties* in the US, not in six "types".

Most people who want
a pet (whether it is also going to compete or not) form an emotional
atachment to the dog they select. And they want that dog to live a long,
healthy pain free life. If one chooses to go to a breeder for a dog a
buyer has choices. They can work hard to find a breeder who has the
knowledge and caring to breed for good health, or they can forget about
health and only look at the surface.

A breeder who has both knowledge and concern about their breed will
actively contribute to means of breeding for good health. Good breeders
don't wait for people to complain, they take proactive steps to do their
best to reduce the risks that problems will occur.

A good careing knoweldgeable dachshund breeder will check for problems
frequently afflicting the dachshund, specifically
(1) PRA, (2) Luxating patella, (3) thyroid disorders, and (4) vWD and then
record those results in a publicly accessible database. All the more to
contribute to the health and welfare of the breed.

My six year old dachsie just had his third back surgery for a ruptured disk.
His x-rays every year show the cartilage in his spine getting more and more
calcified. Even moving the bed to the floor and a no jumping law, strictly
enforced, did not help after the first rupture. An irresponsible "hobby"
breeder gave him to my parents "for free" six years ago. After about $9,000
in medications and surgery, I can still say he is worth it. But the
emotional pain to me and the physical/emotional pain to my boy have been
tough to live through.

I will never consider a pure breed again without exhaustively researching
the breeder. And I think a rescue dog will be more likely for me.

I can understand your anguish, but just as a point of note, there are no
guarantees with any dog. Mixed breeds aren't inherently healthier than
purebreds--especially well-bred purebreds. Rescue is a wonderful thing
to do, and I wish you the best of luck. Just don't go into it thinking
that you will automatically be getting a healthier dog...

Hi Robin,
I understand that angle. But I would feel a bit better about saving a dog,
who would make a good companion, from death. Paying for another puppy who
might still end up with health problems just bothers me. The cute puppy
time is so short. I won't even go into pet stores on the Saturday adoption
days. I am leaning towards spending my love/dollars to help a rescue
Dachsie next time. But I am sure 90% of the posters here feel the same way.

If by "pet stores on the Saturday adoption days" do you mean places like
PetSmart and Petco that allow Rescue Groups to come in and get exposure for
their animals on weekends? That is, IMHO, a wonderful place to find a rescue
dog.

OTOH, if you mean places like Petland that have the "puppies for sale"
cubicles that they get from BYBs and puppy mills, I wish there were a way to
shut those all down.

captive bred. And all that can be changed. The fish, likely not so
(99% of any fish you get is going to be wild caught, because they just
don't breed well in captivity. Some exceptions are goldfish, guppies,
maybe bettas. I'm not really up on my fish, I'm involved in reptile
rescue and dog rescue).


Nearly all of most common freshwater aquarium fish species are bred in
captivity, and have been like that for decades. Goldfish, guppy, swordtail,
platy, most types of mollies, betta and other common labyrinth fishes,
angelfish, discus, tiger barb, neon tetra - more than 99 % of these are
bred and not wild caught. Many fish are very easy to breed in captivity,
some even so easy that it is not too clever to keep males and females
together as you can't find homes for all the fry (krib, bristlenose pleco).
But naturally that won't happen in the normal badly run home tank with too
many fish and dirty water.

Marine fishes are a different story, and there really have been very bad
environmental problems with their catching. Luckily some species can
nowadays be bred too, and wild catching is getting more regulated in some
important areas.

AND...just to add to her questionable credentials, this breeder
plagiarized, word for word, our COPYRIGHTED web site page on dachshund
history and posted it on her own web site as her own work.

I notified her of the copyright violation last week, and asked her to
remove the page from her web site. Instead, she posted a LINK to her
stolen page on this very group page! See the thread about the exact
origins of the dachshund, started on October 12.
http://www.google.com/groups?as_umsg... ng.google.com

(By the way, you will see my name and e-mail address, as it was sent
to her on the e-mail informing her of the copyright violation, at the
bottom of the article that is actually displayed on the message board.
I did not write that article!)

So not only is this breeder unable to read about ethics in breeding --
she also can't read about ethics in terms of plagiarism! Can you
imagine how it galls a rescue group to have our original, copyrighted
work displayed on the web site of a breeder like this?

Interestingly, the owner of this kennel is a Presidential Scholar at
SMU. SMU takes integrity so seriously that they display the entire
text of their Honor Code on their web site! Of course, it includes a
section on "honest writing," plagiarism and the like. It's shocking
to me that a university with a reputation as stellar as that of SMU
would have chosen someone who plagiarizes, then proudly POSTS her
plagiarized work on a public forum, for such an honor. I wonder
whether they know...
