Few things are cuter than a dachshund's long body atop his teeny tiny legs. You can't help but smile (and laugh) when their big personalities come waddling toward you. Commonly called wiener or sausage dogs, the name "dachshund" is German and is pronounced DAHKS-huunt. However, here in the United States, we often pronounce dachshund, "dox-on". In fact, our only complaint about this breed is that the spelling doesn't match the pronunciation. (Ok fine, it's just this writer's complaint because she keeps spelling it wrong.) Point is, whatever you call them, these dogs will win your heart in record time. Here are some names that reflect their hilarious personalities.
