Dachshund (Ger. badger dog), a breed of dogs introduced into England by Prince Albert about 1850. They are allied to the Turnspit (q.v.), but have the points of that breed exaggerated, and the fore-limbs are bent outwards at the wrist. The body is long, the legs short, with strong paws well fitted for digging, and the head with its long-drooping ears is not unlike that of a bloodhound pup. The favourite colours are black and tan, and brown.

“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
John 3:17
