Why do they like dachshunds? Of course, for beauty: long back, proud profile, lovely ears! But at the mention of the golden character, the owners usually avert their eyes. Dachshund is a wayward and stubborn animal. Add to this the habit of resting in the owner’s bed, to which the dachshund has a historical right: dogs were taught to sleep in the bed in the 17th century. The pet was supposed not only to warm up on cold nights but also to protect the owners from rats.
