History

Dachs is the German word for "badger", while hund is the word for "dog". Dachshunds
are derived from the oldest breeds of German hunting dogs. Louis XVI owned a Poodle,
as well as Queen Anne of England. In the 18th and 19th centuries the breed performed
in numerous circuses, and known as a circus breed. In one circus a Poodle named
"Domini" was thought to be able to tell time and play dominos.
A Doxie-Poo is a cross-breed of a Miniature
Dachshund and a Miniature Poodle and may
demonstrate any combination of traits from
those two breeds.
