Our puppies come from a long line of registered canines who have enjoyed a loving, happy existence here at Heartfelt Dachshunds. The coat of the wire hair with the exception of jaw, eyebrows, and ears, the whole body is covered with a uniform tight, short, thick, rough, hard, outer coat but with finer, somewhat softer, shorter hairs (undercoat) everywhere distributed between the coarser hairs. The absence of an undercoat is a fault. The distinctive facial furnishings include a beard and eyebrows. On the ears the hair is shorter than on the body, almost smooth. The general arrangement of the hair is such that the wirehaired Dachshund, when viewed from a distance, resembles the smooth. Any sort of soft hair in the outercoat, wherever found on the body, especially on the top of the head, is a fault. The same is true of long, curly, or wavy hair, or hair that sticks out irregularly in all directions. Tail– Robust, thickly haired, gradually tapering to a point. A flag tail is a fault. Color of Hair–While the most common colors are wild boar, black and tan, and various shades of red, all colors are admissible. A small amount of white on the chest, although acceptable, is not desirable. Nose and nails–same as for the smooth variety.
Short, smooth and shining. Should be neither too long nor too thick. Ears not leathery. Tail–Gradually tapered to a point, well but not too richly haired. Long sleek bristles on the underside are considered a patch of strong-growing hair, not a fault. A brush tail is a fault, as is also a partly or wholly hairless tail.
The long haired Dachshunds coat is sleek, glistening, often slightly wavy hair is longer under the neck and on the forechest, the underside of the body, the ears, and behind the legs. The coat gives the dog an elegant appearance. Short hair on the ear is not desirable. Too profuse a coat which masks type, equally long hair over the whole body, a curly coat, or a pronounced parting on the back are faults. Tail–Carried gracefully in prolongation of the spine; the hair attains its greatest length here and forms a veritable flag. Color of Hair–Same as for the smooth Dachshund. Nose and nails–same as for the smooth.
