Smooth Coat/Short Hair
About Smooth Coated Dachshunds
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.
