40 Dashing Dachshund Mixes – The Best Dachshund Mix Guide

There’s no denying that Dachshunds are one of the most iconic breeds in existence. With their elongated bodies and short legs, well, you know the deal. After all, what other dog breed has a nickname as cool as the “hot dog?”

Though with the rise of designer hybrid breeds, you now have a chance to get all the fun of a Dachshund combined with qualities of another breed. It’s the best of both worlds. Doxies are known for their clever and playful nature, which is a nice trait for a companion.

But while it can be overwhelming picking the perfect Dachshund mix, don’t worry. We’ve put together an exhaustive list below. Given the popularity of these dogs, there are plenty more. And if we’ve missed one, make sure to let us know in the comments section below.

RECOMMENDED: 21 Most Interesting Dog Mixes

Dachshund Mixes

As mentioned, this is not the definitive list of Doxie mixes. There’s an unlimited number of possible combinations. However, these are the most popular Dachshund mixes plus a few mutts that we think are the most interesting ones.

1. Pekehund

Parents: Pekingese x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @sproxtagram

Though they have yet to be recognized by the American Kennel Club as an official breed, Pekehunds are a great way to start this list. Known for a unique appearance, these dogs are something you don’t see every day.

This cross between a Pekingese and a Dachshund is a family-oriented dog that displays a more mild temperament. Neither lazy nor bursting with energy, Pekehunds strike a unique balance as a lively, yet manageable dog.

As with most of the other breeds on this list, their appearance will vary depending on the variety of Dachshund they have as a parent. Coat texture and length can both vary a bit, especially considering the Pekingese’s extravagant coats.

2. Dashalier

Parents: Cavalier King Charles x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @lady_thefoxydoxie

This 21st Century breed may be new, but they are well on their way to warming the hearts of owners all over. Dashaliers are bred as companion dogs, but they still bring the smarts of both parent breeds to make for easy training.

As a companion breed, Dashaliers thrive off attention, and don’t do well in quiet, empty households. They are rather social, and need a healthy amount of human interaction to stay happy. Make them the center of attention and they’ll love it.

But this also means they do great in families with younger children or even other pets. So long as they have someone to play with, they’ll be good to go. Few Dachshund mixes are as social as the Dashalier.

3. Papshund

Parents: Papillon x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @totallyfinntastic

Both parent breeds of Papshunds sport rather unique features, and they both often carry over to the pups. So expect to see Papshunds with the long body of the Dachshund and the trademark butterfly ears of the Papillon.

These dogs have plenty of energy and love to socialize, but they also can be high-strung with a sensitive side. Gentle treatment, such as positive reinforcement works best with them, otherwise they might become anxious.

Though they love frolicking outdoors, they aren’t the sturdiest of dogs. You’ll want to make sure to keep an eye on them so they stay out of trouble. Plus, rowdy young kids may injure this dog – so parental supervision is needed.

4. Shethund

Parents: Sheltie x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @arthastheshethund

Both of a Shethund’s parent breeds served for many years as hunting and herding dogs in the past. With this kind of heritage, dogs of this breed are going to be wicked smart and of course, very energetic and active.

The downside is that they also have some hunting instincts leftover from that time. So if you have smaller animals around the house, early socialization with them is a must. The prey-instincts may come out with a hamster in the home.

But on the bright side, this Dachshund mix has strong loyalty to the owners. Despite their smaller size, they are ready to protect them from anything. However, don’t expect them to be formidable guard dogs.

5. Dachsweiler

Parents: Rottweiler x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @boo_the_dachsweiler

One parent is large and bulky, the other long and slender. These two parent dog breeds are very different. With that in mind, you can guess how the Dachsweiler might vary wildly in appearance compared to another.

The most striking ones take after their Dachshund parent for body shape, but take after the Rottweiler parent in terms of bulky muscles. Also from the Rottie side, Dachsweilers bring an evening out of their temperament, along with a hint of a playful side.

They might require early socialization and consistent training, but overall they are a highly affectionate hybrid and loyal protectors. Thanks to the Rottweiler side, expect a vigilant dog that’ll make a decent watchdog.

6. Doxie-Pin

Parents: Mini Pinscher x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @lillemonator

Other Doxie breeds are quite social, but this one can be a little more reserved. However, that doesn’t mean Doxie-pins aren’t just as affectionate as any other breed on this list. The Doxie-pin can be a bit more cautious.

They still show a caring and even curious nature, but don’t expect them to be the life of the party. Some might see this as a sign of shyness, but we prefer to think of it as simply a well-balanced temperament.

That is not to say they don’t have their moments. Naturally inquisitive, if you take a Doxie-pin out on a walk, there’s no telling where you’ll end up. And in the home, they’ll be happy to lounge around with you for hours.

7. Docker

Parents: Cocker Spaniel x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @this_dashing_dachshund

Dockers are the gorgeous cross between the Cocker Spaniel and Doxie. Cocker Spaniels are known for their sweet, happy demeanor, and you can definitely see this manifest in a Docker. But, the Dachshund brings a hint of boldness into play.

From both the Cocker Spaniel and Dachshund side, Dockers might have a measure of a stubborn streak. For training they respond best to positive and consistent input, whereas overbearing styles can make them anxious.

In appearance, there is room for variation and it depends on pulling traits from both parents. But on average they tend to at least stand about 12 inches tall. Coat texture and color will also depend on parentage.

8. Dachsi Apso

Parents: Lhasa Apso x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @ozil_and_bixby_show

Despite their portable size, Dachsi Apso dogs are filled to the brim with courage. However, the confident outgoing demeanor can manifest into barking if not trained early on.

Dachsi Apso dogs have plenty of other ways of letting out their personalities. Not only are they playful, but can thrive around children, for example. Whatever you have in store for the Dachsi, you can be sure they’re up for it.

And they are energetic without being over the top. So long as they get plenty of attention and a moderate amount of exercise, they will be a calm, cuddly companion. You may never have a dull moment with a Dachsi.

9. Doxie Chon

Parents: Bichon Frise x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @dollar.the.doxiechon

With both Dachshunds and Bichon Frises being known for their big personalities, you can be sure that this hybrid of the two will follow the trend. The Doxie Chon is a fantastic dog and they know it too!

Fearless, playful, and irrefutably social, Doxie Chons make great pets for families in both country and city areas. That is, so long as they aren’t left alone for long periods. These dogs do best with careful and regular attention.

So, they’re great for families with children, but perhaps not infants or toddlers, as they are quite sensitive dogs. Though with older children, the Doxie Chon will make wonderful play-mates. Still, early socialization will be necessary.

10. Jackshund

Parents: Jack Russell Terrier x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @frankiejackshund

Though both of a Jackshund’s parent breeds were bred for hunting, they were different types of hunting. Dachshunds thrived in tunnels whereas Jack Russells were dauntless in bolting foxes from their dens.

But combine the two, and you’ve got a well-rounded hybrid that is both smart and sneaky athletic. The Jack Russell side might bring a bit less sociability with it, but nothing that can’t be solved with early socialization.

However, families with small children or who are less experienced with raising dogs might want to start off with a less spirited dog breed. Jackhunds can be a handful, especially with obedience training early on.

11. Doxie Cairn

Parents: Cairn Terrier x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @mia.thedoxiecairn

The Doxie Cairn is one of the most interesting Dachshund mixes. On the Cairn Terrier side, you can expect a penchant for more activity in this hybrid breed. Though the playfulness of a Dachshund also shines through for a winning combination.

The Doxie Cairn can be on the stubborn side, and might not do well in cities since they are also known for barking. For apartments, find one of these dogs instead. If they take after their Cairn parent, expect a more regular brushing for their wiry hair.

Because of this they are a better fit for owners who are ready to spend some more time with such maintenance activities. Don’t think of it as a chore, but rather a time to bond with your Doxie Cairn. It’s totally worth it for these dogs!

12. Miniature Schnoxie

Parents: Mini Schnauzer x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @rhodri_the_schnoxie

Bringing in the charismatic nature of the Miniature Schnauzer, this designer dog balances out with the more comical stature of a Dachshund. Though they remain smaller in size, the stature is quite solid and sturdy.

If they take after their Miniature Schnauzer parent for their coat, they can be hypoallergenic. This, along with their readiness for learning, makes them an excellent option for a wide range of potential owners.

At times, the Miniature Schnoxie can be quite vocal, it can take some consistent training to settle them down. But aside from this, they are a relatively low-maintenance breed filled with affection and spirit.

13. Doxiepoo

Parents: Poodle x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @rubylouthedoxiepoo

The Doxiepoo combines the elegant Poodle with the sassy Dachshund. With two intelligent parent breeds, Doxiepoos can be a joy to train, so long as you can put up with occasional stubbornness and mischief.

The Poodle side can also lend a hypoallergenic coat if it shines through to the pup. Don’t expect the overly poofy-ness to come across as well. Though, the curly coat of the Poodle is often inherited by the Doxiepoo.

Since both the two parent breeds are different in shape and size, you can expect plenty of variation in how Doxiepoos will look. But the good news is their temperaments are much more consistent: fun-loving, proud and energetic.

14. Doxiemo

Parents: American Eskimo x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @pickle_andie

The Doxiemo is a designer dog consisting of part Dachshund and part American Eskimo Dog. It’s not an obvious Dachshund mix that first comes to mind. As such, they can be a bit of a paradox at times.

From the Doxie side they can be more on the playful side, but from the American Eskimo side they can demonstrate a reserved nature. Depending on who they inherit more from, they’ll lean either way.

Their size can vary wildly, since the American Eskimo Dog is much taller than the Doxie. But one thing that is almost guaranteed is that a Doxiemo will be intelligent. Both parent breeds are known to have some smarts.

15. Dameranian

Parents: Pomeranian x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @angel_dameranian

Dameranians tend to be on the smaller side, largely thanks to both parents being short or tiny dogs. Their coat can differ from one to the next, but many agree that these dogs have a pleasantly sweet aura about them.

Much like their Pomeranian parent, they can display a cheerful demeanor that can light up any room of people. However, be sure to give them plenty of attention and don’t leave a Dameranian alone for too long.

For maintenance, be prepared to deal with some shedding (Poms are notoriously heavy shedders). Not the worst you’ll ever see, but enough to require the occasional grooming, such as brushing and bathing.

RECOMMENDED: 35 Perfect Pomeranian Mixes

16. West Highland Doxie

Parents: Westie Terrier x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @carmend90

West Highland Doxies are the unusual cross between the West Highland West Terrier and the Dachshund. This hybrid breed is super European. It blends the practicality of Germany with the rough endurance of the Scottish Highlands.

And, both these traits are evident in a West Highland Doxie. Despite their size, this small Dachshund hybrid is ready for work as a hunter, though training can take some effort. Both parents bring a bit of stubbornness into the mix.

Despite being good with children, they do better with older kids because their tiny stature can lead to them getting hurt by accident. However, given the seemingly unlimited amount of energy, they do make good playmates.

17. Toy Foxie Doxie

Parents: Toy Fox Terrier x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @brooklyn_and_dakota

The Toy Fox Terrier and Dachshund cross gives you a spunky yet adorable hybrid. Don’t be fooled by their sweet, rhyming name, this hybrid breed means business. They are known to pack a lot of energy, and can even lean toward being territorial.

Toy Foxie Doxies can also be somewhat noisy (constant barking), so they might not mesh to well with apartment life. However, if you’re willing to spend the time training, you can make it work despite their vocal nature.

Regardless, they are still Dachshund mixes. These dogs are known to be extremely active and show a powerful affection for their owners. Just be ready for their wild side to peek through from time to time.

18. Doxie Pit

Parents: Pit Bull x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @chico_the_mini_pit

The Pit Bull Terrier and Dachshund hybrid has a lot of people scratching their heads. This hybrid breed is still uncommon to come across, but the few examples that we’ve seen have provoked our interest.

Their bodies often look like a direct fusion of both parent breeds. In other words, they can have the muscle and intimidating heft of a Pitbull, but the short legs and elongated body of a Dachshund. Strange, isn’t it?

We only recommend them to more experienced owners, due to the stubborn nature of a Dachshund combined with the sensitivity of a Pitbull. They’ll demand an owner who knows how to be firm and consistent, but also loving.

RECOMMENDED: 29 Playful Pit Bull Mixes

19. Smooth Foxie Doxie

Parents: Smooth Fox Terrier x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @deb_does_kc

This interesting mix combines the liveliness of the Smooth Fox Terrier with the playfulness of the Doxie. This tiny hybrid breed is a zippy little dog. As such, there are a few things to know about these mutts before bringing one home.

First of all, they’re better for families without small pets or younger children. These dogs can become impatient with kids and have a strong instinct to chase small creatures like rabbits, hamsters and even smaller cats.

They’ll need to be frequently socialized from an early age. On the plus side, they can learn quickly. Firm and consistent training is still key, but if implemented, you’ll find that Smooth Foxie Doxies are ready to learn.

20. Dachsador

Parents: Labrador x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @dachsadorable

We love the Dachshund Labrador mix, otherwise known as the Dachsador. Packing all the charm that makes Labrador Retrievers America’s favorite breed, Dachsadors are energetic, friendly, and full of personality.

They are quiet and reserved when need be, but at other times, they can be fully active and up for fun and games. This quality makes the Dachsador one of the most adaptable Dachshund mixes you can find!

Additionally, with an easy-to-care-for coat, they won’t take time out of your day for regular maintenance. But, they require other basic grooming as with all dogs. Also, the Dachsadors might have more resilience against any health issues.

RECOMMENDED: 40 Loving Lab Mixes

21. Basschshund

Parents: Basset Hound x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @princess_magnolia_von_moo

Basschshunds combine the Basset Hound and Dachshund. First off, yes, that is a ton of consonants all in a row. So, good luck pronouncing the name of this special Dachshund mix. To make things simple, just call them “base hunds.”

That being said, Basschshunds can be very warm and friendly dogs. If they inherit the floppy long ears of a Basset Hound, they can have an even more amiable air. Physically, they’ll always inherit the short legs of Dachshunds.

The Dachshund side may bring along some stubbornness, so be prepared for consistency in training a Basschshund. Though, the Basset side may provide the inquisitive nature that make them such excellent tracking dogs.

22. Crestoxie

Parents: Chinese Crested x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @bernoulli_like_the_principle

Crestoxies are small dogs, but both parent breeds have tenacious histories. The Chinese Cresteds were for exterminating vermin aboard ships, and Dachshunds could do a number on badgers back in the day.

Because of this working history, Crestoxies are said to be people-oriented. They are smart and can learn quickly, but can also have a spirited and, often times, manipulative side to them. But, the mischief is all fun and games to them.

Like with any other stubborn streak, all it takes is patience and consistency. If you show you are the leader of the pack, a Crestoxie will fall into line and be well-behaved. Again, it will require firmness and consistency.

23. Mauxie

Parents: Maltese x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @kumaamonn

Compared to some other Dachshund mixes on this list, the Mauxie is much better suited to new owners. They are more even-tempered, easy to train, and adaptable. Even so, you’ll need to have some patience.

On the other hand, grooming is going to take some time. While not too difficult to deal with, their heavier shedding can demand more regular brushing. But its worth it to keep their silky, long coats looking good and healthy.

They have an animated temperament that comes out in plenty of love for their owners. But if you have younger kids, make sure they treat any little Mauxie with care. Like most Doxie mixes, they can be fragile.

24. Schweenie

Parents: Shih Tzu x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @famous_seamus_1215

A blend of East and West, Schweenies are the crossbreed of Shih Tzus and Dachshunds. They’re affectionate dogs, but they are not without their limits. Small children can get on their nerves if their aren’t considerate.

Otherwise, they’re focused on pleasing their owners and developing a strong relationship with them. They may have a small body, but their hearts are huge. And despite their thick coats, you might be surprised to hear they might not need much grooming.

The amount of exercise, while still important, can be kept to a minimum. So slower-paced families might make a great fit for this hybrid breed. We recommend them for senior owners that enjoy slow neighborhood strolls.

RECOMMENDED: 25 Royal Shih Tzu Mixes

25. Chiweenie

Parents: Chihuahua x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @buddybimbela

Both parents, the Chihuahua and Dachshund, are small. Perhaps the smallest dog on this list, a Chiweenie is a spunky little canine. Still, this hybrid brings together some of the defining characteristics of both parents.

From the Chihuahua side they can have a fiery disposition. This doesn’t mean they will be aggressive, but simply that they can display a bit of “spice” on occasion, especially if a child is bothering him.

But this liveliness can also manifest in affection for their owners, whom they are eager to please. After all, Chiweenies are known to be passionate dogs. But, there is also a chance of stubbornness from the Dachshund…so it’s up in the air.

RECOMMENDED: 25 Crazy Chihuahua Mixes

26. French Bull Weiner

Parents: French Bulldog x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @frenchbullweenie_winston

French Bulldogs are one of the most popular small breeds in America, so this hybrid makes a lot of sense. If there is one thing to be said about Frenchies, it’s that they are loads of fun. And odds are, they’ll pass this on to a French Bull Weiner.

Expect this hybrid breed to be lively with a penchant for playing hours upon hours on end. Outside of playing, they will also likely have a sunny disposition that is at once alert and reserved, making them adaptable dogs.

With a strong social side, they do well in larger families and can interact well with other pets too. Being the center of attention is something that these dogs enjoy. Just be sure that any younger children treat them with care!

27. Dorkie

Parents: Yorkshire Terrier x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @lolathedorkiee

The Dorkie is as adorable as its name. This tiny hybrid breed will rarely weigh more than ten pounds. Small and compact, Dorkies are great dogs for those on the go, as they can accompany you almost anywhere.

They are small enough that apartment life can suit them, but they will also appreciate space to expend some energy. The Doxie doesn’t require much physical activity, but daily strolls in the neighborhood is essential.

Yorkshire Terriers are also hypoallergenic dogs, and Dorkies are likely to inherit the low-shedding coats as well. So, they make great options for families that have members who suffer from pet allergies.

RECOMMENDED: 27 Adorable Yorkie Mixes

28. Doxie Chin

Parents: Japanese Chin x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @shaimless_wonders

This designer dog breed is a mix between the regality of the Japanese Chin and the iconic (short and long) stature of a Dachshund. The result is a wonderful blend of affection, loyalty, intelligence and playfulness.

This breed can be adaptable and will assimilate well in either house or apartment life. But if you don’t want fur covering your home, you may need to brush their coat at least twice a week. Both parents are fierce shedders.

A Doxie Chin is generally sweet-natured and cheerful, but they can also be sensitive. So harsh reprimands or training might only cause them anxiety and stress, which might lead to acting out. Don’t be fooled by the size, they can be destructive!

29. Bo Dach

Parents: Boston Terrier x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @harperthebodach

With an energy level best described as moderate, Bo Dachs are a great match for families that like to take things easy. They’ll still need occasional exercise, but for the most part they are happy to lounge about.

In terms of maintenance, they are also manageable. Brushing needs to happen only about once every week or so. However, they are known to be a more vocal dog and may not be the best choice for an apartment.

Barking isn’t necessarily a sign of stress for Bo Dachs. It often is just their way of showing their excitement or happiness. So harsh responses to it can really hurt their feelings. Just think of them as great communicators.

30. German Hund Pointer

Parents: GWH Pointer x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @stickstotherescue

This German-on-German hybrid breed is going to be one of the larger ones on this list. And as such, expect to spend more time with a German Hund Pointer in exercise.

However, they at least have a relatively easy maintenance level, requiring only occasional grooming. They’ll still need other basic grooming, such as teeth brushing and nail clipping, but it’s not too bad for most owners.

This breed can be tenacious and brave, as expected. After all, both parent breeds were originally bred as hunting dogs. So expect a certain fearlessness when it comes to the German Hund Pointer. But, it’s likely they’ll come with high prey drive.

31. Doxle

Parents: Beagle x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @likethespicysausage

Few breeds are known to be as affectionate as Beagles. So when combined with a Doxie, you can bet that some of that will be sure to shine through. Though temperament might be more consistent, their coats can wildly vary.

Expect all shades of brown, black, and even white. And then the texture can be fine, wiry, straight, or even a bit harsh. It all depends on inheritance from the parents, especially from the Dachshund’s side.

Doxles are affectionate and protective (from the Beagle side), so it might be a good idea to socialize them early on so they don’t become overly possessive or shy away at the sight of strangers or other animals. Socialization is key.

32. Golden Dox

Parents: Golden Retriever x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @sandythelilsandstorm

Crossbreeding the Dachshund with one of America’s favorite family dog breeds seems like a great idea, and it is! Alert and energetic, be ready for hours upon hours of play and or exercise for a happy and healthy dog.

However, Golden Dox owners will agree that the effort is worthwhile. These dogs display an intelligent yet affectionate disposition. Golden Retrievers are eager to please, but Doxies can be stubborn – which makes this balance perfect.

Aside from daily regular exercise, daily brushing is probably a good idea, especially if the Golden Dox has longer hair. Most likely, they’ll inherit the golden coat from the retriever side. And while the gold coat is a stunning one, it also sheds a lot.

RECOMMENDED: 35 Greatest Golden Mixes

33. Shibadox

Parents: Shiba Inu x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @designer_haus

This Shiba Inu and Dachshund hybrid might look like an odd combination on the outside, but in terms of temperament they are winners. Both parent breeds have a spunky side to them, which is surely to be inherited.

The bright attitude of a Shiba Inu will likely make an appearance, and if enough carries over, you can expect the Shibadox to also display a fastidious nature. Plus, the cat-like tendencies of Shibas might make the Shibadox more interesting.

They are generally healthy and easy to maintain. But still be prepared for weekly exercise to keep them from gaining weight. While small, both parent breeds were bred for hunting, and the mix will come with high-energy too.

34. Wire Foxie Doxie

Parents: Wire Fox Terrier x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @arizonabulldog

This hybrid is the combination of a Dachshund and, the third and final Fox Terrier on our list, the Wire Fox Terrier. The Wire Foxie Doxie will rarely go over 20 pounds. They’re slim, but tend to be a bit taller than a purebred Dachshund.

Their temperaments are mild and they’re fairly eager to please. If a small child gets up in their business though, they aren’t afraid to be snap back. So be careful around small kids. However, they are definitely not aggressive dogs by any means.

The Wire Foxie Doxies are simply self-respecting and value personal space. That being said, your small children may want to learn how to respect these dogs before playing with them. Remember, small dogs can be fragile with rowdy kids.

35. Dach Griffon

Parents: Brussels Griffon x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @planet.of.the.dogs

This Dachshund hybrid breed is an interesting combination of herding and hunting instincts. From the Brussels Griffon, the Dach Griffon will inherit some serious smarts, and from the Dachshund comes their fearlessness.

These mixes are great companion canines, though they can have a protective side. If they develop into overprotective dogs, this can manifest in barking. And if they notice any encroaching danger, they’ll be sure to let you know.

For any other times, the Dach Griffons are rather mellow and calm dogs. They can display bursts of energy from time to time, but won’t demand endless hours of exercise. However, this may depend on your Griffon.

36. Toy Rat Doxie

Parents: Rat Terrier x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @marissachan

Toy Rat Doxies combine two energetic small breeds: the Dachshund and Rat Terrier. With both parent breeds being bred to hunt, Toy Rat Doxies are sure to have sharp noses and a fearless demeanor with a love for chasing.

Their temperaments can be truly complex. At times they’ll be affectionate, and at others, independent. One moment they’ll be easy to train, and the next they’ll be stubborn. So be ready to have a handful of patience when raising a Toy Rat Doxie.

But through it all, this Dachshund hybrid remains lovable and few dog lovers can resist them. If you can keep up with the energetic personalities of these dogs, then they’re some of the best Dachshund mixes you’ll be able to find.

37. Dusky

Parents: Husky x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @heratheminiwolf

I’ll admit, this isn’t a common hybrid. But even so, there are a lot of positives about the Siberian Husky and Dachshund hybrid. For example, Duskies can be playful and clever, often surprising their owners with their ability to solve problems and entertain.

But because both parent breeds are known for having a stubborn side, Duskies will unfortunately inherit the same stubbornness. Dachshunds are quite willful and Huskies can be downright sly. So, they might be a better choice for an experienced owner.

Still, there’s a reason why Huskies and Husky mixes maintain a high appeal. Their pure vivacity is hard to match in the canine kingdom. And with the playful nature of the Dachshund mixed in, these may be the most fun-loving Doxie mixes yet.

38. Silkshund

Parents: Silky Terrier x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @anniem412

The Silkshund is the result of crossbreeding the alert Silky Terrier with the shrewd Doxie. Compact, yet energetic and lively, Silkshunds are a hybrid breed that brings together the best of two purebred lines. Not to mention, they’re adorable too!

Both parents have strong prey drives thanks to their old hunting dogs. So, you’ll want to socialize these dogs early on. Otherwise, don’t be surprised if they go chasing anything moving around the home. This includes small children.

Their energy can sometimes come out through barking, but that is nothing training can’t take care of. In due time, they’ll adjust if properly trained. Overall, their energetic and charming temperaments make them a winning breed that’s perfect for every family.

39. Dorgi

Parents: Corgi x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @hirothedorgi

Adorable with a side of dorky, the Dorgi is a hybrid breed with two parent breeds that are both long and low to the ground. While both parents share similar physical characteristics, the personalities of the two breeds are similar too.

Both parents are incredibly stubborn, but playful and energetic. From the Corgi side, you can expect a bit more packed-on weight, making for a more solid dog. But they’ll also have the brains to go along with the brawn.

And don’t underestimate their agility and speed. They may have short legs, but they can still move a lot quicker than you think. The Corgis were herding breeds, so be sure to provide the necessary exercise so they don’t pack on too many pounds.

40. Welshund

Parents: Welsh Terrier x Dachshund mix

via Instagram: @disarrayann

Welshunds, which combine the Welsh Terrier with the Dachshund, are a great way to end this list. These Dachshund mixes are highly spirited, intelligent and bring a contagious energy with them anywhere they go. You’ll never be bored with one.

This liveliness, often see in many terrier breeds, can sometimes turn into stubbornness. That is, if you don’t keep them in check, it could make things difficult down the line. Plenty of training and socialization is needed for Welshund puppies.

But if you put in the effort and time, you’ll be rewarded with a breed that’s both courageous and bold. In addition, they’re the type of dogs that seeks fun and adventure with their owners. If that’s you and your family, consider these dogs.
