There’s nothing cuter than a puppy, and miniature dachshund puppies are even cuter than most puppies because they barely get bigger. One of the cutest things about puppies is how small they are, so it’s no surprise that miniature dachshund puppies are so popular. Even though they are fully grown, they are still tiny!

Dachshunds come in two sizes: standard and miniature. Standard Dachshunds weigh an average of 20-22 pounds, and Small Dachshunds average 10 pounds or less. These are adult weights we’re talking about, not small dachshund puppies.

Just like any newborn puppy, Miniature Dachshund puppies are very small at birth and don’t reach their maximum weight — up to 9 or 10 pounds — for a year or more. This is a very small dog that can easily be carried around. So, if you’re in the market for a puppy, a Miniature Dachshund might be the ideal breed for you.

Miniature dachshunds share the same characteristics as standard dachshunds, the biggest difference being their size. The maximum healthy weight for a Standard Dachshund is 30 pounds, with an average weight of about 22-25 pounds. The average miniature dachshund weighs only 8 or 9 pounds, and their maximum healthy weight does not exceed 11 pounds.

Maintaining a healthy weight is important for all small dogs, but is especially important for dachshunds, who have unusually long spines. Dachshunds have a slender back and short legs, which give them their signature “hot dog” shape. If they carry too much weight on their abdomen, it puts extra pressure on the back bones and spine, which can lead to injury. Dachshunds should also get help when climbing stairs and jumping on tall furniture, as this can also put extra stress on the spine over time.

Dachshunds are a friendly and intelligent breed, and their size makes them the perfect pet for apartment dwellers and anyone who doesn’t have a backyard and doesn’t want to jog in the park every day. Dachshunds do need daily exercise, but a short walk is enough. They are full of energy, but will never fall and drool on your guests, or run around the house and break knickknacks as they go.

Training dachshunds can be challenging, but it’s not because they lack the brain to learn. This is because they are smart and independent and don’t always see things the same way you do. For example, potty training can be very important to you, but sometimes — especially when it’s raining or cold — your dachshund just won’t agree. Always keep their favorite snack close at hand. This is the best way to convince your dachshund to do what you want them to do when you want them to.
