Yes, Dachshunds are among the Top 10 Dog Breeds For Hunting. Many hunters in Europe use the Dachshund dog breed to track and hunt, while only some hunters in the USA use doxies as hunting dogs. Some hunters use a pack of dachshunds to hunt down their prey.

Depending on how long ago your dog was neutered, yes he can still breed a female after neutering.

However, even if he has no sperm, a neutered male dog can still get an erection and theoretically tie with a female dog.

This will not result in pregnancy if it has been more than a month since he was neutered.


Despite their size, dachshunds are known for their courageous nature and will take on animals much larger than themselves.

Some may be aggressive toward strangers and other dogs.

As family dogs, dachshunds are loyal companions and good watchdogs.

They are good with children if treated well.

The euthanasia medication most vets use is pentobarbital, a seizure medication. In large doses, it quickly renders the pet unconscious. It shuts down their heart and brain functions usually within one or two minutes. It is usually given by an IV injection in one of their legs.

Dachshunds are not typically good with strangers and are known for barking at unfamiliar people or animals.

However, since they like being in a pack, they get along with children and do well as family dogs.

Although Dachshunds make good family pets, owners should be cautious having them around small children.


The take home message here is that if you neuter your dog, don't worry, he can still have sex – if he wants.

Most likely he won't want to.

With the lower testosterone levels he won't have a red hot libido.

As a result, the general rule for neutered males is to keep them away from females in heat for 30 days.


In early bloat, the dog may not appear distended, but the abdomen usually feels slightly tight.

If the dog can belch or vomit, the problem is likely not due to the more deadly canine Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus (GDV), often mistakenly called "bloat," but that call should be make by a veterinarian.
