With short legs and a long body, the Dachshund stands out. This distinct appearance has led the breed to be referred to by many as weenie dog or sausage dog. Good humored owners often choose a name related to sausage products. Frank, Dodger, Oscar, Mayer, and Vienna are a few of the more common sausage related dog names. The Dachshund was bred to hunt badgers and other small prey. A couple of badger names from literature include Brock (from the graphic novel ‘Fables’), Digger (from the stories of ‘Thornton Burgess’), and Boomer (a character in the children’s magazine ‘Ranger Rick’). A few badger name ideas from television are Furrow (from ‘Garfield and Friends’), Tuck (from Disney’s cartoon version of ‘Robin Hood’), and Clive (a lawyer from ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’). Mascot badger names include Urbie (The Wildlife Trusts), Howie (Calgary Roughnecks), and Billy (Fulham Football Club). The modern Dachshund is a derivative of German breeders and also a common symbol of Germany. Some popular German dog names for the breed include Kaiser, Dackel, Teckel, and Katrin.
