Rabbit Dachshunds mimic their bigger counterparts in all aspects except size; with a diminuitive height of only 6 inches at the withers and a requirement that weight not exceed 11lbs they really are just smaller versions of the Standard Dachshunds.


In Germany the Dachshund is divided into three categories based on the size of the hole it can enter. The first category is the Standard Dachshund (Normalgrossteckel); while the second and third consist of the Miniature Dachshund which is further split into two categories.  The Dwarf Dachshund (zwergteckel) that measures approximately 11.8 inches around the chest and the Rabbit Dachshund (kaninchenteckel) measuring approximately 13.8 inches around the chest.
