Names are just smoke and mirrors, they say. This is not the case with our ” Freudenfeuer” (bonfire). Here, the name tells the story.


Dusty is a large-framed brown standard male with excellent muscling and exceptional coat both color and quality. If he wouldn’t had a stupid preference for chewing pebbles, you could speak of an ideal set of teeth as well.


Miniature dachshund Edith is a daughter of the unfortunately much too early injured Multichampion Engels Tango, who is still looking for his equal, and Germandachs Nella Bella. Here two offsprings of the kennels that have determined dachshund breeding not only in Germany in the last decades have come together.


A black and tan miniature dachshund lady, sporty and elegant with a very good coat, clean and dark red markings, good bone strength and substance, supple and full of energy, that is Botzensteiners Matilda.


Our Lieselotte has everything that can reasonably be expected from a breeding bitch of normal size. She is also economical in maintenance. Why that? Well, as a dappled dachshund it has never been easy at exhibitions when it comes to first places and thus subjective liking. Not every judge likes the spotted drawing.


Botzensteiners Enzo is red-dappled. This is a very bad prerequisite for a show career, especially when he is first addressed as red and then has to be corrected. With good judges, however, he gets his “excellent” and deserves it.


Thusnelda comes from the combination of Big Bad Woof Empire of Glory (FCI) with Engels Isiris. She is a “Corona dog”, meaning she was born when the world had no idea that soon after “social distancing”, “contact restriction” and “distance teaching” would become common everyday vocabulary.


There are miniature dachshunds where opinions tend to differ sharply. Chlodwig is one of those. Chlodwig’s chest circumference is at the upper end of the miniature dachshund scale and to ensure that nothing changes, he trains as much as he can. He loves to dig for his life and is a real water freak.


Botzensteiners Henny, named in honor of Henny van Breukelen, is a black and tan bitch of normal size. With her 40cm chest circumference and still 7.5kg she represents the newly desired lighter dachshund type.


“An expressive bitch in best substance and condition, pronounced forechest; she convinces with brisk, steady movements, best standing and underlines the best upper and lower line”


Xenodike is the youngest offspring from a kind that is particularly widespread among short-haired miniature dachshunds. She doesn’t ask. She assesses the situation and then does; she has no doubts, but rights and otherwise she does her own thing, as they say


Hotzenplotz is the hobbledehoy among our miniature dachshunds, always alert and quick as an arrow, but not without a certain grandeur. Of course, this only comes into its own when the first three rounds of the terrain have been completed
