Botzensteiners Dachshund Kennel

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

About Breeding

Dog breeding is looked upon controversially. Its opponents like to point to populated animal shelters and manifold dog misery in Germany and the world…


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.


Botzensteiners Hilda belongs to the stronger ladies of the normal size. Nevertheless, she does not lack sportiness and enjoys water and loves to have wild chases with her litter sister Henny.

About Feeding

The dog is essentially a carnivore and has a specialized digestion and physiology. Anyone who cannot cope with this should refrain from keeping dogs…

About Dapple Dachshunds

The term “Dapple Dachshund” is used to describe dachshunds whose coat colour is lightened in irregularly formed patches…


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


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.


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.


Honey is an anatomically excellently built, light and elegant dachshund lady with an excellently pigmented brown coat and a friendly, as Brigitte once quite rightly said, funny nature…

World Dog Show 2012

Salzburg, that’s it. World Dog Show 2012. When you’ve already got dachshunds by more luck than good sense that stand out from the crowd and got acquainted with a breeder who took it upon herself to organize accommodation so that all you have to do is get in the car, then you shouldn’t shy away from traveling.


“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”


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


Nella is the intrepid secret ruler in the pack. Whether at the world winner exhibition in Salzburg, the Bundessiegerausstellung or elsewhere, she has always achieved an “excellent” in her class.


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.


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 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.


Engels Isiris, called Olga, is the resting pole in the pack. The brown-dappled standard bitch has an unshakeable character and rests completely in itself.


Engels Fiorenza, daughter of Honey aus Dörnchen and Timm vom Bäckersäckel, is a strong Amazon with a passion for physical work. Especially water work seems to be in her cradle. She does not spend a long time looking for an entry into the water, but constantly sets new records leaping into it.


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.


Hatshepsut was an egyptian pharaoh, whose name means “the first among the distinguished ladies”. Everything is said for us. Hatschepsut is the first bitch that we accompany completely live since conception and birth and we’re enjoying every single moment.

About Dachshunds

Dachshunds are bred in three hair types (long-, wire- and smooth-haired) and three sizes (standard, miniature and rabbit). The closest thing to “the” original dachshund, which did not exist in this form, are the smooth-haired dachshunds…

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.
