  • Mixed dachshund breeds – an overview

    A hybrid breed is defined as a mix of two or more purebred canines. The breeds defined as “hybrid” are those accepted by the American Canine Hybrid Club. Although not all mixed dachshund breeds are recognized as hybrid, there are still many of them that are popular among dog owners and breeders.

    Miniature Schnoxie

    The miniature schnoxie is a mix between a dachshund and a miniature schnauzer. This breed can weigh anywhere from 11 to 18 pounds once adulthood is reached. They have a medium-sized dachshund body and a schnauzer coat. In general, miniature schnoxies are friendly and energetic dogs.


    The papshund is a hybrid dog made of the dachshund and papillon breed. This dog has a face that resembles the papillon and a long body like the dachshund. Papshunds can weigh between 6 to 12 pounds.  Their coat comes in three varieties; short, wire, and long. The papshund is a great companion often described of as a loving, protective, and energetic dog.


    Dameranians are a mix between the pomeranian and dachshund. The breed has a long, smooth coat, short legs, and a longer body. Dameranians usually weigh 8 to 15 pounds and have an average life span of 12 to 15 years. Although sometimes they like being independent, dameranians enjoy one on one time with their owners. They are also an extremely intelligent breed and learn quickly.


    A doxiepoo is made from a combination of two breeds; a dachshund and poodle. Doxiepoos weigh between 5 to 15 pounds and measure approximately 20 inches in length. This breed has various poodle characteristics, including its intelligence, wavy or curly coat, and minimum shedding. The doxiepoo’s outgoing personality and protective nature makes them an excellent family dog.

    Doxie Scot

    The doxie scot is considered a hybrid breed, as it’s made up of a dachshund and scottish terrier. A doxie scot’s coat comes in three different textures; wiry, rough, and fine. Coat color variations include; black and tan, red and white, brown, and black. Doxie scots make great lap dogs because they are affectionate and love attention.


    The schweenie breed is made up of two purebred dogs; the dachshund and shih tzu. A schweenie’s appearance can range between the two breeds. This dog can weigh between 9 to 20 pounds, measure 11 to 20 inches, and have a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years. Schweenies have a big personality, are forever loyal, and always eager to please their owner.


    The chiweenie is a mix between a dachshund and chihuahua. The breed has a long body and long ears like the dachshund and a short or medium coat. By adulthood, chiweenies weigh between 5 to 10 pounds and measure about 8 inches in height.


    The beagle and the dachshund are the two dog breeds that make up a doxle. Doxles can grow to be 16 to 18 pounds and measure 9 to 11 inches. They have a stout, long body with short legs and large ears. Doxles make excellent family dogs, as they are good with small children and love to play.

Most daugs have a long body with short legs, medium sized ears, and a curly tail. Their coat is short and comes in two colors; brown and black. Daugs are loyal dogs and can also be protective of their owners. The best thing about them is that they’re fairly easy to train and enjoy one on one time.

      I have a dachshund lab pom and possibly beagle mix. I was looking to find information on my little Steve’s strange mix. He gets along very well with other dogs but not cats. When he was younger he loved anyone and everyone but as he is getting older, he is 10 months now, he is starting to become very protective and barks at every stranger. If anyone knows anything I’d love to hear it.

      Hi, I have had an English Springer Spaniel, a Beagle, and now two Dachshunds and what your describing sounds how my Dachshund and Beagle are and was. My older weenie has gotten a bit crabby as he has gotten older. Weenies tend to gravitate towards one member of the house and this is my momma’s boy. He used to be better with kids but he had a bad experience with one that was a little rougher w on the petting. He didn’t hurt him, he was only 2 and not familiar with dogs so when i saw the “pats” to the head were a little too hard I took my pup away from the situation. Its understandable animals get a little crabby as they get older and tolerate less, they may have gone through a situation in which they left with an unfavorable memory, they get arthritis, tummy troubles, you know, all the things we get as we age. My beagle was never friendly to begin with, she and my older weenie are/were rescues. My beagle apparently too 3 days to catch by a fily out in the country ( I’m in Texas). She was placed with me because she was a rare beagle who really only tolerated me cuz I fed her, she just plain didn’t like anyone else. The rescue group knew I had experience with difficult animals so they placed her with me. I took her so she could live the rest of her life in a home. She has been my most difficult animal to date. She didn’t really like people and she really didn’t like other animals. After having her for about 3 years I decided to get a weenie( he is my older weenie) mostly because she had settled a bit and I really SAS after observing her that she wanted some type of friend but had some serious trust issues. Ive left a huge novel of response already so I will leave it here for now. If you want to ask me anything or here more of my experience just let me know. Hope you, and all your family ( pets are family too) are happy and healthy!!
