Dachshund Figurine | Mini Dachshund | Dachshund Replica - 3.75in. x 2in. - 1 Piece (sl251529)
This is a dachshund figurine from Safari Ltd.(r). Illustrations from medieval and early renaissance times show elongated dogs with short legs hunting badgers. Surely, these were precursors to today's dachshunds, badger dogs from Germany. They were officially recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1885 and grew in popularity in the years after, even as badger hunting all but disappeared. The other qualities of dachshunds, their playful energy and friendliness, ensured their continued success. Dachshunds are spunky, friendly dogs of the hound group. They have an acute sense of smell and excellent stamina. This mini dachshund is hand painted with fine detailing for a realistic look...and would be suitable for a range of interests, including collectors, enthusiasts, teachers, and kids. Admire it on a shelf, use it in the classroom, or simply enjoy playing with it. This dachshund replica is made out of hard plastic and is BPA/phthalate/lead free. For ages 3 and up. This miniature dachshund measures 3 3/4in. x 2in. and is colored a dark tan. This beautiful dog figurine would make a great gift for a dachshund lover!
