Dachshund and Cocker Spaniel

The Docker is a happy dog that enjoys making new friends and going for walks. They can be stubborn at times, don’t respond well to harsh treatment, and can quickly develop problems with anxiety. They usually stand about 12 inches tall, but their height can vary depending on which parent they take after more.

2. Dachsweiler (Rottweiler x Dachshund Mix)

Dachshund and Rottweiler

The Dachsweiler is another pup that can vary considerably from one dog to the next, depending on which parent they favor. They’re usually muscular with a sturdy body and an alert temperament that will make an excellent watchdog, but they also have a playful side and enjoy being around family members and showing affection.

3. Papshund (Dachshund x Papillon Mix)

Dachshund and Papillon

The Papshund is an attractive mixed breed that usually has the Papillon’s butterfly ears and the Dachshund’s long body. They have plenty of energy for games, love to horse around with other family pets, and will usually be coaxing them to play. However, they can become mischievous if left alone too long, and it’s easy for them to injure their long back during rough play.

4. Welshund (Dachshund x Welsh Terrier Mix)

Dachshund and Welsh Terrier

The Welshund has almost unlimited energy and is one of the happier pups you will find anywhere. They’re also incredibly smart. However, they can be stubborn, making them difficult to train if you don’t get them into a routine early. They like to stay close to family members and love long hikes in the woods.

5. Dorgi (Dachshund x Welsh Corgi)

Dachshund and Welsh Corgi

The Dorgi is an adorable dog with short, smooth fur that is easy to maintain. Their long body is close to the ground, and their ears usually look too big for their head. Many owners describe them as stubborn, so they’re best suited for experienced users who can train them properly.

6. Dusky (Dachshund x Siberian Husky)

Dachshund and Siberian Husky

The Dusky is a friendly and playful breed with plenty of energy for catching balls or going for a walk. They have well-developed problem-solving skills and can learn ways to open closed doors, drawers, and cabinets. However, their intelligence can also cause them to be stubborn during training.

7. Toy Rat Doxie (Dachshund x Rat Terrier)

Dachshund and Rat Terrier

The Toy Rat Doxie is an interesting hybrid with a pointy nose and an intelligent expression. They’re affectionate but can also be independent, so they shouldn’t get too upset if you need to spend a few long days at the office. They’re loving but often pick one family member to obey at the exclusion of others, so they can be difficult to raise in a large family.

8. Dach Griffon (Dachshund x Brussels Griffon)

Dachshund and Brussels Griffon

The Dach Griffon is one of the more attractive breeds on this list. They have the round, fluffy head of the Brussels Griffon that almost gives them a werewolf-like appearance. Although affectionate with family, they have a strong protective instinct and will fearlessly defend you from any perceived threat.

9. Wire Foxie Doxie (Dachshund x Wire Fox Terrier)

Dachshund and Wire Fox Terrier

The Wire Foxie Doxie is one of the larger mixed breeds on this list, often weighing more than 20 pounds. They have a mild temperament and are calm yet eager to please. However, rowdy children can send them running for the hills. In some cases, the Wire Foxie Doxie can get aggressive, so it’s important to supervise them around small children and pets.

10. Shibadox (Dachshund x Shiba Inu)

Dachshund and Shiba Inu

The Shibadox has short hair and large ears that make them resemble a cat in some ways. They’re happy pups with plenty of energy for playing games, and they need to run around for a while to prevent them from gaining weight. However, they’re a healthy mixed breed with a long lifespan that often exceeds 15 years.

11. Golden Dox (Dachshund x Golden Retriever)

Dachshund Golden Retriever

The Golden Dox has many similarities with the Golden Retriever but in a smaller package. They’re alert and energetic, so you will need to put aside a considerable amount of time each day for playing and walking. Failure to get your dog the proper exercise can lead to weight gain and destructive behavior.

12. Doxle (Dachshund x Beagle)

Dachshund and Beagle

The Doxle is an amusing-looking dog with a wide head. They are one of the friendliest mixes on this list and will make a perfect addition to any home. Their coats are available in various colors and patterns, and the hair can also vary from fine to wiry. They’re protective pups that will benefit from early socialization to prevent them from becoming too protective, which can lead to aggressive behavior.

13. Bo Dach (Dachshund x Boston Terrier)

Dachshund and Boston Terrier

The Bo Dach is a low-energy dog and is better for smaller families that enjoy a lot of downtime. They love to sit on your lap or by your feet watching television. Their fur requires very little maintenance, and you will only need to brush it once weekly to keep it shiny. Some owners describe Bo Dachs as loud pups, but proper training early in life can help curb that behavior.divider-dog


As you can see, several mixed breeds use the Dachshund as a parent, and new mixes come out every day. Dachshunds are friendly dogs with a unique appearance, and most mixes keep the friendly and playful temperament that has made the Dachshund so popular.
