Meet the Dachshund is the first official publication endorsed by the American Kennel Club (AKC) devoted to the world’s favorite wiener dog!

Eleven chapters detail the history of the breed, characteristics, and special requirements for owning this colorful hound breed, beautifully illustrated with photos of puppies and adults.
