General Breed Information

The Westphalian Dachsbracke is a dog breed that originated in Westphalia, which is a region in Germany. The Dachsbracke was bred because of the need for slower and smaller hounds for hunting small game. The term Dachsbracke can also be taken to mean that this dog was bred by crossbreeding the Dachshund with the Bracken. The Westphalian Dachsbracke is the ancestor of another scenthound, the Drever. These dogs can be seen depicted in some old European paintings, but the Westphalian Dachsbracke was only first described during 1886. In 1935, this breed gained recognition from the German Kennel Club, and in 1987, it was recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale. It has also been granted recognition by the United Kennel Club.

Westphalian Dachsbrackes have a height ranging from 11.8 to 15 inches and a weight that is approximately 33 pounds. These dogs have a long, narrow head with a stop that is not pronounced. Their lips are moderately pendulous, and their nose bridge is slightly curved. These dogs have dark, almond-shaped eyes and medium length, wide ears that lie flat against their head. The neck of these dogs is moderately long and has no dewlap, and they have a long chest. Their tail is either carried erect or hanging down. They have a harsh and very dense coat that is shorter on their ears, head, and lower legs. The acceptable coat colours for this breed include yellow and red with a black mantle or saddle, along with white markings.
