Breed Profile: Dachshund

The Dachshund is a scent hound breed that was created to hunt tunnelling animals such as badgers, rabbits, foxes, and so forth, with Dachshund packs also being used to hunt wild boar. The versatility of this breed today makes them fantastic family pets, show dogs, as well as small game hunters.

Breed Profile: English Bulldog

Originally, Bulldogs were used by farmers to drive cattle to market, and also to compete in a grisly sport called bull baiting. Unlike their ancestors, Bulldogs of today are gentle, playful creatures who love being with children. They are not very active dogs at all, and are more than happy to take a short walk every day, and spend a lot of their time sleeping.
