Dachshund mixes including Ratshunds, Doxles, Bo-Dachs, Bulldachs, Chiweenies and more

The Doxie News doesn’t get it, but for whatever their reasons, there are people out there who don’t want a plain old Dachshund. They prefer a Dachshund mix, a wiener dog crossed with another dog breed. For this reason, we’ve put together a list of some of the most popular Dachshund crosses, otherwise known as designer wiener dogs. That’s a Chiweenie on the left.

Toy Rat Doxie/Toy Ratshund Terrier

This designer dog is recognized by the ACHC (American Canine Hybrid Club) as the Toy Rat Doxie and by the DDKC (Designer Dogs Kennel Club) as the Toy Ratshund Terrier. More information can be found here. And you can also watch this video of a two-day-old Toy Rat Doxie litter:

Basshund

The Basshund is a cross between two long and low-slung breeds — the Basset Hound and the Dachshund. It’s recognized by the ACHC and the DDKC (Designer Dogs Kennel Club), and more information can be found here.

Doxle

The Doxle is a Beagle/Dachshund mix that is recognized by the ACHC and the DDKC . More information can be found here

In this video, two Doxle litter mates are reunited:

Doxie-Chon

What do you get when you cross a Bichon Frisé and a Dachshund? A Doxie-Chon? We’re not sure where that name comes from either. You’ll have to ask the ACHC or the DDKC. Or look for more information here

Bo-Dach

Cross a Boston Terrier and a Dachshund, and the results are wicked good. This mix is recognized by the ACHC and the DDKC . More information here

In this video,  a brave little Bo-Dach plays with a Rottweiler:

Chiweenie

Nicknamed the Mexican Hotdog, the Chiweenie may very well be the most popular Dachshund mix of them all. Needless to say it’s recognized by the  ACHC and the DDKC.

You can also check out Jäger, a feisty Chiweenie puppy:

Crestoxie

If you cross a Chinese Crested and Dachshund, the result — and it probably won’t be pretty — will be a Crestoxie. Nevertheless, it’s recognized by the ACHC and the DDKC. More information here.

Miniature English Bulldach

No one got too creative with the naming of the Miniature English Bulldach, which is what happens when you cross an English Bulldog and a Dachshund. The mix is recognized by the ACHC and the DDKC. There’s more information here

French Bull Wiener

If you prefer your Bulldogs French, then you’ll want a French Bull wiener (no relation to Dominique Strauss Kahn, btw). This mix is recognized by the ACHC. More information here.

Mauxie

Maltese plus Dachshund equals Mauxie with moxie. Recognized by the ACHC and the DDKC. More information here.

Here’s some Mauxie video as well:

To be continued as new and crazier Dachshund mixes emerge.

Of course you could always just opt for a plain vanilla Dachshund puppy.

    Donna,

    I don't have a problem with the existence of mixed breeds and, in some cases, I think they're a good thing, the Chiweenie for example.

    Purebred breeders have been responsible for a lot of damage so I think it's important to look at this on a case-by-case basis.

    Clearly, I'm not in favour of puppy mills churning out the latest trendy mixed breed but I'm also not in favour of puppy mills turning out Doxies with compromised backs and other hereditary defects.

    Dog Twitter,

    Sorry. I have a huge problem with both the BYB "designer dog" business, as well as the puppy mill business.

    I bred and showed smooth standard dachshunds for years, so if you want to call me a snob, that's fine. My interest in breeding was to breed to the AKC standard and improve the breed, not churn out a litter of puppies for money.

    AFA the trend on these mixed breeds goes, I'm currently fostering one of them from our local human society. This dog has major issues from both a conformation/structural angle and a set of emotional problems that are positively horrific. Oh. And he suffers from congestive heart failure and untreatable heartworms.

    And yeah. He was a puppy mill dog…a rescue from someone who mainly was interested in creating "designer" dogs to sell.

    So no. I'm seriously not in favor of what these people are doing. There are enough pets produced from reputable breeders without adding in the people who are just into legitimizing their mixed breed offerings.

    Many people would say this about purebred breeders.

    I believe puppy mills and irresponsible breeding are wrong.

    As for mixed breeds, it all depends. In some cases they are better than purebreds.

    ++Many people would say this about purebred breeders.++

    And I'd say if they are talking about most BYBs they'd be pretty accurate. I'm not. Sure there are show breeders that wouldn't be what I'd call reputable, but I can say that they are far rarer than your average BYB who just wants his bitch to have "one litter" or get his purchase price back.

    ++I believe puppy mills and irresponsible breeding are wrong. ++

    And that is, IMNSHO, what you're seeing here with the "designer" dogs. This is a trend. A search for the almighty dollar. And it is irresponsible. There are enough unwanted animals now that adding mixed breeds to the population is really reprehensible.

    ++As for mixed breeds, it all depends. In some cases they are better than purebreds.++

    I disagree, but like I said, you can call me a snob here if you wish.
