Dachshunds were bred specifically to hunt what wily mammal?

  • Rabbits
  • Chipmunks
  • Squirrels
  • Badgers correct

    The name "dachshund" is German, translating as "badger dog" or "badger hound." The shape and size of the breed makes sense for this purpose, as the dogs could often follow badgers into their holes and continue the pursuit underground. This made their short, long stature ideal for the role. Source: Merriam Webster
