As one of the top 10 breeds in the United States, dachshunds are easy to find, whether it's a puppy or an adult you're looking for. It seems like everyone is selling them. Unfortunately, this is not a good thing. Too many people are interested in profiting financially from the breed's popularity, and puppies are sold literally as fast as they can be bred. This makes it difficult to find quality dachshunds with the health, temperament, and structural soundness you are seeking — unless you know where to look and what to look for.
