The Alpine Dachsbracke, known in its native country of Austria as Alpenlandische Dachsbracke, is a small scenthound, bred to track deer as well as boar, hare, and fox. This dog breed contains the blood of very old strains of hounds as well as that of the Dachshund. It once was a favorite of German royalty.


This small dog has a slight resemblance to a Dachshund, with short legs and a long body. The coat is short and smooth except for the tail and neck.

Valid colors are black and tan, brown, or red with or without black.

It weighs from 15 to 18 kg (33 to 40 lb) and stands from 34 to 42 cm (13 to 16 in) at the withers.


Used effectively to hunt wounded deer, this breed could work even in harsh terrain. It makes a good companion, although it is primarily a hunter and therefore is kept mostly by hunters.
