Dachshunds in the Movies

Do you think all of that cuteness wouldn’t find its way to the big screen?! Dachshunds, both animated and live action, have dug their way to the top by being quintessential, “we know that dog!” breed. Adults and children alike can watch a movie like Secret Life of Pets and know that our pal Buddy is indeed a Dachshund!

Secret Life of Pets (2016)

 

In the movie The Ugly Dachshund, a Great Dane puppy gets raised alongside his new Dachshund sisters. As they all grow up, he begins to take on all of their traits like walking closer to the ground, although he is a giant Great Dane that towers over them! He also likes to try to make his way into his owners’ laps as if he is the same size as his lap dog sisters and adoptive mother! The movie really highlights that Dachshunds are impressionable dogs and that if you are around them too long - you may just start acting like one, haha!

Famous for having that infamous look, Dachshunds are put into movies for the pure satisfaction that they are so funny to look at! I mean, who doesn’t love seeing those big, crazy smiles right up in your face?

 

Surprisingly, for the most part, when there is a Dachshund in a movie, the director stays true to the characteristics that make them so lovable in real life! Just like Buster in the Toy Story franchise, for example. He helps the toys whenever he can and is a stable, loyal companion to both Andy and Woody. Directors must either really adore the breed or already know them so well from owning a Dachshund themselves!
