This very old German breed is said to be the offspring of crossbreeding between medium-sized scenthounds and Dachshund types. Regarded as a smaller version of Deutsche Brackes, Westphalian Dachsbrackes got their own standard in 1910. They correspond to the larger dog in all essential points, but give the impression of being more compact and more powerful.Westphalian Dachsbrackes are strongly built hunting dogs of moderate length and noble head that carry their tail upward in the form of a saber or drooping with a light curve at the tip. Their face bears a loyal, friendly, serious and attentive expression.
