Dachshunds have oodles of personality, but one of the reasons owners love them so much is for their hilariously funny facial expressions!
So, what kind of faces do Dachshunds pull? Here are the top 10 Dachshund faces that every owner will know.
1. The ‘Stubborn’ Dachshund Face
The ‘Stubborn’ Dachshund face is a very familiar one!
You’ll also see this face when you tell your Dachshund it’s time for a bath!
Dachshunds will let you know very clearly when they’re JUST NOT DOING IT!
2. The ‘Greedy’ Dachshund Face
The ‘Greedy‘ Dachshund face is one you’re probably very used to!
You just have to remember this simple rule. What’s theirs is theirs, and what’s yours is also theirs!
Dachshunds want all the food or treats they can get, and will use their best facial expressions to manipulate you!
A Dachshund stare can last many hours. They’re determined and stubborn and always get their own way eventually (you may as well give up now!).
Dachshunds will always let you know when they want something!
3. The ‘Guilty’ Dachshund Face
The ‘Guilty’ Dachshund face will happen most days, because Dachshunds love to deny everything!
If your Dachshund rolls in poop and you notice a strange smell when he comes back inside, this is the face you’ll get!
You’ll also see this face when it’s raining outside and you find piddle on your favourite new rug.
Or when your Dachshund has chewed up his bed and pulled out all the stuffing (we’ve all been there!).
The thing is, you can’t ever get angry with your Dachshund.
You know he did it. He definitely knows he did it. But pulling that adorable little ‘guilty’ face is how he gets away with it!
4. The ‘I’m Furious’ Dachshund Face
Most Dachshunds hate baths.
In fact, if you make a Dachshund do anything they don’t want to do, they’ll give you their best ‘I’m furious With You’ face!
They won’t look at you or acknowledge you’re even in the room!
Even though Dachshunds let you know when they’re furious, it never lasts for long.
Give them a treat and a tummy tickle, and they’ll forgive you in a heartbeat.
Above all, Dachshunds are loyal and loving and can’t stay mad at you for long!
5. The ‘I’m Sorry’ Dachshund Face
Dachshunds do naughty things and that’s part of their adorable, cheeky charm.
However, they are always very sorry!
Dachshunds always give it away in their faces when they’ve done something wrong!
Your Dachshund’s ears will go back, his eyes will look sad, and you’ll instantly forgive his sorry little face!
6. The ‘I’m Not Listening’ Dachshund Face
Dachshunds have very selective hearing!
They can hear when you open a kitchen cupboard from a mile away, but can’t hear when you ask them to drop the poop they’ve just put in their mouths.
In fact, they can’t hear you when you ask them to stop rolling in poop either, even when you’re standing right next to them!
And they definitely can’t hear you when it’s time for a bath!
The ‘I’m not listening’ face is a classic that all owners will know and love!
7. The ‘I’m About To Cause Trouble’ Dachshund Face
The face of trouble is very familiar, with its upturned lip and half grin!
This is the face that says, ‘I’m about to do something naughty and know I’ll get away with it!’.
Your Dachshund may start charging around the house and won’t stop until you’ve stopped laughing!
Dachshunds are comedians. They know they’re funny and use that humour to get away with anything and everything!
8. The ‘Tickle Me’ Dachshund Face
The playful ‘Tickle Me’ face will come out several times a day.
Your Dachshund will roll on his back and stare at you until you tickle his tummy.
If you don’t tickle him, his feet will start shaking, his tail will start wagging and a grin will suddenly appear!
Pulling this adorable face will get your Dachshund all the attention he wants every single time!
9. The ‘Sleepy’ Dachshund Face
Dachshunds love to run around and play, but they also love to sleep – a lot!
Give them a blanket to burrow into and they’ll curl up underneath and fall sleep.
The ‘sleepy’ face means they don’t want to be disturbed – they need some shut eye now!
But if you could just tuck them in that would be great!
10. The ‘Loving’ Dachshund Face
Dachshunds are the most loving and loyal dogs that want nothing more than to be by your side.
Every morning when you wake up your Dachshund will look at you with the most heart melting, ‘loving‘ face.
If you show your Dachshund love, he’ll give it right back and more.
Dachshunds are the best companions and the best greeters when you walk through the door.
In fact, you’ll never be lonely with a Dachshund by your side!
