A museum dedicated to the dachshund, Germany’s short-legged, long-bodied “sausage dog”, opens next week.

The museum is located in the southern city of Passau, and will show more than 2,000 exhibits from dog-shaped bread to a giant golden statuette.

Two sausage dog owners and former florists gave up their jobs to open the museum.

Visitors will see canine stamps, artistic prints with sausage dog motifs, handmade puppets and porcelain figurines.

One of Germany’s oldest breeds, the dachshund can be long-, short- or wire-haired and is one of the country’s most popular dogs.

Bred for hunting since the Middle Ages, dachshund translates literally as ‘badger dog’ and their long snouts allow them to burrow into holes to catch small animals.
