How big a Dachshund Terrier gets depends mainly on the size of Terrier they are mixed with.
Larger terriers, like Poodles, produce larger mixed pups while smaller ones, like the Yorkshire Terrier, as expected have Doxie Terrier mixes lower on the size range.
However, this is not always a predictable outcome and it is not uncommon for a doxie bred with a larger breed to produce a relatively small mixed doggy.
Sometimes, the size of the dachshund also plays a role in determining how big the resulting mix can get.
The use of smaller varieties like the rabbit and miniature doxies more often than not results in mixed breeds that are smaller than those from standard doxies mixed with the same Terrier breed.
For example, when small weenies are mixed with small Terriers, the resulting mix may fall into size ranges as small as 8 to 16 pounds.
When standard doxies on the other hand are mixed with the same Terriers then the size range can be between 16 and 30 pounds with an average height of 11 inches.
Some of the small Terriers used in this case include:
- Boston Terrier
- Yorkshire Terrier
- White Terrier
- Rat Terrier
- Cairn Terrier
When standard Dachshunds on the other hand are mixed with medium and larger Terriers, a Dachshund Terrier mixed dog can weigh up to 32 pounds or even more.
Their height at maturity ranges between 11 and 15 inches.
They are also known to have longer legs than your average doxie. Some of the large and medium Terriers used for this size range include:
- American Staffordshire Terrier
- Airedale Terrier
- Jack Russell Terrier
- American Pitbull Terrier
