The dameranian is a mix between a dachshund and a pomeranian. This mixed breed is known for being quite diverse, which is largely due to the differences between the two contributing bloodlines.
In order to understand the dameranian, you will have to get what the parents are bringing to the table.
Dachshunds are known for their long torsos and short legs which is what earns them their “sausage dog” nickname. They can be traced back to Germany where they were bred for use as hunting dogs.
Over the years, they have become more like lapdogs and are fantastic family pets with their loving personalities.
Pomeranians on the other side have been among the most popular lap dogs for several centuries. They got their start in Europe and were particularly popular with aristocrats.
They are just as beloved now as ever with their endearing personalities and puffy aesthetic.
The dachshund pomeranian mix takes after the parents in many ways. Also known as the Pomaweenie, they often take after the doxie with the sausage dog build.
However, they may appear more like their pomeranian parents with a more proportional body.
Dameranian are generally small in size and weigh between 8 to 20 pounds and measure 12 to 16 inches as adults.
They may be larger or smaller than these ranges depending on the size of the parents used in the breeding.
The coat traits differ vastly depending on genetics and chance. The fur usually grows really thick and may be long, short, or wiry.
When it comes to the colors, some of the most common options include black, tan, blue, brown, gray, and white either alone or in different combinations.
