The officially recognized “oldest dachshund” is a 21-year-old doxie-mix named Chanel from New York. The old pup was even featured in the Guinness Book of World Records as the “World’s Oldest Dog” and not just the oldest dachs.
Dachshunds are one of the breeds with the longest life expectancy. With the proper care, a dachs can live up to two decades. This is amazing if you want a companion pup to grow together with a small child.
