Dachshunds, doxies, dox, wiener, wienie, sausage... Whatever you call them, dachshunds always bring a smile to those who see them. There is something very appealing about their unique shape, glossy coats, and lively personalities that make them perennially popular.
So, just who are the top 10 Australian mini dachshunds of Instagram? We've compiled a list of these sprightly little scent hounds that have the kind of followings that any TV presenter would envy. They are definitely social media darlings!
1. King Kingsley @kingkingsley__
This miniature long-haired doxie hails from the Gold Coast. At just under a year of age, this little fellow already has 52,000 followers! What we love most about him are his expressive eyes.
2. Arlo @arlo.thedachshund
Arlo is a tri-coloured dachshund with long, silky hair. She has nearly 17,000 followers and lives in Queensland. We love her bright coat color and how 'pettable' she looks.
3. Hamish @hamish_the_dachshund
This golden wienie was born with a bob tail, but his photos show him positively glowing with health and vitality. He lives in Perth and only has 2,100 followers. Give Hamish some love - we just adore his little smiling face!
4. Frankie @frankie.the.sausage
This wiener's person describes her as "Half a dog high, one and a half dogs long". How true! She may be short, but she has a mighty presence with over 65,000 followers! We love how she eats peanut butter from a spoon.
