Dacshunds: the grippers' first recorded bait dogs



Quincy Daily Journal, Monday July 29, 1918, p. 6


Exit the Boch daschund from the society of Cincinnati dogdom.
No longer will the lengthy canines which tradition has associated with link sausages find company with decent fidoes. A U.S. marine corps poster was responsible for the German doggie's social demise here.
The poster depicts an American bulldog chasing a German daschund with the words, "Teufel Hunden (Devil Dogs), German nickname for U.S. marines."
Since the appearance of the marine poster, the local daschunds, of which there are a great number, have led a miserable existence as small boys have "sicced" bulldogs, terriers, hounds and every other breed of canine on the poor "Fritzies." Until at last they have been practically driven off the streets of Cincinnati.
