Guys I've the opportunity to purchase a wirehair dachshund bitch from a choice of two. They are quite rare down here with fully imported british/american lines. The two bitches in question, one has very smooth hair and I was told will be a pin hair and the other looks quite rough.
They are not a hunting line but owner tells me the pin hair will require almost no maintenance and for hotter climate down here it will be a better choice.
What are the pros and cons of the different hairs for hunting and maintenance?
