More than 200 of short-legged, long-bodied breed, nicknamed the sausage dog, were in attendance at the debut of the event which was held at the Centre Paws at Barnards Farm on Saturday.

Tails were very much wagging as dogs took part in everything from racing to a fancy dress competition for owners and their four-legged friends.

The event was organised by primary school teacher Kara Tooley, from Sparham, who is one of the administrators on the Dachshund around Fakenham social media group.

She said: "It went really well everyone seemed to have lots of fun. We had some hilarious entries in the dog show for the best dressed including a bride and groom and a man in a Hawaii themed outfit with his dog."

The party has raised £2,200 for the Red Foundation, who rehome dachshunds, and the Dachshund IVDD charity which supports dogs with back problems which is common in the breed.

Kara, whose own dog Lola took part, added: "We just do it because we love the breed and we want to raise as much money as we can."
