We’re back with two more LEGO® dogs to build – a dachshund and a mastiff!  (The mastiff could easily pass for whatever large breed you’d like it to be. 🙂 )

I can’t decide which one is cuter.

Our first LEGO® dog post featured a beagle/hound type dog and a Westie.  You can see those dogs here:  LEGO Dogs to Build.

Ready to build?  Here’s how to build the dachshund:

Step 1:  Start with a flat 2 x 3 brick.

Step 2:  Add a flat 2 x 4 brick and a 2 x 1 flat brick with one stud on top.  The black brick will be the nose.

Step 3:  This step could be a 2 x 2 flat brick – we just couldn’t find one!

Step 4:  Build up the nose with four 1 x 1 sloped bricks.

Step 5:  Add a flat 2 x 4 brick and a 2 x 2 brick.

Step 6:  Find four 1 x 1 bricks with studs on one side.  Two are for the eyes, and the other two will hold the ears.

Step 7:  Add a 2 x 4 flat brick on top of the eyes and build up the top of the head as shown.

Step 8:  Turn the head over and add two 2 x 1 inverse slope bricks.

Step 9:  Stack the three pieces shown below.  Stick them between the two inverse slope bricks under the head.

Step 10:  Add the ears.  We liked the look of black ears, but brown would also be fine.

Step 11:  Start building the body.

Step 12:  Build the underside of the body as shown.

Step 13:  Build the legs.  The top two are back legs and the bottom two are front legs.

Step 14:  Flip over the body and add the legs.

Step 15:  Add slope bricks on the top of the body.  I used a one stud piece as a place to add the tail.

Put on the head and add the tail, and the dachshund is finished!

How to Build the Mastiff:

Since our week unfortunately included one child with a sinus infection, one child with a skin infection, and three with hand, foot, and mouth virus, plus our always-busy toddler, I was not able to take step-by-step photos for the mastiff.  I did, however, take views of all sides so that you can hopefully figure out how to make it.
